Shepherds Lodge description

Holiday home
Shepherds Cottage is a stone-built detached cottage situated in a splendid rural location, on the edge of a small camping park and just a ten minute walk from the delightful village of Middleton-in-Teesdale and can sleep two people in one double bedroom. There is a separate shower room. The rest of this ground floor cottage contains an open plan living area with galley kitchen, dining area and sitting area with woodburning stove. To the outside of the property there is off road parking for one car and a patio area with furniture and a barbecue. Shepherds Cottage is a quirky cottage and is ideal for a couple looking for a romantic getaway in glorious countryside with walking from the doorstep.

The pretty Pennine town of Middleton-In-Teesdale lies in the heart of Teesdale, perched on the riverbank in the beautiful Tees Valley. Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this is a well-served little settlement and offers a good range of shops, pubs and places to eat. For more specialist amenities, the market town of Barnard Castle is within easy driving distance and provides everything a visitor could possibly need. The surrounding countryside is full of excellent walking opportunities through high, open moorland and pretty wooded valleys. Nearby are the waterfalls of High Force and Cauldron Snout, which are often considered to be amongst the most spectacular sights in the district.

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?

A beautiful little place! A gorgeous hospitable relaxing retreat, 10 out of 10. Everything is provided for you to just lay back and relax. What a lovely place to forget the rat race! We left feeling totally replenished. Thank you for lovely break, would, without a thought, definitely come again. Worth every penny!

A lovely little cottage that has everything you need for a relaxing break. It is set in a beautiful area. The shower was great, the bed was really comfy and we loved lighting the log burning stove on an evening. The site itself was very nice, clean and well maintained, the cottage was set in an ideal peaceful location on the site. We would definitely not hesitate to book here in the future.

We booked it for 50th Birthday fishing trip. When we arrived on site we were greeted by Grandma who gave us our instructions. When we entered the property it was very quaint, we loved it. The site facilities were immaculate, as was our cottage. As we got settled the owner Robin came and had a little chat, he was pleasant, made sure we had everything we needed and then left us to get on with our holiday. We walked a minuet away to the river which was lovely, you could hear it while sitting outside, the owls and rabbits, sheep etc. were no bother either. On top of having a fantastic time we had good weather too which was a bonus. We shall return, Thank you for making us welcome.
