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.
Cheeseborough House was a wonderful base for exploring the Durham Dales. Lovely accommodation in the picturesque town of Barnard Castle. We will certainly book again, perhaps in the summer months when we can enjoy the first rate outdoor facilities.
We were 2 families with a wide range of aged children from 18 month to 12 years, the amazing well kept comfy home was excellent for all ages with fantastic play area even table tennis and so much space to play we staying in the grounds of the cottage all weekend as it had everything we could of wished for. Thank you
We have stayed in many cottages in the UK over the last decade and this is definitely one of the best. Mill Byre is tastefully decorated, comfortably furnished and enjoys lovely views over the surrounding countryside.
