A lovely place to stop for the night, with a genuine hill farming family. Good conversation, pleasant company, super breakfast, wish I could have stayed longer and I will be back. My thanks to Michael for giving me a lift to the local transport hub to save me a walk in the rain, payment for grateful service and I would prefer to see that in their hands than a taxi company.
A very comfortable stay, welcomed into the home of a lovely hard working couple who were totally generous in making their home available to us as last minute arrivals. This is no standard B&B - much better than that it is a working farm in a magnificent setting, simply but comfortably furnished.
Stayed 3 times now. Once during the pennine way walk and twice on our travels. What a amazing place with great views. A working farm with great hard working owners that have always offered a very warm welcome. Cosy warm lounge with the log burner and comfortable settees. Will stay again soon. Full English breakfast that is superb. Thanks for the great bb.
Stayed here for 2 nights while walking the Pennine Way last October (only just got around to writing about it - sorry!) I only planned to stay for the one night initially, but because of a local cycle race the next day there was absolutely nowhere to stay in Middleton-in-Teesdale at all. When I explained my dilemma, Mike kindly offered to pick me up when I got to Middleton and then drop me back the next morning so I could continue my walk to Langdon Beck. This is a working farm with sheep, cows, silver pheasants, ducks and all the associated activity and muck that goes with it. This farm will not give you 5 star luxury en-suite rooms, but it will give you a good welcome, hearty breakfasts, clean & comfortable rooms and bathrooms and a TV lounge. It also has an absolutely amazing location and two of the most down to earth and charming hosts. Very good value too! I will definitely stay again.…
We were transferred to this B and B by the nearby Youth Hostel and were delighted with the result. Don't go here if you expect 5 star en-suite luxury but DO go here if you appreciate a warm welcome, clean and comfortable rooms, good food and the chance to see and talk about a working upland farm. Mike and Emma put themselves out for us, ensuring we were comfortable and making over their sitting room, with wood burning stove, to us for the evening. Yes there is a rough track and a muddy farm yard but that was part of the fun of the place.
