                    Fantastic cottage in a lovely area

                    5 of 5
                    We stayed here to celebrate my partner's birthday in November. There was a large group of 10 adults and the cottage was perfect. Communication with the owner Martin was terrific beforehand, and the housekeeper kept in touch on the day to offer to meet us on arrival. The cottage is spacious, welcoming, warm, clean, and has everything you'll need for your stay. The four bedrooms are comfortable, and we even had four adults comfortably sharing the attic room which has two large double beds. The surrounding area is beautiful, we had plenty of hill walks to choose from, as well as the Weardale Way being right on the doorstep. It was nice and snowy when we were there, and the open fire in the living area was perfect for keeping us all toasty warm when getting back from a day in the hills. The kitchen area is modern and every need is well catered for. I'd like to come back again in the summer to venture further into the Pennine hills, and this would be a perfect base. Highly recommended ;)
