    “Absolutely loved the lodge.”

    The property has been renovated to a very high standard and has everything you need for a relaxing time away. Loved it so much that it's been booked again for later in the year. Thank you so much.

The property

Barnard Castle - 6 Miles.

Situated on the outskirts of Eggleston, near the market town of Middleton-in-Teesdale, is this charming annexe property, Folly Lodge.

Attached to the owner's property and situated within three acres of mature woodland, your dream hideaway has been refurbished to a high-standard with all contemporary fixtures and fittings and boasting delightful rural views across the surrounding woodland.

Be welcomed into a small entryway which leads to a ground-floor utility area housing a washing machine so you don't have to bring your whole wardrobe with you.

Follow the steps up to the first floor and be welcomed into a spacious open-plan living area with underfloor heating, complete with a well-equipped kitchen to cook up some delicious meals before gathering at the dining table and popping open a bottle of champagne to celebrate.

Curl up on the plush sofa or armchair with your feet up and unwind into the evening enjoying a movie whilst the woodburning stove keeps the room nice and toasty.

During the summer months, throw open the patio doors leading out to the first-floor "tree-top" decking area and let the cool breeze wash over the interior whilst you enjoy a refreshing drink in the evening sun.

Once the evening draws to a close, choose from a super-king-size (zip/link) bedroom on the first floor sharing a bathroom, or a further second-floor king-size bedroom which comes with its own en-suite shower room, perfect for the adults of the group.

The zip/link bed allows groups of all types to stay here, accommodating for friends, families or two couples; whatever you need, make sure to request whilst booking.

Feel free to use the three acres of woodland, where you can walk your dog(s), and let your children explore.

You will have access to your own bench and firepit overlooking the Teesdale valley.

Nestled in the small village of Eggleston, make sure you explore the nationally renowned Eggleston Gardens and tea-room as well as enjoying the lovely Tees river walks.

Hamsterley Forest is a short drive away, offering a full day out adventure for the whole family and provides a wide variety of mountain bike tracks for all skill levels.

A few miles away from the bustling town centre of Barnard Castle, rich with popular tourist attractions including Barnard Castle which can be found on a high rock overlooking the River Tees and dates back to the 12th century.

If you're looking for some culture, The Bowes Museum has a large collection of art and antiques for browsing, whilst the town centre provides an array of independent shops if you're looking to treat yourself.

The River Tees is the perfect opportunity for those seeking for some watersporting activities, whilst the nearby North Pennines AONB offers an abundance of trails for walking, cycling and hiking through the picturesque woodland.

Folly Lodge is an excellent choice for a countryside break to the heart of County Durham.
