Hotel in England's highest market town changes hands

Michael and Carol Allchorne have moved from Beverley on Northumberside to run the hotel and restaurant in Alston, Cumbria, on the main road from Penrith.

Accommodation at the hotel - parts of which date back to 1780 - includes six en-suite bedrooms to sleep 15 guests and a self-contained three-bedroom owners' flat.

Dining facilities include a 100-seat bar/restaurant with a Victorian fireplace and raised seating area, a 22-seat private dining room/breakfast room, and a 25-seat café.

The business turns over £202,801 a year.

The Manchester office of Colliers Robert Barry sold the freehold off a guide price of £495,000 on behalf of Michael and Sarah Glass, who have retired.
