With the River Tees just a matter of feet away (trout fishing by arrangement), and access via a private lane alongside the river, this cottage is idyllic. With the owners living next door, you will not feel isolated, but can unwind in privacy and quiet. Our all weather tennis court  is just a short walk through the wood. For cyclists we have bicycle storage.

Upstairs has two bedrooms, a large double bedroom with an ancient oak headboard while the attic style bedroom has two single beds, one standard and one small. The bathroom has shower over bath. French doors lead you from the dining area to the garden and down to the river.

Included in your price are a welcome hamper, linen and towels, electricity, logs and coal. Frozen meals can be ordered in advance and the cottage has the joy of fresh vegetables from our garden and free range eggs available. If a cot and high chair will be needed they too are available on request. Apart from Wi-Fi and the usual television and music facilities we also have a payphone.

There are several excellent pubs nearby, one being a 10 minute walk away and another being a five minute drive. There is a bus stop 10 minutes away. Barnard Castle has a good selection on shops, including antique shops, and banks and post office There is a weekly farmers' market.

Sorry, no dogs.
