About the location


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.

Gorgeous and unique cottage in a beautiful area, fantastic pub on the doorstep. This was our 5th visit and we look forward to the 6th!

Mrs Andrews, Aylesford, February 2014

Our third visit to this cottage, and we just love it, especially the location and privacy. Low Force is only 20 minutes walk, and the perfect place to watch the brave salmon leaping up the falls in October. Great place to chill out.

Miss Foulger, Grimsby, October 2013

Perfect place to escape, great for walking and relaxing.

Mr Taylor, Wells-next-the-Sea, September 2013

Beautiful outlook, friendly and helpful owners, great walks and a lovely stay.

Ms Foster, Louth, July 2013
