This delightful property is full of original features and plenty of character and has just one double bedroom and a single futon suitable for a child, so is best suited to a couple or a young family.

This grade II listed building - a pretty stone and slate structure – is situated on the owner's working farm on the edge of the village of Mickleton. This property was once the gardener's cottage though the property has undergone a tasteful and imaginative conversion since. The cottage now provides very comfortable and well-equipped accommodation with a number of character features such as sloping ceilings and exposed timber beams.

There is also and open-plan living area which incorporates a kitchen, dining table and sitting area which also has an electric coal effect fire. Surrounded by spectacular Teesdale countryside, this charming little building is well-positioned to offer visitors the very best of what the region has to offer.


A lovely little cottage which was very clean, and the owner was very nice. Had a lovely relaxing week.
Mr Link

A lovely cosy cottage in beautiful surroundings, and there were plenty of walks on the doorstep. We will definitely visit again.
Mr Ripley

The cottage was very cosy and in a beautiful part of the country.

Don't beleive what it says on the tin.
Nice area, good for walks, cycle rides and pubs. However the Agency's description of the property is very misleading. The property is very small and indescribably dark inside - you will have the (tungsten filament) lights on all the time. Yes, old cottages are dark, but the two windows on this property look out onto a grey 6' wall surmounted but a 20' yew and holly hedge. Early morning sun can't get in because of the trees on the other side of the lane. If you intend cooking anything much more than a tea bag you will find that difficult using the ancient microwave / combination and 2 ring electric hob which seems to get hot all over. If you bring in a takeaway there is no table to use*. If you eat it off your knees, there is not a coffee table to use. If you choose "al fresco", the "garden" is a gravel car park you will share with your neighbour, two wheelie bins and two dead pot plants. Upstairs there are two ill lit steps between the gallery bedroom and the bathroom which are a trip hazard at any time and at 2am in particular. At least gentlemen will know when they get there, because they will crack their head on the beam. Incidentally, there are no bathroom towels which is a bit rich for a 4 tick property. I am no architect but I suspect only the stone shell of the building is period and that everything else is 21st Century. * There is a "breakfast bar" but space is so limited we could not see how it was in any way useful.

Everything walkers with a dog could want from a holiday cottage. A cosy cottage with good quality appliances. The owner was friendly and most helpful. The cottage is in a perfect location, quiet but near enough to lovely walks & good pubs serving super food. The outside garden/courtyard area is fully enclosed so safe to let the dog roam. Certainly ticked all our boxes!
