    "Lovely little cottage set outside the village so lovely and peaceful, great views from the living room of the falls, everything we needed was provided. There were some lovely walks close by for taking the dog along, he is old now so doesn't go far but it was possible to walk as far as you liked if you wanted to.Overall a really lovely relaxing couple of days."

    "Our week at the Milking Parlour was extremely pleasant and relaxing. Set in lovely countryside with Alston in easy walking distance. It was slightly smaller than expected, but no problem for 2 and a dog. The owners were very pleasant and helpful, but didn't pester you at all. If we returned to the area then we would stay there again."

    "A welcome break in a very scenic part of the country."

    "We had a wonderful stay at the milking parlour, a real cosy little cottage that provided everything we could ask for and more. Tammy, our Jack Russell made herself right at home instantly. The views from the patio were lovely. Would highly recommend for any couple wanting a relaxing week away from home. Sheila was a very pleasant and friendly host. Would definitely go back again."

    "Milking Parlour is a good base for exploring the North Pennines. Alston is in walking distance or a short drive away. The range of shops is somewhat restricted but the co-op has enough for basic needs."
    Adrian ‐ 30 Mar 2019
    "Scenic views, in quiet and restful location, ideal for walking Pennine Way, steam railway and visiting Hadrian’s Wall."
