"Lovely quaint little cottage in a traditional village."
Friendly locals and beautiful views.
"Unsure as to why this property has received mainly 5 star reviews in the past as it does not warrant this at all in our opinion."
The property was very tired decor wise, the carpets were grubby and were thin and basic, skirting boards and window sills had many paint chips, there was mould on the window frames of the main bedroom (one window in here did not close properly). Floor covering in the dining room was lifting a lot, appeared not to have been fitted properly. The bench in the garden was soiled with bird droppings and had not been cleaned. The description states 'off road parking' but our holiday was interrupted by a neighbour demanding we move our car from the designated area we had been told to park as he had right of access and needed to use it. We were left half a toilet roll in the bathroom with no spare ones. Overall fairly clean and the sofas in the living room comfortable.
"Comfortable bungalow in a delightful setting."
Plenty of pots and pans and adequate crockery to self cater. Lovely views from the rear of the property and a very useful field in which to exercise dogs. Beds were very comfortable and the house was welcoming, warm and cosy. The owners show every consideration for guests with a generous welcome hamper. The village has two very good pubs and it is a short and easy drive into Barnard Castle for shopping and a good range of independent shops and eateries.
"A second stay at Roseville which lived up to all expectations."
The cottage has everything you could possibly need to enjoy your stay. It is also extremely clean and well cared for. Thanks also for the great hamper of goodies which was much appreciated. Would definately return again.
"This cottage is a gem, a lovely home from home thanks to the effort of the owner."
The welcome hamper was the best we’ve had in years. The cottage is ideally placed for visiting the many attractions in the area and surrounded by so many interesting and sometimes challenging walks. We took our rough collie Spice who was quite safe as the cottage has enclosed front and rear gardens and the bonus of a gate into the field at the back owned by the owner, who said it was fine for us to exercise Spice there. The Fox and Hounds in the village does great food and even takeaway fish and chips.
thank you for your positive feed back , hope to see you again Property Owner
"Lovely comfortable and clean bungalow."
A great welcome pack awaited us and doggy treats too, which was very much appreciated by all. The rear garden has amazing views over the field beyond, it was just nice to return from a walk, sit in the garden with a G&T, unwind and take in the view. We saw deer & pheasant. The garden is fully enclosed and ideal for the dog, it has astro turf so no muddy paws to worry about. We parked the car and never used it again all week as there are so many great walks from the doorstep. We used the regular bus service to go into Bernard Castle which stops a few feet from the bungalow. A great week was had by all! Thank you! We will definitely be returning soon.
"The cottage was lovely, would highly recommend this"
"Lovely cottage in a pretty village."
Lovely little extras to help when we first arrived. Owner happy to help with queries.
"We had a lovely stay at Rose Ville in Cotherstone."
On arrival we received a lovely welcome hamper for us and our dog. The house was lovely and clean and the view from the back doors/garden was so beautiful, we spent a lot of time admiring it. Our dog loved the use of the field at the back for some evening exercise. We spotted deer, rabbits, swift’s and a barn owl from the garden. There are lots of walks on the public footpaths in the surrounding area and further afield. We did low force/high force waterfalls from Bowlees visitor centre. 10.5miles to Barnard Castle and back along the river. We also did some smaller walks along the Tees Railway Path. There was so much more to explore we would definitely return. Jayne the host was lovely, answering any questions I had.
"An excellent property that was much larger than expected from the outside or photos."
The cottage was very well equipped and immaculately clean and decorated. The owners left a wonderful welcome pack and were available to answer any queries without being intrusive. A true gem of a find in a lovely location which we would hopefully return to for another visit. Thank you Jayne and David for your very high standards. LInda, Fred and Dexter the cocker pop.
"Cosy cottage with lovely views from back garden."
Garden gate access directly on to field ideal for our dog Archie, also footpaths to River . Plenty of walks close by so did not use car during stay. Nice quiet village, 2 pubs, the Red Lion was shut during our stay but had lovely food & drinks served by friendly staff at the Fox & Hounds.
"Very cozy and peaceful would definitely return"
"A very comfortable stay."
