“Brilliant Accomodation”

A group of 18 of us stayed here for the bank holiday weekend for my mums 60th birthday. We all had an amazing time. The accomodation is fantastic. From the fresh eggs and welcome biscuits on arrival to the use of the pool and hot tub. The kids loved the hot tub and pool and also the games room which was solely ours to use for the whole weekend. The location is good to. Far enough so it is peaceful but just a short drive to the local town. We couldn't have asked for more for my mums birthday.

Only thing I would suggest is maybe a fridge in the games room to keep drinks when everyone over there is playing.

“hidden gem”

what a hidden treasure in the heart of Teesdale. The cottage we stayed in was Low Barn caters for wheel chairs and the bathroom has grab handles to assist users.
It has two bedrooms and a large sitting room. The kitchen dinner is ample big enough for a family of four to five. On arrival we found a jug of milk in the fridge, fresh farm eggs and a plate of biscuits to go with the tea and coffee. There was everything we needed which saves on baggage, tea towels and cleaning products along with ample bath towels. There is a fantastic pool house and spa/Jacuzzi. A mini gym and games room with a sitting area with fantastic views of the area. For dog owners there is a dog loo and a large field for your dog to exercise in.

“Beautiful cottages with added extra of pool and jacuzzi”
Reviewed 8 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

My family and I have just got back from a week at East Briscoe Farm, the location is amazing if you like walks in the beautiful country side.
The cottages was like home from home, it has everything and more that you would need for a break away. The rooms were spacious and very clean and beds were so comfy!
There is an amazing pool, Jacuzzi and games room which you can book for your own private use which was an added luxury.
Barnard Castle is beautiful and just a short drive away, we went for a lovely Sunday lunch at the fox and hound, this was amazing!
Emma & Chris were on hand when we needed them but just left us to get on which was great.
cant wait to come back again!
thank you so much, Mia x

This is a great venue for a relaxing get away, would also be a great venue for hen party due to pool room!!!

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 25 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Booked all the cottages for my daughter's Hen Party. We had an amazing time. Everyone was really impressed with the cottages, a lovely welcome from Chris and Emma, the heating and lights were on when we arrived and also biscuits which went down a treat! Cottages had everything you would need with lots of lovely little touches. The pool house and games room were a great area for us all to sit and chill and what great scenery. Even enjoyed talking to the chickens! Would definitely recommend these cottages and will definitely be going back. Great for larger parties or just a nice quiet weekend away, even had swings for the kids and a sandpit.
