Having done most of the long distance walks in Britain you can imagine the diversity of the B&Bs we have stayed in over many years.
This is THE best I've ever stayed in by far. We have a separate annexe with full size bath and powerful shower. The TV is a good quality flat screen with Freesat. The decor is high quality and towels etc superbly fluffy.
The highlight is breakfast in the conservatory. Cereals, real coffee, fruit juices, crumpets, fresh fruit, and the list goes on! Best breakfast ever ( apart from Jebel Ali hotel in Dubai lol)
Sue and Jim are attentive but stay in the background but nothing is too much trouble.
There is a secluded outdoor patio area for the 2 annexe rooms with chairs and tables. We got an Indian takeaway from the Victoria Spice restaurant and brought it back to have a meal outside as the weather was superb.
This should be a must place to stay if you are visiting or passing through Alston. 5*
