L. B, United Kingdom - July 2022


"We stayed here for our honeymoon last year so it was special to return for our first anniversary. We love the seclusion and the large private grounds that the dogs could run around in. I think they remembered it from last year too!! It is lovely to wake up to the sound of the stream and the sight of the lochan. We enjoyed a very lazy holiday, walking the dogs in the large grounds of the estate. Everyone we met was very friendly. The house is very clean and wants for nothing. The men who came to take away the bin for emptying asked if we'd had any problems with wasps. We hadn't then, but a couple of days later we did. I phoned the housekeeper then we went for a walk. The nest had been dealt with by the time we returned. Brilliant. We came across the men again when they were cutting the grass, and again when we were walking. They were very friendly and obviously hard working."

NORTH COTTAGE guest reviews 2022

"Probably the best cottage we have stayed in. As a result, an excellent holiday. Not in the heart of the Dales, nevertheless well situated for visiting them while being close enough to Barnard Castle for shopping etc. Need I say more?"

C. B, United Kingdom - July 2022


"We love this cottage. The furniture and furnishings are all good quality and the kitchen is very well equipped. The rooms are spacious. The garden is a good size for the dogs. We love the area because it is quiet. This year we had the bonus of many lambs in the surrounding fields. It was a lovely, relaxing break. We hope to book two separate weeks next year."

A. C, United Kingdom - April 2022


"very comfortable and spacious cottage"

SMITHY guest reviews 2022

"The location is unbeatable for peace & quiet and outlook, but it is isolated. The road there is narrow and uphill. The Smithy has been furnished to a high standard. Instructions covering directions, access and local amenities were very comprehensive and easy to follow."

"Beautiful cottage in stunning surroundings. Well equipped and very clean. We loved our family holiday here with fantastic activities for our 9 year old to enjoy close by. Thank you!"

MANOR HOUSE FARM COTTAGE guest reviews 2022

"We've stayed at this cottage twice, and both times, we've been hugely impressed by your customer service (many thanks for sorting out the bright light in the downstairs bedroom after our first visit, and for providing us with the missing towels so quickly this time). The location of this cottage is excellent, and it's very comfortable."

M. D, United Kingdom - July 2022


"Ideal location for relaxing and chilling out."
