    We loved staying in this cottage. Situated in a great location for us to visit Durham City, Beamish and Weardale. The cottage was comfortable and nicely decorated. It had all the equipment we needed. Located in the centre of the village we found some great restaurants, cafes and little shops nearby. The house looks out onto the lovely village green. We will be back!

    Pleasant stay of 6 days, in a very busy village. The bed was not very comfortable and the cold tap to the bath & shower did not work.So run a bath & ladle cold into it from the sink ! But no big problem,otherwise an enjoyable stay.

    The cottage is located in an excellent position for all local amenities. There are a variety of takeaways and a local Spar. There are a selection of restaurants within the village. There is also a pub within 3 minutes walk. The outside yard which is full of plants and a table is a little sun trap and a great place to sit and have a drink while the dogs were sunbathing. The surrounding countryside offers lovely walks and within a short drive you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. The cottage is fully stocked with everything you would need and the welcome pack on arrival is very much appreciated. The lounge is comfortable and the bed gave us some much needed deep sleeps - very comfy. It is perfect as a place to relax and also great for exploring the surrounding area. We had 2 dogs with us and they were very happy with the walks which are literally on the doorstep. There is a disused railway line which offers a flat walk in both directions from the cottage which offer beautiful scenery. We will definitely be heading back very soon.

    A great little cottage in a fantastic location. Stayed whilst husband working in the area. Great walks with dog's in the area & some eating establishments definitely worth a visit, all in walking distance. Both Ravello's & Crinnians served fantastic food. Crinnians is dog Friendly in large bar area so perfect for eating out with dog's.

    Lovely little cottage in a perfect location. My husband is working in the area so myself & the dog's came to stay near by for a week. As my husband had the car for work I didn't venture far with the dog's but didn't need to with great pubs , shops & dog walks on the doorstep. We went to Crinnions 2 day's in a row as food was so nice there & they allow you in the bar with dog's. Lovely lady owner also very helpful. Nice touches with biscuits, chocolate and milk left too. We hope to see you again soon.

    I had such a good time and will definitely return. The cottage is amazing, just home from home with every comfort you could want. Everything in the way of amenities is on the doorstep, such a lovely location. My dog settled in immediately and the village green immediately opposite is perfect for a quick exercise with longer walks nearby too. Excellent!
