Mount Hooley Lodge is a Canadian style log cabin constructed from massive inter-locking logs measuring over 12 inches in diameter, a unique feature both inside and outside. It's located on a working upland hill farm, on the moor above Alston. Standing on the wooden decking or relaxing in the hot tub, the panoramic views looking across the South Tyne Valley are absolutely awe-inspiring. After enjoying the views, cuddle up around the log burning stove and recharge those batteries.

The space

Amazing 35% Discount on full week bookings! (7 days or more)

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 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.
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.

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.

Great lodge, great views and location. Nice place to chill out with the family and enjoy the hot tub and surrounding locations. Marion and Chris are great hosts. The lodge was very clean and has everything you need for a lovely break. Will definitely try and return here again.

The group of us absolutely loved the lodge, it was beautiful! Everything we could ever need for a great stay was on hand. The place was very clean and well looked after, and I especially enjoyed the open layout of the lodge. The road up to it was a bit daunting bit but you do get used to it. Thank you for letting us use your lodge! We were all sad to leave, 3 nights was just not enough!

Peaceful setting on a hillside with beautiful views. We choose this place for a family celebration and it was ideal, having a lovely open plan central living area for relaxing, cooking and dining... and a spacious outdoor area with barbecue and hot tub. The latter proved very popular! The owners, who were very pleasant and helpful, live nearby in the farm house but did not in any way interfere with our privacy. The kitchen was very well equipped and the whole place was attractively designed and decorated. I would not hesitate to recommend it!

A super place for a reunion with friends and family. Comfortable accommodation for four couples, well equipped and a brilliant view. Great to hang out at the property with the hot tub, lovely walks and cycling. Good food available in Alston.
