  • "Chris and Sue were very informative on arrival, advised about local area and things to do."

    Along with the stay, such as hottub instructions and recycling. The place was very clean and welcoming. Warm with heaters on ready for our arrival which added a nice touch. The views from the window in the morning and the hot tub. Just amazing! Could not fault this stay and would recommend to all. The village pub food was good and pleasant. The castles and walks added bonus around the area. Plus the waterfalls. Overall an amazing stay and hope to return. Thank you

    Thank you for the great feedback. It was a pleasure meeting you both and thank you for leaving the cabin so neat and tidy on your departure. I hope you had a good journey home. Maybe see you again sometime. Property Owner

  • "Great stay, lodge was spotless on arrival and well equipped."

    Welcome was friendly and helpful. Lovely views out over the hills from the living room and the hot tub! Pub in the village (Ancient Unicorn) was good for a drink and a 10-15 minute drive (or £15 taxi) to Barnard Castle. Good walking options from the lodge/village.

    Glad you enjoyed your stay in Pheasant, thanks for the feedback. Property Owner

    Had a great stay very quiet Could do with a recycling box at property so it's easier to recycle at the bins I think for two people it's great for the seating but for four people could of done with another sofa or two armchairs for comfort The hosts was very friendly and there to help this is a great property to just chill and relax and that's what we went for

    Thank you for the feedback, points noted. 95% of the bookings are for two and we are going to change the occupancy level. As for a recycling box this is something we are going to add. Property Owner

    Thank you for your feedback. The hot tub is water is changed after each stay. You came to stay in a log cabin with a hot tub not a hot tub with a cabin so your calculations are a bit off. I prefer to have the water changed and clean and this takes time to heat. Property Owner

    The lodge was very clean, comfortable and peaceful with everything we needed for our stay. Views from the lodge are beautiful and some lovely walks nearby including part of the Pennine Way. Also, a good base for visiting a variety of places. It wasn't a problem to us but the Sykes listing states a shop nearby, but this is not the case as the shop and post office have closed down. There is a Morrisons and a Co-op in Castle Barnard just 4 miles away.

Bowes also has a significant connection with Charles Dickens and Dotheboys Hall in the heart of the village is believed to have been the inspiration for Nicholas Nickleby. Nearby is the market town of Barnard Castle, whose medieval ruins still tower over the river and are well worth a visit.
