Situated at the end of a no-through-road in the heart of beautiful, unspoiled Teesdale, the village of Holwick is a lovely, peaceful place ideal for those looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. The village is well served by local amenities and has a pub that serves food as well as a farm-butcher's shop with café situated on the owner's farm.

Nearby, and within walking distance, is the magnificent waterfall of High Force whilst just a short distance away the Pennine Way passes close by. Middleton, Mickleton and Romaldkirk are wonderful picturesque villages in the near vicinity, whilst the ancient market town of Barnard Castle is well worth a visit.

The peace and quiet which was exactly what the doctor ordered. Our week at the cottage was perfect, and we are hoping to return in the spring. The scenery is stunning and we went on lots of walks in all directions. I can honestly not think of a single negative thing to say.
Miss Dixon
November 2012
The Cottage is ideal for a romantic break, nice and bright in the day with fantastic views and warm and cosy in the evenings. Great location, close enough to the shops if needed, but far enough away for some peace and quiet.
Mrs Tupman
August 2013
The location is excellent. There are stunning walks within 5 minutes of the cottage. I enjoy the calm and friendly nature of the area. I feel very secure and would have no hesitation on going on walks alone. Everyone is friendly. The local shops provide everything you require. We know we will make a return visit as this holiday was just about perfect.

The cottage was a delight, it was in a beautiful area and the idea that it was an upside down property made good use of the scenery. It was very warm and very comfortable...full marks to the owner.

Mrs Colins
January 2012
This gorgeous quirky little cottage is in a beautiful location, like stepping into a corner of paradise. The scenery from every window was panoramic, the cottage was warm and inviting. The owner of the cottage was welcoming, and although the place is set as if in the middle of beyond, the nearby pub is great and the local people that we met were wonderfully warm and inviting. We will most certainly be going back, again and again I suspect!
Mr Blewitt
July 2012
Peace and tranquillity, sheep and rabbits still attempting to eat all the grass in neighbouring fields. The local people who made us so very welcome especially the new Landlord and Landlady at the Strathmore Arms 500yds down the hill.

Mrs Garbacz

The peace and quiet. The cottage is located in a beautiful part of the country and was ideal for our purposes. The cottage was just what we wanted and we felt at home straight away. We had wonderful walks on our doorstep and thoroughly enjoyed our stay, it was beautiful and relaxing. We will be going back.
Mr Griffiths
March 2009
The isolation of the cottage, with only farm vehicles passing, and the fact that some wonderful walks were right on the doorstep made this an ideal base for exploring the countryside. After a full day outdoors it was great to come back to a lovely warm cottage that provided views across the fields, enhanced by the fact that Meadows Edge was an 'upside-down' property.
Mr Downie
October 2008
Lovely quaint cottage in beautiful location with some excellent walking country. Ideal for two people wanting to get away from it all.

Meadows Edge was a lovely property tucked away in a great location for walking. The pub, just a 1 min walk down the road was great and extremely welcoming, with the sunday papers and warm fire - you couldn't ask for more. The lunch at the farm was out of this world and a absolute must. Thoroughly recommend to all my friends and family.
Mr Renshaw

The farm kitchen and the Scott family made the holiday special. We will be returning and hope to try one of the larger properties, and then we can bring more of our family. This has to be one of the best holidays we have had. Met some locals at the pub and enjoyed each others company.

Miss Marlow
December 2004
The best thing about the holiday was the setting. We absolutely loved the North Pennines. We enjoy walking so it was perfect for it. We loved walking along the River Tees, which was just a few minutes away from the cottage. The cottage was small but cosy and we loved going back there after a day out walking.
Miss Hogger

