Sleeps 17 - 4 Bedrooms - 4 Bathrooms – Log Burning Stoves - Off Road Parking - Large Enclosed Garden
Temple Croft is a quirky period house with an abundance of traditional features and character allowing a warm welcome. The property has been restored with a glorious mixture of old and new. More recently, a large and cosy log burner has been installed in the dining room to supplement the newly renovated central heating for extra warmth and ambience during cooler periods.
Temple Croft is positioned at the heart of the beautiful and remote market town of Alston partially secluded within a large walled garden. Tranquil and picturesque, with centuries-old trees and attractive mature shrubs and lawns, this is the perfect area to stretch your legs or sit and take in the pure Alston air with a cup of tea or coffee.
Uniquely, Temple Croft boasts a purpose-built and secure bicycle lockup with maintenance area, e-bike charging points, outside hose/washdown facility and pressure washer. A through door reveals a spacious, centrally heated dry/wet room equipped with drying racks, washing machine and tumble dryer, plus a walk-in shower room and WC. The dry room doubles as a games room /den with a table tennis table and dartboard as an additional space for the kids – or adults! - to relax, have fun and play. Please note, young children must be supervised in the games room at all times.
Immediately adjacent (and connected by a door) to the main house, the dry room will come as a godsend for our more intrepid guests who have cycled or walked many miles over the moors to reach us in inclement weather.
There are currently four newly renovated rooms: The Bunkhouse, Laburnum, Yew Tree and Cherry Plum. All have modern en suites with fluffy white towels and complimentary toiletries, plus tea and coffee-making facilities, hairdryers, mini fridges, flat screen TVs (except The Bunkhouse) and boosted Wi-Fi.
The Bunkhouse sleeps up to eight guests in comfortable, adult-sized bunks. The large private bathroom is comprised of a shower bath and a separate cubicle shower, both with rainfall heads.
Laburnum is a family room which sleeps four in a super king OR full size twin singles and a full-sized bunk bed so is also ideal for sharing adults. The en suite has a shower with rainfall head.
Yew Tree is a triple room with en-suite shower bath with rainfall head, sleeping two to three, configured either as a super king and single bed OR three full size singles.
Cherry Plum is our double/twin room with an en-suite shower. Sleeping two, this can be configured as a super king OR full size twin singles.
The walled garden features huge beeches, pines and silver birches which tower over a secluded haven of mature shrubs, lawns and (in spring and summer) colourful borders - great for a hot, or cold drink or after-meal stretch of the legs.
Christmas - arrangements can be made directly with the owners for a fully catered Festive lunch or dinner during your stay
Please note this property is for family accommodation and quiet events only - strictly no parties.
The property has a small private parking area for cars and motorcycles and there is plenty of extra free off-road parking within a two-minute walk of the property.
