Fantastically awesome
Lantern House, well what can we say - everything and more than the website envisaged. It was awesome the house was and the village/town of alston was so quaint and lovely, the people were very friendly and helpful. We only had a few days there but will definitely be returning for a longer spell. Thank you do much for this opportunity as I always read reviews and tend to book breaks on how other people review their experience. Kind regards The Filcock family

A superbly furnished house, with every little need catered for.
Lantern House, is based right in the middle of the market town of Alston which meant there was every amenity literally on our doorstep e.g. co-op, butcher, tea shops, chemist as well as numerous pubs and places for walking. The house itself has recently been refurbished and it has been done to a very high standard. With a very contemporary feel, the decor and furnishings etc are a delight. There is plenty of room for 2 families to stay there comfortably and with a playroom as well as a lounge, the adults could have their own 'space'! The utility/boot room on the ground floor was ideal to store all wet outdoor wear and with bedrooms on the 3rd and 4th floors, in an evening the adults could relax in the ground floor lounge, safe in the knowledge were were unlikely to wake up the children! The house has plenty of storage in all rooms and has been kitted out to cater to every need, whether it be for children (e.g. stair gates for every floor, loads of books and games in playroom) or the adults (e.g. very well equipped kitchen, study and Wi-fi available). Therefore, despite the poor weather, this was an excellent choice for a holiday rental over new year, which we all thoroughly enjoyed.
