  • "The cottage was excellent, In addition we especially liked Middleton as the location, a lovely working village with everything you would need only minutes away and relaxing walks, just right for restful break."

    P.S. stairs rather steep for the elderly.

    Alison and Richard were excellent hosts , and the cottage is exactly as advertised, comfortable, clean and cosy . The welcome pack was more than generous, and the log burner and all other facilities were excellent. We had a lovely few days , with plenty of walks and pub meals etc. Highly recommended.

    Beautifully modernised. Excellent facilities. Warm and cosy atmosphere. Everything you need for a mini, short or longer stay. Easy walking distance from local village facilities. A ‘Welcome Pack’ to beat all others. All backed up by wonderful countryside.

  • "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

    We really enjoyed the style of the cottage, the lovely fire and the fact that it was so quite yet in the middle of a thriving village. We would love to stay again.

  • "The property owner is easy to communicate with, offering tips and advise for finding the property and it’s surrounding area."

    The Property is too a very high standard and exceedingly clean. The owners seem to have thought of everything and also provide an explicit handbook. The cottage is well placed for the village and despite parking in the adjoining street it wasn’t an issue. Our welcome pack exceeded all expectations. The bed is so comfy and lovely soft pillows. On the right night you can lie in bed and see the stars if you open the blind on the velux window. We will certainly book again.

    Middleton in Teesdale is as good or better than the very best of the more popular Yorkshire dales, and the people are so friendly.
