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.
Church Cottage was superb. Over the years we have stayed in numerous cottages and I really think this is one of the very best. It was everything we could have wished for. The position next to the church was lovely and bell ringing practise on the Wednesday evening when we were sitting inthe garden was very entertaining! Very central for various walking routes or to visit Barnard Castle or Durham etc. A very enjoyable holiday.
Having stayed at Mill Byre previously we were looking forward to our stay, and it didn’t disappoint.
Beautiful house, that is continually being upgraded...we loved the new sofas and the beds are so comfy.
Love, love, love the location, so peaceful with gorgeous views....my happy place....sitting outside with a book....nothing but the birds and rustling leaves of the trees...bliss!
Comfortable cottage that is really conveniently placed in a quiet area of Barnard Castle. Town is within easy walking distance (up hill for those less mobile) and plenty of walks nearby. Other local attractions are good and easy to get to. I would definitely recommend this cottage if you’re heading in that direction!
The Mill Granary is furnished and equipped to a high standard,the kitchen having been recently refurbished ,also a hot tub has been added outside the cottage. The quiet location is ideal for a peaceful holiday but convenient for many local attractions,pubs and shops.
