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.

We visited with friends this weekend and it will be hard to leave. The property is very well equipped and location on top of the world is a great description. We arrived on the Friday night after a hectic week at work and immediately felt at home. Hot tub just finished the day off and totally relaxed us all for a very comfortable nights sleep in four beautiful bedrooms with very comfortable beds. A short walk into the village on Saturday with some lovely little shops and a selection of different walks for all abilities in the area. This truly is the most relaxing place to come and I will definitely be booking it again soon for trips with other friends as well as the group this weekend who will make this a regular trip to wind down. Thank you to the lovely owners who made us so welcome and have made a beautiful experience for others.Joanne Shields, Northumberland - 14th May 2017
