For an active break there is much to keep you occupied or simply enjoy the tranquil grounds or a drive in the Yorkshire Dales.

Set in beautiful, tranquil grounds

Set in beautiful, tranquil grounds of 130 acres, including a section of the River Tees with fishing rights and an arboretum with over 240 species of trees, this superb detached former granary situated on a working farm, has been creatively converted to provide a spacious holiday home brimming with character. Near the North Pennines, an AONB, this charming house is perfectly located to tour the Yorkshire Dales, Northumberland with its majestic castles and magnificent beaches, and the Lake District is an hour’s drive away. Close by is the picturesque village of Neasham with a friendly pub and riverside walks, whilst Durham Tees Valley airport is only 4 miles. The owner, who lives on the estate, can organise many activities for visitors by arrangement including rough shooting, canoeing (canoes not provided), deer stalking (at cost), fishing (foc), cycles for guests use, horse riding and badger and bird watching (70 species seen). The appealing market towns of Richmond, Yarm and North Allerton make an interesting day out. Stabling and paddock available (for 1 horse, at cost). Shops, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

The property is situated only a short drive from Bishop Auckland which plays host to the magical Kynren Eleven Arches spectacular from July-September 2016. Kynren - an epic tale of England - promises to be a historical extravaganza with a case of over 1,000 people set over 7.5 acres of County Durham. There’ll be 14 action packed and movie-like performances of colossal and dazzling proportions. The shows will incorporate a full size lake with pyrotechnics, stunning lighting and water effects making it a true spectacle in every sense of the word!

    Cleanliness could definitely be improved and the main bathroom shower couldn't be used as it didn't have a shower head. However, I would still pay a return visit as the cottage is beautiful and the location was perfect

    Fabulous accommodation, we took full advantage of the log burner as the weather was so awful-really cosy and festive-just what we wanted. The only negative comment would be the shortage of showers for a large party, but the one that did work was very good.

    Was a great location and really friendly owner. The sofa's could have done with some cushions for comfort. Cleanliness could have been improved but it suited us great for the week.

    A well presented property, with a lot of character, and the added bonus of exploring the Ashes Estate, it had everything to cater for all ages. We used it for a family get together and after 3 days no one left disappointed. The Owner Des, is a very friendly guy, always happy to talk and assist , and he has the most wonderful Labrador dog "Mollie", we have never met a dog so well mannered, walking and playing with her was one of the highlights of the holiday, We will be definetely returning some time in the future

    Cottage was not very well cleaned, mouldy seals, dripping from shower to kitchen needs fixed. Owner new about this but did not seem worried about it. Not a very private area, the owner was onsite repairing and refurbing farm equipment during our stay. No mod cons within the house, forget phone network and wifi for the duration of your stay if you are going. Good place to put your head down, otherwise the place needs a good scrub and general clean up

    Great place to just relax. Good base if your looking to visit places near by or like we did, family weekend to catch up and just enjoy doing nothing. The dogs loved the freedom, family lived the fishing and the walks you can take.
