Ghyll Burn Cottage

One of the finest holiday cottages in Cumbria, Ghyll Burn Cottage was converted from buildings dating back to approx 1680, at time when people lived upstairs and animals kept in byres underneath, Ghyll Burn Cottage is full of old world charm with beamed ceilings and a wood-burning stove.

Ghyll Burn Cottage is located in Alston, which nestles high in the North Pennines, with a steep Main Street, Market Cross and started in 2021 work will continue over the next few years to replace the cobbles for which Alston is famous.

The cottages nestle in a secluded valley within our specialist Alpine Plant Nursery, just over a mile from the town of Alston.

A good selection of shops serve our holiday cottages in Cumbria and  will meet all day to day needs. Post Office, well stocked Co-op, Wholefood Shop, Bakery, two garages serving fuel and a Butcher and delicatessen situated within the Spar shop. Add to this gift and craft shops, pubs, hotels, cafes, a book shop, hardware shop and a couple of ‘Takeaways’.

The roof joists in the living room are reputedly recycled ships timbers and the curve at the top of the stairs shows where the original spiral stone staircase would have been.

An outside stair leads up to a small balcony and entrance to the kitchen. This is fitted with  electric cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer and washer/dryer. The dining area has a large table and six chairs.

The Living room is open to the rafters, with a wood-burning stove, sofa bed and easy chairs, TV/DVD player. Guest Wi-Fi is available too. A small cloakroom offers W/C and washbasin on this level.
