  • "Had a lovely family birthday weekend here."

    The cottage is big enough for 6 adults ( and 2 dogs!). The hot tub was amazing! Only niggle we could find was that there is no Dustpan and brush/vacuum cleaner to clean up the crumbs on the tiled flooring. Just a small thing but would have made a big difference to us with having 2 dogs. Otherwise - lovely place, would recommend.

  • "Fantastic place, second time we have been and wont be the last, only criticising comment is not aimed at the owners or place itself its aimed at the idiots who have dogs and think everyone else should like them."

    As a dog lover myself remember that not everyone loves your dogs as much as you do and they are not everyones pets!!!! Dont leave your dogs unattended while you go out for the full day and let your dogs go mental, have some respect for other people.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay here, such a lovely location."

    There are a few cottages together, the back area where you sit has a lovely hot tub and view. There is a dividing wall between the cottages but you do occasionally see the neighbours but still felt private enough. We were lucky to have beautiful weather so didn’t use the pool as much as we thought. The pool and the outdoor hot tub makes it perfect for any weather.

The property

Wolsingham 1.7 miles.

This marvellous, semi-detached holiday cottage, Brancepeth rests on an idyllic farm on the outskirts of Wolsingham, Durham.

This cottage is the perfect stay for a family of six that want to escape to the countryside, boasting pet-friendly accommodation, as well as a hot tub and access to on-site facilities, such as a games room and an indoor swimming pool.

After soaking up those countryside views on arrival, park up in one of the ample off-road spaces and venture into your new home-from-home.

The open-plan living space features everything you'll need during your stay, including a sitting area with leather seating, a TV with Freeview and a woodburning stove; why not put on a family-favourite DVD and warm your toes by the fire?

The kitchen sits behind this space and is home to a good selection of appliances, including a convenient washing machine and dishwasher.

Once the aspiring chef of the group has whipped up delectable meals, follow the delightful aromas to the dining table and enjoy dinner with your loved ones.

As the day comes to an end, freshen up in the cloakroom or climb the stairs to the family bathroom, where a bath with shower over awaits.

Three bedrooms can also be found on the first floor, all offering storage for your things, including a double with TV, a twin and bunk room.

Before heading out for the day in the morning, savour an indulgent soak in the hot tub whilst your furry friends stretch their legs on the large lawn.

Be sure to make the most of the farm's activities and dip your toes in the pool, or play a round of snooker in the games room!
