Description

Standing on the wooden decking or relaxing in the hot tub in front of Mount Hooley Lodge you could almost say you were on top of the world. The panoramic views looking across the South Tyne Valley are absolutely awe-inspiring. This is not your average run of the mill lodge but a stand alone Canadian style log cabin constructed from massive inter-locking logs measuring over 12 inches in diameter, a unique feature both inside and outside. The hot water and heating are produced from a ground source heat pump and the roof is covered by grass which provides excellent insulation, together making this a completely innovative eco- friendly building concept. Mount Hooley Lodge is located on a working upland hill farm, 1200 feet above sea level, on the moor above Alston, which is the highest market town in England. For peace and tranquillity it would be difficult to find a more idyllic spot. The five star luxury can be enjoyed whatever the weather and at any time of the year. In summer the wide bi-fold patio doors to the front of the lodge can be completely opened creating a picture frame to admire the view, or you can chill out in the hot tub under the clear starry skies. In contrast during the colder winter months the log burning stove creates a warm and cosy environment to relax and recharge those batteries. Alston has an eclectic mix of shops selling local produce, unusual gift shops, cafes and pubs. There is a narrow gauge railway with steam trains running on selected dates throughout the year on a half hour journey from Alston. This region is known as England's last wilderness with fantastic walks along unspoilt nature trails with an abundance of wildlife to observe along the way.

Reviews

Mount Hooley Lodge is simply stunning. It is extremely well appointed, spacious and has the most wonderful views. The bbq hut is a welcome addition and the hot tub perfectly placed to watch the sunset. If you can drag yourself away, there are lovely walks from Alston along the Rivers Nent and South Tyne. Special thanks to Chris and Marion who are the most wonderful hosts. The only downside was having to leave, but we will be back!
