    Black Dog House is a lovely place to unwind, relax and enjoy. The house and the surrounding countryside have something to offer all ages and interests. It's grand for couples, groups of friends and families, with flexible accommodation and every comfort provided. The house is actually two19th Century stone-built terraced cottages, joined together to provide a damn fine place to stay over 3 floors, and has been fully refurbished - I should know, i was in there grappling the RSJ's through the bedroom window! There is plenty of space for everyone to do their own thing indoors, whilst the front garden is good for breakfast, and the rear yard is a place for evening drinks or a smalley BBQ. The set-up can be seen quite easily from the pictures, but essentially it's a walk in to th... more

My wife has already submitted a review of the premises, (ScotlandGalaxy) and we attended together with her parents. I fully support my wife's review, and confirm that everything she said was accurate and honest. I felt her review was fair and more positive than negative, and was surprised that the owner suggested that any one interested in hiring the cottage... more

I am always honest when it comes to these reviews, so going to put in all the information, as I believe it is relevant. When I booked the cottage, I requested 4 nights - but I had put in the wrong dates which indicated only 3 nights. All emails referred to 4 nights. When I put the information into the...

Management response:

It is a sadness to me that you cannot please everyone all the time, and that whatever you do in a positive way is forgotten. I obviously welcome genuine feedback and there are some valuable points here for which I shall of course pay attention. That said, the facts of the matter were quite different in many instances from that... more

A very beautiful old country cottage in beautiful peaceful surroundings. Inside is lovely and spacious, with everything you could possibly need for a great weekend. Beds are fantastic - as are the bedrooms! It's very difficult to find any faults - if you want a good base for Weardale, going walking or otherwise, then this is the place! more
