We're Good to Go

Welcome to Alston House

Our fabulous restaurant, bar and cafe with rooms located in the North Pennines in Cumbria

The warm colours and comfortable furnishings of the bar and restaurant with its open fire set the tone for your visit, whilst also allowing the opportunity to sample some of our fine, local real ales or our carefully selected range of wines before, or after dinner.

We offer a choice of eight bedrooms including single, double, twin and family bedrooms. All of the rooms have been refurbished and include luxury bathrooms, some with deep roll top baths for the ultimate in relaxation after a day on the fells. All rooms have new flat screen TV’s, free WiFi, a copious supply of teas, freshly ground coffee and cafetieres for the perfect cup of coffee. We also know how important a good nights sleep is and so we have replaced all of our beds to ensure you get the perfect nights sleep.
