    Lovely area, especially if you are a walker. Cottage well equipped for disabled. We found it a little cool until we lit the log burner but it was a very cold time. Quite a few pubs in the immediate area, tried most and wouldn't fault any of them, although all very different. Unfortunately a lot of places are only open Thursday, Friday, Sat and Sun over the winter. Unless you travel towards Bishop Auckland and find Sainsburys the only other shop is the coop about 4 miles away. No post office locally.

    Great cottage, all requirements provided and also lots of advice of the area given by the owner who lives nearby.



    out of 10

    Friendly host who gave useful advice regarding local tourist places. Strategically located near to areas of outstanding natural beauty.

    Nice cottage which is well equipped and comfortable. The owner was very welcoming and helpful. The cottage is quite remote - a car is essential. Plenty to do in the area - especially walking. Only minus (could be a plus for some) - no internet. Would go again.



    out of 10

    A very quiet relaxing holiday- considering it was a working farm! Wendy was a mine of local knowledge and information. A great starting point for lots of trips out and the cottage was wonderfully cosy and comfortable.
