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.
After months of lockdown we decided to get away but wanted somewhere very clean and secluded. The Shepherds Hut ticks both boxes and a lot of thought has gone into its positioning with great views from the hut whilst maintaining privacy to take full advantage of the outside bath, the setting sun through the tree in the evening and we were delighted by the visits from the woodpecker.

Staying at Church Cottage with its local shop, pub and chippy was perfect. Listening to the church bells reminding you to enjoy the public walks along the river was so healthy. Moving on to stay at the next Mill cottage “Byre” for a few weeks escape.

Cheeseborough House is lovely. Very well equipped. Lovely sun trap in the courtyard. No problem with parking right outside the house. Less than a minute's walk to the River Tees with its lovely walks. 5 minute's walk into Barnard Castle with supermarkets, at least 2 chippies, restaurants and pubs as well as independent shops for knick-knacks and antiques. Excellent extra work done to make it feel very safe from the Covid Pandemic point of view. We'll definitely be back.
Had a wonderful weeks stay here. Kate was very welcoming and the little treats left for us were most welcoming.
Setting is secluded yet many interesting places nearby. Hot tub was fun and just a perfect temperature.
The barn was so spacious and with 7 of us there was still somewhere to go if you wanted a quiet time. Furniture and beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was the best equipped kitchen I have ever seen, everything and more has been carefully thought of. We had some great nights round the big table playing games.
Our Grandaughter who turned 6 during our holiday loved the play...more
