Property description

Please always email us for a price and availability as we can not list all prices on all 4 cottages for the whole year, generally we are around £900 for a peak week and £300 off peak weekend or mid week break. Home-Away will always quote the base rate of £100 per night, in most cases this is incorrect. We changeover (price by) Monday and Friday only. Weekends are priced by Fri Sat Sun only. Minimum mid week stay is 2 nights (off peak only, not school holidays or weekends)

Bowlees Farm Cottages have a full size, heated, indoor, fresh water pool with 7 seater hot tub. We can be fully disabled compliant upon request.There is also a full size snooker table and a sauna. The facilities are private between four cottages. The pool complex can be pre booked for private sessions (one hour in the morning and one hour in the evening with the addition of communal times). We are situated on a hill side and set in 60 acres, with fantastic views across the wear valley, in open countryside and just 1 mile from the conservation village of Wolsingham. We can sleep a maximum of 8 (per cottage) in 1 single, 1 double and 2 twin/tripple rooms, with a kitchen/lounge and a main bathroom. There are beautiful views of surrounding open countryside which will be suited to anyone requiring a quiet and peaceful holiday. We are just over an hour from the lake district and half an hour from Durham City and Newcastle. No Smoking.
