The Terrace Cottage is a charming stone built 2 bedroom cottage with original features and a really cosy feel set in a terrace of C19 mining dwellings. It has been recently refurbished to a high standard, and newly open for bookings this year so there are not many reviews available. As the owners, we use the cottage regularly and our objective has been to make it as comfortable as possible so have made sure the furnishings and linens are to a standard we would expect!! See more on our website.

Set in the village of Rookhope in upper Weardale, you are in the heart of the Pennines, which gives amazing walking, cycling and touring opportunities. There are plenty of places to visit nearby and within a few minutes drive, from Hadrian's Wall to Beamish Museum and Cauldron Snout!

The cottage is fully equipped, with quality linen, bedding and towels in the two ensuite rooms (one is double and the other twin). There is a bench to enjoy morning coffee in the sun with furniture outside on the Terrace area with Barbecue; where there is also a large shed ideal for bike storage, if you're wanting to take advantage of the excellent cycleways nearby.

You can look out over the village from the terrace area while enjoying a barbecue, before strolling down to the Rookhope Inn for a welcome drink at the end of the day. With a logburning stove in the inglenook, you can snuggle up on cosy nights in and enjoy a movie or listen to your music on the iPod dock.

Weardale cuts through the high Pennines in County Durham and is an ideal base for all sorts of holidays with the C2C Cyclaway passing through the village and plenty of walking routes into the Pennines. There are also a number of Heritage Railways within easy reach in Weardale, South Tynedale and Wensleydale. As an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Pennines are a breathtaking backdrop for your holiday at any time of year.

Alston, Stanhope and Wolsingham are the closest and all have a variety of galleries, cafés and decent pubs. Upper Weardale has a wild rugged beauty, and gives the opportunity to explore further 'over the tops' into Teesdale and Allendale.

The region also boasts some spectacular heritage sites in easy reach, from Durham Cathedral to some of the great castles and stately homes, the Bowes Museum, Hexham, Corbridge and Newcastle upon Tyne all within an hours drive. The famous Stanhope Show, with Geese herding and Wife carrying contests happens each September. so watch out for details.

Killhope museum is a fascinating visit for all ages with a chance to go underground and to see the largest mill wheel in England. There are several other disused lead mines in Rookhope such as Grove Rake, Bolts Burn Mine, Lintzgarth Smelt Mill and Stotsfield, which produced huge amounts of lead and fluorspar in its time.


Rookhope is a small, picturesque village nestling in its own valley just off the A689 route through Weardale, steeped in history with remains of local mining nearby, the village has a school, village shop and a welcoming pub with excellent ales and food. Nearby Stanhope is the main shopping town with all amenities including an open air swimming pool!

Some excellent walks, cycle paths and bridle ways are easily accessible in the area and enjoy stunning scenery and beautiful surroundings. There are also horse riding fishing and sailing facilities not far away - let us know if you'd like those arranged for you.
