Nestled near the banks of the tranquil River Nent, this elegant Georgian country house is home to three acres of secluded gardens and unspoilt views.

The guest rooms here adopt an elegant country design, with plush fabrics, cream overtones and traditional-style furniture. Classic rooms are perfectly cosy and offer an en-suite shower room.

Dining

Head chef Tom Orton – a Master Chefs of Great Britain winner with Michelin-starred experience under his apron – oversees imaginative seasonal menus in the hotel’s elegant restaurant. The bistro-style menu is served from 5pm-7.30pm (except on Sundays) and includes comforting classics such as fish and chips or rib-eye steak. From 7.30pm, you can indulge in the decadent four or seven-course tasting menu, served up with an award-winning wine list. Round off the night with a cocktail in the bar.

Please contact the hotel directly in advance if you have any special dietary requirements.

Location

The hotel sits near to the banks of the River Nent in the North Pennines, surrounded by the lush heather-clad fields of Cumbria, in the north of England. It is around two miles from the market town of Alston, where you’ll find cobbled streets, 17th-Century stone buildings and a reputation for its locally made mustards and cheeses.

You’re less than an hour’s drive from the Lake District National Park, and half an hour from the North Pennines, making the hotel an ideal base for a walking holiday. Hadrian's Wall is 24 miles away, and you can also reach the city of Durham, with its shops, restaurants and impressive Norman cathedral, in just over an hour.

What is a Smart Stay?

How are these deals different to your flash sales?

Some getaways are less about blowing the budget on a huge suite, and more about discovering a knock-out destination. When it’s the sights beyond the hotel walls you’re really interested in, it makes perfect sense to go for smart accommodation with great reviews, plenty of creature comforts and a price well below what you’d expect for the area.


And that’s what these stays are – ultra-affordable three- and four-star hotels chosen as carefully as our chicest five-stars. Whether it’s a well-picked base for London or a fly-and-flop break in the sun, you’ll find our Smart stays in savvy, accessible locations, usually with dinner included and other thoughtful extras that are the signature of a Secret Escapes holiday.
