Burns Cottage description

In a beautiful setting with uninterrupted views over open countryside, Burns Cottage has been created from traditional farm buildings and offers well appointed, versatile accommodation. Primarily on a single level (but with some split-level galleried bedrooms), it has been traditionally furnished and decorated throughout to a high standard. Special features of the property include a swimming pool, sauna, and games room. There is also a full catering service available for special occasions.
Greta Bridge is a landmark hamlet, south of the A66 trans-Peninne road and only 4 miles south-east of the market town of Barnard Castle. Built on the site of a Roman settlement, and beside the pretty River Greta, is the neighbouring Morritt Arms Hotel (a 17th-century coaching inn, where Charles Dickens stayed whilst researching for his novel Nicholas Nickleby), which serves delicious food.
