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.
