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.
A lovely welcome and a super house. We loved the location on the green and the ease with which we were able to visit so many super places within comfortable driving distance. We also enjoyed a few nice walks from the house - all in all, made it ideal for a super family holiday with our two children (aged 6 and 9). We all slept really well too owing to the really comfortable beds and enjoyed many of the games and books on hand. Thank you! We will be back!
A beautiful house in a lovely location and near to the river. We loved everything about it, the cosy living room with books and DVD’s , the well equipped kitchen with a real fire, two lovely en-suite bedrooms and best of all, a lovely courtyard garden. Even the weather was perfect. Will definitely return.
Another great time was had by all even though the weather was not the best for this visit. I’ve lost count of how many times we have stayed at Mill Byre but we love it and are already looking forward to our next visit in August. I would highly recommend a stay at Mill Byre, a fantastic cottage in a great location, very stylish and comfortable with luxury furnishings and the most stunning views. We look forward to seeing you again in August Kate when the whole family will be joining us to celebrate a 60th birthday, we couldn’t think of a nicer place to all be together.
A beautiful, big and very well equipped house. The weather was amazing the week we stayed which meant we got to appreciate the fantastic outdoor areas, the table tennis and hot tub were great additions. We also had family members staying at the Mill Byre which worked out great as they are less than 5 mins walk apart and that house is just as beautiful (although no hot tub or table tennis). Lots of lovely touches, flowers & treat on arrival and all basics provided. Area has lots to offfer would definitely recommend, although we don't usually return to a place twice I'm sure we will here!
