Escape Kit

  • Two-Night Stay for Two People in Superior Room, with 10% Dinner Discount and Wine If Dining (£109)
  • Or, Two-Night Stay with Seven-Course Gourmet Dinner in Two AA-Rosette Award-Winning Restaurant (£169)
  • Daily Full Cumbrian Breakfast with Both Options

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 elegant Georgian Lovelady Shield Country House.

Stay
A two-night stay for two people is £109 (up to a £295.95 value). 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. If you want to sample the fine fare served up in the property's celebrated restaurant, add a seven-course tasting dinner on one evening to your two-night stay for £169 (up to a £383 value).

Eat
Whichever option you choose, a full Cumbrian breakfast is included each morning. If you opt for the option without dinner and later choose to dine, you'll receive a 10% discount on dinner and a bottle of wine to accompany the cuisine. If you do choose the seven-course gourmet dinner option, you'll dine at the two AA-Rosette-winning restaurant and 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.

See
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 the hotel staff consider you a friend, and will provide you with the necessary nous for a driving tour through the lovely villages and stunning scenery of the North Pennines, or a circular tour of the Lake District.
