Set in the stunning Durham Dales, it offers superb panoramic views south and south west across the Tees Valley, along which both the Pennine Way and the Teesdale Way pass.

The cottage provides an ideal country retreat for those wishing to get away from it all and enjoy the sights and sounds of the countryside in a beautiful peaceful setting. Upper Teesdale has been part of a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty for over 25 years and an European Geopark for ten years.

Standing in 300 acres of Durham country side, it boasts a pit village, a colliery, a range of shops, a working Victorian farm and an 18th century manor house . You can tour the whole site on a variety of vintage trams and buses and costumed staff are on hand to tell you more about everyday life in years gone by.
