    Excellent well presented and equipped cottage in a lovely part of the country. Spent a lovely short break at vale cottage. Plenty to do in and around the local area. Would love to book again. The welcome pack provided is very useful and the 2 farm dogs on site are great.

    Excellent holiday. Fantastic views, from a fantastic cottage and amenities. Loved the welcome park. Grand children loved seeing the horses & our daily visit from the farm dog. Wouldn't hesitate to book this cottage again .

    Very well equipped, spacious cottage. Finished to a high standard, loads of storage in bedrooms . Beautifully tranquil views over the rolling County Durham hills. Owner very helpful and accommodating when we had a problem . It was so nice to sit and have a coffee with the patio doors open and take in the scenery. Got the occasional visit from the friendly resident dogs Badger and Fudge. Easy enough to travel to Beamish, Durham city etc. Very near to the spectacular 'Kynren' outdoor show which is well worth seeing if staying in the area. Wouldn't hesitate to book this cottage again, we were very happy with our choice. Only think I think could have improved anything was some more comfy outdoor furniture to curl up on and watch the picturesque sunsets.

    The accommodation was well placed and a really relaxing place to stay, with beautiful views. Very well equipped and comfortable. Welcomed with flowers, wine, food essentials and lots of information about the local area. We really enjoyed our stay and completely recommend it. The only down side with children is to be aware of the electric fence around the fields.

    Comfortable, cosy, clean and spacious cottage with lovely views and rural location. Enjoyed seeing the horses, hens and dogs wandering past! Plenty of space, ideal for small children. Good location, with plenty to do within reasonable distance. Nice flowers and welcome pack on arrival.

    A fabulous place. Loads of room. Views are wonderful. Good sized bedrooms. Lovely walk in shower. Kitchen well equipped. Peaceful location. Residents animals friendly and entertaining. WIFI was sometimes unreliable. Would definitely go back. Easy reach is Newcastle, Durham and bit further but worth a visit the lakes.

    The best holiday cottage we have stayed in. Plenty of space for everyone ( their were four of us, three adults and one child) Very clean and comfortable beds, shower room fantastic, welcome pack of food and drink for our arrival. Comfortably warm, good base for reaching all parts of County Durham and Newcastle, even York. Loved the farm dogs visiting us, and the horses. We really miss the house and it's views,

    Stayed with daughter and 2 year old grandson. Cottage itself is excellent, everything you need except a freezer (ice compartment in fridge), wooden floors, well equipped kitchen, good sized towels. Large cot and high chair supplied. Broadband is erratic - very rural setting. Also windier than much of the surrounding area. Easy to leave on foot for a walk, but otherwise you need a car for everything except one pub which we didn't try. Lots to do within a reasonable distance, though. Grandson loved the horses, friendly dog and chickens.
