    Only thing missing from this lovely newly re-furbished cottage was an au-pair. There is not much enclosed outside room for a dog at the rear of the property. Would certainly return to this cottage & this part of County Durham.

    This cottage is a delight. Lacks nothing you will need to make your holiday comfortable. The owners are unobtrusively helpful. The location is central for most attractions in durham. If walking is your thing then you'll be spoil for choice.

    This is a comfortable,well equipped spacious house nicely set, with good outlook, outdoor sitting area catches the sun. The cottage is near lots of places of interest, large shops and supermarkets only ten minutes away. Was pleasantly surprised with the bedrooms as the photographs didn't show them to be as bright as they actually were and roomier than imagined, both with lovely on suite bathrooms. The owner was very pleasant and helpful. Had a very enjoyable, relaxing stay.

    Had the most wonderful Easter weekend staying at the Granery! We have two Australian Shepherds that love being out and about so the location was amazing for exploring the local area. Within a 20 minute drive we were able to reach some beautiful walks and the owners kindly allowed us to use one of their fields that was spare to give the dogs a run about in when we first arrived. The Graneey itself was just like a home away from home. It was spacious and comfortable with everything that we could need for our stay. After a day out walking it was perfect setting down to relax for dinner and have the log burner going in the background, we even managed to sit outside despite not being the warmest! Would definitely recommend and will be planning a return trip.

    We only stayed 2 nights due to our own time restrictions. The cottage was lovely and the wood burner really really warm! Nice to be able to control the underfloor heating in each room. The shower flow wasn't very strong (I think ours at home is quite powerful so everything else pales in comparison...) and the TV speaker had blown so the sound was pretty rubbish. We didn't go to watch television though so it didn't matter. Hamsterley forrest nearby was really great for the kids, less so for the dogs because of all the mountain bikers, but guess that's what its designed for really. Nice space to chill out in.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments. Sorry you had problems with the TV, which I wish I had known about at the time. Hope to see you again.
