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 had a wonderful week getting away from it all in the beautiful hut.
The hut itself is very well equipped and we had plenty of place to store things even for a week away!
The bed area is a little piece of heaven and the cabin is wonderfully cozy in bad weather.
The outdoor bath made the holiday for us. An evening bath at dusk with the geese flying over is a must even in the wind and rain!
The information provided in the pack in the hut was amazing and helped us to decide where to go for our day trips!
The hut os wonderfully rural so if you want to get away from it all thi...more

We have stayed in hundreds of self catering cottages in the UK, Europe, America and New Zealand and we a...more
This was a repeat booking for us. The house is really well equipped and extremely comfortable. The location is ideal for access to the town centre, Teesdale and the Bowes museum. It’s fantastic to see the town doing well, lots of good artisan shops, nice cafes and a lovely weekly market. Thoroughly recommended.
Stayed here for a long weekend in January. The weather was kind to us so made use of the hot tub after being shown how to use it by Kate. Lovely weekend in spacious but warm and cosy property. Everything to hand to self cater as we cooked all our meals. Very clean.
Deep sofas a bit uncomfortable for the short legged among us and we all prefer to have a side table for drinks rather than a large unreachable coffee table in the middle of the room. Hearing the heating click on was our early morning call , not the best if you want to lie in. Happy that we didn't t want to lie in as we visited Rab...more
