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.
Fantastic holiday home, great hosts.
The house is a true home from home, great place to relax with the family and an ideal base for visiting the surrounding villages and towns. We will definitely be returning.
The property location was brilliant . A lovely village and people very welcoming.
Cottage itself was as described.
Kate, the owner, came to check all was well on the day we arrived. Unexpected but a nice touch. Unfortunately she would not have a glass of wine with us.
Highly recommend. Would certainly consider a return visit.
A lovely visit to Barnard Castle. Kate's properties are superb and she always pays attention to detail.
The house was perfect and in a great location for the town. Lovely welcome goodies were a nice touch.
Would definitely recommend staying at any of her properties.
We had a fantastic week away. The cottage was every thing we wanted and more. Kate was on hand if we needed anything and we saw he every morning checking the hot tub.
It in a lovely village and the pub up the road was great and the locals made you feel welcome. We did go out most days for walks and to see Local attractions , but spent our afternoon and evenings making the best off the cottage and garden. We are all looking forward to going again. We would recommend this to anyone. Families and friend.
