Large lawned garden with patio garden furniture and BBQ. Bike store. Private parking for 2 cars. No smoking. Please note No children including babes in arms. The property has a natural water supply from a spring.\n Perfectly nestled away overlooking the beautiful Hury Reservoir Buckswell Cottage really is set in the most magical of surroundings within the grounds of a working upland farm. With south facing views overlooking the stunning scenery of Baldersdale guests will find this detached cottage a perfect retreat for a peaceful romantic break or creative and art inspired holiday. With views from every window there’s always something new to see.\n\nThe unspoilt beauty of this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty can help you relax and unwind from everyday life. Unleash your creativity by drawing on nature to write paint draw or photograph all the area has to offer. The peace and tranquillity can work wonders for guests helping them feel refreshed whilst creating lasting memories. \n\nPerfect for walkers and cyclists there are many established public footpaths that pass directly through the dale including the Pennine Way. They link with the small villages of Romaldkirk Mickleton Middleton-inTeesdale and Egglestone providing many scenic walks. A popular route winds along the banks of Hury Reservoir and can be extended further to link with Blackton and Balderhead reservoirs before taking you past the former home of the famous Hannah Hauxwell. The land she farmed is now a Site of Special Scientific Interest due to the diverse flora and fauna it boasts. For avid birdwatchers this habitat supports a variety of native birds some of which are on the red list for endangered species. Examples to keep a look out for in the surrounding landscape are the curlew lapwing and the black grouse.\n\nAlternatively there is fly fishing for trout on Hury Reservoir or water sports including sailing and windsurfing on nearby Grassholme Reservoir. A little further afield but still within a 10 mile drive there are opportunities to go clay pigeon shooting golfing or enjoy a gentle stroll to High Force waterfall.\n\nThe quaint little villages between Buckswell Cottage and the historic market town of Barnard Castle are also well worth a visit. Between them they have a good variety of shops including butchers bakers fish and chip shops pubs cafés bistros arts and craft shops and antique shops. The Bowes Museum Raby Castle and Eggleston Abbey can be reached within a 30-minute drive. Shop 5 miles pub and restaurant 4 miles. \n " https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/141/840/1416669.jpg UKC2739

    Excellent cottage in a stunning location, pity storm Dennis joined us for our break !!



    out of 10

    We stayed during storm Ciara, so we didn't have chance to do much exploring of the local area. It was a spectacular place to watch the storm from though, as the big windows in the living room give a panoramic view of the valley and reservoir. It's a good size cottage for a couple and comfortable. Definitely worth a visit for a peaceful holiday.

    Lovely cottage in a beautiful setting, short walk to Hury Reservoir which was great for walking our dog. The cottage was very well equipped and was comfortable, although we found the bed to be a little hard and not very comfy. Very well equipped with DVD's and CD's and had everything required. There was home made scones and cakes waiting for us on arrival which was a lovely touch, as well as the provision of milk, teabags and coffee. The only critic I would say is that as were staying during Christmas week it would have been nice if the cottage had been dressed with a few Christmas decorations or festive touches. Having said this we would love to visit again in the future and we would recommend the cottage.

    We had a great weekend at Buckswell Cottage. The cottage has everything you need and the views are amazing. The owners were very nice and friendly and we arrived to a lovely afternoon tea. If you are looking to relax and get away from it all then this is the ideal place to stay. We have already booked to return in the summer.

    Lovely few days, the most stunning location followed by a walk around the reservoir. The cottage had everything that we needed and more. Warm and cosy would definitely recommend.

    I wanted a quiet and relaxing break and Buckswell Cottage delivered in spades! The location is stunning and the cottage had everything I needed. I loved sitting in the lounge with a book and a cuppa occasionally looking out to the fantastic scenary - eye-catching whatever the weather! Afternoon tea with delious cakes and milk in the fridge was greatly apprieciated on arrival and the owners were welcoming but not intrusive. My 2 dogs are both 13+ so don't need a long walk, therefore along the lane on the lead was enough together with the enclosed garden. This is sheep country so many places will require dogs to be on a lead i.e. the walk round the reseviour so be prepared to look further afield for off the lead walks.

    A beautiful relaxing stay in the cottage, which is in a perfect location. Well equipped kitchen with real fire gives it a special feel. Bathroom dated and needs refurbishing, which I'm sure the owners will get round to now that the cottage is fully booked. We will definitely return as it is a precious spot to recharge batteries and take time to relax. Thank you

    out of 10

    Just had a week at Buckswell Cottage and wish we'd book fir 2 weeks. The cottage is lovely and arrived to afternoon tea which was delicious. The owners, John and Margaret were so friendly and stopped to chat a few times and ask if everything was ok. The views are to die for and we took our dog on a different walk every day. We will definitely be booking for next summer.
