Fantastic holiday
Had a great stay with 4 dogs. Plenty of space inside the cottage. Gemma has taken the time to consider both owners and pets needs in the cottage and was constantly helpful through out the stay. Local area has lots of places in easy reach, with walks on the doorstep. Area is quiet and local neighbours were very friendly. We look forward to coming back.

So dog friendly
From the initial contact to the end all I can say was that Gemma the owner was so professional, caring and nothing was a problem for her. She went above and beyond. All I can say is Thankyou Gemma. As for the cottage, it was beautiful,clean and everything we wanted for our holiday. The log burning fire was just so cosy and gave out a lot of heat.we just can not wait to go back. The walks around the area near the cottage were lovely and our dogs had a great time running around all the fields. Best of all this is the most dog friendly accommodation we have stayed in. Gemma made us feel at ease with the dogs. Even provided throws for them to lie on. A huge box full of dog toys and balls she even gave us little clip ons to put on there collars saying they were on holiday(see pic). We thought this was a lovely touch. After all if our dogs are happy then so are we.

Cosy cottage in rural setting with great walks and very homely.
The location is great with walks on the doorstep and the town with some local amenities 2 minutes away. Good base for visiting Raby Castle, High Force Waterfall, Barnard Castle & Bishop Auckland. The cottage is very dog friendly with an enclosed garden and yard. Well equipped for us humans as well. The multi fuel was lovely to curl up in front of after a long day, and the roll top bath was a welcome treat . Two lovely bedrooms with great views, spacious lounge and good sized kitchen The owner had thought of everything, even leaving us a little welcome pack on arrival.

Highly recommend
Stone cottage is fantastic. My daughter and I had a great holiday using the cottage for lazy mornings and late nights. The owner has thought of everything, from decor to bedding and much more. The cottage had all we needed to cook nutritious meals and enough books, dvd's and games to keep us entertained throughout our stay. It is in a wonderful location. Thank you so much for creating such a great space.

Cosy, traditional cottage in a beautiful location with great walks on your doorstep
If you want to relax this is the place! A great wee find! The cottage is welcoming and very well appointed. The owner has thought of everything, even towels, toys and treats for the dog! A very nice welcome basket was much appreciated. There is a tv for DVDs, but no TV connection. Books and games are also provided. Lovely and cosy with the stove on. Comfortable sofa and beds. The cottage is in good location with lots of great countryside on the doorstep but also really close to the lovely towns of Bernard Castle and Bishop Auckland. Popped into the Royal Oak pub for a few drinks which is a friendly country pub with some outside tables for nice evenings. Some stunning castles close by. Raby Castle just a few miles away should definitely not to be missed and High Force waterfall is also a great day out. The hotel there does a great roast on Sundays. Then town of Bernard Castle is lovely to explore, a picturesque ancient town. Would definitely consider visiting the cottage again in the future.
