Description

East Farm Holiday Cottage (Pet Friendly), which sleeps 3, offers 4 star accommodation and is part of the Quality in Tourism Walkers Welcome scheme. It is a very comfortable annexe to the owners' stone-built farmhouse, in a quiet position on the hillside, less than a mile from the charming village of Middleton-in-Teesdale with its shops, pubs and cafes. 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.

Location description from owner

The England region

Set in the centre of the area, Middleton-in-Teesdale not only offers a peaceful base to explore this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. but also gives very easy access to the National Parks of The Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors with all their facilities.

If it is a day out in in one of the most interesting historical and cultural cities in England that you are looking for, then York, Durham or Newcastle with their beautiful architecture, great facilities and interesting range of shops are all within easy reach. In York, for example you can see the medieval city walls, quaint cobbled streets and iconic cathedral, visit The Yorvik Centre, York Dungeons, and The Castle Museum and wander around the fascinating shopping area of the 'Shambles'.

In addition, the area benefits from a host of wonderful attractions for a day out for the whole family. For example there is Hadrian's Wall with its world-class archaeology, dramatic forts, spectacular landscapes and informative visitor centres, or Beamish Open Air Museum. Beamish is a wonderful example of "living history".The museum tells the story of life in the North East of England in Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian times. 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.
