Locally, there is a good choice of local amenities with supermarket, restaurants, public houses and selection of shops. The town provides both primary and secondary schooling and a range of professional services. Alston Moor has a golf club and other popular local sports include fishing and shooting. For more comprehensive facilities, Carlisle, Penrith and Hexham are extremely accessible and provide excellent shopping, entertainment and leisure facilities.
