Thwaite Cottages, Scargill, nr. Barnard Castle, Co Durham

Thwaite Cottages on the Scargill Estate are three secluded luxury self-catering holiday cottages: West Cottage, North Cottage and East Cottage, converted from the original Thwaite Farmhouse and Barns in 2006. These dog friendly, self-catering holiday cottages have stunning views over the beautiful countryside of Teesdale, near Barnard Castle. The Scargill Estate itself encompasses attractive moorland and woodland, featuring abundant wildlife of special interest to bird enthusiasts. There are numerous lovely walks on the moor and along the River Greta. The stunning rural location of Thwaite Cottages is only 15 minutes drive to the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, 15 minutes from the town of Barnard Castle, and 45 minutes from Durham City.

The cottages are all extremely well equipped and furnished to a very high standard, providing home comforts ideal for families and couples alike. They each sleep four guests, have gardens with patio furniture and lots of parking space.

North Cottage has a twin aspect tastefully furnished sitting room with views across the open countryside and a traditional open log fire (a basket of logs provided). The French windows open and lead onto the patio and large fenced garden. There is a bright, spacious and fully fitted dining/kitchen with a very well equipped kitchen.

The Master Bedroom is on the ground floor and has a King size bed, wardrobe, bedside cabinets and lamps, cheval mirror and chest of drawers. The family bathroom has a bath/shower, WC and heated towel rail.

The twin bedroom is on the first floor and has two single beds, wardrobe, chest of drawers and chair. The en suite bathroom has a bath/shower, WC and heated towel rail.

There is a large fenced garden in the back, and dogs are welcome in this cottage.
