Amazing cottage and hosts
This cottage is perfect. There are 4 huge double bedrooms so plenty of space for at least 8 people. The hot tub is fab. The hosts were really lovely, greeting us with a bottle of Prosecco was a lovely touch. They were there to ensure everything was ok but never encroached on our privacy. There is a little play area for the kids too. The cottage itself is lovely inside. We also loved our daily visit from Honey & Nutty xxx

Fantastic week in this wonderful cottage.
The owner was very welcoming and helpful on arrival and the cottage was well equipped, clean and spacious, exactly as shown in the pictures and description, everything perfect, we couldn't fault it. Good location to visit Durham, Beamish and surrounding areas. The hot tub and nearby river with pebble beach was a hit with all the family, especially my grandchildren. Would definitely recommend this cottage and would stay here again! Thank you 😊

Issues with Hot Tub and electricity
We booked this as a group of 5 women who enjoy some down time in January and always look for a good hot tub. The hot tub did not work Wednesday or Thursday and we had issues with electricity (including a sparking light switch). The offer of compensation was a 50 discount on a future visit! I understand that things happen but felt insulted that it was felt OK that we had to spend more to get any recompense for not getting the relaxing time we booked A real shame as i convinced our party to go having been there before

Family Weekend Away
Had a great family weekend in a fantastic property. The care and attention to detail in the conversion has made the property perfect for a short stay. The owner couldn’t do enough to help us settle in despite a small issue with the hot tub (which was sorted by the Saturday morning) and the facilities were first class. Would definitely stay here again.

Annual Mummy Trip Away
A group of tired mummy's visited the cottage for a 2 night stay on the 25th January for some much needed relaxation. The Cottage was absolutely beautiful and finished to a very high standard with all the rooms being spacious and tastefully decorated. The owner was very welcoming, greeting us on arrival to show us the facilities and also recommended some local takeaways given that we'd arrived fairly late on Friday evening. Although the owners live on the same estate as the cottage and were on hand should we have needed anything, they were not intrusive and we were left to quiet enjoyment! We were visited by the owners dogs who were absolutely lovely and keen for tummy rubs and lot of fussing. :-) The (electric) hot tub was fabulous and the wood burning stove in the living area was perfect after getting out of the hot tub on a very cold and wet January evening in Durham! Durham town centre was only a 15 minute drive away but if you wanted to avoid the hustle and bustle then the cottage was well situated close to river and a number of walks. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage and will definitely be visiting again. Thank you!

Annual girl's escape
This year we decided to try a self catering cottage and can honestly say that it was the most fantastic place to stay. The owners were kind and helpful, the cottage was well-equipped and beautifully presented and the hot tub was fabulous. Set in beautiful surroundings yet a short drive to the city of Durham. Would definitely recommend this gem.
