No smoking.\nSituated in the peaceful and quaint village of Romaldkirk which is nestled within the Dales this detached barn conversion adjacent to the owner’s home really is the perfect location for guests wishing to enjoy a quiet romantic break a walking or cycling holiday or just to really explore the beauty of the surrounding areas. Nestled between Swaledale and Weardale Romaldkirk lies in Teesdale which is a peaceful haven of tranquillity nature and ever changing landscapes. Perfect for walkers The Dovecote is right at the heart of many established public footpaths and walkways. Ideal for walkers of all abilities there is some stunning scenery and leisurely strolls along the side of the river to more taxing trails along the rugged fells. The Teesway footpath is easily accessible and takes guests through to the village of Cotherstone and beyond or maybe head towards Mickleton and then even further afield towards Middleton-in-Teesdale. Other walks lead towards the reservoirs of Grassholme or across towards Hury. In the heart of Romaldkirk is an award-winning pub and restaurant so why not enjoy a lovely meal on the walk back towards the property. A little further afield guests will be able to leave their car behind at the Bowlees Visitor Centre and then walk along to two of the most incredible waterfalls in the area Low Force and High Force. This is also an ideal spot for guests who are wanting a more peaceful holiday with the chance to visit and explore some of the local historic attractions and National Trust properties there are many to visit in the area. Egglestone Hall and Gardens is just 2 miles away Bowes Museum is 6 miles and definitely an attraction worth a visit Raby Castle with it’s famous deer that graze in the grounds is 12 miles. Barnard Castle 6 miles is a historic market town that offers a quaint high street that is bustling with antiques shops restaurants bistros and cafes. 30 miles away guests will be able to take a day trip to the city of Durham where there are boutiques shops restaurants bistros and also a theatre and leisure centre. Take a day trip to the beautiful scenery of the Lake District which is a mere 45-mile drive away. Shop 4½ miles pub and restaurant ½ mile.\n" https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/898/840/898801.jpg 30765

    We had such a great stay at the Dovecote. It was beautifully decorated, really warm and the biggest bed I’ve ever seen. The pictures don’t do the cottage justice, it was more than we could imagine and we really recommend it.

    An extremely cosy, comfortable hideaway for 2.

    A beautiful little cottage with everything we needed for our 2 night stay. The welcome hamper was a lovely touch. We would definitely return.

    Hi Spec accommodation, well equipped, very thoughtful welcome pack. Quiet location ideal base for walking and exploring the area.



    out of 10

    Lovely homely cottage in a beautiful area, close to some great reservoir, river and waterfall walks. Shops not far (in next village to local one) and excellent local pubs less than half a mile walk. Even having the bathroom downstairs didn't cause any problems and anyway the superb shower made up for that. The super king bed was very comfy and the kitchen was well equipped. Would definitely return. Lots more to see that we didn't get done.

    A very well equipped and comfortable cottage with great style. Lots of good places to eat close by. Wonderful places to visit in the superb North Penines countryside.

    A very well equiped cottage. Beautifully presented and good quality fixtures. Ideal for two people especially with the twin bed option.
