    “Absolutely lovely property.”

    What was not apparent from the Sykes listing was the sheer beauty of the location, hidden in a steep wooded valley providing wonderful walks. The property was wonderfully prepared for our arrival with tea, milk, biscuits and wine to make sure our first night was catered for. Kitchen had all that was needed, lovely sized bedroom, sometime properties squeeze a double bed in a room that is too small, not here. Bathroom was fantastic. Definitely recommended.

The property

Barnard Castle 6.2 miles.

Settled on the outskirts of the small village of Copley which lies around six miles north of Barnard Castle, is this contemporary single-storey cottage, Leadmill Piggery.

A modern, romantic retreat for two, Leadmill Piggery offers attractive interiors and is within easy reach of the North Pennines AONB and the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Be welcomed into the open-plan living space, fitted with floor-to-ceiling windows to illuminate the space with natural light, with soft seating to unwind on before the TV after a long day.

Cook up a storm in the fitted grey kitchen, hosting an electric oven and hob, fridge and microwave, with a dining area for intimate meals for two.

Continue through to the king-size bedroom when the night draws in, offering plenty of storage and more attractive interiors, leading to the spacious en-suite bathroom where you can freshen up with a shower or a long soak.

Sit out on the front patio next to the neat vegetable patches, with outdoor seating for alfresco dining.

The property sits just under two miles from the nearest pubs in Butterknowle, with a convenience store lying in Cockfield, whilst a range of restaurants, pubs and shops can be found in the bustling market town of Barnard Castle.

Visit this historic town for The Bowes Museum, Barnard Castle run by English Heritage, and walks along the River Tees.

Begin exploring the scenic countryside by walking along the Pennine Way, picking up the trail at Middleton-in-Teesdale and continuing up the Tees Valley, coming to amazing natural beauty spots like High and Low Force waterfalls, Summerhill waterfall, and Cow Green Reservoir.

Spend an afternoon making new furry friends at Teesdale Alpacas where you can delight in a picturesque stroll through the countryside alongside one of these friendly creatures, a holiday activity you're sure to remember!

Enjoy quality time with your loved one in County Durham at Leadmill Piggery.

About the location


Staindrop 6 miles; Richmond 13 miles; Darlington 16 miles; Durham 20 miles.

The market town of Barnard Castle is situated in the unspoilt countryside of Teesdale in County Durham. It stands on the site of an ancient Roman fort which crosses the river. The medieval ruins of the castle still tower over the river and are well worth a visit. Known affectionately as 'Barney’ by residents and visitors alike, the town boasts cobble streets, yards and back lanes, which were first laid out in the 12th century. The nearby Bowes Museum is well worth a visit and a wonderful way to spend a day wandering around this beautiful building and experiencing the fascinating exhibitions. Beautiful walking country is right on the doorstep of this lovely market town, with woodland walks and cycle routes and the Lake District, the Pennine and Teesdale Ways, and the River Tees and magnificent waterfalls at High Force are all within easy reach.
