    The cottage has everything you need for a self-catering holiday. It is in a lovely location with walks from the door step which are wonderful. The pub is a quick walk away with very good food. The owner was very obliging and contributed to an excellent holiday. The beds are very comfortable and the facilities in the cottage are also very good. The neighbours are really nice and very helpful. All in all a brilliant stay in a lovely place.

    Great stay at the cottage, with plenty of period features. Some very good walks right on the doorstep to Low Force and High Force waterfalls. The nearest town is Middleton in Teesdale which has a nice village centre with shops and places to eat. The next town is Barnard Castle which must be the only town to have a ruined medieval castle and a French Chateau (the Bowes Museum) in the same town. Overall a Nice cottage and location.

    traditional dales stone cottage in magnificent scenery. Almost the last cottage at the end of a 2 1/2 mile dead end lane. Low Force waterfall is 3 fields away by public footpath.
