Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. One of the best cottages we’ve stayed in. Great location. Great views. Peacocks, hens, ducks and rabbits greet you as you open the curtains every morning. Magical! July 2012.
  2. Access difficult, views excellent. April 2012.
  3. We found the cottage very well equipped and extremely homely and comfortable. It is worth staying there for the views alone and for the peace and quiet. The owner was extremely helpful but also unobtrusive so we felt very relaxed. The only comment I would make is that the chimney could do with being swept so people can really enjoy the open fire! Feb 2012.
  4. A wonderful rural setting with a fabulous view of Weardale. Excellent centre for Teesdale, Derwent, South Tyne and Allendale. Superb walking reasonable shops along the valley. Farm setting through gates with the birds and animals make this an experience. The access raod and driveway are incredibly steep! Oct 2011.
  5. This holiday cottage is in a great setting if you love the countryside. Its not too far from any big supermarkets and you only have to travel for a maximum of 1 hour to get a good day out. The cottage itself is very roomy and cosy and the owners are only too willing to help you out if you need anything. Sept 2011.
  6. Cosy cottage, ideal for exploring Weardale with walks from the door. Pub and shop close by at the bottom of a steep hill- suggest you don’t forget the milk when you go shopping! July 2011.
  7. Great scenic location on a smallholding. Cheap fresh eggs as required. There is no risk of grounding as a previous contributor mentioned, unless you are in a super low slung sports car. Loved the "Loo with a view" I could have sat there all day. April 2011.
  8. A lovely ’nesting’ accommodation which was cosy, warm and exactly what we wanted - away from the madding crowd,with picture perfect views from the windows and a real coal fire at night to ward away the autumnal/wintry weather. Nov 2010.
  9. The location was superb and exceeded our expectations; the advert didn’t do the location justice. The property was far larger than we expected and, being our first time of booking a cottage like this, it also exceeded our expectations in terms of facilities provided e.g. suite of DVD films, washing machine, games console etc. Seeing five resident peacocks that were happy to be hand fed was also a real surprise! July 2010.
  10. Good views from cottage, larger than I thought it would be, well equipped kitchen. July 2010.
  11. Beautiful scenery. Very welcoming proprietors. July 2010.
  12. A beautiful cottage with everything that you need for a pleasant stay. Wonderful views across Weardale. The property is surrounded by a wonderful array of animals from Horses to Peacocks. Very clean with friendly helpful owners on site. June 2010.
  13. Well presented. June 2010.
  14. Very clean, well equipped and comfortable cottage, with the most amazing views. June 2010.
  15. Lovely property. Aug 2009.
  16. The master bedroom was huge with a comfortable bed and en suite shower room. The living room was large with comfy sofas. It was a shame it was too warm to light the fire! July 2009.
  17. Comfortable sofas, that we have found to be a rarity in other properties - too often old cast offs are used that are uncomfortable and in some instances unusable due to the springs being all too obvious! Fantastic views from front of property but access drive very poor being very steep and narrow. The occupant of the adjoining holiday property told us he grounded his car at the entrance on his first day. Luckily our car has higher ground clearance. Unfortunately this part of the driveway does not belong to the property owners but a warning should be given in case people have low slung vehicles eg sports car. July 2009.
  18. The location is one of the UK’s best kept secrets. Most people I know had never heard of Weardale, they have now. June 2009.
  19. The cottage is in a marvellous situation for views, walks and visits to places of interest. July 2009.
  20. This cottage was beautiful and just as described in the brochure. The views were unbelievable and the owners were helpful and welcoming. A very relaxing and away form it all break. Feb 2008.
