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.
Also a stunning Shepherds Hut with a chic interior lovingly created for you to enjoy. A perfect retreat for two.
Dogs are welcome to stay in the Mill Byre and Mill Granary.
We had a wonderful week getting away from it all in the beautiful hut.
The hut itself is very well equipped and we had plenty of place to store things even for a week away!
The bed area is a little piece of heaven and the cabin is wonderfully cozy in bad weather.

The hut os wonderfully rural so if you want to get away from it all thi...more
Stay was perfect for a family break. Cottage was in excellent condition, with everything (eg mod cons) you could wish for.

The cottage is well equipped for a comfortable stay and the garden is lovely and peaceful, perfect for relaxation. I would certainly recommend staying in this pretty cottage.
We have just returned from a wonderful week in Cheeseborough House. The house itself is a beautiful period property with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. The location is perfect with shops, restaurants, pubs and cocktail bars within a few minutes walk. The River Tees is on the doorstep along with plenty of other attractions to explore near by.
