a beautiful, warm and cosy cottage ..

"Stunning location where you can see the sun come up from the kitchen window and a million stars at night. This is a beautiful, warm and cosy cottage, and when there was a blizzard outside it felt even more cosy. The rooms are a fabulous size and our granddaughter loved her own bedroom and en suite upstairs. There was a plentiful supply of wood and coal for the open fire and lashings of hot water and fluffy towels in the bathrooms. There are plenty of places to visit nearby: Bowes museum, Barnard Castle, the animal rescue sanctuary and a host of lovely little gift shops. Just about perfect for a short winter break and the milk left in the fridge for us on arrival was very sweet and much appreciated. We will definitely come back here."
