Alston may have provided the backdrop for a TV adaptation of Oliver Twist, but Escapees looking to avoid the workhouse don't need to pick a pocket with a stay at the luxurious Georgian Lovelady Shield Country House.

The Package
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).

The Best Bits
A seven-course menu fit for royalty. Bring an appetite.
• Pitched in a pretty, historic town.
• Plenty of gorgeous scenery to explore in the surrounding area.

The Property
Steal away with a partner in your comfortable Superior Room, and enjoy views of the charming three-acre garden, the River Nent, and the foothills of Alston Moor.

The Food & Drink
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: enjoy the likes of pan-fried scallops with black pudding fritters, a roast rack of lamb with rosemary jus, and a chocolate and chestnut marquise with honey glazed figs. Guests staying two nights who choose to dine again on the second night will receive a bottle of wine to accompany the cuisine.

The Location
The pretty market town of Alston (one of the highest in the country, 1,000 feet above sea level) is studded with craft, gift, and antique shops, or if you want to go further afield, try a driving tour through the lovely villages and stunning scenery of the North Pennines, or a circular tour of the Lake District.

• Stays on a Saturday night and bank holidays are subject to a £30 supplement.
• This Escape is for two people. Children are welcome; contact merchant directly for more information.

  • "There's a genteel, unspoilt feel to this elegant Georgian country house built on the site of a thirteenth-century convent by the banks of the River Nent."
