    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    Set in a quiet corner of the medieval cobbled area of Alston, this architect designed 'apartment-style' cottage has been imaginatively developed by the architect owner on the site of former C17 buildings. Millstream has been awarded four stars from Visit Britain and the Enjoy England Gold Award for outstanding quality, and was also part of a winning scheme in the Eden District Council 2009 Design Awards. It is owner managed and has its own individual charm and character, incorporating a wealth of attractive features including solid oak floors, exposed beams and many other interesting little details.

When we arrived, the owners greeted us and were so welcoming and friendly. When we entered Millstream we immediately fell in love with the place - it was even better than the photos.
