  • “I scored Bridge House as ‘Met expectations’ because I had high hopes to start with for this holiday and Pamela and Bridge House did everything possible to achieve these.”


    Lovely property in a peaceful setting. A last minute decision to include my in-laws on the trip was no problem and they were accommodated with no issues. Pamela pointed out the low sofa and provided a more suitable chair for the in-laws. The in-laws took the downstairs bedroom as it had an en-suite with a walk-in shower allowing them privacy and myself and my husband slept upstairs and felt like we had our own personal suite! Pamela’s animals kept us all entertained and my Mother in Law hasn’t stopped talking about playing ball with Badger, Pamela’s Border Collie. It was obvious that even cats and dogs are completely relaxed in this beautiful property. Local shops and restaurants provided everything we required and we spent our days visiting local attractions; Raby Castle, Barnard Castle, Cragside, Killhope Lead Mine as well as relaxing around Bridge House. We felt like we had made a good friend in Pamela by the end of the week and we will definitely go back again.

The property

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 60” smart TV with Sky package including sports and movies,Netflix and Amazon Prime, 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.
