Bridge House Wolsingham
What a delightful property. We had a wonderful holiday here in Pamela's property which adjoins her home. The house, area, setting, Pamela and the pets made for a wonderful time. Never been to this area of England before but had always wanted to visit as had family way back from Sunderland, Durham and Hartlepool. I also had a need to visit Seaham 25 miles away, and walk along the beach glass hunting. Which I managed to get to 4 times. The village of Wolsingham is lovely with a couple of good coffee shops, excellent gift shop and in the nearby village of Frosterly we had an amazing meal on our last night which was a good end to the holiday. Pamela made us feel very welcome and we knew we could ask information if needed and she is there should any problems arise - albeit there were none! We had a lovely time with Badger, Mika, Minty and Clem who is adorable and we nearly brought them all home!! Will definitely be trying to get back up to stay in Bridge House again. Would highly recommend Bridge House.

A great place to explore Weardale and the surrounding area
This is a fantastic cottage. We've stayed here twice now and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves both times. Pam, the owner, is friendly and helpful and on our first stay really went out of her way to help us out of a difficult situation. Bridge House is a lovely cottage with all the facilities you would expect and more. Our kids particularly loved the huge TV and Sky Cinema. Wolsingham is a really nice with a lot of walks which you can do from the cottage. If you pop into the Black Lion (and I recommend you do) they have a set of leaflets published by the council with various walks ranging from 3 to 7 miles from the village centre. Other attractions nearby are Hamsterly Forest (great mountain bike trails), Beamish open air museum, Durham (use the park and ride and if you go to the cathedral take advantage of a guided tour) and further afield Hardrians Wall (Housesteads Fort is amazing) is doable in a day. There are a few eating out options in the village. The star of the place is Bueno Appetito, a very good, but not cheap, Italian which is definitely worth a visit. There are three pubs in the village, the aforementioned Black Lion which doesn't do food, The Black Bull which had just changed hands on our recent visit and I think is planning on doing food and the Bay Horse which looked like it did decent pub meals although we didn't try them. There's also a pretty decent chippy and Chinese takeaway. The Chinese has some pretty bad reviews in TripAdvisor but we had absolutely nothing to complain about and would definitely use again. There are also two small Spar-type shops which are well stocked and a cash-point. All in all this is a great location for a holiday and Bridge House is the ideal place to stay.

A true gem of a holiday cottage.
This is a truly wonderful holiday cottage in a quiet location on the outskirts of the village. Not only is it exceptionally spacious but the range of facilities is amazing. The owner, Pam, is very welcoming and on hand if you need anything, nothing is too much trouble. The log burning fire was lit on our arrival which made the cottage lovely and cosy and our first evening there was spent watching movies on the huge TV, feet up sprawled out on the massive sofa. The beds are extremely comfortable and lend themselves to a great night's sleep. The kids didn't even have to fight over the best room as they normally do because both of the rooms available to them were gorgeous and each had a double bed. The kitchen has everything you need and we particularly appreciated tea, coffee and milk being available, not to mention the prosecco and chocolates! As if the kitchen isn't already enough, we made use of the barbecue one evening and sat out on the patio. Having two bathrooms makes the morning getting ready routine so much more relaxed especially with teenagers! Talking of teenagers, the all-important Wi-Fi was present and met their requirements, you can't get a better recommendation than satisfying two internet hungry teens. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this accommodation.

Fabulous House
Amazing house in a beautiful location. The house is comfortable, very warm (great log burner) and extremely well equipped. Large bedroom downstairs, with en-suite, was great for my elderly mum. Fabulous variety of toys and games for all ages, not to mention DVD's and Sky TV. Lovely welcome basket on arrival. Pamela ,the owner, is so friendly and helpful.Our 22 month old grandaughter loved Badger the dog and Brenda the (rather large) rabbit, not to mention the 2 cats. Wolsingham is a lovely village with a couple of good coffee shops and good pubs. great area for walking as well as visiting Beamish, Durham, Darlington and Newcastle.Can't wait to go back!!!

Beautiful little place
My family booked this place for a week, and we managed to stay here for one night. quite easy to find. lovely location. The place is amazing! loved the way it has been set out and decorated. The place is set out of the back of the owners house ( in the back door effectively ) It has a garden with swing and slide, few cats and a dog roaming about - all very nice, and all Badger ( the dog ) wants to do is play fetch. would love to stay here again! worth a visit!
