In addition to the double bedroom, the cottage offers a fitted kitchen and sitting room.


Absolutely lovely place to stay
Kings cottage is in a quiet mews in the lovely town of Alston. It's a beautifully kept property with a well equipped kitchen and large lounge with very comfy sofas and a gas fuelled woodburner. Upstairs there's a spacious bedroom with the most comfortable bed ever and a bathroom. The owner has thoughtfully renovated the property throughout and it's really like home from home with a homemade cake to welcome you on arrival. The cottage is a few minutes walk to the town which has various shops and amenities. We loved it. Hopefully you will too!!

The cottage was cosy and very warm and welcoming. The owner gave clear instruction on accessing property and was very helpful on places to eat and walks to go on in Alston. All in all, a great escape and much needed tonic.
Mrs Connell

The cottage was lovely and spacious, everything went very smoothly. It was very dog friendly, very good value for money and a lovely place to stay. There were nice walks, and plenty of places to eat and drink, would highly recommend.

A beautiful cottage and superb location with a very helpful landlady.

The cottage is beautiful, even better when you see it for yourself. The owner is really nice and very informative. Everything you need, a very well equipped cottage. It is set in a lovely location and the locals made us feel so welcome, the dog included, it was nice. Pubs and supermarket really close and nice quaint shops. Would highly recommend and will be sure to return. Thanks to the owner for making our trip special :)
