Lovely clean and comfortable
This cottage is one of the best we have stayed in, it's immaculately clean and everything you need. Very comfortable bed, which makes a huge difference to us. Lovely pub up the road serving beautiful food and walks from the doorstep.
Ideal property for exploring the beautiful Teesdale area.
Very clean and homely without being personalised.
Very well equipped, with everything you would need on your holiday.
Nice sunny back garden, totally dog safe.
Just couple of suggestions - some simple written instructions how to use TV/DVD for those who are technologically challenged like us!!
Just a couple of areas that would benefit from a bit of TLC e.g. grouting in bathroom/missing plug chain
Would definitely recommend to others.
Great for relaxation
Ideal cottage if you want to relax as we did. Clean, comfortable, just what we wanted.
A real home from home
Lovely cottage. Spacious, well equipped, clean and well thought out.
Full size kitchen - not a small corner of the living space as is common in many holiday cottages.
The photographs really do not do this property justice - it's much nicer than it appears!
We hope to return - what better recommendation?
Had a wonderful 4 day stay at this cottage in a great location! Plenty of walks on the doorstep! Cottage is beautiful photos really don't do it justice. Lovely modern country kitchen and warm
Very clean and comfortable cottage.
Our first time in a "village" setting and could not get over how quiet it was. The cottage was lovely, the web pictures don't do it justice. Very clean and comfortable with everything you could need.
The Crown along the road is dog friendly and serves excellent food.
A perfect base for exploring the area.
