This stone semi-detached cottage is on a livestock farm two and a half miles from Staindrop, and sleeps six people in three bedrooms.

The Cote is a welcoming semi-detached cottage on a livestock farm in a rural setting near Staindrop. It has one double room, one twin and a room with adult bunks. There is a bathroom, a shower room and a ground floor cloakroom.

The kitchen has a dining area, and the sitting room is cosy and comfy. Outside is off road parking for three cars, and walks from the doorstep. The Cote makes a lovely year-round base for walkers or those hoping to enjoy the market towns, historic houses and beautiful scenery of this part of the country.


Everything exactly right!
Wonderful quiet retreat in a lovely-looking stone cottage, modernised within to a very high standard. Handily placed for many attractions in Teeside, Durham, Darlington and Barnard Castle areas. Dog-friendly too, with a field available for exercise.

Perfect holiday cottage
What a lovely cottage! We were greeted by John the owner, who is very friendly and helpful. The cottage is very well equipped and in excellent condition. Field opposite is great for kids and dogs to run free all day, plenty of animals to see on the farm also. It's in a lovely location. Highly recommended

A complete home from home with a friendly welcome
We booked through Sykes Cottages, whose properties we've used very successfully before. The Cote did not disappoint, the property was clean, cosy and well appointed: two great bathrooms with plenty of hot water plus a cloakroom/utility room, a spacious sitting room with three sofas - one each for me and my two girlfriends to crash out on at the end of a strenuous day out! The beds were very comfy - I slept in the room with adult sized bunks and got a really great night's rest every night. Good wifi service which we used extensively. Well equipped kitchen with lovely views. We enjoyed meeting the owners and chatting to them - thanks to them for showing us their own lovely garden :-) I would recommend it to anyone wanting a comfortable and modern home-from-home in the area - there's plenty to see and do there.
