Ornella View is a great choice for families or groups of friends to explore the hills and vales of this stunning area.

Occupying an elevated position overlooking the hills and valleys of Teesdale, Ornella View is a detached cottage, nestled in a perfect location for guests wanting to really explore the countryside of County Durham. Well-loved as a family home, Ornella View offers a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere with plenty of space for larger groups of guests. On the ground floor are two spacious living areas, each with ample space for the whole family. In the main living room, guests will find a cosy wood burner and comfortable sofas as well as an open plan dining area and in the sitting room there is a large TV and plenty of space to relax. Families will also enjoy the added bonus of a games room in the garage which houses a pool table, dartboard and sofa. The kitchen is well equipped and perfect for those family celebrations too. On the first floor guests will find a large family bedroom which offers a double bed and two full size single beds which is ideal for parents with small children. There is also a double bedroom, twin bedroom and further double bedroom with an en-suite shower room. The family bathroom has a bath and a separate shower cubicle. Guests will find ample garden space around the property with a lawned area to the rear and ample garden furniture for those sunny days.
Perfect for walkers of all abilities, the area offers an abundance of established public footpaths and walk ways that pass through the village and out beyond through Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty including the North Pennines and many of the pretty villages in Teesdale. The Mid Teesdale circular walk and the Pennine Way are both close by and offer guests the most perfect opportunity to really enjoy the natural delights of the area, culminating in a trip to the spectacular Low Force Waterfall which is the first of a series of waterfalls to explore. Also perfect for cyclists, the area is well known for its many cycle routes and off road opportunities. Only 2 miles away is the the popular village of Middleton–in–Teesdale where guests will find a thriving area with many amenities including excellent local pubs and restaurants, as well as a local shop and market place. A little further afield but still along the path of the Teesdale Circular Walk, guests will be able to stop off at Eggleston Hall for a spot of lunch in the very popular tea rooms. Guests can wander through the beautiful gardens which cover 4½ acres and includes a stream and stunning views of the fells. Perfect for families, there are many attractions for guests of all ages within a thirty minute radius. Barnard Castle and The Bowes Museum are only 8 miles away and certainly worth a visit, Stanhope for The Dales Visitor Centre and Killhope for the Lead Mining Museum are both within a 30-minute drive away. Bishop Auckland, which is home to the annual Kynren Spectacular, can also be reached within a 30-minute drive and is a must see for families staying at Ornella View between July – September. The cathedral city of Durham and the majestic Lake District are both reachable in around a 45-minute drive too. Shop 2 miles, pub 180 yards, gastro pub 360 yards.

    Great party house does lack the comforts such as hot showers and comfy beds but great for a party style get away ! location fab great for walks and local pub. Was disappointed that the hot tub was emptied before our last night to get ready for the guests arriving the next day, never had this before ! overall value for money and would reccomend for party break .

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thanks for your review. We find it a little disappointing after you told us you had a fantastic week - and didn’t bring anything to our attention even though we live next door. Regarding the hot water - someone from your party had altered the controller settings which may explain this. Regarding the comfort of the beds this is a totally subjective. The previous guests had wanted to take some of the mattresses away with them - which you would have seen in the guest book comments. Finally the hot tub - which is the biggest problem for any holiday cottage owner. If guests ignore the instructions, as you did, given to them on how to maintain the water quality, then our priority has to be that the hot tub is ready for the next guests. Also guests undertake to leave the house in the condition they find it. This was certainly not the case - amongst other things it took the cleaner 30 minutes to remove the large amount of wax that a member of your party had spilt on the oak flooring. Finally we are not really wanting the cottage described as a party house - it was until a year ago a family home.

    As a group of 8 women we stayed for the weekend. The hosts were very helpful in organising keys. The cottage itself is amazing, the kitchen is fully equipped, fire wood was provided for the burner and we were more than comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our lazy weekend relaxing. Would definitely recommend.

    Thank you for our wonderful stay we had a great few days. The house is lovely with great facilities and enough space for a large group. The location is great and the pub served really nice food. We picked the house for the hot tub and this didn’t disappoint. The house was very clean with lovely furnishings, the only thing I would change is the comfort of the old mattresses. We also picked the house because dogs were welcome and this was important to us. Thank you for letting them join us, the only thing that would help is if the garden was secure so we didn’t have to worry about them. Thank you again we loved our stay

    Response on behalf of the owner; We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and thanks for the positive comments. Regarding the mattresses - they were all bought new in March this year and are of hotel standard. And also regarding the security of the garden for dogs. The garden area is almost 3/4 of an acre and would be almost impossible to make totally secure. The large patio area is now secure - two removable, dog proof timber gates are now available to keep our canine friends safe on the patio.

    We had a lovely time the cottage was beautiful. The only thing which was a bit of a problem was we couldn't let the dogs on the garden as no gate and they would have got out very easy , so we had to bloke a few things off. But over all very nice !!!!

    We had a fantastic time here with friends, the hosts left a little welcome pack which was lovely and we enjoyed the local waterfall walks. The only points to be aware of is that although the property is suitable for dogs and children in most ways it isn’t secure in that there is no main gate and access to a main road with a blind corner. Also, the games room is accessed only by the garage at the front so if you’re in there it’s very isolated from garden or rest of house which we found meant we didn’t really use it. All rooms spacious - we only used one lounge briefly downstairs and the kitchen really as spent most time outside, although there were 10 of us there were only 4 outdoor seats and 4 footstools which surprised us so just worth being aware of that too. Overall we had a great weekend and would recommend for value for money
