Garden House
Ranked #11 of 14 Alston B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here on our rest day of the Pennine Way, so stayed here for 2 days. It was the perfect place for a rest day, and I highly suggest it.

Sue and Jim gave us a warm welcome and were very hospitable at all times.

The rooms were clean and tidy, and the beds were very comfortable. It is located 20 minutes away from a waterfall where you can swim and jump off it.

The breakfast was delicious, with many options to choice from, such as fruits, crumpets, yogurts, and much more. It has the reviews that it deserves. I give it 5 stars!

Keep it up!

Having done most of the long distance walks in Britain you can imagine the diversity of the B&Bs we have stayed in over many years.

This is THE best I've ever stayed in by far. We have a separate annexe with full size bath and powerful shower. The TV is a good quality flat screen with Freesat. The decor is high quality and towels etc superbly fluffy.

The highlight is breakfast in the conservatory. Cereals, real coffee, fruit juices, crumpets, fresh fruit, and the list goes on! Best breakfast ever ( apart from Jebel Ali hotel in Dubai lol)

Sue and Jim are attentive but stay in the background but nothing is too much trouble.

There is a secluded outdoor patio area for the 2 annexe rooms with chairs and tables. We got an Indian takeaway from the Victoria Spice restaurant and brought it back to have a meal outside as the weather was superb.

This should be a must place to stay if you are visiting or passing through Alston. 5*

We recieved a lovely warm welcome as soon as we arrived at Garden House. Nothing was too much trouble for Sue. The room was perfect, spotlessly clean with a lovely comfy bed. Good shower & plenty of hot drinks. Secure storage for our bikes as we were cycling C2C. Fortunately the weather was good enough to allow us to sit outside on the private patio. Delicious continental breakfast, lots of choice & lovely fresh fruit. We will be back!
