    We had a wonderful relaxing holiday, so peaceful. The owners are lovely people, there if you need them but not at all intrusive. We had fresh home baked bread on our arrival. It was lovely and warm with the log burner. Nice views from the windows. The cottage was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. Lots to see in the area and shops nearby. Beautiful rainbows seen frequently from the kitchen window.

    We had a fabulous holiday over the Christmas period at Ashlea. Both Anne and Graham were extremely hospitable with some very generous gifts in our arrival. Our whole cottage was decorated for Christmas which my little girls loved. We would definintley return.

    This is an exceptional cottage in a very nice area. The cottage is well equipped and is spotless, a real home from home. Ann and Greame are warm and genuine hosts (they even put up Christamas decorations which was a really nice touch) It'a a place that warrants a revisit.....can't fault it

    Delightful bungalow set in a wonderful quiet location but only 5 minutes drive from the pretty town of Barnard Castle. The cottage is spotless and has everything you could possibly need to enjoy your stay. Every room is a room has a view. Perfect hosts.
