  • "What a wonderful experience to stay at the cottage."

    It was a great get-away for the whole family. We hope to return.

  • "Stunning cottage in an amazing part of the country ."

    The cottage is well positioned for exploring the local area, but equally peaceful to soak up the hilltop views. Definitely recommend!

  • "The cottage is beautiful."

    The kitchen could do with some TLC. No extractor fan above the hob caused a lot of condensation to accumulate on units above. This will cause the units to swell and burst. Understand some refurbishment is still underway. Fantastic location, lovely garden, beautiful surroundings.

    Thank you so much for your comments and being such lovely guests. Additional extractor fan advice noted! I've enjoyed reading your notes in the book about the places you've visited. We hope to see you again too :) Property Owner

The property

St John's Chapel 1.2 miles.

Nestled in Weardale near St John’s Chapel, Durham, is this fantastic three-bedroom cottage, Hill View House.

Named after its exceptional views of the rolling hills and enjoying a superb location within the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Hill View House is a fabulous pet-friendly choice for a group or family of six.

The property benefits from two off-road parking spaces, a delightful front patio with bistro table, and a rear garden with lawn, patio, furniture and barbecue, perfect for indulging in a spot of alfresco dining.

On the ground floor, you will find three beautifully-appointed bedrooms, a king-size, a double and a twin, all with breath-taking views of the hills, and served by a sleek bathroom, complete with bath and overhead shower, so you can choose how best to freshen up at the end of the day.

Head downstairs, where you will be welcomed into a spacious open-plan living space, featuring plush sofas, a large TV and a crackling woodburning stove, sure to be your pooches favourite spot, along with a well-equipped kitchen where you can cook up delicious dishes, ready to savour as a family around the dining table for six.

In the morning, why not head through to the conservatory to enjoy your morning coffee as you anticipate the day's adventures.

Explore your surroundings, where you can enjoy leisurely strolls along the River Wear, tour the Weardale Museum and High House Chapel, or embark on outdoor activities ranging from canoeing and rock climbing with Weardale Adventure.

Your local amenities can be found in St John’s Chapel, where you can pick up essentials at the convenience store, dine at The Golden Lion and The Bluebell Inn, or grab a light bite at the Chatterbox Café.

Continue onto Stanhope, where you can make a splash in the pool, hike through the scenic Lanehead Quarry, dine at The Grey Bull, visit the remarkable Stanhope Castle, or visit the Weardale Nature Reserve with hiking and cycling trails, a vintage railway, and a mining museum.

Your home is ideally located for exploring the vast landscapes of the Yorkshire Dales, where you’ll find the stunning Black Force Waterfall in Middleton-in-Teesdale, and the nearby Grassholme Observatory where you can gaze at the stars.

Further afield, you will find Alston, home to the South Tynedale Railway, Angel Inn, Tyne Willows, and Swans Head.

All this and more awaits at Hill View House.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.

About the location


Stanhope 7 miles; Middleton-in-Tees 12 miles; Alston 12.5 miles

This quaint County Durham village sits in Weardale in the heart of the North Pennines AONB, an area known for its excellent bird watching, cycling and walking. As well as two friendly village pubs, one serving food, St John's Chapel offers a Post Office, a shop and a couple of cafés. The nearby market town of Stanhope sits on the fringes of the AONB and offers a wider choice of amenities and an outdoor pool. The magnificent city of Durham is slightly further afield but well worth a visit, laced with tremendous architecture and much to see and do.
