  • "Cotttage small and cute with 99% of everything supplied including a lovely welcome basket."

    Just missing the ice for a G & T sitting outside in the sunshine. Fortunately the very large and very cold fridge had loads of room so bottles went in fridge easily. Both bed and settee too soft if you have a bad back but otherwise brilliant.

  • "Small but perfectly cosy and well equipped cottage."

    Real attention to detail which makes the place feel welcoming. Spotlessly clean throughout and with a great shower with heated towel rail and under floor heating for cooler days. Middleton in Teesdale is a lovely village, we enjoyed frequenting the local tea shops and Teesdale Hotel. Lots of scenic walks straight from the cottage as well. We would definitely book again.

    It is quite compact, but mostly well laid-out, except for the kitchen area, which is a bit cramped, being partly under the stairs. Overall, cosy, comfortable and in an excellent location. I would certainly stay here again.

  • "Lovely cottage, very pretty and well-equipped."

    Alison, the owner friendly and helpful and I could see the trouble taken to make the cottage homely and tasteful. The hamper left for me was a lovely surprise and made me feel very welcome, it was much appreciated. A Co-op supermarket nearby had all the provisions needed. Peaceful location and well-situated for walking in the North Pennines. Although parking not readily available at the cottage it was easy to park on the main road.

  • "Prior to our arrival communication with the owner was excellent."

    Hush Cottage is at the end of a short terrace just three minutes walk from the centre of lovely Middleton-in-Teesdale. Access to park outside the cottage is 'tight' if you have a large vehicle but with care is possible, however there is plenty of safe parking nearby. The cottage is beautifully furnished and was spotlessly clean. The log burner ensured that we were warm and cosy in spite of the cold temperatures. The bed was very comfortable and the quiet surroundings made for peaceful nights sleep. A generous welcome basket greeted us and we had everything we needed for a super break. Thank you
