We were met at the cottage by the owner who showed us round and gave some helpful advice about the area. The cottage itself was spotless and the beds and bedding were very comfy. There was plenty of room for 5 adults and 3 children. The hot tub was a great bonus!

The cottage was excellent, bedrooms were all very clean and had comfortable beds with hotel quality bed linen. Hot tub very handy just outside. An abundance of Lambs and rabbits in the surrounding fields was an added bonus. Nice big American style fridge was very handy meaning we had room for food and drinks to be kept cool. the owner was very welcoming and made us feel at home.

We hired Hoodgill Barn for a week and there was more than enough room for us all! The cottage is beautiful and the views full circle were stunning. All the rooms were decorated and furnished to a high standard and the cottage was very clean. The garden had a fantastic hot tub which was well used by us on those sunset evenings and there was plenty of grassed area for the children to play. The little touches made all the difference for us the owner met us and have lots of information about the area, there was a book with lots of information about the local area, cottage, and useful numbers and it even had a blender and slow cooker with plenty of cooking utensils (not just you usual 2 pans). The local village was a short drive (5minutes) from the cottage and had a co-op for nothing we ran out of. There were lots of cafes, places to eat and drink and a lovely play area for the kids. A short walk from the cottage 10/15 mins there were some beautiful footpaths leading to waterfalls and a visitors centre for coffee and cake! We made this walk a few times especially having a dog with us and the kids loved the rocked area they could explore right next to a beautiful waterfall. I can't recommend this cottage highly enough we will definitely be returning!!

What an absolutely fabulous find! Stayed here for a long weekend for my partners 30th birthday. Arrived to a very friendly owner who showed us round and explained how everything worked... including the fabulous hot tub. The house had been beautifully decorated with Christmas decorations which just made it feel so homely and welcoming. The local village is just a couple of miles away as is a great pub called the Strathmore Arms which is a must visit. Would highly recommend this property and we will be returning next year hopefully.

This is an amazing property, every single part of it was up to scratch, from the beds to the garden. The views from this property across the valley were just spectacular. I couldn't recommend it highly enough.

The cottage was really lovely and exceptionally clean. The hot tub was superb. The owners were really pleasant and helpful and told us to call them if we needed any help during our stay. Fortunately though, we didn't need their help with anything because everything we needed was present and in great working order.

Hoodgill Barn was a lovely little getaway for me and a group of friends. The cottage itself was very clean and accommodated our needs well! Despite the weather, we enjoyed a relaxing break with a change of scenery and not to mention a cheeky dip in the hot tub! Would definitely recommend staying here if you are looking for a quiet and relaxed break; good for a catch up with a group of friends or family!

Amazing barn.. great views, location and the owner Peter thought of everything! Made the stay very comfortable, fresh scented bedding, tea/ coffee and milk ready for us and everything you could possiblym need! Planning to re visit and would highly recommend to anybody :-) thanks Peter!

Two families of 4 stayed here the week of the Scottish Half Term break. the cottage is fantastic with everything you could ever need with 3 bathrooms ( one ensuite) and 4 bedrooms packed with character and charm. the owners and neighbours couldn't be more friendly and the local pubs are fantastic . Standout pub/restraint is the Strathmore Arms - take the public footpath at Low force, cross the suspension bridge and go over 2 fields and you are there - well worth the effort the food and patrons are fantastic. High Force and Low Force waterfalls are a must to see . We cannot wait to go back and miss the place already.

Beautiful cottage with loads of thoughtful extra touches! Brilliant views and the hot tub is lovely! Peter the owner was so helpful and friendly! Would highly recommend this cottage!

We were really impressed by the cottage and it's beautiful location. Lovely and spacious with some really modern aspects. All facilities and amenities superb. We used hoodgill as a base to explore the surrounding area including the low & highforce falls, near by Durham and a farm park a few miles away. A visit to Bowless visitor centre would be worthwhile, even for a tea/coffee and cake! We walked to the high force which would have been more pleasant had we not had babies in buggies! It was a real challenge which I wouldn't do again! Despite being warned it wasn't buggy friendly we made the journey anyway, it was a beautiful area and would highly recommend for others (suitably prepared) to venture there! We can laugh about it now!! My only comment would be about the 10pm hot tub curfew, it's not a criticism and I can understand why it's in place it's just that 9 or 10 would usually be the ideal time to relax once kids are in bed and that meant we didn't get to use very much during our stay. Overall would highly recommend to others.

We needed a cottage for a family 50th birthday celebration. We came from all over the UK. The location is convenient for the M6 and the A1M but is in a quiet beautiful area. The bedrooms one ensuite the others with bathrooms adjoining.The kitchen is well equipped, a comfy lounge with wood burner a big dinning room with a garden room. Leading to a hot tub. Walk out of the back garden to High Force,Low Force waterfalls and Gibsons Cave three amazing sights within this area of outstanding natural beauty.

stayed at Hoodgill Barn for a long weekend. On arrival we were met by Peter, the owner, who was very friendly and showed us around. The cottage itself is extremely comfortable with lots of lovely touches. Home from home. The hot tub was great for relaxing and there was seating in the garden (round picnic table and 2 benches. The sunroom allows you to enjoy that outside but in feeling if the weather is cool. The village of Middleton in Teesdale is nearby and has shops, coffee shops and a few bars. Can recommend the Teesdale Hotel for very reasonably priced lovely Sunday roast. The town of Barnard Castle is larger if more choice is needed. The High Force waterfall is outstanding to see. A perfect location for a relaxing break

I spent a fantastic long weekend with 5 of my girl friends enjoying the fabulous amenities that Hoodgill Barn had to offer. Peter was so helpful from the minute I contacted him to the end of our stay. The weather was pretty awful all weekend but the wood burning stove and hot tub made it a real joy to snuggle up warm and enjoy a weekend of relaxation. I highly recommend families and a group of friends to enjoy this lovely holiday home and it's beautiful surroundings. We have already said that we will be back!

Wow!!! from the moment Sharon and her hubby checked in Peter was very helpful and informative with the cottage and surrounding areas. Myself and family arrived to simply be amazed by this property. It's roomy, clean and has everything you need home from home. So much so we've already booked for next year. (we would usually always look a new property ) Thanks Peter for everything.
