A charming period holiday cottage on the pennine way in Alston, North Pennines 

Stokoe Cottage is a one bedroom Period Cottage set in the heart of Alston Town in the North Pennines.  The cottage dates back to 1611, and is tucked away from the main market square along a cobbled lane.  Alston claims to be the highest market town in England, being 1000ft above sea level in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  The town offers full amenities, including an array of shops, pubs, eateries and Post Office. Tourist attractions include the South Tyne Railway, Lead Mining Museums, Art and Crafts galleries, and the Pennine Way runs through the town, as does the Coast to Coast Cycle route.  Road links are good, being in the centre of the north and you can be in most major towns and cities to the East and West in around an hour.

The cottage is set over three floors. On the ground floor is a farmhouse kitchen with under stair feature pantry, and on the middle floor is a large living room with log/coal burning stove with many original features such as beams, wood floors, exposed stone walls and stunning views over the rooftops of the Butts area of the town to open countryside beyond. The top floor features a double bedroom with king size bed and bathroom off the landing.
