The cottages nestle in a secluded valley within our specialist Alpine Plant Nursery, just over a mile from the town of Alston. They are both ideal as a base for walking, cycling, touring, watching wildlife or just relaxing. Roe deer may wander by, red squirrels can be seen in the tall trees or on the nut feeder as well as many species of birds, nesting and visiting.

High up in the North Pennines, Alston claims to be the highest market settlement in England, being about 1000 feet above sea level. It is also remote, about 20 miles from the nearest town. From every direction Alston is approached over a broad, heather-clad Pennine landscape which has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Set on the upper reaches of the River South Tyne, it lies within the Eden district of Cumbria.

Alston has a steep cobbled main street with a distinctive market cross, and many stone buildings dating from the 17th Century. Next to the entrance to the Church, is a building dated 1681. The Angel pub to its left is dated 1611, and the white building left of the pub is dated 1687. It is a bustling town, with a reputation for delicious locally made specialities such as Cumberland Mustard, and Alston Cheese.

Contact us directly on 01434 381372 or email us at ghyllburn@plantswithaltitude.co.uk for further information and availability of both cottages.
