Low Shipley Cottage Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
Low Shipley Cottage is a stone built barn conversion situated just four miles from Barnard Castle in County Durham. The cottage sleeps four people and has two double bedrooms with ensuites, a fitted kitchen with a dining area and a sitting room with a woodburner. Outside the cottage is off road parking for two cars and shared use of a lawned garden with outdoor furniture and a barbecue. Set in beautiful countryside, Low Shipley Cottage is a lovely holiday home in the north of the Yorkshire Dales.

Barnard Castle is a market town in Teesdale, situated within unspoilt countryside. The town is on the site of a Roman ford, which crosses the river, plus the medieval ruins of the castle and the cobble streets, yards, and back lanes are well worth seeing. From the town, there is excellent walking with The Pennine and Teesdale Ways, River Tees and the waterfalls at High Force all nearby.

From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?

Oil central heating with underfloor heating in en-suites and woodburning stove in sitting room. Electric oven, ceramic hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, 3 x TVs with Freeview, DVD, radio, WiFi, selection of books, games and DVDs. All fuel and power inc. in rent.

A fabulous converted barn away from it all. Low Shipley Cottage is tastefully decorated, with friendly owners who were not intrusive. There are also plenty of great walks from the doorstep.

We were very pleased to find everything so clean and welcoming. The beds were extremely comfortable and the area so quiet, perfect for a very relaxing week where it was so easy to combine visits to towns and cities with enjoying the lovely countryside.

We chose this particular cottage because there were two couples and this cottage had two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and it was so convenient. The cottage was situated in a very good area with so many places of interest to see. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Low Shipley.

Very quiet and very relaxing. Owner particularly pleasant and helpful. The cottage is spacious and well equipped. There are some great places to visit only a few miles away e.g. Raby castle, Eggleston Hall gardens and fabulous nursery also the town of Barnard Castle is a very enjoyable place to walk around. The Bowes Museum is outstanding.

We liked the property as a base - lovely location with stunning views and very comfortable. The bedrooms and bathrooms were decorated to a very high standard and the fire in the living room made the whole place feel very warm and cosy. We enjoyed walking into Barnard Castle, to the local pub and taking our dog out on various walks.

The property surpassed expectations. As many previous guests have said, the pictures do not convey the spaciousness and charm.
Mrs Mallon

It was a lovely cottage, in a very relaxing, scenic area. The rooms were comfortable and modern, with some lovely finishing touches. It was warm and cosy, and it felt like home from home. The owners were very friendly and helpful when we needed them. We would definitely recommend, and would go back again like a shot!

The entrance road is very bad in places and not good for loaded or low set car. The bottom of the car scraped a few times even with careful driving. The cattle grids are low to the road also. The farm is a bit untidy looking and not inviting at all. The cottage is lovely ! but the shower pressure is dire. Many of the lights have no working bulbs. The rain was running down the outside of the log burner chimney all night, we left a voice mail and a text to the owners as no one answered the door. We are still waiting for any kind of response to that. I laid newspapers down to soak up the water. Could not put the log burner on as only two logs. Also as mentioned by previous renters Wi-Fi non existent. The beds were comfy and rooms warm. The car had a soft tyre which some guys loading vans looked at and recommended a garage for repair as there was a screw in it. We went back the farm road very cautiously the garage was excellent and soon had us on our way. I feel it is a shame the cottage needed some simple care and a bit more cleaning, ( cutlery tray, cobwebs also bulbs, no matches to light fire, logs for the fire) it did let it down.

The cottage was excellent - the most difficult choice was which bedroom to use. It surpassed expectations. The journey down the steep track however was challenging! It was the end of the season and it had some very deep potholes, particularly tricky in the wet weather we were experiencing - I would not recommend for a very low vehicle.

fabulous cottage,ideal for two couples,spent new year at this cottage with friends.lovely bedrooms very large kitchen diner,only drawback was the unmade road down to the cottage.
July 2014
This is a beautiful cottage & the photos provided does not do it justice. It is much larger than it looks. The cottage is all on one floor with a toilet, laundry room, kitchen, lounge & two bedrooms each with their own on-suite. It is very cosy inside & very nicely decorated. Outside you have a nice lawn with stunning views over the country side. The sheep seem to like the garden too as they frequently jumped over the wall to enjoy the grass. The beds are comfy but new pillows are needed as they're a little bit too soft. Each bathroom has a very deep bath with shower over it. Many people have commented on the road & yes it is bad. If you have a low car you're better not to bother but it is worth it once you're down there. FYI Wifi is advertised but there is none. You also won't get any phone signal in the area. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

This was our first Christmas away from our family this year, just my husband, our son, myself and not forgetting our dog Brucie. We had to travel seperately due to work commitments, our son and myself arrived on the sunday evening, as we got out of the car we could see through the open curtains a very welcoming fire blazing in the woodburner and a beautifully decorated real tree. Once inside the cottage we couldn't believe the size of it compared to how it looked on the internet! What a top quality renovation with lovely furnishings and wonderful bathrooms. I was so excited on xmas eve knowing my husband and Brucie were arriving to share this delightful cottage. We all loved it. We had a very good meal at the Fox and Hounds in Cotherstone and then settled in for a perfect xmas. Derek and Ruth, the owners were most helpful and friendly. I'm sure we will visit this lovely cottage again.
