Lovely well equipped cottage with a gorgeous hot tub. It was a little remote, but we loved it. We would book it again if we come up that way in a few years. Nice cake on arrival. Loved the little starter box too as it was helpful after a long journey.

County Durham is a beautiful area and the farm is in a truly lovely setting. The property is well kept. However that means it is very remote, along an unkept track which seriously needs large holes filling in. A fifteen to thirty minute drive on country roads to any restaurant, bistro or decent pub. Thus make sure self catering is really for you inRead more anything other than warm summer weather. Hide
