    “A true gem of a holiday cottage.”

    This is a truly wonderful holiday cottage in a quiet location on the outskirts of the village. Not only is it exceptionally spacious but the range of facilities is amazing. The owner, Pam, is very welcoming and on hand if you need anything, nothing is too much trouble.

    This is a truly wonderful holiday cottage in a quiet location on the outskirts of the village. Not only is it exceptionally spacious but the range of facilities is amazing. The owner, Pam, is very welcoming and on hand if you need anything, nothing is too much trouble. The log burning fire was lit on our arrival which made the cottage lovely and cosy and our first evening there was spent watching movies on the huge TV, feet up sprawled out on the massive sofa. The beds are extremely comfortable and lend themselves to a great night's sleep. The kids didn't even have to fight over the best room as they normally do because both of the rooms available to them were gorgeous and each had a double bed. The kitchen has everything you need and we particularly appreciated tea, coffee and milk being available, not to mention the prosecco and chocolates! As if the kitchen isn't already enough, we made use of the barbecue one evening and sat out on the patio. Having two bathrooms makes the morning getting ready routine so much more relaxed especially with teenagers! Talking of teenagers, the all-important Wi-Fi was present and met their requirements, you can't get a better recommendation than satisfying two internet hungry teens. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this accommodation.

The cottage

Built in 1840 this former National School has been lovingly transformed into a luxury mid-terrace holiday home, located next door to the owner's home, in the charming market town of Wolsingham on the edge of the North Pennines AONB.

From the moment you arrive at Bridge House, you realise that this cottage is something special, and you will immediately be taken by the open plan, contemporary feel that surrounds you.

It is perfect for a group of friends to relax together and explore this wonderful area.

The property features a spacious open plan living area with solid oak floors, vaulted ceilings, huge sumptuous sofas, and a cosy double fronted woodburning stove, making it perfect for relaxing together, on those chillier evenings.

With its large 55” 3D TV and Sky package, including Sports and Movies, guests will never be short of something to watch together in the evenings after a busy day out in the surrounding area.

Completing the accommodation is a bespoke white hi-gloss kitchen and a dining area which are designed with every comfort in mind.

Stairs from the living area lead to a glass mezzanine balcony with seating area and windows which look out over the Waskerley Beck below; a perfect place to relax with a good book.

From here a walkway leads to the two double bedrooms and family bathroom.

Outside, the enclosed garden is an ideal spot to relax with a glass of something cool and listen to the delightful sounds of the beck as it gurgles its way to join the River Wear.

Bridge House is centrally located in Wolsingham and is just a short stroll from an array of pretty shops, restaurants and pubs.

Nearby Hamsterley Forest has a network of walking and cycle paths where bikes and horses can be hired for the day.

A short drive will take you to many local attractions including Barnard Castle, High Force and Durham Cathedral.

A little further afield are the delights of the Lake District or the Northumberland Heritage Coastline, or you can simply enjoy relaxing in your beautiful holiday home.

This fabulous cottage is perfect for a luxurious, relaxing break with outstanding countryside nearby.
