    “The location, layout, character and views were even better than expected!”


    Particularly loved the walks; literally from the doorstep and the garden, stream, Moor and rescue sheep all just a few steps from the back door. Lovely and cosy inside and lots of books to read; learnt a lot about the local industrial, ecological and social history of the area c/o of local people, very friendly neighbours and the books, maps and DVD's in the cottage. Particularly suited for people who like walking longer distances without seeing many people; you can easily walk for hours from the doorstep, taking in bleak moreland, beautiful hidden streams, waterfalls, woodlands and of course further afield, Hadrian's Wall. Will be back! Kim and Fergus
