This is a very nice, well-equipped cottage - small, but fine for two people. Excellent value. Spotlessly clean. Nice welcome from the owners. Left in peace for the week, but owners available if needed. Isolated & peaceful location. A long way from anywhere to eat out (10 miles to nearest pub that allows dogs inside), but ok if you're happy to fullyRead more self cater. Plenty of good places to visit within 40 mins drive. Recommend: Vindolanda, Hadrians Wall, Beamish, Durham. Waskerley Way is good walk Hide

Had a lovely week at Curlew Cottage, looked after by very hospitable and welcoming hosts. Accommodation was very comfortable and cosy. The hosts provided plenty of helpful tips and advice about the location, sites to visit how best to travel an park, plenty of places to find refreshments and to eat.

Delightful cottage but a little remote for me. It is about 15 mins drive from nearest grocery shop. Needless to say it is well equipped and very comfortable. It is in a pretty scenic area and very peaceful.

Delightful cottage in peaceful surroundings. Owners very welcoming, and extremely helpful. The cottage is within easy reach of the Waskerley Cycle Trail, which links with 3 others in the area, and as such a window on the wonderful countryside.

Curlew cottage was a great stay very peaceful. Everything needed was provided and the hosts where extremely helpful but also left you to get on with your holiday. It was just the right size for two and our small dog. We had a lovely time in Durham, at Derwent reservoir and along the cost. Also recommend Raby castle as dogs allowed on the grounds buRead moret no inside the castle. Hide
