Half term holidays just around the corner and the weather seems to be brightening up, with the storms behind us and the sun peeking through!  Lots of fun half-term activities for your kids near all our cottages - museums, art galleries and cafés if you prefer the indoors ;) and forests, playgrounds and open spaces to explore for the nature lover.  Our lovely self-catering cottage North Cottage, Scargill, near Barnard Castle is just a short drive from all these fabulous attractions:

Stay & Play and nature trails at the Bowes Museum

Hamsterley Forest for walking, cycling, mountain biking, horse riding and Gruffalo sculptures!

Nature trails and star gazing at High Force Waterfall

Beamish Living Museum

Explore Barnard Castle and nearby

or you could just stock up on lovely food and wine, light the fire and relax! :)
