    “Nice cottage, great location when campsite near by is closed.”

    After booking and paying in full were surprised to be informed we had to take our own towels ,when bed linen was provided.

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.
