With one double bedroom and one family room, this spacious and comfortable property can be used for either a family gathering or a group of friends and comes with a beautiful rear garden ideal for al fresco dining or relaxing with a good book.

Situated on the outskirts of the delightful village of Middleton-in-Teesdale and just 10 miles from Barnard Castle is this early 18th Century stone-built semi-detached cottage. Full of charm and character, this property offers outstanding views of the surrounding fells and is able to sleep five people. The cottage is well situated for all the local amenities of Barnard Castle and is a good base for those wishing to experience 'village life', as there are a number of shops, pubs and village walks very close by.


I've been visiting Middleton since I was a kid so finding West House was the cherry on the cake. The location really is stunning, as is the house. It speaks volumes when I say that I really can't think of anything to complain about! Thanks, Sally-Anne and Andrew, for a great experience. I'll take the opportunity to put in a good word about the nearby Forresters Arms restaurant. Superb French cuisine - so don't miss out on it!

The photos do not do this cottage justice! Cosy, beautifully decorated, ideal location and the owner was attentive but not intrusive. Owner has a farm & we were able to see some lambs being born and bottle feed some too! We were supplied with fresh eggs from the farm plus a basket of goodies on arrival. We walked the Pennine way to High Force, the scenery is spectacular. We watched rabbits playing and lambs frolicing in the field opposite. The village of Middleton in Teesdale is small, with a couple of hotels/bars and cafes with some independent shops. Well worth a visit!

For a Aussie this is a place dreams are made of.
This was the second time we've visited the West House that is owned by a very friendly couple, Sally Ann and Andrew Teward. The cottage is made of local stone and has been fully modernized inside to a very high standard. It contains a huge kitchen/diner, two cozy reception rooms and a bathroom and two very large bedrooms upstairs. The cottage has stunning views from every window and it's not unusual to see the likes of rabbits and pheasants roaming around. The town of Middleton In Teesdale, has all the necessary amenities. For a market town, Barnard Castle is a short drive away. For the keen angler, the Tewards have fishing rights to a section of the Tees River and welcome anglers. The Grasholme Reservoir is only 3 miles away and offers great angling for reservoir trout.

New Year Heaven
Stayed for 2 nights New Years Eve and New Years Day and it was a real relaxing treat. The house was spotless and so very welcoming with everything we needed, even a bottle of prosecco to toast the New Year. Landlady popped in to say hi and make sure we had everything we needed, she even took the time to give us the best routes to go for a morning run with our two young children too which was really appreciated. Both adults and children loved our stay from the warm cosy atmosphere to the nice walk into the village where we were greeted by the friendly locals....some great places to eat too.....

This cottage is in a quiet, friendly village and has lovely views. All the rooms are large, but also very cosy. We had a lovely, relaxing break enjoying the surrounding countryside. I have already recommended it to friends and we will be back for another visit.
