A spacious, ground floor, self contained unit attached to a converted Methodist chapel close to the village of Garrigill in the remote North Pennines. It has parking, a private entrance and enclosed yard catching the evening sun. There is a well equipped kitchen with tea/coffee. The bathroom has a bath/shower and the bedroom has a double bed with two single pullout beds, both can be used in the living space on request. This is a quiet retreat for lone travellers, couples, families or friends.

The space
A beautiful waterfall flows directly outside the chapel. Garrigill, just five minutes walk away, is a quiet village with a shop and art gallery. At present the pub is closed for renovation but there are occasional pub nights in the village hall as well as other events. We are happy to provide transport to and from Alston if you travelled by foot or by bike and local taxi numbers. Alston itself is a bustling town with plentiful attractions, events, eateries, pubs and independent shops (although some do close at the start of the week in Winter). Also, nearby Nenthead hosts an Arts and Visitor centre which has numerous events on throughout the year. Please note that phone signal in and around the village is limited although some providers do work in the chapel. We also have Wifi and analogue TV with a number of channels. We are happy to accommodate you and your family including furry friends. Please let us know when booking how many to expect and how you would like the beds to be arranged as one pull out bed could also be used in the living area if necessary.

Where you’ll be

Alston, Cumbria, United Kingdom

If you're keen to explore the area on foot then the quietly spectacular Ashgill Waterfall is less than an hours walk away. You also need to look out for our local Red Squirrel population who visit the feeder on the bedroom window. There are a number of attractions a car ride away and the hosts are available to talk to you about these. A number of maps and leaflets are also provided in the annexe. Please see our guide which continues to be updated on Airbnb about local recommendations for restaurants, pubs and cafes nearby.

However, the beauty of Alston Moor is it's seclusion, peace and quiet. You will therefore find the chapel a very quiet place to stay making it ideal for a retreat for writers or musicians or just people who want to get away from it all.

My partner Moz and I love the outdoors and love to get away in our converted camper with the dogs. We appreciate real ale and good live music and the odd cold dip in a lake. We have recently moved to a newly converted chapel in Garrigill which is an ongoing outlet for Moz's creativity and design flair. Where possible we reuse and recycle wood and other "stuff" into beautiful and quirky creations. We are currently listing a bedroom in the chapel and a dog friendly self catering apartment which was once the old Sunday school.
