Take the Tour

Come in and take a look around Salvin House, luxury self-catering accommodation in Alston. Our characterful Cumbrian holiday let has everything you need for the perfect staycation

Entrance Hall

Running from the front to the back of the house, the Georgian entrance hall is the first room you enter at Salvin House. Towards the rear, you will find the grand Georgian staircase, with its feature window overlooking the rear garden. The downstairs WC and shower room leads off the hall.


Living Room

Our elegant living room includes built-in shelving either side of an inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove. Curl up on the Chesterfield sofa to enjoy the selection of books, play a boardgame, do a jigsaw, or watch Sky TV on the 50" UHD screen.

Dining Room

With its Pugin Red wall and fireplace, we wanted to make a bold statement in this room. We've also gone for a more modern furniture style to contrast with the Georgian features. The dining table can seat up to eight people and there's a comfy armchair in the corner for anyone who wants to relax in their own space.



Our fully equipped country kitchen includes an electric range cooker, American-style fridge freezer, built-in dishwasher and combination microwave oven. You'll find everything you need to for your glorious culinary creations and, if you don't want to be tied to the stove all day, there's even a slow cooker.


Master Bathroom

With a large double-ended bath that's big enough for two, our master bathroom - there's also a shower room and WC downstairs - is perfect for relaxing. We also have an invigorating shower over the bath and, thanks to our top of the range combi boiler, we guarantee you will never run out of hot water.

Blue Bedroom

Overlooking the rear garden, the blue bedroom features a rustic stone feature wall, original Georgian fireplace,  built-in wardrobes and plenty of storage. The bed in this room is a Kingsize Double with Sealy Posturepedic pillow top mattress.

Gold Bedroom

The largest bedroom at Salvin House features an opulent deep yellow period colour scheme on the original Georgian fireplace and the feature wall. There is plenty of storage, a Victorian dressing table and full-length mirror. The bed in this room is a Sealy Pocket Memory zip link, which can be made up as a Super King double or two full-size singles.


Heather Bedroom

The heather bedroom is the most traditional of our bedrooms, with a decorative scheme based on the colours of Alston Moor. With a traditional bed frame and antique furniture, it is designed to be calm and relaxing. The Kingsize bed in this room has a Silentnight Miracoil Ortho mattress with an IKEA latex mattress topper.

Green Bedroom

Small, but perfectly formed. The green bedroom is our smallest bedroom here at Salvin House. The full size single bunk beds both have comfortable pocket sprung mattresses, which means the room is suitable for little kids, big kids, and the young at heart.
