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

    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.

    This was our 2nd visit to Buckswell Cottage and it is just so lovely. Ideal for dogs as the garden is enclosed which makes life a lot easier. The views from the sun room/lounge are absolutely amazing. It's a great base too because there are so many beautiful walks and places to visit, many only about a 20 minute drive



    out of 10

    Lovely clean cottage. The views are fantastic and it is very peaceful with only the sounds of the bird and lambs. Would recommend if you want a quiet restful break.

    Had a fantastic time away, the cottage was lovely and the hosts were nice. However if you plan on taking pets there’s a couple of things to know: The garden that it advises is there is not one of which you can let dogs play in without supervision, and should be kept on leads in the garden as our German Shephard and Jack Russel both managed to jump the wall. Also, the countryside is beautiful, however there aren’t any trails around for you to let dogs off the lead, and dogs must be kept on leads at all times. We even tried driving places but there was nowhere to let them run around off lead due to the farm animals. All in all however, the cottage itself was amazing and I thoroughly enjoyed my time there.

    Quiet location with lovely views. Comfortable and relaxing. Owners welcoming and friendly but not imposing. Appreciated milk, cakes etc on arrival. Not far to travel to shops by car. Lots to see and do in all directions.

    This was our second break at Buckswell Cottage and it won’t be our last. The location is outstanding with beautiful views over Hury reservoir. It’s secluded yet within easy reach of local amenities. There are good shops and restaurants a short drive away but if you want to be reclusive there’s no need to see another soul! Good walks although we drove to the reservoir car parks (5 minutes) and walked from there. You can hit the pennine way and Hannah Hauxwell’s farm is a mile up the road. Sunrises and sunsets can be outstanding and a morning cuppa on the patio sets you up for the day. Plenty of wildlife around and lots of birding available from the sofa!! Perfect cottage
