  • "We have had many great holidays with Sykes and the standard of your cottages is always very high."

    Oak Cottage is one of the very best. The fixtures and fittings are all of a very high quality and a lot of thought has gone into providing everything a family will need. Loads of information about local amenities, sights and walks. The visitors' book is very comprehensive. Many thanks to Sean, the owner, for his thoughtful contact and support.

  • "Decided to take a staycation close to home and found this gem in Teesdale."

    The accomodation is spacious and well equipped, if you enjoy cooking the double oven electric range is a dream to cook on. A games room with mini pool was a hit with my daughter. The property is set off the main street but I was struck by how quiet it was. Around the corner is an excellent chippie and two pubs, there is also a coop supermarket in the village and a pizza takeaway. Ideally located for visiting High and Low Force water falls, if you park at low force you can walk 1.5 miles to High Force and avoid the parking and entrance fee at High Force. Further afield Barnard Castle is a 10 mile drive with shops, pubs and a Morrisons. A 1.20 hour drive to Forbidden Corner is a must if you have young children they will be delighted, we also drove over to Lake District for a day out Kendal or Keswick is about a 1.15 drive over the scenic North Pennine national Park. Owners were very communicative and property was cleaned to a high standard, if you are looking for a peaceful holiday in great accomodation you have found it.

  • "Oak Cottage is a great place to return to after a day of exploring and walking."

    It has the most spacious and best equipped kitchen of any cottage we've ever stayed in. We spent many of our evenings either sat around the dining table playing games or playing pool/table football/air hockey in the games room rather than watching TV in the comfy living room.. Sean, the owner, took the time to get in touch at the start of our stay to make sure everything was ok, which was appreciated. Definitely worth another visit.

  • "You know when you see those adverts that feature enormous kitchens with happy families and you're thinking: no-one has a kitchen that big."

    (You're ignoring the family.) Well, Oak Cottage does. It is enormous, wonderful, filled with glasses of every shape and size, plus all the kitchen gadgets you need. It's fabulous. And that's just the start because all the rooms are great and perfect. Middleton-in-Teesdale is a very special place to visit and Oak Cottage is an equally special place to stay. Enjoy.

  • "We stay at dog friendly accommodation regularly and there’s normally something which has been overlooked, not maintained or just uncared for, meaning that by the end of our stay we’re ready to go home."

    That wasn’t the case here, everything has been well thought out and all very comfortable, I’d happily have stayed another week. I thought staying in a cottage without a garden might be an issue with a dog, but it just gave us an excuse to try many of the wonderful local walks. A lovely cottage in a fabulous location.

The local people we met were also very friendly. We never got to use the snug or games room mainly because we were out most of the time but they look like a great addition to the property.

  • "Oak cottage is absolutely stunning, one of the nicest we have stayed in, and we have stayed in many."

    The owners have thought of everything to make your holiday "home from home" The cleanliness of the cottage was exceptional particularly in the current climate which is so important, so don't worry about anything as it was spotless. The quality of the crockery and cutlery are 1st class, and the kitchen is well equipped with plenty of everything. The beds are super comfy with lovely duvets and pillows. Two beautiful Bathrooms and a bonus down stairs loo, A gorgeous log burner in the lounge made our evenings so cosy after a full day out. The cottage has excellent heating so we never felt cold. There is a gorgeous snug area up a quirky staircase which we enjoyed sitting in having a glass of wine and a quiet read, and a little games room adjoining the snug, which we didn't use but great if you have children. The cottage is in a village setting, which boasts takeaways, a butcher, chemist a bank and two pubs plus other shops and cafes, literally all on your doorstep. Plenty of walks along side the river, or further afield if you want to drive. The owner is so helpful and only a call or text if you need anything, which we didn't. The only thing to be mindful of is the front "garden" area as its open to the road with no fencing, so be vigilant with small children or your dog as the resident neighbours do drive fast up and down the lane. I would recommend Oak cottage to everyone, it ticked all our boxes to make our post Christmas break the best, so if your thinking of booking it just do it, you won't be disappointed I promise you.

    The cottage is beautifully presented with comfortable furnishings and the best equipped kitchen we've ever come across in all our years of staying in cottages. The owner, Sean, is always just a phone call or text away if there are any issues and also to provide information on the best pubs and places to eat locally. The cottage location is absolutely perfect. Set in the heart of the village the pubs, cafes and shops are all just a couple of minutes walk away and for the more adventurous the Tees Valley is on the doorstep providing some wonderful walks and the best scenery you will ever see. We are already looking at booking a 3rd stay.

  • "The cottage on the whole was lovely."

