Truly wonderful location...the perfect getaway
We really do run out of superlatives to describe how amazing the location of this property is. If you love the outdoors, if you're looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, if you love being surrounded by unspoilt countryside, away from the well-trodden tourist trails, then this really is THE PERFECT place to come. That is no over-statement. We stayed in Shepherd's Cottage for two weeks and we loved every minute of our time there - we will most certainly be coming back. Having stayed in many beautiful locations the length and breadth of the British Isles over the years, this definitely ranks very near top of the list in our estimation.
The cottage is a lovely place full of character, tastefully decorated and well equipped. No fixed line internet access, but we could get a good level of 4G mobile internet access (Vodafone), which was quite adequate; anyhow we were pleased to be able to escape the constant hassle of emails, etc, and just enjoy the peace and complete absence of 'noise' in all senses of the word.
Just a few minutes walk through a field, over a stile and you're on the Pennine Way, with the delights of Low Force (1 mile) and High Force (3 1/2 miles) within easy reach. Many other excellent walks possible right from the doorstep, offering access to breathtaking scenery and complete solitude. If you enjoy getting the map and compass out, as opposed to following the masses along well worn paths (eg well known region to the west!), then this area is the place for you; a short drive to most parts of the North Pennines offers a similar experience.
The owners, Mr & Mrs Scott, and their daughter, Karen, were very friendly and welcoming. We felt as though we were long standing friends coming to visit.
All in all, a wonderful experience we are desperate to repeat in the future. We are absolutely sure we will never tire of this place and its beautiful, idyllic setting.
We had an amazing time at the cottage. The owners were great, very friendly and welcoming. The cottage had everything we could need for our stay, can't wait to go again.
Can't wait to return
Had a four night stay at shepherds cottage end of Nov.weather was terrible but this cottage is so warm and inviting the weather doesn't matter.the Scott family who own the cottage make every body feel welcome.lots of walks so take good boots,the local pub is a must visit.everybody so friendly.allready booked for seven nights in March 2016.
What a fantastic place to stay, the owner and family made us really welcome. The cottage was lovely, warm and relaxing, and the scenery of the area was stunning. Hope to go again in March for a week.
The cottage was really lovely. It was set in a beautiful valley with the river Tees at the bottom and the Pennine Way running by it. I loved the fact that it felt like I was away from it all but that there was actually a village and a pub only a few minutes walk away. All that was visible from the cottage was the stunning scenery of the Tees Valley clothed in beautiful autumn colours. All in all it was exactly what I was after; a really lovely break in beautiful English countryside.
