Woodhill was a lovely property. Met the owner when we arrived and she was very friendly and welcoming. The property was central to visiting Barnard Castle, High Force and of course the local pub.

The accommodation was superb value exceeding all expectations and a special mention for the owner, a really lovely person. The gardens were amazing with an abundance of wild life.

Mrs Fowler, Blackburn, November 2013

Simply the best holiday home we have ever been to. Wonderful location, peaceful and quiet, beautiful gardens, fantastic bungalow which is light, clean, well equipped, spacious, in fact 100% on all levels. Might have to keep it a secret so we can get booked again !!
