    “Perfect peace at beautiful Owl Cottage”

    We spent 3 nights in Owl Cottage in the amazing Durham Dales. From the moment we set foot in the cottage we were immediately relaxed as this little place has such a feeling of calm about it. The cottage is petite with one room downstairs which hosts the most well planned kitchen area which is fully stocked with all equipment you could possibly need, and a fabulous lounge dining area.

    We spent 3 nights in Owl Cottage in the amazing Durham Dales. From the moment we set foot in the cottage we were immediately relaxed as this little place has such a feeling of calm about it. The cottage is petite with one room downstairs which hosts the most well planned kitchen area which is fully stocked with all equipment you could possibly need, and a fabulous lounge dining area. All tastefully furnished and spotlessly clean. The icing on the cake is the wood burning stove which was crackling away on our arrival and heats the whole house. Perfect to sit beside and relax . There is a utility outside and wood and coal store all fully stocked. Upstairs a big bedroom it’s a very comfy king sized bed and cast iron fire place with decorative twinkling fairy lights which were beautiful! A lovely bathroom with bath and shower over and soft fluffy towels. The owners have clearly gone to a lot of trouble preparing this cottage to cater for guests to a high standard and kept the era and history of the cottage in mind throughout. The weather wasn’t great but this did not matter one bit as we spent our time in the peaceful cottage relaxing and when the weather was a little better we enjoyed the forest walks just opposite the cottage with beautiful scenery and rivers and waterfalls. The walkways are all tarmac so your boots hardly get dirty.We popped into the village to the well stocked coop and this was only a 5 minute walk. Very attractive place. We recommend the village pizza shop who deliver and the pizzas were the best. Claire the owner kindly went out of her way to supply a birthday cake and balloon as requested for a special birthday, and even kindly left a bottle of bubbly for us to enjoy. She was quick to answer any questions we had and also provides lots of information about places to go in neat folders in the cottage. There’s even a little welcome dog basket on the stairs with towels and paw wipes which came in handy with a mucky little dog on return from walking. If you are looking for a restful break then we cannot recommend Owl Cottage enough. We think it should be named Peace Cottage really as that’s exactly how it made us feel!!! We will be returning in the summer to enjoy the area in better weather, and meanwhile will enjoy the happy memories that this holiday cottage created for us. Big thanks to Claire and her husband. You do the most amazing job!!!!
