This elegant Georgian Country House Hotel stands on the former site of a 13th century convent on the banks of the River Nent, which nestles in the foothills of Alston Moor. There are 3 acres of secluded gardens in which to sit and relax whilst enjoying the unspoilt views of the surrounding countryside. For our guests who like walking there are many walks and public footpaths on the doorstep. There is an intimate cocktail bar along with a library and lounge with log fires. The highlight for many is dinner, which is served in our elegant dining room. The menu varies daily and is imaginatively prepared by our Master Chef, Mr. Barrie Garton. Our hotel is situated 2½ miles from Alston in Cumbria and is easily accessible from all parts of the UK. Our location makes it an ideal centre from which to visit the Lake District, Hadrian's Wall, the North Pennines, Durham Cathedral and the Yorkshire Dales. Return to escape the crowds and enjoy the experience of dinner with its luxurious food and wines. The hotel retains the ambience of a private residence and guests are warmly welcomed. We presently serve Sunday luncheons on the first Sunday of each month, however, due to popular demand we are considering serving them on more than one Sunday each month. Our food has been awarded Two Rosettes for its high standard.
