“Excellent cottage for family gatherings”

Just as shown in the pictures. Tastefully decorated, warm, inviting.

Ground floor bedroom/bathroom is excellent for anyone with a disability or limited mobility.

Very well equipped, spacious kitchen. A dozen people can comfortably have dinner around the large dining table(s). Good seating for 8 in the main living room.

Heating and appliances all worked well and in good condition. Dishwasher, 2 fridges, freezer, 2 ovens, washer and dryer.

Bathrooms well equipped. Water pressure good. Shower cubicles are typically British, not the largest but OK.

Nice flat screen TV and DVD player.

Wifi good enough for multiple people browsing and single Netflix user, sometimes struggled with multiple concurrent Netflix users.

A welcoming and helpful owner.

Would definitely stay there again.

Nice size for a larger party - fully equipped and clean. Good walks in the area within walking distance to a lovely oldy worldly pub, very welcoming too.

We were a party of 10 ranging in age from 7 - 64 years celebrating my daughter's 40th birthday and could not have had a better weekend. The cottage is superb, has a lovely warm feel, with an excellent layout for larger parties with plenty of space and seating for everyone. We have stayed in many cottages over the years but this must be the best equipped we have ever come across and the garden, with trampoline and swings and the games room, with pool table and wii, were fantastic, the children were entertained all weekend- a great bonus! The owners could not be nicer or more accommodating - in spite of it being a particularly busy time on the farm she took time to show the children the newborn lambs and other animals which they found magical and will never forget. Frosterley is a lovely, friendly village with shop, chip shop and 2 local pubs which serve food right on your doorstep. All together we had a fabulous weekend and nobody wanted to leave! Hopefully we will be get back again. Highly recommended.
