The Cote Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
The Cote is a welcoming semi-detached cottage on a livestock farm in a rural setting near Staindrop. It has one double room, one twin and a room with adult bunks. There is a bathroom, a shower room and a ground floor cloakroom. The kitchen has a dining area, and the sitting room is cosy and comfy. Outside is off road parking for three cars, and walks from the doorstep. The Cote makes a lovely year-round base for walkers or those hoping to enjoy the market towns, historic houses and beautiful scenery of this part of the country.

Closely associated with the fortunes of nearby Raby Castle and its owners is the pretty Teesdale village of Staindrop in the Yorkshire Dales. The castle, a monument that is open to the public, is one of the grandest in England. Extended and modified over the centuries, the heart of the castle is medieval with a walled garden and 200-acre deer park. Staindrop itself is home to many interesting shops, pubs and cafes, all set round its long village green. The popular market town of Barnard Castle is only five miles away, and is the setting for the Bowes Museum, in addition to its wide range of shops and tea-rooms. The area is a wonderful place for walkers and cyclists with numerous routes throughout the stunning scenery.

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?

The Cote was clean and well maintained. |The owner was helpful and friendly. It was a really good base for the surrounding area and good value for money. For the first weekend I had another couple staying with us, it was handy having an extra bathroom.

Beautiful cottage in a beautiful part of the country with amazing views. Went for a relaxing week and definitely enjoyed that. Lovely to be on the farm when all the new lambs were there - so cute. Enjoyed lots of lovely walks across the bountiful farmland with the dog.

Very good place to stay. The owners were very helpful with arrangements and everything was exactly as we expected. Nice countryside setting, with some strolls straight from the door. Staindrop itself is a lovely village, with some nice shops/eateries.

We booked through Sykes Cottages, whose properties we've used very successfully before. The Cote did not disappoint, the property was clean, cosy and well appointed: two great bathrooms with plenty of hot water plus a cloakroom/utility room, a spacious sitting room with three sofas - one each for me and my two girlfriends to crash out on at the end of a strenuous day out! The beds were very comfy - I slept in the room with adult sized bunks and got a really great night's rest every night. Good wifi service which we used extensively. Well equipped kitchen with lovely views. We enjoyed meeting the owners and chatting to them - thanks to them for showing us their own lovely garden :-) I would recommend it to anyone wanting a comfortable and modern home-from-home in the area - there's plenty to see and do there.

The Cote is an attractive stone building set on a farm with great views out of all windows. The facilities are of high standard with the water from all taps being extremely hot, the underfloor heating also provides you with nice warm feet after a day out in the country, especially during the winter! The kitchen is well proportioned with ample cutlery and crockery. The wooden beams give it a nice "oldy" feel whilst still appearing quite modern. Beds are very comfortable and warm.

what great people John and John and Sarah, they made our stay just like being part of the family. their hard work creating a comfortable get away on a working farm deserves all the praise heaped on them. i love the area and environment and am planning to take my grankids up next time just sitting outside watching the bat flit round your head in the evening was worth the stay. lost for words enjoy

Last minute booking at The Cote due to the owner of our initial cottage booked through Sykes Holiday Cottages being unavailable for the key collection (what a luck that was!) Booked & arrived at The Cote 2 hrs later. Wow!! The Cote is absolutely stunning..very well equipped. Beautiful location and the owners were very welcoming. Loved our stay so much we are going again in a couple of weeks

Lovely cottage with everything you need for a relaxing holiday in this beautiful part of the country. The grandchildren had a great time playing in the secure field next to the accommodation and seeing the Eagle Owl was a bonus. Great walks from the door and a pretty village not far away. The owners were very friendly and helpful and the little touches like fresh flowers made us feel at home. Highly recommended.
