Reviewed 15 February 2018 for a stay in February 2018

A convenient cottage in a quiet village next to the Pennine Way and near Barnards Castle. Easy parking, new kitchen & bathroom facilities and a nice little enclosed garden perfect for a dog.
Kind gifts of tea, milk & biscuits (also for dog) on arrival. Shame the place was freezing! Effective gas heater in kitchen tho and log burner(not cleaned) in sitting room. Had to buy more logs as only few provided. If you want a bath you may also need to increase the water temperature on the boiler.
Friendly village pub (Ancient Unicorn) with outstanding food in traditional old pub decor. Friendly well-intentioned owners of cottage too.

Management response:

Thank you for the review of Hilltop Cottage. We do find it strange that you found the cottage 'freezing', as we stay over ourselves on a regular basis. There is of course a thermostat on the landing which can be adjusted to each holiday makers preference. Likewise, the water temperature can easily be increased on the boiler as you have...
