Fantastic Stay
We have just got back from staying at Low Shipley Cottage & would recommend it to anyone. The owners, Derek and Nina, are fantastic. Nothing was too much for them. The cottage itself is absolutely beautiful, much bigger than the pictures seem, spotlessly clean. The hot tub was a great addition to the cottage. The location is stunning, the track down is quite uneven but don't let this put you off. The views are breath taking! Stargazing was great on clear nights. We will definitely be returning very soon.

Amazing Cottage
We have just been to Low Shipley Cottage and what a fantastic week away. We wanted a perfect, relaxing week in a great place. Low Shipley did not disappoint. The pictures do not do the cottage justice, the bedrooms and bathrooms are hotel standard, the kitchen in well equipped and the living room is large, but very cozy. The hot tub, wood fired, is great, the view from the hot tub is to die for. Even in the winter weather it was great. The road to the cottage is partly unmade but was fine. The hosts are very friendly and helpful when we needed anything. They are seriously undercharging for the cottage??all in all, an amazing week in a perfect cottage.

One word...... Amazing
If you are going to stay in a cottage for a mini break, this is the place to book. Very quiet, scenic and friendly owners. The owners would bend over backwards to help with your stay and really made the hole experience so perfect. The hot tub in the cottage was excellent and has stunning views. The cottages have ample space and cannot hear other people within other cottages due to super thick walls. Plenty to be able to do round the cottage with the village Barnard castle. Overall, I cannot rate this place any higher or the staff. Will 10000% be returning in the future.

Just what we wanted
Review long overdue. Circumstances! We have only recently been staying in holiday cottages and I soon learned to pack my own cleaning things. Not needed here, I didn't even take them inside as the bathroom was perfect, the cleanest I have encountered . A real credit to the owners. No sign of any previous residents.,what a lovely start to our short break. The bedrooms were lovely; simply furnished with such comfortable beds , nice bedding and very quiet. Plenty of places of interest to visit locally, excellent transport to go further afield, perfect peace at ' home' ' if that is what you want. Only regret? Not taking my telescope for those night skies. Next time!

We were very pleased to find everything so clean and welcoming. The beds were extremely comfortable and the area so quiet, perfect for a very relaxing week where it was so easy to combine visits to towns and cities with enjoying the lovely countryside.
