If you fancy relaxing on top of the world this is the place for you… but this Canadian log cabin is quite special, , it’s built from 12” diameter logs which also feature on the cabin interior. Beside the log burning stove the property is heated by a ground source heat pump which also supplies hot water to the property - an innovative eco- friendly cabin.

    Mount Hooley Lodge is simply stunning. It is extremely well appointed, spacious and has the most wonderful views. The bbq hut is a welcome addition and the hot tub perfectly placed to watch the sunset. If you can drag yourself away, there are lovely walks from Alston along the Rivers Nent and South Tyne. Special thanks to Chris and Marion who are the most wonderful hosts. The only downside was having to leave, but we will be back!

  • Mr Stronach

    We visit this property yearly and have done for several years. It never fails to impress. Chris and Marion could be nicer or ore helpful, even when we fail to find the the drawer of kitchen utensils or leave a dressing gown in the lodge ! We will return.

    We visited with friends this weekend and it will be hard to leave. The property is very well equipped and location on top of the world is a great description. We arrived on the Friday night after a hectic week at work and immediately felt at home. Hot tub just finished the day off and totally relaxed us all for a very comfortable nights sleep in four beautiful bedrooms with very comfortable beds. A short walk into the village on Saturday with some lovely little shops and a selection of different walks for all abilities in the area. This truly is the most relaxing place to come and I will definitely be booking it again soon for trips with other friends as well as the group this weekend who will make this a regular trip to wind down. Thank you to the lovely owners who made us so welcome and have made a beautiful experience for others.
