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 booked the Shepard’s hut as our holiday to Greece was cancelled but we still wanted to get away. This was the perfect escape from reality and the pandemic! The hut was immaculate and had everything we needed and more. It was the perfect balance of peace and tranquility with a 10 minute walk to the pub if needed… The views were spectacular and sitting on the decking eating breakfast on a morning was certainly my favourite part. Thank you so much for creating such an amazing space away from the business of the world! Also the homemade treats on arrival were AMAZING! Jess & Ian xx

Church Cottage is a charming place to stay, well equipped, warm and comfortable, wonderful beds and lovely kitchen. The location is quiet and near a beautiful river walk. We were truly delighted with the way it has been so tastefully furnished and decorated to a high standard and Kate provides a lot of lovely extras that make the stay perfect. The garden is well kept and a beautiful place to sit and relax. There is ample parking at the front of the cottage and a great little shop walking distance away.Tesco delivered with no problems.
