Welcome to the Durham Dales in the North Pennines AONB and, in particular, Teesdale, naturally blessed with wild, open moorland and dense, wooded valleys.
Such splendid scenery encourages all kinds of outdoor pursuits, from cycling along the C2C Route and exhilarating cross-country hacks, to water sports and wonderful walks along numerous trails. Make your base a Middleton-in-Teesdale cottage and you're right on the Pennine Way. This charming market town is more like a big village, framed by the Pennine Fells and nestling beside the River Tees. Enjoy its delightfully old-fashioned and very relaxing atmosphere. Amenities on offer include a fantastic visitor centre, tearooms, pubs and a small selection of shops. One of Middleton's prime attractions is High Force Waterfall - England's largest single-drop waterfall - and there's a lovely walk that's popular with families.
Barnard Castle is a delight to explore, with its attractive architecture, antique shops and riverside walks. Make time to explore its ancient castle ruins, protected by English Heritage.
Next stop - and possibly Teesdale's crowning jewel - the Bowes Museum, built in the style of a French château and housing extraordinary collections of art. Other historic gems include the 14th Century Raby Castle and Rokeby Hall and Park on the banks of the Tees.
Cromwell, Dickens and Sir Walter Scott - famous faces associated with this glorious region. Isn't it time you booked a Teesdale cottage and discovered why they so loved this special corner of North East England?
