Great stay in the Northeast
We loved Garth Cottage in Merrington Grange. Well appointed, very clean and cozy with easy access to surrounding areas. Sue was a very responsive host and makes sure you have everything you need. Be aware that you are in the countryside so internet service is somewhat spotty (no fault of the owner). We would happily book for another trip!
Clean, Cosy and Relaxing.
Perfect for a holiday in the area. Very relaxing with great views at a great price.
Thank you very much for your kind review. I am really pleased that you enjoyed your stay and the beautiful views! I hope to see you again in the future. Sue
Lovely cottage in a great location
The property was very clean and comfortable. It is situated in a very quiet location with uninterrupted views over farmland from the living area, but within easy reach of the nearby towns. It also offers easy access to the main routes, making exploring the area easy.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Garth Cottage, and hope to return in the future.

Cosy home from home with beautiful view
We loved our stay in Garth Cottage. It was very comfortable, warm (the local weather was sunny but bracing!) and well equipped and the view over gently rolling hills was incredibly peaceful. It was well placed for our family events in Durham and Middlesbrough and for lots of sightseeing. We hope to return in the future.

Absolutely Brillant place to stay
The cottage was beautiful inside, lovely and clean and had everything you could possibly need. For people with disabilities it is a well equipped and layer out cottage. The view from the lovely garden across all the fields is stunning and the farm animals are beautiful and lovely to sit and watch over a glass of wine. The cottage is in a great location for seeing the castles,museums,etc all within easy reach and i highly recommend a visit to the Beamish museum ,
Well to returning.
A home from home superb location outstanding views
