The property

Resting peacefully on the edge of the charming town of Middleton-in-Teesdale, is the wonderful property Heatherbrae.

Formerly a popular hotel, this well-appointed accommodation provides a fabulous space for large groups of family and friends to join together and celebrate in style.

Be greeted into an airy hallway, where you can place down your bags and take off your coats before kicking off your mud-splattered boots and making yourself feel right at home.

Wander into the peaceful snug, curling up on one of the traditional leather armchairs as you lose yourself in an enthralling book from the shelf, or gather with friends in the games room for some friendly competition playing pool.

Lounge on one of the many plush sofas located in the living room as you watch the pretty flames roar from the open fire and catch-up with your nearest and dearest whilst music plays from the Smart TV.

Grab a bottle of wine from the drinks fridge located within the pantry and take a seat at the dining table to map out your plans for the coming days, as the chef of the group takes to the striking oak farmhouse kitchen and prepares a mouth-watering three course dinner with the help of the impressive stainless steel range cooker.

Continue the evening out in the garden with a dip in the hot tub, admiring the outstanding views of the rolling countryside as the sun begins to set on yet another wonderful day in the Pennines.

Head back inside to the warmth of the cottage where you can freshen up in the ground-floor cloakroom or put on a quick load of washing in the well-placed utility room.

When you begin to feel yourself tire, pick yourself up and carry yourself off to one of the many bedrooms available.

With a total of ten bedrooms set over two floors, there is something to suit everyone in this grand holiday home.

Choose to stay in one of the luxurious super-king-size or king-size bedrooms boasting their very own en-suites where you can indulge in a rejuvenating shower or relaxing soak in the bath, depending on the set-up.

Guests have the option to stay in the spacious family bedroom, complete with both a super-king-size bed, two singles and the benefit of a tranquil en-quite bathroom featuring both a bath and a separate walk-in shower.

Discover an old housekeeper's lodge located on the second floor, home to a king-size bedroom, a double and a twin, as well as a chic bathroom and additional cloakroom and a staircase leading down to a private living space.

Prepare a hearty breakfast in the housekeeper’s kitchen with the help of the handy electric oven and hob, before heading through to the snug living area and making yourself comfortable on the sofas by the warmth of the woodburning stove as you catch a movie on the Smart TV.

Show off your tennis skills with a quick match out on the courts before grabbing your bikes from the storage area and heading out on a peaceful cycle.

Ideally positioned within the fantastic Teesdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there is so much for guests to see and do within the area.

Hop in the car and head for the nearby town of Barnard Castle where you will find an enchanting castle, impressive art galleries and the striking ruins of Egglestone Abbey.

Spend your days on scenic hikes through the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or enjoy a relaxing stroll along the Tees Valley Railway Walk, before exploring Summerhill Force and Gibson's Cave.

Book a stay at Heatherbrae for an unforgettable group holiday to the fantastic Middleton-in-Teesdale.
