"Our new home from home"
This pretty cottage in the heart of Mickleton was everything that we had hoped for and more. The photographs do not do reflect just how nice this cottage is decorated and everything we needed was provided. We were concerned that being on the main road would mean traffic noise but there was hardly any traffic! In fact, sitting out in the garden of an evening with our wine, there was nearly complete silence - very unusual for a village location. The walking was excellent with the Mickleton railway walk being only 300 yards from the front door - an excellent and flat way to start walking to the other villages before picking up different walking routes. Also the Crown pub just down the road from the cottage has a lovely large beer garden which is dog friendly. We really enjoyed our short break here and we will definitely be back. This is the first time we have visited Teesdale and we have fallen in love with the area. The beauty of the Dales without being crowded.

"A real Home from Home"
We discovered the Cottage on this website and went for it. We needed a cottage with a secure garden for our dog so after a quick phone call about the garden the cottage was booked. A couple of days later the confirmation and instructions about how to get there were with us. When we arrived we had intended to park the car in the Village hall car park 100 or so yards down the road over night as there is no off street parking by the cottage but the road is that quiet there was no need so 2 steps from the car and you are at the front door. Once inside we found that the pictures on the website don't do it justice it's far better, it's light bright and airy and has the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in. Having watched Channel 4s "Four in a bed" we know what to look for when looking for dirt but we could not find any trace, the cottage was as clean as a new pin and grass in the back garden freshly cut. We made full use of the log fire most evenings, using the plentiful supply of wood in the back garden. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the kitchen type stuff you could want. We had no problems all week but knowing Alison and Tony were only on the end of the telephone was reassuring. Mickleton is ideally situated for the town of Barnard Castle, walking in Teesdale and generally getting away from it all. High And Low Force waterfalls are not far away, defiantly worth a visit. On the way to or from the falls is Middleton in Teesdale. The Chip shops Pies are well worth trying and the chips to die for. We would defiantly recommend this cottage and will certainly be booking again in the future.

"Deightful cottage amidst lovely scenery. "
I found the cottage listing to be very accurate regarding layout, facilities and contents etc. Location could have been a little better described however this did not pose a problem. In fact the exact location in the village of Mickleton was a bonus. The cottage is spacious, well laid out with all modern facilities yet still retains its charm and character. On arrival I found it to be very clean and well maintained. I was also assured by the owner Alison who has been a pleasure to deal with throughout the booking process that any problems I might find just to give her a ring. Most reassuring. Directions to the cottage which she gave could not have been better. All in all a lovely spacious cottage and an excellent base to explore the dales. Thanks Alison. I will return.
