The owner welcomed us and was very helpful with local information. The cottage is airy with plenty of light and is set in lovely grassy grounds that attract wildlife. A very peaceful setting to relax and rest.
The cottage was in a quiet peaceful location but close enough to main roads and towns to be able to explore the area easily. It would suit anybody wanting a relaxing holiday or an active holiday. The owners were friendly, the cottage was very comfortable, and the grounds were beautiful.

Perfect property location (quiet, beautiful), fantastic outdoor space (large, very pretty), modern open-plan layout to living/kitchen/dining room. Simple but very comfortable bedrooms, hosts' kind and thoughtful hospitality.
We were looking for property for our week long break and decided on Co Durham where we found this cottage, near enough shops and places to visit but quiet and peaceful enough for a rest. This is it! We found the cottage had everything we needed including wifi and an honesty box for the use of the telephone in the cottage if we required to contact the outside world.. The area did not have great mobile coverage but when you want peace, then mobiles don't matter. There is a well looked after, 4 acre garden to enjoy in this peaceful area.
We liked the warm welcome given by the owner, the high standard of the interior of the cottage, furniture, bed linen, decorations etc. The grounds were beautiful. The location was excellent to explore the area and it was excellent value. Will definitely return to this cottage.
It was very quiet and relaxing. We cannot recommend this property highly enough.
A beautiful place for a chilled out weekend with friends and family.
All the ameneties that you need were included.
Very large sitting, dining and kitchen area, two weel fitted bedrooms and modern updated bathroom with bath and shower.
Would definitely recommend and will almost certainly revisit.
A quietly located, well-decorated, detached cottage with genuine hospitality from the owner.
