Wanted to visit the north and the Dales, relax, visit some well known places like Beamish, NRM Shildon, High Force, etc. and found much more was here to see. This was the perfect base, child friendly, (3 kids in our group ages 6 to 10), set in a beautiful situation, well fitted out cottage, we loved it. We all agreed that it would be nice to come back. Great service, great spot, we give it an a+.
