The cottage was absolutely perfect so clean and comfortable. A great location and in a lovely spot. There was everything you could possibly need in the cottage and more. Ang the owner had thought of everything. We had a really enjoyable week and would thoroughly recommend Bracken Hill Cottage.
Very quiet location close to some lovely walks. Extensive information available in the cottage with a very friendly, helpful owner. The most dog friendly cottage we have stayed at. Extremely clean, well maintained cottage with an enclosed garden. We will most certainly visit again.
On arrival we were welcomed by the owner Ang. She showed us round her beautiful recently renovated cattle barn. What a fantastic job they made of it! An absolutely stunning transformation - beautifully decorated to a really high standard. It had everything that we needed - a proper home from home. Not only was there a welcome pack for us - milk, cheese, butter, bread, eggs, biscuits, tea, coffee and a bottle of bubbly - but also some locally hand made treats for our dog - a really lovely touch.
The cottage is ideally situated for walking and there are many attractions easily accessible by car. We visited Beamish museum (a definite must for insight into days gone by) and also did part of the North coastal path walk at Seaham (the marina development is well worth a visit). The Durham dales are only about half an hour away and make for great walks.
Overall this was one of the loveliest cottages that we have stayed at, and is highly recommended.
Fantastic, well equipped cottage in a tranquil location. The cottage was immaculate on our arrival, and we were greeted by Ang the owner who is extremely pleasant and accommodating
Lovely walks from the doorstep, but within easy reach of local attractions.
