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.

Previous visitors' comments about West House:
We love this cottage and the area. The owner is very welcoming and it is good to be able to walk into the village and also to walk into the countryside. It is a beautiful part of England.
Mrs Hartley, Reigate, May 2013
The cottage, view and location were spot on, with many areas to walk and explore without having to travel too far both for short strolls or longer hikes. The village had every facility we required.
Mrs Short, Middlesbrough, April 2013
The view from the windows and all round the property. The location being close enough to the village to walk comfortably but far enough to have no traffic. West House is so very comfortable and felt like home. The owner was very helpful, available and approachable.
Miss Lowrie, Newcastle upon Tyne, February 2013
Good standard of property. Everything was clean and nice interior decor. Good location on edge of town with lovely views. Helpful owner.
