  • "We had a fabulous stay at Miner's Cottage."

    Over New Year On arrival we were greeted with a Christmas tree all lit & an open fire ready to light. The cottage is in a quite location in the village with plenty of parking. The cottage is very well equipped & is very clean. It cosey and warm & the beds are extremely confortable. There is nothing to dislike. The cottage is in an excellent location for exploring the surrounding area. Thank you to Holly and Sally Ann for your contact. We would highly recommend the cottage.

    Only slight niggle and that is that the fridge/freezer is a bit small, particularly over the Christmas period.

  • "We've stayed at Miner's Cottage several times and always enjoy it."

    Such a relaxing location but within easy and scenic drives of so many good places to visit. Will be looking to book again for 2023. Comfortable cottage with everything you need. Handy to have the ground floor shower room as well as the upstairs bathroom. Cottage is clean and cosy. Neighbours are friendly and the village is well served by a Co-op food store, newsagents, butchers, hardware and cafes/restaurants. Recommend meals out at The Teesdale Hotel and Foresters, as well as the chippy for a takeaway and the Tees Pot cafe. Good place to go walking. Lots to do in the county as well as over to N Yorkshire, Lake District and Northumberland.

    There are many great and varied circular walks starting in Middleton, whilst Barnard Castle and the Bowes museum are just 20 minutes' drive away. The cottage has all the facilities you need for cooking, washing, and relaxing and is warm and comfortable. A great pleasure is the open fire which throws out a good heat in addition to feeling very homely.

  • "It was our first self catering experience as hotels are still closed and we were dreading it but we were pleasantly surprised."

    The cottage has plenty of character and is recently renovated. It has been cleaned to the high standard. The decor is neutral and tasteful. The bedding is new and of 4*hotel quality. The heating works and temperature is comfortable. The only thing is that windows in the living room and master bedroom do not open for fresh air. It is important during the pandemic to allow air flow so we had to open front door and bathroom windows to allow some air there. The town is beautiful with waterfalls and stunning walks. There are pubs, restaurants where you can eat outside. All accessible by foot. Owner is super friendly and attentive so are the neighbours. We felt welcome everywhere. We would recommend this property.

    Many thanks for your feedback. The window has been checked and it does open and we are here to assist any guest if they have any issues during their stay. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and thank you again for the lovely feedback Property Owner
