Our self catering Holiday Cottages are set in beautiful rolling unspoilt countryside in Lower Teesdale on the Durham/Yorkshire border. Conveniently situated within easy reach of Northern England's most beautiful scenery and historic sites, including the North Pennines, Yorkshire Dales, Durham Cathedral, Barnard Castle, Richmond, Hadrians Wall, Newcastle and the Lakes. Locally there is an abundance of walking and cycling routes through peaceful lanes and quiet limewashed hamlets with everything from a Michelin-starred restaurant, to welcoming local pubs, restaurants, farm shops and cafes.
Mill Granary and Mill Byre are two luxuriously appointed stone built 18th century converted barns, sleeping eight and seven guests, these are separated by open fields and a wild flower meadow teeming with wildlife. They are great for family gatherings and celebrations.
Our village property is 16th century Church Cottage which can sleep four guests. It occupies an idyllic setting on the quiet green in the historic village of Gainford.
Cheeseborough House is our jewel in Barnard Castle, a 19th century grade two-listed town house within walking distance of Bowes Museum, shops and restaurants, sleeping four guests.
Also a stunning Shepherds Hut with a chic interior lovingly created for you to enjoy. A perfect retreat for two.
Dogs are welcome to stay in the Mill Byre and Mill Granary.

Perfect for a week visiting our student in Durham and the many other sites (Bowes Museum and walks along the River Wear including High Force Waterfalls ) with a backdrop of autumn colours and lots of sunshine.

Everything about the cottage was perfect for our needs in these difficult times. We parked the car at the front door and it stayed there for the week. The town with its local independent shops was just a short walk away and excellent riverside paths were very close. The cottage was clean, warm and exceptionally comfortable.

Had a wonderful weeks stay here. Kate was very welcoming and the little treats left for us were most welcoming.
Setting is secluded yet many interesting places nearby. Hot tub was fun and just a perfect temperature.

Our Grandaughter who turned 6 during our holiday loved the play...more
