We stayed in Footway Cottage for a week in Febuary. We had a wonderful stay, the welcome pack was very good, and even included a crayoning book for our little girl! The rooms are very good, very clean and nice and warm as it was very cold when we stayed. The location is superb, 5 minute drive into Stanhope. The view to the front is great with rolling fields and a stream winding down the hill. To the back is decking and views over the hills, would be great in the summer. The owner Norma was fantastic, even though we never met her ,the communication was great and even sent our child's book back by post which was left in error with a lovely letter telling my little girl that postman pat has sent it back to her! Overall I would give it 9/10, it would have got 10/10 if there was broadband as it would have been handy picking up emails etc, but that is being picky! We shall certainly being going back this year to this hidden little gem as we have family up there, fantastic!

We was moved to Footway cottage after moving from the holiday cottage the we originally booked ( which was unfit for us to stay in)
We was so pleased we had to move as this cottage was perfect, beautifully clean and in a fantastic location.
On arrival we was welcomed by Norma, the owner. She showed us around and told us what we would need to know.
Their was a lovely welcome pack, milk, coffee, tea, sugar, breakfast cereal and she had even brought our son some chocolate, so very thoughtful.
We had an amazing few days. We visited, Beamish, Carlisle Castle, Barnard Castle and other local places of interest. The only downside was we didn't have long enough there. We will definitely go back next year. Thank you David & Norma.
