“Fantastic!!!!”
Reviewed 25 September 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This was my first visit to Alston & staying at Granville House made the whole experience fantastic.

I stayed here with a group of friends to celebrate a 40th birthday & it was just perfect! It's full of character which sets it apart from other cottages & lodges I've stayed in before. There's lots of fun to be had here too with the brilliant basement complete with neon lights & a pool table.

The place is immaculately clean which is what everyone wants isn't it?

Local amenities are on the doorstep to keep you well stocked up for nights in or to keep you entertained if you feel like venturing out for a beverage or bite to eat.

I highly recommend this little gem & already booked up again for a winter break in December.

“Excellent, lovely stay can wait to go back.”
Reviewed 20 September 2015 for a stay in April 2015

I stayed at Granville house with my girlfriend over a weekend and absolutely loved it. The house itself is fantastic. Stone walls, great decor and a lovely fire. Great location for walks and loads of pubs within 1 minute walking distance. Co op and spar shop also within 1 minute walking distance which was really handy for shopping and essentials.

Absolutely loved the pool table and spent hours on it. The bar next to the pool table is also a great touch to the cellar. Beds were comfortable and all rooms were very clean. Wifi access was also very good to have.

We know Alston well and know how much snow they get there in the winter, so we are definitely planning on going back over Nov-Jan with a group of friends.

Definitely recommend.

“Lovely, comfortable period cottage. Great for larger family group.”
Reviewed 14 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Granville house is a lovely, quaint, period cottage which has been decorated with care to include furniture and objects which are really in fitting with the period feel. The cottage is clean and well cared for and the games room/bar in the cellar was a great bonus for us, having 3 boys with us. The town of Alston is on the doorstep with a Co-op and Spar handy for supplies, interesting gift shops and galleries, as well as pubs, fish and chip shop and a hotel (where we had a lovely meal). The boys enjoyed the recreation centre in the village which has a modern playground and there was a large field ideal for exercising the dog parallel to the cottage. We were well placed to visit Hadrian's Wall, Keswick and Carlisle. There are some good walks from the doorstep including parts of the Pennine Way and the south Tyne trail (which we followed beside the South Tynedale railway).
The cottage was a great base for a summer holiday.

“A lovely house in a great location”

We've always loved visiting Alston and this was the first time we'd stayed for any length of time. The central location of Granville House was perfect, with pubs and shops within a couple of minutes walk.

The house itself was beautiful and full of character, well equipped, and spotlessly clean. Lots of period features with modern touches (we didn't get a chance to try out the sauna!). The lounge with its real fire was a lovely place to relax, and the basement bar was great fun!

We highly recommend a break here and hope to return soon!
