“Beautiful cottage in a lovely location.”
Reviewed September 18, 2018 for a stay in September 2018

Lovely location, so quiet with a beautiful view, but not too far from local attractions. Really generous welcome pack and flowers on the table. Very well equipped, the owners had thought of everything. Nice and spacious with a lovely conservatory and a good-sized bathroom with both a bath and separate shower. Spotlessly clean.

“Fantastic Place!”

The cottage is about 2 min drive outside the small village of Bolam and offers a nice view over durham county, quiet nights and fresh country air. Its spacious, clean and extremely well equipped. For our family with 2 young kids there were games, books, dvds, toys, even some popsicles in the freezer (only counting the things we didn't expect). The welcome package was really fantastic and included a little present for the kids as well as homemade bread, cupcakes, homemade jam, tea, etc. The owners were extremely welcoming and helpful. David knows every little corner of the region and was happy to recommend interesting places to visit. Our stay was great and we are already planning to come back. We greatly recommend Ervine cottage for anyone and for families with kids in particular.

To mention something negative so this doesn't sound like we were paid to write this:) There was a storm and the wireless internet kicked out. At first we managed to set it back up, but it went off again at day 3. It didn't bother us really and one can hardly fault the owners for the weather. It is impressive that there is a wireless connection at this rural area in the first place.

“Excellent Stay”
Reviewed July 10, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

We just spent 10 days here - absolutely amazing location. Great base for touring, equally good for a quiet night in - glass of wine in the conservatory with great views across the countryside or even a short walk up the lane to the local village pub.

Cottage itself is both stylish and comfortable with high quality finish inside and out

Highly recommend it

“Stunning place”
Reviewed March 28, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Wow what a stunning place to of stayed. Down a country lane is the tranquil little cottage and even though it's next door to the main house it's not over looked.
I stayed here with my toddler and we had a fabulous time.
The welcome basket was filled with a great array of items and an amazing cornflake tart :-)
The hosts were lovely and friendly people and we have already booked to come back :-)
See you soon
