Our self catering Holiday Cottages are set in beautiful rolling unspoilt countryside in Lower Teesdale on the Durham/Yorkshire border. Conveniently situated within easy reach of Northern England's most beautiful scenery and historic sites, including the North Pennines, Yorkshire Dales, Durham Cathedral, Barnard Castle, Richmond, Hadrians Wall, Newcastle and the Lakes. Locally there is an abundance of walking and cycling routes through peaceful lanes and quiet limewashed hamlets with everything from a Michelin-starred restaurant, to welcoming local pubs, restaurants, farm shops and cafes.
Mill Granary and Mill Byre are two luxuriously appointed stone built 18th century converted barns, sleeping eight and seven guests, these are separated by open fields and a wild flower meadow teeming with wildlife. They are great for family gatherings and celebrations.
Our village property is 16th century Church Cottage which can sleep four guests. It occupies an idyllic setting on the quiet green in the historic village of Gainford.
Cheeseborough House is our jewel in Barnard Castle, a 19th century grade two-listed town house within walking distance of Bowes Museum, shops and restaurants, sleeping four guests.
Excellent cosy cottage in a pleasant area. The owners were very accommodating too.
We will definitely stay again as the whole experience was relaxing and comfortable
Highly recommend this cottage and village.
We have just returned from a fantastic week in Barnard Castle. Our stay at Cheeseborough Cottage was first class.
I would thoroughly recommend this gorgeous little cottage, which was immaculately clean, spacious, warm & very cosy. It had everything we could of needed & the little town was fantastic too.
Kate the owner had very kindly put some milk in the fridge & baked some delicious home-made scones ready for our arrival.
We were delighted & thought this was such a lovely gesture.
We can not wait to return for our next stay.
Mill Granary is a beautiful place to stay for a holiday. It is decorated and equipped to feel like a real home. Attention to detail is noticeable in a large CD collection in the kitchen and a range of up to date / classic DVD's in the living room for both adults and children. There are games and magazines and any number of utensils and gadgets (a Nespresso machine!) in the kitchen. The toiletries are extremely generous with baskets in each bathroom containing full size handwash, shampoo, body lotion and bubble bath in organic skincare products, plus tissues and cotton wool!
