Great location to explore the Weardale region. Really clean, comfortable and well equipped cottage.Although the pub opposite is not dog friendly, there are plenty of pubs in the area which are dog friendly and do food. There is a small park/ riverside walk just off the road to Brotherlee (opposite the cottage) which we used every morning for our doRead moreg to stretch her legs before we went exploring for the day.

The cottage is fully equipped with all you need and the wood burner was perfect on a chilly night. The owners provided us the information we needed for a brilliant weekend break. There are some fabulous walks nearby and the pub across the road offers friendly staff and great food.

We had a superb week, weather was mixed but we enjoyed every minute. The cottage was brilliant, clean, comfortable & with nice touches. Loved the coffee machine with plenty of capsules for our use. The garden & games room was an added bonus, we enjoyed evenings sitting in the garden with a G&T. Lovely meals at Lord crewe Arms in Blanchland & the BlRead moreack Bull inn in Frosterley. A good day out at the Beamish Museum & High Force, all worth a visit. Beautiful walks will definitely be back Hide
