With fields at the front and the river at the back, it is a haven of peace and tranquility with an abundance of wildlife. There is also private fishing and a tennis court.

Ideally situated for exploring the market town of Barnard Castle with its antique shops and Bowes Museum, Teesdale and the North Pennines AONB, Durham and the Yorkshire dales, while the Lake District is 1 hour away.The nearest pub is a 10 minute walk and the Teesdale Way passes close by.

A super break in a lovely cottage- walks in the woods, feeding the chickens and lots of fresh air- with a beautiful view of the river! Thank you for a great holiday.

We brought our grandaughters ( 8 and 6 years) and as soon as we got there they thought it "Ace".They spent a great deal of their time with the hens., Great position with lovely walks from the doorstep, helped by good weather. Halloween was great...More
