    “Fabulous, relaxing Hideaway”
    A fantastic cottage on the banks of the Hury reservoir. The cottage is lovely, clean and warm, very comfortable and equipped to a high standard with everything you could possibly want. They have tea bags and coffee with fresh milk in the fridge and a packet of shortbread caramel biscuits for us and doggy treats for the dog. There was tin foil, cling film, washing up liquid, dishwashing tabs, doggy bags, even a towel for the dog, everything you'll need! ...
    A fantastic cottage on the banks of the Hury reservoir. The cottage is lovely, clean and warm, very comfortable and equipped to a high standard with everything you could possibly want. They have tea bags and coffee with fresh milk in the fridge and a packet of shortbread caramel biscuits for us and doggy treats for the dog. There was tin foil, cling film, washing up liquid, dishwashing tabs, doggy bags, even a towel for the dog, everything you'll need! The cottage is remote situated 3 miles over the Moors, but has good roads to reach it if you follow the directions given by the owners. The nearest shop is 4 miles away which is a post office, so only open throughout the day and the nearest town Barnard Castle which is 10 miles away, so make sure you take the food you need for the first days. The scenery is stunning with far reaching views across the reservoir and surrounding Pennines. The garden is fully enclosed for dogs with a wire fence and chicken wire around the bottom, but if you have small dogs they maybe able to get through a small area of fencing that didn't have chicken wire on at the side of the cottage. You can walk around the reservoir 3.5 miles, but there isn't a proper path way to get to it, so not good for less able visitors and I found that there isn't anywhere you can walk the dogs for a short toilet break as the cottage is down a short lane and then your onto the road and sheep in the field outside the cottage. The owners were lovely and nothing would be too much trouble. I would definitely recommend and will look forward to a return visit.

About the location

BALDERSDALE

Barnard Castle 10 miles.

A dale branching off Teesdale, Baldersdale is made up of a small cluster of hamlets and farm dwellings overlooking the reservoirs of Hury, Blackton and Balderhead. Baldersdale came to fame as the home of Hannah Hauxwell, who featured on television in the 1970s for single-handedly running her farm from her home, which had no running water. 'Hannah's Meadow' is now managed by Durham Wildlife Trust as a nature reserve. The village of Romaldkirk is nearby, one of the most unspoilt villages in Teesdale, with pretty greens, old stone cottages, a beautiful old church and two pubs, one of which won AA Pub of the Year for England in 2003 and serves excellent restaurant and bar meals. The area is surrounded by breathtaking Dales countryside and makes an ideal base for walking and touring throughout North Yorkshire and the Yorkshire Dales, with superb fell, flat and river walks and cycle rides available from the doorstep. The northern Lakes and the cities of Durham and Newcastle are all within easy driving distance, whilst the ancient market town of Barnard Castle, with its many historical and cultural attractions, is just a 15 minute drive away.
