My husband & I stayed in Wellhope View, the 2 bed conversion of John & Jane's at Hudgill for our honeymoon in April. We've wanted to have a holiday in England for a few years now, but it's always been so expensive, so it was wonderful to have this gorgeous conversion to stay in at such a reasonable price.
First of all, both John & Jane made us feel really welcome when we arrived, without being obtrusive. Then we got into the cottage... stunning. It's been beautifully renovated to the highest standard - underfloor heating made it extra special. The room was lovely, with an en-suite with a brill shower. And the views from the lounge... breathtaking.
We were really lucky with the weather as the sun shone all week, and the location is perfect for wanderings regardless of how unfit you are! Made us wish we had a dog...! Alston's a lovely town with everything you need, but to get to the Lakes or the 'civilisation' of Newcastle (!!) would have been easy - had we not wanted to just stroll about!
I would recommend this place to everyone - and have been doing so!
