“Peaceful, relaxing and wonderful views.”
Reviewed November 13, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

A well-located two storey cottage, within walking distance (weather permitting) of Middleton.
The cottage was clean, cozy and comfortable. It has a large bathroom, large main bedroom (the one we used) and well-stocked kitchen.
The view from the main bedroom, across the valley, is magnificent.
Nick and Elizabeth made us feel very welcome on arrival. I wish we could have stayed longer!

“Lovely, very dog-friendly cottage with great views.”
Reviewed June 26, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

East Farm Cottage is quite possibly the most dog-friendly cottage we have stayed in. The owners, Elizabeth and Nick, are very welcoming and friendly and nothing seems to be too much trouble for them. We were warmly welcomed by both of them plus their lovely dog, Missy. This welcome included fresh scones and tea, biscuits, fresh free range eggs from their own hens and fresh flowers - all gratefully appreciated. The cottage itself is small but very clean, comfortable and has everything you need for a great self-catering holiday in the U.K., including dishwasher, use of washer and tumble dryer and a drying room for wet outdoor gear! The king-size bed is extremely comfortable after a long day exploring the wonderful Teesdale area. The views from the patio are stunning and it was lovely to chill out there with a glass of wine or cup of tea after days out walking in the area.
We hope to return sometime!

“Perfect peace and tranquillity”
Reviewed October 30, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We have just returned from a wonderfully peaceful and relaxing break at East Farm Cottage.We came here while we were having a new kitchen installed at home and could not have chosen a better place. The cottage is extremely well equipped and very comfortable and the views are spectacular. We were surrounded by fields and the feeling of peace and tranquility was amazing. The skies were so dark at night that you can see the stars so clearly.This was our westie puppy,s first holiday and he loved it, especially the little white calf in the field.The owners are very friendly and we appreciated the tea and scones on arrival along with the gift of free range eggs from their hens. Nick was even so kind as to forward me a photograph of the little white calf that Stuart loved after we had returned home. We have already recommended this cottage to our friends and family.

“Peaceful location. Home from home cottage. Great walks from doorstep.”
Reviewed September 3, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Fantastic welcome from the owners and nothing too much trouble. Peaceful location with wonderful walks from the doorstep. Spotlessly clean throughout and every utensil you could want in the kitchen! Middleton Village is literally just down the road and has some nice places to eat and drink and a well stocked supermarket. Was a really good central location to explore the Yorkshire Dales and The Lakes by car but the immediate area was by far equally as good and not swamped by tourists! Our dogs absolutely loved their stay as well!

“An excellent cottage!”

person found this review helpful

We have just returned from a very enjoyable week in this cottage. The owners have obviously worked hard to provide absolutely everything you could possibly need for a stay away from home with great views from the windows to add to the experience! When you arrive, the cottage is beautifully clean and there are fresh flowers on the table plus some edible goodies which make you feel very welcome.The owners live next door but do not intrude However, if you bump into them outside they are very warm and friendly and happy to chat or give you ideas about places to visit. They are obviously very enthusiastic about their area.The other plus here is how welcome our two dogs were. If you want a dog-friendly cottage in a beautiful area of the country then this one is perfect.

“wonderful”
Reviewed June 21, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The cottage was beautiful with everything that could ever be needed (and more).we had the bed made as a super king size and it was enormous and made up with crisp white bedding.plenty of storage.shower was powerful with bath sheet towels.the cottage is set in what feels to be the middle of nowhere but is in fact only 10-15mins walk from the village. Middleton has a variety of cafes and a couple of dog friendly pubs.location and cottage second to none.nick and Elizabeth were lovely and miissy's bark was definitely worse than her bite!we would go back next week if we could but will have to settle for dreams for next year
