“Charming, peaceful, and relaxing in comfort at this farm cottage”
Reviewed August 30, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This has been our fourth stay, at Farm Cottage and it suits us down to the ground. Well equipped and furnished. Scenery is fabulous. The chickens come to the door to be fed (if you want) and there are walks and great places for just sitting and contemplating. It's a place to go for a full refresh and boost. Well situated for the North Pennines, the town of Barnard Castle is nearby and there are plenty of sightseeing options. Eco friendly and the perfect place for a peaceful holiday.

“Lovely place, would go again”

We booked the studio cottage for three nights in June 2013 and were not dissapointed. Very clean and tidy with a lovely kitchen area. Situated in a beautiful location; we even spotted a deer and we had a visit from one of the farm's chickens. Would love to visit again and would recommend to anyone wanting a short break away from the city.

“Excellent cottages in an amazing part of the country”
Reviewed January 5, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

Booked to stay here at the very last minute for the New Year. The booking was really straight forward on the phone and we managed to negotiate a significant discount due the last minute nature of our booking.

Given that they were 8 of us (inc. one infant) we stayed in two of the cottages: West Cottage and Farm Cottage. Both cottages were of superb quality and the owners had thought of everything - down to and including eggs (from their own chickens) and milk.

The location and setting is beautiful and although the weather very wet and windy there are good walking routes directly from the cottage or a short drive away.

We will definitely be staying here again in the future.
