    “Perfect for a relaxing break”

    The descriptions do not do this house justice. The attention to detail is excellent and the house was equipped with everything we needed including all those things you often have to go out to buy. ...

    The descriptions do not do this house justice. The attention to detail is excellent and the house was equipped with everything we needed including all those things you often have to go out to buy. The setting is wonderful and there are so many lovely touches which made our stay fabulous, but I don't want to spoil the surprise by mentioning them all. The hot tub is great and it was amazing to sit in it in the evening and watch the stars whilst drinking the prosecco our hosts thoughtfully provided. We even managed to summon the energy to use the tennis court. It was lovely to get up in the morning and watch all the birds and other wildlife from the decking. Our hosts were very helpful and were able to suggest some fantastic places to eat and to visit. We will definitely try to return here very soon

The property

Middleton-in-Teesdale 1 mile.

An outstanding, three-storey wing of a magnificent country house set in two acres of grounds on the edge of the small hamlet of Snaisgill, and one mile from Middleton-in-Teesdale.

This beautiful cottage is full of character, having been skilfully converted by the current owners to produce a first-class country hideaway.

With spectacular views in every direction, a luxurious hot tub, a private tennis court and fabulous walks from the doorstep, this is a perfect opportunity to get away from it all and enjoy a week in the great outdoors and treat oneself to those well deserved luxuries.

The cottage features a first floor living area with a stylish sitting room with a cosy woodburning stove, and is a great place to sit and relax and take in the long distance views afforded by this elevated position.

The adjoining dining room and kitchen provide excellent self-catering facilities and there is a useful utility area on the ground floor, which provides a good boot and equipment store.

The three second floor bedrooms provide excellent flexibility with a luxurious super king-size bed, a delightful king-size double and a twin bedroom all served by a pretty bathroom and a separate cloakroom.

Stylish throughout, the property boasts those little extras that all seamlessly combine to ensure that guests have a memorable holiday.

The hot tub is positioned to take advantage of the spectacular views and thus is a great spot to sit after a long demanding walk or a couple of sets on the tennis court.

Surrounded by the wonderful Teesdale, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the area is covered in walking trails and there are good cycling opportunities throughout the area on quiet, unspoilt country lanes.

Middleton-in-Teesdale is a short drive, with many local pubs, tea rooms and restaurants to choose from.

The nearby market town of Barnard Castle, with its cobbled streets and quaint lanes, attracts visitors all year round, while the Northern Dales are waiting to be discovered slightly further afield.

Visit medieval Raby Castle with its deer park, The Bowes Museum, High Force Waterfall and Eggleston Hall.

An elegant holiday home with that something extra!
