Imagine total peace and quiet. Just the trill of bird song, the hush of the breeze and burble of your hot tub. Yours to relax in by day and by night. Welcome to the absolute cabin retreat.

Cabin retreat

They say it’s difficult to get away from all. A challenge to find a place where peace and quiet reign supreme. Even harder to bag a holiday with luxury touches at every turn. And as for reducing your carbon footprint at the same time… But take a look at Mount Hooley Lodge and you’ll see all those boxes ticked and then some.

Take the location. The cabin sits high up on the moors near Alston, with the South Tyne Valley stretching as far as the eye can see and in all directions. Imagine this from every window. Take a moment to picture the night sky – the Milky Way twinkles like nowhere else in the country here.

And where better to soak up this glorious silence and natural backdrop than in your hot tub on the terrace, and that’s at any time of day or night too. Bask in the sunshine or soak under the constellations. Enjoy too your views from the deep, deep leather sofas and armchairs in the living room - the vistas take centre stage. That’s truly something to look at.

This holiday home is no ordinary wooden cabin; Mount Hooley Lodge takes on a whole new dimension here. The giant logs themselves sit perfectly to create spacious and cosy accommodation for all of you. The open-plan living space includes a dining area under the beams that flows into the uber-modern kitchen, sleek in white, grey and steel. Sheepskin, antlers and wood stoves provide just the right rustic touches.

And then it’s eco-friendly. All your heat (water and underfloor heating throughout) comes from a ground source. Perfect insulation from top to bottom – including that extraordinary grass roof – offers supreme comfort and puts a big tick next to the sustainable box.

Bedrooms and bathrooms

Four bedrooms (2 doubles and 2 kings that are convertible to twins) are spacious and offer relaxing and cosy accommodation. All enjoy moorland views and log features. There are two bathrooms (1 with shower).


Lovely lodge, we had a great time & will definitely be going back. The owners are very friendly & made us feel welcome.

Miss T,

Wonderful property that would be difficult to improve upon.

Mrs R,

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!

Mr B,
