Perfect Family Holiday Cottage
Myself and my 8 year old son stayed here for a week at the end of August 2017. The garden is fantastic for a boy that loves to kick a ball around, plenty of space and even the farm dogs joined in!! The cottage was beautiful with plenty of room. The kitchen had absolutely everything that we needed and was lovely to have a dishwasher with the tablets provided too. The dining area was great & the table was plenty big enough for 6 to sit. I cooked every night and every utensil was provided. The sitting room was very comfortable and cosy, but by no means small. Both bedrooms had lovely comfy beds and both with en suits baths & shower Everything worked & was clean. We were using it for a holiday but also for visiting family & we will definitely be back. There is plenty of things around for the kids to do within about a 30 minute drive. There's a co-op in Coxhoe village, about 5 minutes away, which is ideal. We enjoyed having visits from the farm dogs & chickens!! You can hear some noise from theA1 when sat in the front garden, but the noise certainly doesn't stop you sleeping. Perfect Holiday Cottage

Great Family space!
We were there for a week and absolutely loved the space we had! We were welcomed by one of the farm dogs, Monty? He loves playing with footballs and there were plenty in our yard. In the morning the friend brood of 5 chicken greets us and our 6 year old grand daughter was absolutely delighted with the close proximity to the farm animals. The house was well equipped and furnished. Having en suite bathrooms for both bedrooms was great! The location perfect for where we wanted go explore. Even the north east weather cooperated with us! We will keep this place in mind when we next travel that way again.

Being on a farm was excellent for young children. The property was welcoming and we had everything we needed.

Not such a quiet retreat
Lovely cottage on a working farm. Well equipped and comfortable..very helpful,especially with us oldies and out electronic stuff.. BUT despite the triple glazing and thick walls, the traffic noise from H .G V, so was unrelenting. It would have been difficult to sit out during good weather. Pitty as it was a superb place.

The property was clean, comfortable and warm. It was very convenient for visiting Durham. There was a working farm atmosphere which we enjoyed.
