    “Everything very efficiently organised.”

    Cottage was fabulous, in a wonderful location, lovely local walks, interesting places to visit, farm shop next door, village pub with great food. Our first trip since lockdown, but nothing to worry us. Owner came round after. We arrived, to check everything ok. Her whole family were friendly and helpful. Many thanks for a great break.

The property

Nestled within the idyllic countryside village of Piercebridge, you will find the charming cottage of 4-5 The Green.

Beautifully decorated with calming neutral tones and original feature fireplaces, this charismatic cottage provides a wonderful base for families of four in search of a relaxing retreat to the beautiful county Durham.

Open up the front door and step inside the welcoming ambiance of the airy hallway, taking off your coat and shoes before moving your way into the warmth of the sitting room to unwind with a movie on the TV.

Spend an afternoon baking with the children in the delightful kitchen or rustle up a mouth-watering home cooked meal with the help of the handy utensils and well-thought appliances, for the whole family to feast upon in the dining room.

Once the dishes have been cleared and the wine has been poured, hash out your plans for the rest of your days in the area or curl up in the armchair by the open fire as you get lost in the gripping narrative of your favourite book.

Freshen up with a cooling wash in the ground-floor shower room before climbing the staircase to discover two beautifully appointed chambers, including a homey double with fabulous floor length curtains and a flexible king-size bed that can be transformed into two single beds upon request.

Head outside to the rear courtyard, grabbing your bikes from the storage shed before embarking in a scenic cycle through the countryside, stopping off at popular attractions such as the English Heritage Site of Piercebridge Roman Bridge or the 18th century Tees Cottage Pump Station to soak up the local history.

Explore the nearby town of Darlington or head to Hartlepool for a stroll along the Marina with a tasty portion of fish and chips.

On your way back to the cottage, visit the owner’s Farm Shop to pick up some fresh produce before an evening spent cooking indoors with your loved ones or get to know the locals with a pint in the pub.

Book 4-5 The green for a relaxing retreat to the countryside.

About the location

PIERCEBRIDGE

Barnard Castle 10 miles.

The attractive village of Piercebridge with its splendid village green, excellent village pubs and organic farm shop is located on the Teesdale border, next to the river Tees, just 10 miles east of Barnard Castle. The village is renowned for its Roman heritage, which dates back to around 70 AD. The Piercebridge Roman Fort Site, a recognised ancient monument, forms part of the region’s Dere Street Roman Trail, a celebration of the rich Roman heritage still to be enjoyed in the area. Forming part of the Teesdale Way, and within easy reach of the Cleveland Way, this walker’s paradise provides an excellent base from which walkers and cyclists can explore this delightful Dales area including nearby Swaledale and Weardale, with many bridleways, footpaths, cycle trails and lovely riverside walks available. Local attractions include the magnificent Raby Castle in nearby Staindrop, the Bowes Museum, Yorks National Railway Museum, Durham Cathedral and of course the delightful market town of Barnard Castle. The village is also ideally placed for touring the Lake District and the Northumbrian National Park.
