Location was lovely as we wanted a self contained garden that we could enjoy ourselves without sharing a communal one. Very comfortable and light and airy rooms and the conservatory was great for drying boots and watching the great outdoors when the weather wasnt so good.

If you enjoy solitude and nature on your doorstep then this is the perfect location, whatever the weather. The cottage has everything you need for a comfortable stay and all the furnishings are of good quality. A mix of modern and old are cleverly combined and the conservatory is the icing on the cake. You will need a car to access local shopping, Read morepubs etc and there are many excellent locations to visit within an hours drive. We loved it so much we have already booked another visit. Hide

The cottage isn't cheap but we liked the quiet location & it was very comfortable. The conservatory was a real boon & the garden was very pretty, especially this time of year. It allowed us to access the Durham Heritage Coast & enjoy walks along the Teesdale Way from Barnard Castle, across Bowes Moor & along the Pennine Way, around High Force, partRead more of the Weardale Way, as well as Hamsterley Forest.

The cottage is in a wonderfully peaceful location. Although it was clean and moderately well equipped, it would need a lot more TLC to make it top notch. Too many things needed attention. This review has to be brief, so as an example, I'll just mention the wobbly standard lamp. When I tried to switch it on, it flickered briefly then tripped the "fuRead moreses" leaving us in pitch black darkness. Looking on the bright side, at least I wasn't electrocuted! Hide

Although the the cottage was clean, comfortable and well equipped, we did not feel it warrantied a 100 refundable deposit. We were also disappointed to find that the bathroom and toilet could not have been further away from the main double bedroom. This was not made clear in the description of the property.
