An extremely well presented and cosy cottage, standing in a stunning location on top of a hillside. The d?cor and furnishings were of a very high standard, and the cottage was well equipped with everything necessary for a short stay. The cottage was warm and welcoming, with amazing views from every window. A very quiet location, perfect for a restful getaway. The bunk beds and toys were great for children and the proximity to local walks and attractions such as the Weardale railway, made for a very enjoyable short break.
Mrs Savage

A gorgeous converted barn, slept amazingly. The location was beautiful, very remote, the photos don't do it justice. The owner was really helpful too.
Miss Todd

The property over all was wonderful, the pictures do not do it justice, in my opinion. My young boys enjoyed the added games and books in the cottage and my four year old told me it was his favourite place. The rooms were all lovely and big and the beds were so comfortable!
