    • “Fabulous gem of a cottage”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “This is one of the best holidays we have had in England. We stayed here in September 2014 along with our two dogs-the cottage is welcoming, superbly furnished and in a perfect location. We could not find fault with it at all, every little detail had been catered for. There are some fabulous walks to be found locally, we also spent a very enjoyable day at the sea side in Saltburn, which was an easy drive away.Would recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing break with a touch of luxury, and we most certainly will be returning--didn't want to leave!”

    • “A wee gem!!”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Wonderful feeling when you walk through the door, furnishings to die for. Great having a conservatory. Both wee westies loved it. Lovely English green, a quiet village, just whats need for a relaxing weeks holiday. A 2 minute walk to get a newspaper, fresh eggs. One pub being renovated when we were there, and right in village, pub over bridge ok. Because of westies we use cottages at least 2 per year. In 15 years I'd say it was the best one, although not necessary the best village. We laughed as next door was a no longer used chapel, hubby is a minister!!!!!. Definately would return.”

    • “Excellent cottage”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We travel in the uk 4 times per year with our dogs. This cottage was a home away from home with all the facilities we require. Locally the walks and Roman history is amazing. The fox hole is a great eaterie and the organic farm is a great place to stock up on quality organic provisions. We loved our visit and the cottage offered us a safe, cozy haven from the winters storms. It offered good value money and a good place to forge new memories”

    • “The cottage was perfect. Had the most comfy beds I've ever had in a rental and lovely owners who were very helpful and considerate. Had a high standard of décor/furnishings throughout and a beautiful garden. Very peaceful. We would love to go back.”

    Mrs Ramsay, Newton Aycliffe, April 2015

    • “"The cottage was in a peaceful location and was comfortable and well equipped."”

    Mrs Shroeder, Radstock, April 2015

    • “This is a lovely cottage in a very nice area, with dog walks from the door. Thought has gone into making the cottage very comfortable, with very tasteful furnishings and well-equipped kitchens and bathrooms. The front garden is particularly pretty, with the addition of a well-stocked bird table meaning that there was an abundance of wildlife, including a rabbit one morning. The cottage is not far from the Durham Dales and the village has two good pubs and a shop.”

    Mrs Furmston, Ipswich, February 2015

    Mrs Wildman, Bedford, September 2014

    • “The cottage was presented in a wonderful way; it was cosy, luxurious and very welcoming. There was plenty of room to sit and relax in private at the rear whilst the front garden provided a retreat during the evening and for a late night drink. The finish of the fixtures and fittings throughout was of the highest standard, it far exceeded our expectations. We would not hesitate to recommend this cottage to family and friends,and would book again.”

The village is renowned for its Roman heritage, which dates back to around 70 AD. The Piercebridge Roman Fort Site, a recognised ancient monument, forms part of the region’s Dere Street Roman Trail, a celebration of the rich Roman heritage still to be enjoyed in the area. Forming part of the Teesdale Way, and within easy reach of the Cleveland Way, this walker’s paradise provides an excellent base from which walkers and cyclists can explore this delightful Dales area including nearby Swaledale and Weardale, with many bridleways, footpaths, cycle trails and lovely riverside walks available.
