Nestling by the banks of the River Tees is the pretty Pennine village of Middleton-in-Teesdale which lies in the heart of Teesdale, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village offers a good range of shops, pubs and places to eat. This is superb walking country with high open moorland as well as pretty wooded valleys and the nearby waterfalls of High Force, Gibson's Cave and Cauldron Snout are amongst the most spectacular sights in the district. The nearby market town of Barnard Castle offers a full range of facilities.
