“Welcoming, well equipped in a great location”
Reviewed 14 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

From the welcoming afternoon tea to the minute we left we were very comfortable. The cottage was well equipped, warm and had everything we needed. It was a great base for exploring the north of England, with several beautiful local walks. John and Diana were wonderful hosts. We highly recommend this cottage and would stay again if in the area

“Fabulous, traditional country cottage”
Reviewed 1 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Wow, wow, wow! Goldsbourgh cottage is just one of those places which does exactly what it says on the tin, and more.
We were welcomed by both John & Diana, who are a lovely couplle and this is reflected in the attention to detail of their property, we even had home baked scones and carrot cake, which Dad ensured was left for him!
Overlooking the Hury reservoir. Goldsbough cottage is so tranquil with the foot of the Pennines way sitting on it's door, and a world of adventure not more than a 15min drive in any direction.
We as a family with young children (10 & 7) made the most of the location and walked to both High force water fall and Barnard castle.
The kids loved the adventure and exploring, must say they loved the smaller waterfall behind bowesley tourist board, which was really cool.
The cottage was so well equipped we cannot recall anywhere else being like this, the cottage was truly immaculate, and extremely cozy.
For us, we think we have discovered a little bit of paradise hidden away from anywhere, and anyone.
So ifyou want a beautiful cottage, with the most amazing scenery, in one of the most friendly places with an abundance of the most friendly folk you ever want to meet, Goldsbourgh cottage is that place.
Just remember, if you want HD TV, outside Hot tub, mini fridge, swimming pool and a kiddies club, this is not it.
But if you were looking for what we wanted, a family retreat, to explore and play games, Goldsbourgh will tick your box.
A huge thank you to John and Diana, I never got carrot cake better anywhere while out and about, and we hope to see you soon.
Cheers
Family T

“A loverly place to relak in away from the noise of the towns”
Reviewed 29 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The cottage is high in the Pennies away from the noise of towns. The cottage is very nice and clean to a very high standard. John & Dinna make you very welcome and should need anything the doing there best to supply it.

“Welcoming , warm ,cosy, well equipped cottage”
Reviewed 14 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We just had 3 nights at the cottage and were given a warm welcome on arrival with a lovely tea tray waiting in the cottage with cakes and scones.yum !
There was a generous supply of coal and logs for those chilly evenings.
The cottage itself is in a lovely setting with lots of places to visit all around . Bowes museum and Eggleton nursery and gardens are a must .We had just a taster but hope to return again soon.

“Goldsborough View is an idyllic cottage in which to enjoy the most relaxing hoiday within a beautiful of location.”
Reviewed 23 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

My wife & I have stayed in Goldsborough View during every year since 1999 either as a main holiday or second holiday. We love the well appointed cottage and the most warm welcome always received from the owners, John & Diana Young. They literally bend over backwards in ensuring our complete comfort and satisfaction. We are always sorry to leave but absolutely delighted to return to our very special home away from home. We firmly believe the foregoing says it all.
