  • "We spent a week there in May."

    Lovely cottage, in great location. Well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds. Very quiet. We enjoyed the walking, visiting Hadrian's Wall, Hexham and City of Durham and eating in local, recommended pubs and restaurants. The owner was extremely helpful finding out for us a great place to park in Sunderland for a concert at the Stadium of Light. It was much appreciated and made a big difference to our visit.

  • "The cottage lacked nothing that we needed."

    I stayed with my 2 sons and son in law and we all enjoyed the slight quirkiness of the layout of the interior. We couldn't have wished for better.

    The property is beautifully situated with stunning views from every window. The cottage is tastefully furnished with very high quality bedding.The kitchen is extremely well appointed , and the addition of an ALEXA and NETFLIX capability on the TV was an added bonus. The sitting room is so comfortable with a very efficient wood burner. Highly recommended and thank you Liz forthe goodies when we arrived!!

    The views from the huge kitchen/dining room window are stunning and the upside down layout really emphasises the glorious countryside location. Would highly recommend and would love to go back!

  • "It's a lovely location with a view directly over moorland in one direction and towards the reservoir in the other direction."

    There's two pubs nearby. We cycled to the hotel at Blanchland on one of the days. Overall we had a very pleasant stay. Great to be supplied with logs and coal for the whole week. The house was warm and in generally good condition. One minor disappointment was that the bath isn't full size.

The property

Blanchland 4.4 miles.

Hepple Hill Cottage is a delightful holiday home sitting in a stunning location on the outskirts of Edmundbyers, a charming village near Blanchland, County Durham.

Boasting off-road parking for three cars, first-floor living areas, and a superb position within the magnificent North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this unique property suits a range of guests – a family or a group of six seeking a refreshing escape to the northern countryside – or a couple looking for a cosy, romantic hideaway.

Park up outside your new home-from-home, taking a moment to breathe in your tranquil new surroundings.

Hear the birds sing and watch the sheep graze before you head indoors to discover a range of tastefully presented living spaces, comprised of a fully-equipped kitchen/diner where you and your loved ones can prepare and savour delicious home-cooked meals, and a sitting space kept warm by an elegant woodburning stove.

This property also offers a home office space for those needing to work on holiday.

For alfresco dining, a rear patio garden with picnic bench offers brilliant views of the surrounding moors and serves as an idyllic spot for summer dinners.

An enclosed front garden is an ideal spot for morning coffee and offers picturesque views of farmland reaching all the way to the horizon.

When the sun sets, be sure to refresh with a revitalising shower or bath, before you finally settle down to catch your precious sleep in one of the three characterful bedrooms, including a double with accompanying en-suite.

If you can tear yourself from your peaceful new dwelling, head out to explore what your local area has in store.

A brief walk into the village of Edmundbyers will bring you to The Derwent Arms, where you can begin the day with a hearty pub brunch, as well as The Baa, which is also a youth hostel that has a bar area and is extremely popular with locals and farmers alike.

Continuing on foot, head to the Pow Hill Country Park to delight with a walk in nature, taking in views of the glistening Derwent Reservoir before you sit down to enjoy mid-afternoon picnic at the Pow Hill Picnic Site.

Further afield, a short drive will take you to neighbouring Blanchland, set on the river Derwent, where you can stock up on essentials at the post office or even treat your loved ones to a meal at White Monk Refectory & Tearoom or the historic Lord Crewe Arms if you fancy a break from cooking one evening.For a full day out Hepple Hill Cottage is perfectly placed to discover the numerous wonders and attractions of the North Pennines AONB and the Northumberland’s Tyne Valley whether that is a trip to the Killhope Lead Mining Museum in Durham’s best kept secret – Weardale –or snapping photos of the awe-inspiring High Force waterfall in Upper Teesdale.

The ancient market towns of Corbridge and Hexham are a short drive away and the wonders of Hadrian’s Wall are in easy reach.

Whatever you do during your next stay in County Durham, do it from Hepple Hill Cottage.
