Comments by walkers who stayed at The Cumberland Inn in Alston on The Pennine Way
The two Johns stayed here and it was ok; the best part was warming up in front of a raging open fire having sloshed through the wettest rain we'd ever encountered! They also put our clothes in their drier for free.
Our Pennine Way tip- don't bother trying to re-trace your steps back to the Pennine Way- walk through the town and consider taking the steam train for a couple of miles North, and then just follow the old train track to Slaggyford- don't forget that when the PW was set out in the 30's this would have been a working railway and so the PW path (that meanders through muddy farm land) was needed to seperate walkers from the railway! If you do this you'll make cracking progress and we recommend you stay at Kellah (see next post)

Excellent place to stay. Just a few metres off the Pennine Way. Huge room, great food, friendly owners and staff. One of the best for us.
