“A real home from home”
Reviewed May 19, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

A real home from home cottage in it's own private grounds which really does have everything which we needed, including being dog friendly. We were celebrating and had pre-booked Champagne on our arrival and were not disappointed as we were greeted by the friendly owner, everything was perfect, our dog even got treats. The cottage was warm, very comfortable and so cosy. The decor was very relaxing and of a very high professional standard throughout with quality soft furnishings and lighting which gave a very classy, comfortable ambience throughout. We lit the log burner and never looked back it was so cosy. The kitchen area is very well provided for with lot's of worktop space and essentials (huge fridge/freezer) and a dining area which has a wonderful cosy bench seat, which was ideal for reading the Sunday newspapers and for using my laptop. Upstairs the bedroom was so comfortable with ample hanging space in the built-in wardrobe and drawers for everything else. A great ensuite with large shower and a fabulous view looking up river from the sky light opening window. Parking was so easy in the grounds of the cottage. I was so relaxed listening to the river and watching the wildlife which visited it. The location was ideal for us as we visited Hamsterley Forest and Weardale and there are 2 good pubs in the village of Witton Le Wear (5 minutes walk) one pub serves food which we enjoyed. We like to 'get away from it all' when we rent a cottage and this little gem has it all, highly recommended from us. We'll be back soon.
