Welcome To Our Selection of Holiday Cottages

Alston cottages can be very reasonable value for the UK holiday maker - especially if you avoid the expensive school holiday times. The time of year, size and facilities can make a considerable difference, but sometimes you can get more than you need for the same cost.

As with any holiday, we encourage you to ensure that the facilities meet the needs of your fellow guests (or spouses). These days you can expect many properties to offer satellite or cable television, and some will offer wi-fi and other high tech options. However you may not want or need any of the super facilities and be happier with the simple things in life, perhaps a pint of beer in a local pub. 

Escape To Alston

Alston holiday accommodation rates increase in peak season, which is generally around the times of the school summer holidays. Mid-July til the end of August are the core weeks for the Alston school summer holidays. 

Half term dates are different for different schools, but normally summer half-term is around the first two weeks of June. Booking early is always a good idea. You have a much better chance of getting your preferred date and accommodation. But, that doesn't mean its impossible to get a late booking. 

Cottage agencies are growing in size as a greater number of independents sign up with them. As a consumer this has a positive impact - in theory the facilities and standards are kept to a pre-agreed level.

All About Cottages

Before you start to research your holiday accommodation, it's worth asking everyone what they are looking for. If you have young kids in the party you may want to think twice about open fires, and of course some of the oldest cottages may have lower ceilings than those you are used to. 

If you have a dog, you may like to bring him or her to Alston with you. If the description of the Alston cottage does not indicate that its pet friendly, please contact the owner before confirming the booking. 

We want you to have a great Cumbria holiday so we wish you the best of luck finding your perfect accomodation. 

Cottages For Holidays

Without a doubt the cottage holiday is becoming a more popular way to spend free time. It just seems a little pointless to fly half way around the world when there are so many great places to see in Alston. 

For friends, families or couples a holiday can be a valuable break from the daily grind. A cottage holiday can provide all the freedom without without the constraints of staying in an hotel or bed and breakfast. 

Say goodbye to the structure of fixed meal times, the frustrations of noisy room-mates that you don't know and irritating staff!
