Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in June 2018

Great location for relaxing. The cottage has got everything you need to make your stay more enjoyable. Ali and Chris are very pleasant and polite host's and told us that if there was anything we needed just to contact them. We was so relaxed and taken in by the gorgeous views in actual fact we didn't need to bother them. Comunication was good right from the start and Ali gave us some hints and tips of where to go for nice long walks in and around the area. Unfortunately lisa is disabled due to strokes so we took the car most places due to Lisa not being able to walk too long of a distance. The upkeep of the cottage and garden is to a very high standard and we loved every minute of our stay. On arrival into the cottage the Host's had left us a nice bottle of cava and a chocolate fudge cake of which we very kindly demolished. This is a dog friendly cottage and both our dogs loved every minute of their stay too and was both very sad to leave. The cottage and area is so peaceful and tranquil you kind of forget about all the worries of daily troubles back home. Great place and hope to return very soon

“Fabulous, relaxing Hideaway”

A fantastic cottage on the banks of the Hury reservoir. The cottage is lovely, clean and warm, very comfortable and equipped to a high standard with everything you could possibly want. They have tea bags and coffee with fresh milk in the fridge and a packet of shortbread caramel biscuits for us and doggy treats for the dog. There was tin foil, cling film, washing up liquid, dishwashing tabs, doggy bags, even a towel for the dog, everything you'll need!
The cottage is remote situated 3 miles over the Moors, but has good roads to reach it if you follow the directions given by the owners. The nearest shop is 4 miles away which is a post office, so only open throughout the day and the nearest town Barnard Castle which is 10 miles away, so make sure you take the food you need for the first days.
The scenery is stunning with far reaching views across the reservoir and surrounding Pennines.
The garden is fully enclosed for dogs with a wire fence and chicken wire around the bottom, but if you have small dogs they maybe able to get through a small area of fencing that didn't have chicken wire on at the side of the cottage.
You can walk around the reservoir 3.5 miles, but there isn't a proper path way to get to it, so not good for less able visitors and I found that there isn't anywhere you can walk the dogs for a short toilet break as the cottage is down a short lane and then your onto the road and sheep in the field outside the cottage.
The owners were lovely and nothing would be too much trouble. I would definitely recommend and will look forward to a return visit.

“Perfect hideaway”
Reviewed February 20, 2017 for a stay in November 2016

This is the second time we have stayed at Hury Lodge, we enjoyed our week there last year so much that we returned for two weeks.

The cottage is adjacent to the owner's house, but we only saw them a couple of times during our stay. The cottage feels away from it all, surrounded by fields and sheep. There are also gorgeous views from the kitchen and conservatory of the reservoir.

The cottage is spacious and very well equipped. The wifi isn't great, but other than checking opening times etc. you won't need it as there's plenty of things to keep you busy in the area!

The house is very peaceful, I would definitely recommend. We will definitely be back at some point.

“Peaceful, relaxing, get away from it all location with stunning views.”

This is a lovely cosy cottage adjoined to the owners house with it's own garden and stunning views over Hury reservoir and the dales beyond. If you are looking for peace and quiet and somewhere away from it all, then this is the place to be.
The cottage is well maintained and equipped and each room feels very comfortable. My favourite was the kitchen with the lovely featured arch window overlooking Hury reservoir.
The cottage is warm and homely with freshly laundered, ample supply of towels and comfy beds. One bedroom is located off the kitchen, and the other off the sitting room. Even during a very stormy 36 hours, we felt cosy and warm in the cottage.
There are some walks round the reservoir or along the lanes in the immediate location and is probably even more lovely during the summer months. The nearest place, we found, to shop was Barnard Castle, so go with some provisions. Barnard Castle is a lovely market town and nice to wander around as it has some lovely shops and of course the castle.
There is no internet at the cottage, which is sometimes a good thing, but also extremely scarce mobile phone network coverage, so be prepared to be cut off from the outside world for a while.
This is a dog friendly cottage and the main reason I chose to stay here, especially with the enclosed garden. The sun room entrance porch is great for taking off muddy wellies and for drying off muddy paws before going inside the cottage. However, for two small Cockapoo's the garden was not secure enough as they could fit through the bars on the gate and the wire fencing also has gaps big enough for them to get through, so for us, it was supervised on the lead in the garden. Immediately across from the wire fence is a field of sheep, so something to be mindful of too.
I would definitely recommend this cottage. Certainly a great place to unwind.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed November 8, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Wonderful - well appointed cottage conversion in what has rightly been described as one of the UK's hidden gems, the Durham Dales. a short drive from the thriving market town of Barnard Castle with award winning restaurants, yet secluded and with outstanding views. Cosy bedrooms, comfortable sitting room, well appointed kitchen (the rolling pin and mixing bowl saw some action this week).
