The space
Masonic House lies in the very heart of Alston, nestled between centuries old inns and churches on a narrow lane just off the cobbled main street.

Built in the 1600's, Masonic House has recently been refurbished to provide a comfortable and stylish interior, with a small forecourt to the front of the cottage in which to relax and enjoy the views of St Augustine's church and the distant hills.

From the front entrance you enter into a large welcoming kitchen. The kitchen has everything you would expect from a country kitchen, from its handmade oak units, the large Belfast sink and double oven to more modern expectations, such as the American style fridge offering ice and filtered water, to the dishwasher and washing machine. The kitchen is set around a large oak table, perfect for family and friends to gather around and waste away time over meals and drinks.

The kitchen leads into the lounge, which offers two plump leather sofas and a tartan armchair, where you can relax in front of the fire after a day of walking the fells or exploring. The lounge has period features from its time as a stable, with its arched stable window. The lounge Is equipped with a good selection of local books, a large TV and DVD player and a selection of board games.

Upstairs you will find the bedrooms and bathroom. The house offers a spacious king size bedroom, with a large triple wardrobe, a good sized double room and comfortable bunkroom. The bathroom is bright and modern, with a bath with shower over.

We only accept 7 night breaks over the summer holidays, starting on Saturdays.

The house is dog friendly- we just ask that they do not go in the bedrooms or on the furniture.

Location

Alston, United Kingdom

Masonic House is on Kings Arms Lane, which is just a few metres off Alston's main cobbled street, just behind the famous Angel Inn, which was built in 1621. The house overlooks St Augustine's church and is located next door to St Wulston's shared Catholic and Methodist church.

It is only a 5 minute walk to the South Tyneside Narrow Gauge Railway , the highest narrow gauge railway in Britain. Being in the very centre of Alston, a great selection of inns, shops, cafes, restaurants and walks are only moments away.

For the keen walker, Alston is situated on the Pennine Way, South Tyne Trial and Isaacs Tea Trail.
