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.
We love Mill Byre, known to our grandson as 'Grandad's holiday house', but this was our first Christmas here. The house was decorated beautifully and although there is a lovely woodburner, the house was so cosy, we didn't light it (we did have Michael Buble's Christmas Yule log on the telly though). The big stove and well-equipped kitchen meant I could cook full-on turkey, all the veg, and a nut roast for all our family (9 visiting on Christmas day, plus the new baby). There was lots of space to play games, spread out, and we even did a Christmas yoga class courtesy of my Peloton app. Shop...more
We had a lovely stay, we needed an accessible bedroom and easy access for Dad, this was perfect. The facilities were great we had some nights in cooking and a nice evening at the local pub. Everyone was friendly and welcoming, we would definitely stay again. Thank you
A beautiful, well-appointed cottage close to town centre and nearby walks.
We have stayed many times at Kate and Richard's cottages in the surrounding area.
The fact that we keep returning speaks for itself.
