Don't look any further. This is a great find. We absolutely loved the brand new facilities with sparkling en-suites in both bedrooms. Downstairs is stylish and comfortable and a superb central heating system makes it toasty in winter. Excellent smart TV and good WiFi kept the teenagers happy and host Chris is very dog-friendly, providing dog bowls and even a bed. Chris couldn't have been more helpful and there are lots of tips in the house guide about places to visit and eat. Durham is an easy 20 minutes by car, making this a great option if you are visiting a child at university as we were. There's also a pub (locals, not gastro) and a dog/child friendly cafe in the village. Behind the house is a playing field for easy dog-walking. What more do you need?!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at jackdaw's perch!
The view, especially first thing on a morning, is beautiful. The house is a perfect combination of modern convenience and period decor. The owner was also very accommodating and kept the property well supplied with fully equipped kitchen, smart TV and fast wifi. Would gladly stay again!
Jackdaws’s Perch is a lovely, cosy cottage, perfect for our needs, a real home from home. It is in a great location, near to Bishop Auckland, with beautiful views over the Wear Valley.
The hosts were prompt with communication, friendly and welcoming.
The house is fully equipped with everything we needed for a relaxing stay. The beds were comfortable, and there were en suites in both bedrooms. A real treat! Kitchen is a great space too, big enough for socialising whilst cooking.
We recommend spending an evening at the local pub, The Red Lion. Lovely staff, decent food menu and friendly atmosphere.
Would highly recommend this cottage and will be booking again in the not too distant future.
Lovely little cottage in quiet area. Everything seemed brand new! House was very cosy and was good that both bedrooms had an on suite. Outhouse was great for storing the bikes and the very muddy boots.....
Had a lovely day out in wolsingham and also visited Stanhope which was great and only 20 minutes away in the car.
Hopefully will get back their in summer and can go to Kynren and maybe beamish museum as well.
A beautiful cottage, tastefully decorated with a homely feel. Amazing views both front and back. Everything you could need was there with the most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept in. There’s even a good old fashioned outdoor Netty as well as two en suites. Will definitely be back.
