Guestbook comments from the owner
We stayed for a week in this beautiful cottage in Weardale. After making arrangements at the shortest possible notice because of a change in our plans, we nonetheless received a very warm welcome.



The house itself is cosy with lovely furniture and two rooms which can be used as living rooms downstairs, which meant we could sit in front of the log/coal fire on an evening and read in peace whilst the three children watched a film in the other comfy sitting room.



The surrounding area has so much to offer - High Force and Couldren Snout, both dramatic waterfalls, are within easy reach as are various cycle rides from "family" through to "strenuous". The Black Bull in Frosterley can be reached via back roads on a great family cycle tour (open Wednesday thru Sunday) and the pub is really special - so much so that we went for an evening meal the next day which was lovely (reservation was a good idea). Durham Cathedral and city were another special outing.



The views from the house are breathtaking especially when the sun shines, which it did! We can totally recommend this holiday rental.

We had a truly wonderful stay at this cosy and comfortable cottage. Great location, beautiful views and a very thoughtful owner. The cottage was spacious and well equipped and our young daughter had a great time meeting the animals and playing with the toys provided. There are plenty of amenities available in the surrounding villages with bigger towns and attractions within reasonable travelling distance. We found the cottage to be the ideal base for a family holiday - or a great venue for a romantic getaway! - and hope to return soon.
