    “We have visited this cottage since 2012 and we still love to come to stay.”

    The owners the Scott family are always so friendly and pleased to meet you. We have booked Sunday lunch in the farmhouse kitchen every time and love the home cooked food. If you have a hectic and stress full job or home life then this is the place to come. No WI-FI and phone signal is at best minimal, however let people know you are off the grid and get away from everything. Forget the weather, rain or shine get out along the Pennine way as the scenery is stunning the further you go. We love ...

    The owners the Scott family are always so friendly and pleased to meet you. We have booked Sunday lunch in the farmhouse kitchen every time and love the home cooked food. If you have a hectic and stress full job or home life then this is the place to come. No WI-FI and phone signal is at best minimal, however let people know you are off the grid and get away from everything. Forget the weather, rain or shine get out along the Pennine way as the scenery is stunning the further you go. We love the area - Visit low and High force and the Bow lees centre for light lunch and Strathmore Arms pub for good ciders and beer and good pub grub. To sit outside the cottage patio and see the 180 degree view is fantastic if you love the outdoors Don't expect 5* accommodation as its not advertised as such but it does exactly what it says on the tin. Incidentally we have stayed in 5* accommodation yet still come back every year. I could say it was a rubbish holiday in the hope we could more easily book but that would be an injustice.

The property

A wonderful stone-built detached cottage, situated in the middle of a field on the owners' working farm in the small Teesdale hamlet of Holwick.

The cottage, which is approached by a farm lane, has been skilfully created from an old stone barn and has upside down accommodation to take advantage of the lovely views.

The River Tees runs by the bottom of the field.

Comfortably decorated and furnished, this delightful barn offers superb holiday accommodation at any time of the year.

About the location

HOLWICK

Middleton 3 miles; Barnard Castle 12 miles.

The charming and peaceful hamlet of Holwick is situated at the end of a “no-through road” in the heart of beautiful unspoilt Teesdale. There is a pub which serves food and a farm/butcher’s shop and cafe (on the owners’ farm). The surrounding region is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty — a paradise for walkers and lovers of country life. The magnificent waterfall of High Force is within walking distance of the hamlet and the Pennine Way passes close by. There are nearby picturesque villages to explore: Middleton, Mickleton and Romaldkirk, and the ancient market town of Barnard Castle is well worth a visit. All of the Northern Dales are within easy reach and the Lake District is less than an hour’s drive away. Fishing, riding, golf and a variety of watersports are all available locally.
