The
Experience

Teesdale is timeless – all dry stone walls and wildflower-spangled meadows rising into stark fells… then it’s home to warm limbs by the wood-burning stove. All four rooms of this threshing barn turned cottage exude character and craftsmanship. The sitting room features an arched door with stone surround and a cat’s cradle of naked beams; the kitchen, well-equipped and beautifully fitted, has a wooden sprung bench above the radiator; and if you have any parts left to warm, the impressive wet room has a heated marble seat beneath its rainfall shower. Couples will love the king-sized iron bedstead in a cute bedroom with rustic furnishings and reclaimed oak floor; kids or extra guests have a sofabed in the sitting room. Sally stocks a welcome basket with locally sourced products, wine, and herbs from the secluded south-facing garden. Follow the river Tees one mile west to the market town Barnard Castle with its Norman ruins, antique shops and Bowes Museum, one of northern England’s cultural gems.

Reviews

Beautiful, spacious and wonderfully kitted out. We enjoyed our short stay in this cottage at the end of August. What really made it special were the thoughtful extras, including a small stock of cooking basics, fresh eggs and flowers, hand made soaps, kindling and logs for the wood burner. Beautifully furnished and in a great location for walks from the doorstep and also drives to Yorkshire, Northumberland and around Durham.

Karen

A lovely warm welcome with a hamper full of goodies (including home-made marmalade), a wood burning stove already laid and a beautiful, spacious home with a fantastic big kitchen and a nice little sun-trap garden. We has a super easter exploring the local town of Barnard castle and the highest waterfall in the England, High Force. The owner Sally was very friendly and even found me a local campsite for my next visit, this time with fishing rods in tow to fish the river Tees. A beautiful home at very reasonable price offering a great stay and lots of good memories.

Greg

beautiful cottage, far bigger than looks on the photos, with views over the countryside from most windows and secluded courtyard garden. As mentioned by others, great welcome pack with local organic products and home made marmalade (so nice we ate it all!). The North Pennines is England's hidden secret, a lovely area to explore.

Jacky

This cottage is outstanding in every way. The conversion has been done with such beauty and simplicity that you feel a sense of joy as you look around. The welcome basket is stocked so generously and with such high quality that you feel spoiled. And the location is perfect. There are so many possible holidays here. Walk, climb hills, explore the river banks, read by the fire. Just don't do it on the dates we want to return.

Local points of interest from Sally Davies

  • Paradise for walkers and naturalists with rushing rivers, wild moorlands, ancient meadows and night skies dark enough for star-gazing.
  • Nestled between the North Pennines AONB and the Yorkshire Dales.
  • Explore the beautiful Teesdale Way and Pennine Way, or follow one of the numerous rail and cycle tracks.
  • Romantic landscapes with ruined abbeys and castles, inspiration for poets and artists, including Scott, Turner and Cotman.
  • A wealth of cultural, industrial and ecclesiastical heritage sites on the doorstep. Including The Bowes Museum, Raby Castle and Rokeby Park.
  • Excellent farm shops and cafes, a thriving farmers’ market-first Saturday of the month on the cobbles. Michelin starred restaurant and rated pub nearby for refuelling.
