We had wonderful vacation staying at Alwent Mill. The cottage is well kept, we had everything we had wanted. Being at the cottage felt like we wish we could stay for more. Garden and water stream were great place for our children. Location is perfect. We wormly recommend it. We would love to return there. Thank you mrs. Humpson.

Beautifully maintained cottage
We spent a week in this lovely cottage. Libby (the owner) was on hand to recommend local places to visit and good eateries and generally ensure that we enjoyed our holiday. The cottage is clean and homely and is in most beautiful surroundings. We would thoroughly recommend and look forward to making a return visit next year.

Very nice cottage, well organised in lovely surroundings
All the ameneties that you need were included. Very large sitting, dining and kitchen area, two weel fitted bedrooms and modern updated bathroom with bath and shower. Would definitely recommend and will almost certainly revisit.

We were looking for property for our week long break and decided on Co Durham where we found this cottage, near enough shops and places to visit but quiet and peaceful enough for a rest. This is it! We found the cottage had everything we needed including wifi and an honesty box for the use of the telephone in the cottage if we required to contact the outside world.. The area did not have great mobile coverage but when you want peace, then mobiles don't matter. There is a well looked after, 4 acre garden to enjoy in this peaceful area.

We had a wonderful holiday in this beautiful location.
