    A great week spent with the kids in this lovely cosy little cottage. Everything you need for a base and some cosy nights in front of the coal fire. An ideal location for country walks to nearby beauty spots such as 'High Force' and 'Low Force' waterfalls on the Pennine Way. A short stroll to the local pub (a proper little country pub) where the hosts and locals were so friendly with good grub and very good ciders. The kids have already asked if we can return next year and I daresay it is very likely.

    A beautiful cottage in a lovely setting. The area was exactly what we wanted and the locals were great. A good base for Beamish, York and Durham. My reason for not going back? The separate payments for heating and electricity. That in itself wasn't unexpected but the way it was done at the cottage wasn't great. You have to check the metre on arrival and before leaving and then complete and equation before leaving cash or a cheque in a plastic wallet. Not acceptable really and put me off as soon as we arrived. Coal has to be paid for also. Itdoes get cold at night even in July. I honestly feel it would be better to include this with the overall price. There is even a file with a mini essay on why the owner insists on separate payment. Not welcoming. You've tomakr sure the night stirage heaters are left on during the last night so you don't embarrass the owner? You are also asked to check for teaspoons which you may (accidentaly) take. I found that file quite offensive and not a good part of the holiday. Just be aware - lovely cottage, lovely area but hidden costs.

    We've stayed before and it never disappoints. Lots of useful information in the cottage which is in walking distance to Low Force and beautiful countryside.
