The overall ambience of the cottage was so cosy. The owners had thought of almost everything. We tried to find an 'owl' teapot on our travels but unsuccessful! Our first visit to Middleton on Tees, the surrounding area and Owl Cottage will certainly not be our last.

Mr Fox, Lincoln, January 2014

The scenery was breathtaking

Miss Woodward, Crewe, December 2013

The cottage was lovely, it was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed plus a lot of extras. The bed was fantastic, so comfortable. The décor was bright and tasteful, and the stove was a definite plus to the cottage. In addition to this the location was great. The village was a couple of minutes walk away, with some good pubs and very friendly people. The owners were great.

Mr Darbyshire, Wigan, November 2013

Cottage was very cosy and warm, with a lovely wood fire. Able to walk into village, which was nice in the evenings, to have a meal & drink. Had some really nice drives out.

Mrs Igoe, Sale, October 2013
