Places to Visit
Salvin House is an ideal location to explore Cumbria, Northumberland and Teesdale. Here are just a few of the sites and attractions within 40 minutes of your self-catering holiday cottage in Alston.
Stretching 73 miles from coast to coast, Hadrian’s Wall was built to guard the wild north-west frontier of the Roman Empire. Discover the remains of the forts, towers, turrets and towns that once kept watch over the Wall. The wall is just over half an hour away, north of Haltwhistle.
When there's enough snow, you can ski at Yad Moss, one of England’s few real-snow ski and snowboard areas, just 11km to the south if Alston. With England's longest ski tow and multiple runs, it's a genuine winter sports experience. Whoever said there was nothing to do in Alston out of season?
