When 13th-century nuns founded a convent near Alston, they didn't suspect the town would one day provide the backdrop for a TV adaptation of the story of literature's most famous needy soul, Oliver Twist. Escapees looking to avoid the workhouse don't need to pick a pocket with a stay on the former nunnery site—now the luxurious Georgian Lovelady Shield Country House.
• An overnight stay for two people is £129 (up to a £274.90 value), or a two-night stay is £179 (up to a £439.95 value).
• Whichever option you choose, a full Cumbrian breakfast is included each morning.
• But the real treat comes in the form of the seven-course gourmet dinner taken at the two AA-Rosette-winning restaurant, where you'll tuck into dishes that blend the best of British with continental influences.
• Guests staying two nights who choose to dine again on the second night will receive a bottle of wine to accompany the cuisine.
