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.
What a fantastic use of space and quality of materials inside the Shepherd's Hut, and a wonderful place to relax, and what a view!!! The shower is probably one of the best we have used anywhere in the world. The only disappointment was that the quality of the outside furniture was not befitting of the quality of the materials and furniture used inside the hut.
Church cottage is ideally situated for exploring Co. Durham and the surrounding area. There are river walks direct from the cottage and others within the area. The cottage is well equipped for a comfortable stay and the garden is lovely and peaceful, perfect for relaxation. I would certainly recommend staying in this pretty cottage.
Excellent location in a quiet part of this friendly and pretty town and so convenient for all facilities, with parking outside the door. The cottage is beautifully decorated, warm and comfortable. There are lovely walks in the area, particularly along the Tees and many other interesting places to visit locally. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely return.
A comfortable property in a lovely location. Plenty of space and equipment for 8 people. Good quality furnishings and facilities. Singles rather than doubles would have suited us better but the property did provide 4 single beds which was excellent
Owner Kate was very informative and attentive and Information given prior to arrival and contact numbers was great. Hot tub lovely and well maintained. Glad we booked.
