Beautiful cottage. So comfortable and well equipped. A lovely welcoming package for us and our dog when we arrived. Very secure and private. A truly lovely place. Would definitely recommend this cottage.

“Lovely, cosy barn conversion of excellent high standard.”

We stayed here whilst visiting our daughter in Durham. The barn conversion is done to a very high standard with underfloor heating and a log burner, which makes it warm and cosy. It is equipped to a high standard and is a delightful place to stay. The owner, Ang, is very welcoming and helpful. The barn is in a peaceful and quiet location but only 15 minutes walk to a good local pub and 25 minutes drive to Durham.

Angie has done a great job in setting up her holiday cottage with excellent attention to detail.
Dog friendly and a warm welcome from her in person as well as a substantial welcome pack of goodies for all - including dog!
Good location for visiting many regional attractions.
Quality all round.

A beatifully decorated and perfectly sized cottage, ideal for a short break with our two greyhounds Hawk and Treacle.

The cottage is very well equipped, including everything you could need for humans and hounds - even home made dog treats on arrival.

A very peaceful location. None of us have slept so well in ages! There is also Plenty to do in the local area, with Beamish, Durham CCC, WWT Washington and Hexham just a short drive away.

Ang the proprietor is both helpful and friendly. I'm sure we will return.

“Excellent cottage, spotless and highly recommended”

Came here with my husband and border collie Angus. The cottage is immaculate and fully equipped with everything you could possibly need, even for the dog. Ang had even provided dog biscuits with Angus name printed on the wrapper.
The location is ideal for visiting all the sights around County Durham but still very secluded and quiet.
Would definitely come back here
