Lovely property and location and a pub a few minutes walk away. Would definitely return.
Great kitchen and sun room.
A great place to stay!
Had a brilliant stay at Huckleberry cottage. We stayed with our 15 month old little girl and was ideal as room for her to play inside and out. We had everything we needed for our short stay to visit friends in the area. The Black Horse pub was a great place for a meal when we arrived and a quick drink before bedtime. Location and views excellent. Our little girl loved watching the horses as she ate her breakfast. Thank you
This was our fourth stay at the cottage and we were delighted to see that there were so many improvements such as the track leading to the property and up to the Black Horse being tarmaced. Several changes in the cottage itself were also much appreciated.
A countryside gem!
This was a beautiful house in a quiet, rural location. Well equipped and well situated to visit family in Durham. All amenities with a pub/restaurant just a short walk up a hill on the same property. Watched the horses in the neighbouring property as we had our coffee/tea in the morning. Spent the evenings in front of the gas fireplace with access to TV and Netflix after a day of exploring castles and sights!
A high recommend from these Canadians. :)
The cottage was in a lovely location surrounded on all sides by fields but at the same time near to everything. From the conservatory we could sit and watch horses, rabbits, pheasant and in the early evening bats. The bedrooms were smaller than expected but as there were only the two of us we managed but using the other bedroom for addition storage. We needed to buy tea towels and kitchen towel as these were not supplied unlike the property we rented the week before. There were no manuals for any of the kitchen appliances, the dish washer was easy enough to work out and we went on-line to find instructions on how to use the washer/dryer. Even with instructions we could not seem to get the dryer cycle to work so we sent the owner a text message but we never received a reply. The gas fire was cosy during the cooler evenings which is just as well because we really could not get on with the under floor heating the instructions made no sense..
The area is well served by numerous pubs and restaurants we found the Blue Bell Inn which is only 5 minutes away particularly good for food.
The cottage is amazing. We couldn't believe that this was the cottage we had booked. The location is ideal, the staff at the Black Horse were great, and the setting was amazing. Our only regret was that we didn't stay longer.
