What a wonderful cottage - very cozy and comfy. Excellent walks for the dog and river just round the corner. Village is lovely and good amenaties. Would love to return to the village for longer and dipper cottage. Thank you Mary!
This cottage is fantastic, a real homely cottage with great CLEAN facilities, the bed was comfortable, the furnishings are lovely, with comfortable leather furniture in the lounge. The owner is easily contactable should assistance be required, and we were given clear instructions on how to access the property, via email. We only stayed for two nights, a week here would be fantastic.
Fantastic cottage. Excellent facilities and so beautifully decorated/furnished. Would loved to have stayed for longer than the weekend - maybe next time! Everything you need nearby if you run out of supplies - dog-friendly pub, spar, fish & chip shop, Chinese takeaway etc. There's also a lovely area nearby to walk your dog and a small green just over the road for a late night poo stop! Only thing that could make it better is if the yard was fully fenced so the dog could have the run of it but I realise it's open so a car can be pulled into it. Plenty space for parking in back street though.
We stayed here for 3 nights
The location is great, just around the corner from 2 pubs, 2 shops, a cafe and a bank. The cottage is lovely, the owners bought it recently so is quite newly furnished. A nice sized kitchen / dining room and a cosy lounge downstairs, and two decent double bedrooms upstairs.
There was a lot supplied, Christmas decor, plenty of cups, plates, cutlery, and a few token items such as coffee and sugar, salt pepper and a few spices.
One slight point, is that being an old cottage there is a downstairs bathroom off the rear hall/kitchen, and upstairs so could have easily been extended over that to give a nice en-suite bathroom to the main double bedroom. I'd say that's especially needed as the cottage sleeps 4 people and there is only ever one toilet to use, not ideal with 2 kids and 2 adults, but not a deal breaker at all.
Overall it was a great stay, a comfy cottage, nicely done out, good communication with the owners and would like to stay here again next time we visit the area
Wonderful home from home, plenty of little extra's to make you feel comfortable. Great location for visiting Durham and the north Pennines. Plenty of local amenities right on your doorstep.
