Would stay here agian
Clean spacious cottage with everything you will need. Perfect location for discovering Teesdale and only 40 odd mins from the Lakes. Blacksmiths Arms not too far for a nightcap. Didn't find a local shop in Mickelton but Middleton just down the road has a (pricey) Co-op.
Many thanks for your review, we would love to welcome you in the future.
Great value in a quiet village, perfect for a walking holiday
Great cottage, much more spacious than it looks in the photographs. Clean, well equipped and in a fab location for a walking holiday. Surrounded by wonderful scenery. Very good value.
I put my parents up here for 4 days over Christmas as our house wasn’t big enough for everyone and thought they might appreciate a bolt hole away from the racket ... it was perfect. ... and couldn’t be better for a quick night cap before bed with 2 great pubs within easy walking distance ... they already want to go there again 😊😉
Thank you very much for the review. It was lovely to welcome your parents and they would be warmly welcomed back anytime. They clearly had a great Christmas, spending it with all of the family.
A real home from home
We love this cottage. We have stayed here three times, which speaks for itself.
It's well equipped, clean and spacious. Everything has been thought of and it has great wi-fi and a mobile phone signal (not everyone's priority but we have reason to need it as I'm sure many others do).
The bathroom has had a recent refurbishment and now has a great separate walk-in shower and a roll-top bath.
We're hoping to return soon.
Very cosy and comfortable
