Enjoy a scenic ride through the beautiful South Tyne valley from Alston station. Just a short 6 minute drive from Nent Hall, this is a great day out for all the family, including your furry friends. Catch sight of deer, look out for soaring birds of prey, you may even glimpse a red squirrel all whilst on your journey through the North Pennines area. And why not take a stop off at The Crossing Café for delicious homemade food?
