    “We had a fabulous time at Jacob's ...”
    We had a fabulous time at Jacob's Lodge and would highly recommend this beautiful property. There were 15 of us- 4 couples and 7 children children ranging in age from 6 to older teenagers. The property was easy to find and immaculate. The accommodation was really flexible with plenty of space for everyone to relax. We really appreciated the two separate living rooms although spent most time in the open plan kitchen dining living area. Adults, teenagers and little ones very much enjoyed the ...
    We had a fabulous time at Jacob's Lodge and would highly recommend this beautiful property. There were 15 of us- 4 couples and 7 children children ranging in age from 6 to older teenagers. The property was easy to find and immaculate. The accommodation was really flexible with plenty of space for everyone to relax. We really appreciated the two separate living rooms although spent most time in the open plan kitchen dining living area. Adults, teenagers and little ones very much enjoyed the leisure suite and we spent lots of time here too. We have stayed in numerous holiday properties over the years and would say that this property ranks amongst the very best. Having never holidayed in this area we were really impressed with the beautiful Teesdale countryside. There were amazing views from the property and several fantastic walks straight from the front door. We particularly enjoyed the circular walk starting at Eggleston and taking in Romaldkirk and Mickleton before heading back to the house. The cooking facilities are very good but we also enjoyed a couple of meals out at The Crown in Mickleton and The Three Tuns in Eggleston - both were excellent. We would definitely consider a return visit to Jacobs Lodge and another chance to enjoy this fabulous property and stunning countryside!

The property

This outstanding property is surrounded by the most impressive countryside views just outside the village of Eggleston, six miles from Barnard Castle.

With spacious rooms, high quality fixtures and fittings and an external leisure suite, this detached holiday home is ideal for a family or a group of friends looking to discover Teesdale or celebrate a special occasion.

The main open plan living area is modern yet homely with high ceilings and feature beams.

There is a well-equipped kitchen area, a breakfast bar and a more formal dining area where evening meals can be enjoyed.

A comfortable sitting area is set around a woodburning stove and there are high arched windows looking out over the farmland and patio doors which allow you to take meals outside to be enjoyed alfresco.

There are two bedrooms on the ground floor, both of which have an en-suite wet room, and with wider doors these are perfect for those with limited mobility.

The central staircase then takes you up to the first floor where you will find three more bedrooms, each enjoying the breathtaking views, and a second sitting room which is ideal for relaxing in the evening with one of your favourite films or a good book.

The second floor has two final bedrooms with sloped ceilings and Velux windows which look out to the hills beyond, a delightful scene to wake up to.

Outside there is a lawned garden and a paved patio with a large stone sitting and dining area.

There is also the spectacular bonus of an external leisure suite which has a hot tub, sauna and a yoga and pilates studio.

Children and adults alike will be in their element as there is also a games room with a pool table, TV and games console.

With all this available at the property you may find you never need to leave as these features are perfect no matter what the weather!

If you can drag yourself away, walkers will adore this area as footpaths run in every direction and open up miles of countryside that is waiting to be explored.

The village of Eggleston is a fantastic base with two local pubs with restaurants in the village, one of which is just 100 yards away, both serving home-cooked food, as well as shops being available within 3 miles.

Middleton-in-Teesdale and Barnard Castle are nearby and have a host of attractions and facilities.
