Middleton 3 miles; Barnard Castle 12 miles.
The charming and peaceful hamlet of Holwick is situated at the end of a “no-through road” in the heart of beautiful unspoilt Teesdale. There is a pub which serves food and a farm/butcher’s shop and cafe (on the owners’ farm). The surrounding region is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty — a paradise for walkers and lovers of country life. The magnificent waterfall of High Force is within walking distance of the hamlet and the Pennine Way passes close by. There are nearby picturesque villages to explore: Middleton, Mickleton and Romaldkirk, and the ancient market town of Barnard Castle is well worth a visit. All of the Northern Dales are within easy reach and the Lake District is less than an hour’s drive away. Fishing, riding, golf and a variety of watersports are all available locally.

Previous visitors' comments about Shepherd's Cottage:
The cottage more than lives up to the description and the owners are, quite simply, lovely people. I went there to find peace and solitude to write and found inspiration, I can't wait to return!

Cosy and clean. Liked the fact we were away from everyone.
Miss Collins, Kirknewton, July 2012
We enjoyed the peace and quiet and the wonderful scenery.
Mr Habens, Southsea, June 2012
The proximity of the cottage to the Pennine Way was an unexpected bonus. The location of Shepherd's Cottage made it an ideal getaway. The friendliness of our hosts and everyone we met made the entire experience a relaxing and positive experience.
