  • "Our holiday here was fab, cottage was comfy and very quiet and was ideal for our travels out and about to see the sights, beautiful countryside and coast."

    Would love to visit again.

  • "The Lodge was very clean, cosy and well presented."

    Lots of storage and roomy for the two of us and our dog who explored the fenced garden. The WiFi was very patchy and we needed to keep putting the password back in. No DVD player. There was a lot of stones piled up in the garden that were not in the photographs. The location was perfect, not far from lots of Interesting places to visit and was very very peaceful.

  • "The Lodge was warm and confortable with most of everything you needed, though a couple of extra towels would have been welcome."

    Hosts were welcoming and helpful but kept their distance until needed. Garden was secure and very dog friendly. Not much street lighting so the night time sky was amazing on a clear night with lots and lots of stars to see. Unfortunately due to Covid most of the 'local' pubs were closed in the week though we really enjoyed The Copper Mine at Crook which was open at weekend and did excellent food. Would stay here again

  • "Well appointed accommodation, spacious, clean and warm."

    Great base to get around from. Children would have liked twin beds or bunk beds rather than sharing, but certainly wasn't an issue. Secure garden, that we kept ourbikes chained up in was very useful. Some small hazards in garden, that were not an issue to our children, but some younger children may go exploring!

  • "Long haired rug in living room seemed to have bits of previous dog kibble in it."

    Our dog kept finding bits. Hoover seem to struggle to get the bits out we did try. Shaking rug outside seem to be only answer. Seems to be just enough cutlery for 2 people. Four people might struggle. Seem to be no bread knife for cutting uncut loaves. Cottage was great for being warm and cosy and contained garden great for our little pooch.

  • "Unfortunately it was not a holiday."

    We were here for my mums funeral. Everything was lovely, the kitchen could perhaps do with a few more utensils like a vegetable peeler and a set of tongs. The only issue we had was the wifi kept dropping out. The heating worked extremely well. It was a lovely place in a beautiful little village.

  • "The Lodge is a warm and cosy cottage in a quiet village out of Bishop Auckland the owner was there to meet us."

    We were there for a break and to meet up with family. I think we will visit again!

  • "Lovely cottage very comfortable and the owners are very nice caring people, there are plenty of nice places to visit all within a relatively short distance, however this holiday cottage is not very good if you are disabled otherwise it’s brilliant."

  • "Excellent accommodation."

    Very dog friendly - owners even offered dog sitting. Even the poor weather couldn't dampen our spirits. Highly recommended.

  • "It appeared to be the first time that this cottage was being let and it was as we expected, see our positive input above."

    One of the extra's was the very nice contact with the owners, only when we wanted it. We can recommend this cottage as it is good and has a central positioning for many nice areas to exploit.

About the location

BISHOP AUCKLAND

Durham 11 miles;

Bishop Auckland is a busy market town, 11 miles to the south of Durham and is home to the Gothic palace of Auckland Castle and deer park, a 900 year old medieval hunting lodge and grounds, once home to the Prince Bishop’s of England. Bishop Auckland offers a thriving arts and cultural scene with a cinema, theatre and arts complex. There are plenty of places to eat and drink in the town centre and an abundance of shops to peruse. On the outskirts of the town you can discover the secrets of the largest Roman Fort in the county at Binchester or perhaps book a night at Kynren, a spectacular night show depicting the history of England, seen through the eyes of Arthur, a 10 year old boy from the North East, (opening July 2016) and marvel at the pyrotechnics, stunning lighting and water effects.The city of Durham is just a short drive north with an array of shops, pubs and restaurants, and a little further will take you to the Roman town of Chester-le-Street or Beamish Museum. A little further afield you can discover the Durham Dales, Newcastle upon Tyne, Hadrian's Wall, the Heritage Coast, Cragside at Rothbury and the North York Moors; there’s something for everyone.
