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.
I booked this property as part of the booking of Mill Granary due to the number of guests attending the hen party, my daughter and her friend stayed while while the rest of us were in the main house, like my review of the main house, it was beautiful decorated and had everything the girls needs when they wanted to escape the us oldies.
I have no complaints for either properties we rented and would recommend both
What agreat holiday was greeted by the owner who had good local knowledge. Facilities are first class enjoyed New Years A quiet location with wildlife out of every window owl to hares and rabbits.
Kitchen had everything one would need and the log burner made for cosy nights in . Couldn't recommend The Mill Byre enough
We have been staying in Church Cottage for over ten years, sometimes twice a year, I think that says it all.
An excellent cottage, well equipped and situated in a beautiful part of the country.
Thank you Kate, hopefully see you again next year.
Lovely stay and very relaxing place to stay. The accommodation has everything a family would need for a stay and the house itself is very well maintained and is clean. Close to Raby castle, which is a great place to visit.
Park the car at the front and enter into a warm, comfortable and welcoming home from home. Christmas decorations, a tree with the lights on and some foodie gifts on the table. An excellent start, now get settled in for the week !
Cheeseborough House is ideally situated in Thorngate, a quiet part of the town. The shops, which cater for most of your needs, are just a short walk away and the house has easy access to beautiful riverside walks and to the ' yards ' and other quaint areas of the historic town. Everything is compact and so close at hand that we didn't use the car all week.
