Bilberry Nook Cottage is a beautifully decorated and spacious cottage, with a lovely big patio door overlooking the garden and river at bottom of the garden. Bilberry Nook Cottage gives easy walking access to the Weardale way, miles of signposted walking beside the river Wear. The owner, Joanne, runs a beauty therapy business offering 10% discount to cottage guests. I had a wonderful massage from her. Having a pub nearby with their own microbrewery and delicious food was very handy!

The cottage was beautiful, all new and spotless. The owners were lovely and accommodating. The surroundings are a pleasure, especially the river at the bottom of the garden. Had a lovely relaxing holiday. Would recommend to anyone, especially if you want a holiday with your dogs.

A great cottage in a lovely village. The property was very well equipped and furnished - obviously a lot of thought had gone into it.

The cottage was lovely and clean and the back garden was excellent, straight down onto the river, great for dogs. The owners are great hosts, kept themselves to themselves but were there to advise on walks etc.

One of the best presented cottages we have ever stayed in, the owners had gone above and beyond to make our Xmas in their cottage special. Just perfect sums it up. Very highly recommended, we will be booking again soon.

The friendliness of the owners was brilliant, they made our comfort and needs their top priority. The place is set between some great walks, perfect for us with the dogs. The kids really enjoyed the things to do around the area too. We would definitely come back.

The cottage owners were extremely welcoming and helpful, giving us local walks to do and places to go. The property was very tastefully done which was especially nice to find when you take dogs, you often get shabby not chic! The location was stunning; fabulous scenery, great garden backing on to the river with lovely patio and seating areas, even lit by fairy lights when it got dark! Just everything a cottage should be; clean, well equipped, nicely decorated furnished and in a great location.

This cottage is set in a remote but beautiful location and has plenty of space. It is dog friendly and is adjacent to the Wear. So you can sit outside and listen to the gurgling of the water. The cottage is well maintained and has everything you might need. Westgate is well situated for Teesdale, the Lakes and North Yorkshire. The owners were were very supportive at all stages of the rental process. We will be back!!
