Your Cumberland Country Retreat

With perfectly proportioned living and dining rooms, wood burning stove, a fully equipped kitchen and four comfortable bedrooms, each with its own unique colour theme, you will feel instantly relaxed when you walk in the front door of Salvin House. 

Our professional housekeeping team will prepare everything in readiness for your arrival, including a locally sourced welcome pack (with our compliments), logs for the stove, fluffy towels and crisp cotton linen on all the beds. So you can focus on relaxing and enjoying your rural surroundings. 

We welcome up to two small or medium-sized dogs, so long as their owners are properly trained and well-behaved, of course. 


Why Stay at Salvin House?


Everything You Need

If you're looking to get away from it all and spend your entire break without leaving the house, from a fully equipped kitchen to comfy beds, Sky TV and two bathrooms, we've got it covered. All four bedrooms at Salvin House are cosy, welcoming and comfortable.


On Your Doorstep

The beautiful and unspoilt market town of Alston lies at the heart of the North Pennines AONB. The Pennine Way runs right past the front door and there are multiple country walks within a few yards. With five pubs, great shops, a steam railway, and a motor museum, you can take a break from the car for a few days.


A Base for Exploration

If you love to explore, Alston is perfectly situated at the junction of three roads, which means Northumberland National Park, the Lake District and Teesdale are all within 40 minutes drive. Explore Hexham and Penrith, walk Hadrian's Wall, take a dip at Haltwhistle Open Air Pool, visit the historic Killhope Lead Mining Museum, or take a picnic to the High Force waterfall.
