“Beautiful”
Reviewed 9 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

I booked this beautiful cottage because it was dog friendly and i take my dog (Alfie) everywhere with me and husband if we can. The cottage is so well equipped with everything you would need for a break away. Decorated and furnish to a high standard. stunning location. We spent the day at the coast which is about 45 minute drive away. Lovely local walks close to the cottage with a lovely clear River Wear right at the side of the cottage. Everything was perfect and not one negative about this special get away cottage. And Bev the owner is lovely and so friendly nothing is to much trouble... Just perfect.

“Beautiful Cottage ,very comfortable 5 star property”
Reviewed 5 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We stayed for 5 nights the Cottage has a view over the river sitting in its own grounds. The Cottage itself is decorated & fitted out to a very high standard making our stay very comfortable & relaxing. Bev the owner is very welcoming and on hand if you require any help or advice. Highly recommend this property for a relaxing holiday in a beautiful part of the UK.

“Idyllic cottage in a fab location”
Reviewed 20 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Exactly what we had hoped for and more. We had a brilliant stay at Plum Tree and understand now why everyone is rushing back. We certainly will be. We enjoyed a lovely chilled out weekend, with some beautiful long walks and great pub meals. With Bev and Mark being so friendly and helpful. The cottage is beautiful, inside and out it's even better than the pictures. Seriously couldn't recommend Plum Tree more. We'll be back and this time with the dogs!

Located next to the River, excellent for fishing. The cottage is amazing, fully equipped, clean and really spacious. The bathrooms are amazing, kitchen has everything, underfloor heating and log burner if required. We had 3 nights here and did not want to leave. Will definitely return.

“Absolutely beautiful”
Reviewed 17 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We have just stayed here as a last minute break away and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We didn't book until later on in the day and Bev was very accommodating in allowing us to check in later at 8:30pm. Outstanding accommodation in a beautiful setting, so peaceful and relaxing. The cottage has all you'd need from utensils to washing liquid and the little touches are lovely. Can't wait to come back already. 1st class.