Mr Cohen
December 2004
Peace and quiet, lots of birds and rabbits. Easily accessible to main roads. Cottage very warm and comfortable.
January 2016
The property is a converted farm building of some sort and is reasonably furnished in a 'holiday home' style. Nothing exceptional either way, not outstandingly bad, not outstandingly good, its 'nice' ,perhaps a little bit beginning to fray around the edges, Located in a small hamlet, and here perhaps my own prejudices will reflect on the review, its not barren/ desolate/ isolated but when youre about 25 mins from the bright lights big city of Barnard Castle (sense the sarcasm in the last phrase) you get the picture that you are 'getting away' from it somewhat. Whilst I was after a fashion able to get internet access, mobile coverage was non-existent. Its nice, the owner is lovely, but I sense the last of that type of holiday i'd do alone.
March 2014
Great views from living area upstairs. Good setup internally. Really would like to use in summer when can make best use of garden. Only one little thing for us was the boiler was right by your head in bed, so sleeping for me was an issue. For anyone who sleeps lightly this might be an issue. Otherwise fab!!
October 2014
Meadows Edge is located in an ideal location for walking or just relaxing. With no mobile Signal and very limited wifi you can escape from the every day hustle and bustle. This upside down cottage allows you to relax and look out onto amazing views of Holwick Scar and surrounding countryside. The cottage is cosy even during some very inclement weather. The boiler however is located directly behind the bedroom so may disturb light sleepers. Surprised to find that no towels are provided or a basic welcome pack. (Perhaps we have been spoiled by other letting agents?) Local pub is just minutes away and serves some pretty decent meals.
January 2013
My partner and i work in the city and wanted to get away from it all for a week, and thats exactly what we got from Meadows Edge. We were greeted by the owners daughter who lives down the lane, she was very friendly and offered her assistance if we needed it at anytime while we were there. The Cottage is off the beaten track, well kept and has everything you would need for a relaxing break, you will find every utensil you can think of in the kitchen! It has excellent views from all upstairs windows, cosy bedroom downstairs with a modern bathroom en suite. The cottage is less than 5 minutes away (walking) from the friendly local pub which does great meals and 10 minutes(driving) to shops. Lots to do in the area, farmers market in Barnard Castle, walks, High Force Waterfall is a must and is only 20 minutes away in the car. Overall we had a great stay even when the weather was bad we cuddled up on the sofa with the heating on and watched the world go by from the comfort of the warm cosy cottage. We will definately be going back for more in 2013.
June 2012
Holwick is 3 miles drive from Middleton. Very friendly owner. Cottage is a bit small for a long stay - especially as we were rained in for two days but perfect for short breaks . Didnt get chance to walk much but its perfectly placed for High Force. Small living area . Could do with a bigger sofa but again you wouldnt notice this if using it as a base only .TV very good and kitchen excellent - makes up for living area .Small garden but fabby views. Where else would you get a swallows nest in your porch? Pub down the road Strathmore Arms is very small but very friendly. Middleton is a lovely village too.
January 2013
The cottage was beautiful . Perfect and cozy for two , we arrived in the night so were astounded by the beautiful views when we woke the next day . The local pub was very friendly and inviting and the food was beautiful perfectly priced and very generous portions were a added bonus ! The walks were a little hard to figure out but once we got on the right track we were could really taken in the beautiful surroundings . The cottage was well equipt but make sure to bring towels ! The cottage is in a secluded location perfect for getting away from it all and relaxing would recommend this to anyone and will definitely be back .
December 2011
It is a lovely, cosy cottage with all the amenities, a home from home. The location is ideal for High Force waterfall and walking in the area.
May 2012
Ideal for 2 adults and a dog... Views are sensational. Walks in all 4 directions. Very cosy and well equipped. Fantastic pub down road
June 2010
My wife and I stayed at the cottage for the last week in March, leaving on Good Friday. We had an excellent time for the whole week, with no negative moments. The cottage was very cozy with brilliant views across and down the dale and the village pub was very friendly, the local Sunday walkers even shared their 'cheese board' with us. Helen, the landlady of the pub, proved be a wonderful host. On our last day there, we went for a walk along the dale, arriving at the cottage in lovely spring sunshine, within a minute, we had a white-out! A superb cottage and location - we'll be back!
December 2011
We got a warm, personal welcome from the owner. The weather was awful but that did not matter. We walked to High Force one day and spent a day mooching around the towns. It was a lovely weekend and so nice to be able to bring our dog.
Mr Drybrough
June 2016
This is a good location for walking, peace and quiet, friendly locals and a great pub 3 mins walk from the property.
June 2010
Stayed in this cottage over the Easter Period and had such a great time. We had snow outside on the evening we arrived but the cottage was very warm and cosy and the owner who lives nearby came and took us around and welcomed us. The fresh dafodils etc. which were supplied was a very nice touch. The Cottage is gorgous and very comfortable with outstanding views out over Holwick and Teesdale. It is in a very quiet area with a pub within walking distance and shops can be found in nearby Middleton. I would certainly recommend this property and would love to return soon.
March 2010
The owners are very friendly and welcoming; that gets you off to a great start. We loved the views from every window in the living space - many rabbits to watch. It was heavily snowing all the time we were there, which meant we were unable to do much walking, but it was very cosy to be sitting watching the snow with the views from the comfort of the living room. The only small downside is that it was an exceptionally cold week (we were snowed in) and with the bedroom being downstairs, it was a little chilly - but not enough to effect our time there. We will definately be back.
December 2009
After a stressfull time this cottage break helped revive my good spirits. The magnificent views from the cottage and fantastic local walks helped us to totally relax. The cottage was vey comfortable and the owners helpful and made us feel welcome. I would loved to have booked this year again but circumstances won't allow us to book ahead. I'm praying for an unlikely cancellation for this very popular cottage nearer the holiday season.
December 2009
Service was second to none. Home very secluded,Lovely for a nice quiet break. Area had nice walks,(not to challenging) House very clean,Good facilities. Handy pub(Good Meals)Friendly. Lounge could do with another armchair.
December 2009
Owners very helpful and welcoming on arival. The cottage is very cosy and warm, its location is within easy walking distance of High & Low Force on the Tees. Plenty of other local outdoor walks from the door. Middleton is nearby and a delightful village with everything you need for a holiday. Within striking distance of Beamish Museum and Durham over the moors. Cothersdale, the local cheese is superb. Could not fault anything!
