Our Guest Reviews
One of the best cottages in the loveliest of locations we’ve ever stayed in. Ideally situated for all sorts of activities in all directions. Walks along the Derwent at Shotely Bridge and Blanchland are a joy.

Tanfield Railway and Causey Arch worth a visit. Too much to do not enough time!

We’ll have to come back.
We have really enjoyed our stay in your cottage, it’s perfect in every way. Thank you so much for all the local goodies. There is so much to see and do in the local area, we’ve done some beautiful walks and have also enjoyed relaxing on the decking in the sun when we returned from days out!

We will miss seeing such a fantastic view everyday, your cottage is in a perfect setting!
