“hidden gem”

person found this review helpful

what a hidden treasure in the heart of Teesdale. The cottage we stayed in was Low Barn caters for wheel chairs and the bathroom has grab handles to assist users.
It has two bedrooms and a large sitting room. The kitchen dinner is ample big enough for a family of four to five. On arrival we found a jug of milk in the fridge, fresh farm eggs and a plate of biscuits to go with the tea and coffee. There was everything we needed which saves on baggage, tea towels and cleaning products along with ample bath towels. There is a fantastic pool house and spa/Jacuzzi. A mini gym and games room with a sitting area with fantastic views of the area. For dog owners there is a dog loo and a large field for your dog to exercise in.

“Beautiful cottages with added extra of pool and jacuzzi”
Reviewed February 8, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

My family and I have just got back from a week at East Briscoe Farm, the location is amazing if you like walks in the beautiful country side.
The cottages was like home from home, it has everything and more that you would need for a break away. The rooms were spacious and very clean and beds were so comfy!
There is an amazing pool, Jacuzzi and games room which you can book for your own private use which was an added luxury.
Barnard Castle is beautiful and just a short drive away, we went for a lovely Sunday lunch at the fox and hound, this was amazing!
Emma & Chris were on hand when we needed them but just left us to get on which was great.
cant wait to come back again!
thank you so much, Mia x

This is a great venue for a relaxing get away, would also be a great venue for hen party due to pool room!!!

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed January 25, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Booked all the cottages for my daughter's Hen Party. We had an amazing time. Everyone was really impressed with the cottages, a lovely welcome from Chris and Emma, the heating and lights were on when we arrived and also biscuits which went down a treat! Cottages had everything you would need with lots of lovely little touches. The pool house and games room were a great area for us all to sit and chill and what great scenery. Even enjoyed talking to the chickens! Would definitely recommend these cottages and will definitely be going back. Great for larger parties or just a nice quiet weekend away, even had swings for the kids and a sandpit.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed January 4, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We stayed in West Cottage over Christmas - 2 adults and 3 children. Everything was perfect, from the biscuits and fresh eggs on arrival to the facilities, to the games room, the cleanliness, the welcoming owner...
Had a lovely time in this cottage which had everything you could possibly need and the swimming pool and games room were well used by our three (9,11,13).
Cannot wait to book our stay for next year!
Thank you Chris.