    However there were small issues that need addressing. The windows need cleaning inside and out. The whole cottage needs either a deep clean or preferably a coat of paint, the walls and paintwork are badly scuffed and marked. These points however do not detract from the point that this is a lovely cottage in an outstanding area, just a few minutes walk from the centre of the village.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. We get a lot of repeat visitors which demonstrates how popular the cottage is. Regarding the comment on the paintwork, it is always challenging when the cottage is so popular to paint regularly and we want to keep the nice crisp and pale bright colours. That said we get in at least twice a year to do this and since your stay, the painting has been done once more. The window cleaner also visits twice a month - although clearly in a leafy waterside location the windows do get dirty depending on the weather. Thank you again for your valuable feedback.

The cottage is lovely and warm and the beds are sumptuous! There are some fantastic riverside walks right on the doorstep which was a real bonus as our pet Spaniel was never out of the water. The town itself leaves you wanting for nothing and pretty much everywhere is dog-friendly too, which is brilliant. We spent a good amount of time in the bar of the Teesdale Hotel which is just across the road and has really good, hearty food, great beer and a roaring fire. The local co-op has everything you might want too and even the local garage saved the day. We had car trouble and he was able to sort it out within 24 hours, despite having to order a part. Back to the cottage and the owner, Sean, was on the case - contacting us on arrival and, also, a couple of times during our stay to check that all was OK and to offer advice and tips about the local amenities. We really had a fantastic break and I can't recommend this cottage highly enough to anyone looking to visit this breathtaking area. Thank you

  • "We had a wonderful holiday in the Yorkshire Dales and surrounding areas."

    The cottage was lovely - exactly what we expected from the description. The setting is very quiet and despite being in the village (which is also very pretty) has a remote and rural feel due to the view out of the main windows onto the beck and the fields. The kids loved watching the rabbits playing on the slope opposite! It is also very convenient for some great but perhaps not that well known easy walks - High and Low Force waterfalls, Cauldron Snout and some nice treks down dismantled railways. It's also right on the Pennine Way. Barnard Castle, Eggleston Abbey, Richmond and other historic sites are within about 30 - 40 mins of driving down lovely country roads. Middleton-in-Teesdale itself is a very nice little village with some nice friendly places to eat and drink. The facilities were excellent and the house was comfortable and warm, with strong electric radiators and underfloor heating downstairs and in the bathroom. Everything is new and looks modern and clean. If there would be one improvement I'd suggest addition of a dryer. For people staying an entire week, it's often necessary to do a wash midweek and in winter or early sprint/late autumn it can be hard to dry clothes on a rack, especially as the radiators shouldn't be used for drying clothes. But if you have a short stay or can bring all of the clothes you need it's really not a problem and is only a minor thing.

High Force and Low force are worth a visit and Durham is about 50 mins away. All in all a fantastic holiday cottage in a beautiful setting, you won't be short on things to do. Thanks also for allowing dogs, ours loved it, we would highly recommend and like to return.

  • "The pictures of oak cottage don’t show it’s full potential."

    The cottage is beautiful and the attention to detail is second to none. Our family who came throughout the week all agreed that it exceeded all expectations. The host are very welcoming and are to hand if needed however, we had no issues during our stay. The area is dog friendly and the views on the walks are something else. We really enjoyed our family stay and will most certainly be booking again.

  • "What is not to like about this cottage?"

    Probably the best we have ever stayed in for size, comfort and provision of everything needed. I love to cook, so was very pleased with the kitchen and all the accessories. We loved the little room next to the games room for reading. We have already booked for next January, but hope to come again this year also. Absolutely excellent, no faults to find. Also, the owner was very approachable and helpful. Thankyou. Ann and Derek Downe

  • "Overall Oak cottage was fabulously located and equipped for your every need."

    We had one factor that was unfortunate that when we arrived it was apparent that the cottage hadn’t been properly cleaned. There were bins not emptied, the grill pan left un washed from the previous occupants, hoover left out on the landing, dirty towels under the bed, to name but a few. This was dealt with immediately by the owner who told us that it wasn’t their usual cleaner. It was just a shame. The cottage is beautiful throughout and there’s nothing I could recommend other than not to rely on that particular cleaner again! We had a wonderful New Year and the villagers were very friendly and hospitable. The Crown at Mickleton was amazing. We would certainly love to return!

    Thank you for your comments and acknowledging that we acted very quickly to sort this issue out. We are very pleased that it did not spoil your enjoyment of the holiday and that you would love to come back and stay again. This cleaner was used as a one off as our usual housekeeper was away. We will certainly not be using that cleaner again and should the housekeeper ever need to be away again, we will clean the property ourselves to ensure the high standards we and our customers expect are maintained. We take great pride in the quality of feedback we have received since we started letting the cottage and look forward to welcoming you again. Property Owner

I cannot recommend this location and cottage enough and we will certainly be back.

    Outside the property is a small seating area to the front and ample parking for three cars. The property is impeccably clean and is nicely furnished. The beds and bedding are of good quality and the towels are large and very soft. The owners appear to have thought about absolutely every scenario and sought to provide just about everything you could possibly need for a fabulous Holiday. We would not hesitate to book this property again.
