Westfield Cottage Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
Westfield Cottage is a stone built, Grade II listed cottage located near to the hamlet of Middleton in the Teesdale area, north of the Yorkshire Dales. Boasting three bedrooms with one double and two twin bedrooms as wellas a family bathroom, this cottage can sleep six people. The cottage also has a kitchen with dining area and a sitting room. Outside this cottage, there is ample off road parking and a shared sitting area with garden furniture. Westfield Cottage is an ideal holiday cottage for families wanting to explore the surrounding countryside.

Situated in the heart of beautiful Teesdale is the small hamlet of Mickleton. Close to the villages of Romaldkirk and Middleton. This lovely little hamlet is within a few miles of the market town of Barnard Castle, making it an excellent base from which to explore the region. The village itself is a quaint cluster of houses which flanks the main street and offers a post office, village shop and two pubs. The Pennine and Teesdale Ways run alongside the village and provide excellent walking through beautiful countryside whilst the magnificent waterfalls at High Force are also worth visiting. The stunning countryside in this area also offers great opportunities for bird watching and cycling, making it an excellent vacation spot for those who love the great outdoors.

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?

Great location for exploring - lots to see and do within about one and a half hour drive in any direction. Lots of walks around the area without having to travel anywhere. White Scar Caves highly recommenced as is Wensleydale cheese factory /gift shop.

Had a great time and also great to be able to let Scruff dog out knowing the area was gated and she could not get out. Spent her time looking out gate at the cows!

The charming and most helpful owners helped us to have a perfect stay at extremely short notice. The good sized cottage accommodation allowed us all to enjoy being together as a family. It made our holiday.

It felt like home from home. A great deal of care had clearly been taken to make sure guests were comfortable and had everything they need.
Mrs Foskett

I would like to say how much we enjoyed our first Sykes holiday cottage - Westfield Cottage at Mickleton. The cottage was spotless, well equipped and in a beautiful area. Well placed for walks along the disused railway line just down the lane; nice flat walking for old bones like ours. Will definitely book this cottage again.

Mrs Kirkham

A lovely, comfortable and warm cottage in a superb location. A very hospitable owner who welcomed us in person. Lovely comfortable beds, a kitchen table with room enough for six people to sit comfortably around for extended family meals and an absolutely superb level of cleanliness throughout the property. We loved it, and are already planning to visit the cottage again next autumn!
Mrs Stott
September 2014
As I also booked Garden Cottage next door, both were well above our expectations and we thoroughly enjoyed our time spent there for our special celebrations in the village of Mickleton just less than a mile down the road. The owner was delightful!
Mrs McCubbin

Absolutely fab cottage, warm and cosy with plenty of space for the five of us. Great views from the track and very quiet. Perfect spot for walking. Lovely local pubs. Helpful hosts too. The stars would have been amazing if the clouds had behaved!

Mrs Scott
August 2011
The cottage was comfortable and clean and tidy. The owners were welcoming and friendly. There was ample information provided by way of leaflets as to local tourist information and it is a lovely part of the country with so much to do we weren't able to do it all! The owners very kindly brought round a 1/2 dozen fresh eggs which were lovely and my husband got a bit of fishing in.
Mr Lumley

The cottage was just right for us. Walks from property and information about the area excellent. Access to Middleton, which was great as the local village is an enjoyable walk. Fishing greatly enjoyed.
Mr Kerr

Mr Henderson
May 2009
The cottage was immaculate and very comfortable. Our host met us and made us feel very welcome. She even found the time in a busy lambing period to let my wife bottlefeed and hold the new born lambs. This was the best holiday we have had in this area. Highly recommended

Mrs Hall

As I regularly visit that area I would say that this by far is the best property I have stayed in, the setting was fantastic, quiet. The property was clean tidy everything that was required was there. I will be booking this cottage again.
Mr Hawkins

Lovely area for walking; access to fishing a bonus; good, cheap bakery in Middleton-on-Tees.
Mr Sykes
January 2005
We were really impressed by the cleanliness and comfort of Westfield Cottage. The effort made by the owner was obvious. We even had a lit Christmas tree in the lounge to complement the season. We shall certainly consider going back - hopefully in spring/summer to take advantage of the beautiful countryside.
Mr Casey
December 2004
The location is wonderfully out of the way and the host was perfect. The best of England.
Mr Nevin
December 2004
The location is excellent, free of traffic and noise, and well placed for visits to surrounding countryside walks and local services in Middleton and Barnard Castle. Also interesting to be on a working farm. Well worth the rent.

Great Location. Cottage was immaculate and well presented. We were 4 adults and a 3 year old child. We only had a weekend at the cottage, but it had everything we required even if we had stayed much longer. We'd love to return again one day. The owner was welcoming and available to us should we have needed anything. It really felt like a home from home.
September 2014
3 bedroom cottage. Easy access to the Lake District and many villages, reservoirs and walks about the place. The owner we saw a couple of times, and was always very helpful. However she also left us alone to enjoy our holiday.
December 2012
We took our three kids to this cottage for half-term. It was so cosy and had great accommodation. We walked up and down the Tees Valley way and railway, doing most of the Cleveland Way between Cauldron Snout and Barnard Castle. It was great to walk from the door. High and Low Force are great as is the Bowes Museum with its silver mechanical swan. The local pubs (Rose in in Mickleton and Rose and Crown in Romaldkirk) were wonderful. What a wonderful off the track spot. The hosts are very kind. We loved how quiet it was. We waited for clear nights for the amazing stars which was our only disappointment.
September 2011
We had a wounderful vaccation due to the great location and briliant cottage.The area had plenty to offer and all in all the best vaccation in a long time
October 2011
Loved the location. Ideal for walks and close to towns and places to eat. Dog loved it too as he never got walked as much as when we were here. Hope to go back here again
July 2012
My husband & I had a very enjoyable week at this cottage. It was very clean & the owner was very welcoming and gave us some lovely fresh eggs. The only downside was that the cottage was quite dark mainly due to the huge trees outside, apart from that it made a great base to explore this lovely part of the country.
Mr Turner
January 2016
Westfield Cottage is a very good property, roomy and welcoming. We had 6 adults here and accommodation was more than sufficient.
September 2010
Owner very friendly but not intrusive. Cottage spot on, quite basic but everything we needed and clean and comfortable. Fishing, walks and village all without needing to get in the car. Unfortunately nearest dog friendly pub that did food had closed recently, other pub very friendly. Beautiful area, would definitely like to return.
December 2009
This was our second visit and the welcome we recieved was on both visits fantastic.We were made to feel at home straight away by the owners.The house was for us ideal lovely warm and cosy when we stayed in the Spring and so attractive in Summer.The location is perfect for walking or driving the many scenic routes on the doorstep. Plenty of places to eat from country pubs to restaurants and if the weather is bad several places of interest nearby to visit.The owners were great always willing to help but not intrusive.The best part of the stay for my wife was when Doreen during a busy lambing period somehow found the time to let her bottle feed a lamb,many thanks Doreen you made her day.Though we have already been twice we will hopefuly be returning this year.
