This imposing 17th Century town house stands prominently in the centre of Alston, the highest market town in England. Having been newly refurbished, Lantern House has been transformed into a contemporary styled four storey period holiday home with a boutique feel. It is ideally suited to a large family, families and friends meeting up or groups to enjoy a restful holiday as the second and third floor each have 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. Kids will love having their own sitting room with a TV, video games, plenty of toys and board games to keep them entertained on the first floor, while the adults can chill out in the stylish, tastefully decorated ground floor lounge. Alston has a good range of shops selling local produce, cafes and pubs all a short walk from the front door. From here you can tour the vast open expanses of the North Pennines, moorland designated an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' and the northern region of the Lake District including Rheged at Penrith and Ullswater. Visit the many Roman Forts and Museums along the length of Hadrian's Wall. Steam trains run along a narrow gauge line winding northwards from Alston Station throughout the year taking visitors on an excursion lasting half an hour along the South Tynedale Railway line. Walking, mountain biking and golf are available locally.