Very clean and a lovely hamper left by the owners. The field at the back is owned by the cottage owners and ideal for dog owners. We were lucky with the weather and sat in the garden most evenings listening to a Tawny owl. We also caught sight of a Barn Owl. We saw deer too. Despite being sited on the road through Cotherstone, there was little traffic at night. A very peaceful, quiet stay was just what the Dr ordered...literally!
"Spacious cottage,quiet location,lovely view of fields and rolling hills from the back garden."
Excellent internet speed 72Mbps!
"The cottage was very nice."
The hamper was a nice touch. We had every thing we needed and we are looking at booking again next year.
"Exceptionally clean with all the required precautions taken and having a hand sanitiser dispenser as you entered the property and we were left an anti bacterial spray in the kitchen."
very well equipped, it had everything you need and more.
"The cottage is bigger than it looks in the photos and is really comfortable, a home from home."
the welcome hamper was a nice surprise too.
"Was an absolute joy to stay in this delightful cottage in a charming and friendly village."
Very peaceful. Easy off road parking. Cottage immaculately clean and very well equipped. Comfy bed and black out curtains ensured a good night's sleep. The lovely owner provided a generous hamper with fresh eggs, milk and doggie goodies too! Gardens fully enclosed and secure for the dog with full access to the field at the back. Lots of well signposted walkies and dog friendly places to visit nearby . Alot of thought, care and attention has gone into ensuring a stay here is first class.
"Lovely cottage we will definitely be returning."
Nice welcome hamper of wine, crisps, chocolate, shortbread, butter, milk, eggs and bread. Also dog treats and a ball.
"One of the best equipped cottage we have stayed in."
"This was a lovely comfortable cottage with plenty of places to walk from the ..."
This was a lovely comfortable cottage with plenty of places to walk from the cottage plus a great field directly from the garden a definite plus for our dog The welcome pack was great including a treat for Bryn very thoughtful Jayne was very helpful
"The owners, in our opinion, in this instance went "above and beyond" what could be expected to make us welcome for our break over Christmas."
From beautiful and tasteful seasonal decorations to welcoming hampers for ourselves and even our dog.Our 6 year old granddaughter who celebrated her birthday on Boxing day was left a Christmas gift under the Christmas tree AND a birthday gift. We were so happy with the accommodation, the location and the level of service we enjoyed, we have booked to stay there again in May.
"The cottage was lovely and really comfortable, the hamper for when we got there was a great touch, really enjoyed it."
"A lovely cottage, very well thought out."
The cottage is all on one level ideal for little ones. Jayne even left out some toys which our little girl loved. It’s very cosy and a home from home, well stocked with everything you need for a self catering holiday. Very clean and tidy with plenty of fresh clean towels. The views out of the back of the cottage are of rolling fields with a gate for access to the fields for walking/dog walking. Great little welcome packages too including bread, butter, milk, juice, wine & the very delicious local Cotherstone cheese. Even our dog & 2 year old received little welcome packs, a nice touch. Highchair & travel cot are available on request. The village itself has 2 nice pubs, The Fox & Hounds does nice food & The Red Lion is good for a pint or two. The village is picturesque and a great location for exploring local area. A great stay, we will be back, thanks Jayne for making us feel so welcome.
"The bungalow is ideal for dog owners with acres of fields outside the back door."
The Village is so lovely with 2 great pubs and numerous walks,and Barnard Castle and Richmond 2 market towns to explore.A gem of accommodation and area.
"The cottage was lovely."
We didn't need to contact owners,because everything was perfect.The welcome hampers for us and the pooch were amazing,and made us feel very special. What blew us away was the back garden,with a view to die for. We were even lucky enough to have deer in the field behind us one morning.Walked miles.So many local walks where the car isn't needed'and the one time we walked a little further than expected,we got the local bus home. Bus stop right outside the house.
"Lovely countryside, attractive village with 2 dog friendly pubs, and a lovely cottage."
Larger than listing photos would suggest. Direct access to open fields and the extensive network of local walks direct from the back gate was a great bonus. A rushed booking, as I suddenly had a 4 week gap between house moves. High season and with limited choice this seemed a good option, but couldn't have chosen better if there had been unlimited availability. Highly recommended and intend to return.
