We offer comfortable B&B accommodation in Alston, Cumbria, in the heart of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Alston is on the Pennine Way and the Coast to Coast cycle route, and there are endless other opportunities to enjoy walking and cycling in this beautiful area. There are many other ways to explore, with some stunning scenic drives in the North Pennines, and numerous other visitor attractions. Our B&B opened in Spring 2016, and The Top Cafe opened on 24 March 2017.
Ryder House is within the Conservation Area, in the heart of historic Alston. It was built around 1850, and has had a number of uses over the years. The property laid empty for several years until May 2014, when we moved in and started a major refurbishment. Below is a gallery of photos of Alston and the surrounding area that we’ve taken. We hope that you will choose to visit us in Alston!
