The property is able to sleep four people over one double and one twin room and comes with breathtaking views of the reservoir and surrounding countryside, complimented by the property’s beamed ceilings and wide French windows in the kitchen.

Situated in the midst of beautiful surroundings, the property provides first class accommodation with a high-quality fitted kitchen and dining area, as well as a lounge with electric wood-burning-stove effect fire.

Region: From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?
Town: Made up of a small cluster of hamlets and farm dwellings overlooking the reservoirs of Hury, Blackton and Balderhead, Baldersdale branches off Teesdale. Home to Hannah Hauxwell, this lovely settlement rose to fame in the 1970s when Hauxwell was featured on television for single-handedly running her farm from her home which had no running water. Now managed by Durham Wildlife Trust, 'Hannah's Meadow' is an attractive nature reserve. One of the most unspoilt villages in Teesdale – Romaldkirk – is close by and consists of pretty greens, old stone cottages, a beautiful old church and two pubs - one of which won the AA Pub of the Year award for England in 2003. The breathtaking Dales countryside provides some excellent walking and cycling routes whilst the cities of Durham and Newcastle are all within easy driving distance for more cosmopolitan activities.
Additional amenities include: high chair, cooker.Read more

The cottage was well equipped and comfortable. We moved the dining table in the kitchen to take better advantage of the views over the reservoir and hillside. The lounge was comfortable and the bedroom was fine, except for the small doorway which is fine if you are under 5 feet tall.

Comfortable accommodation in quiet backwater.Plenty of walks in the fells and around the nearby reservoirs,and plenty of attractions in the district.Even the weather[including rain and snow] didn't detract from the pleasant holiday.

Lovely cottage with all your homely needs cattered for, even for the dog. Fantastic scenery and views from the cottage. Beautifull countryside walks, lots of bird watching and breathtaking drives accross the moors to see the grouse. Best pub is the Fox and Hounds in Cotherstone and best cream tea was in The Laurels at Staindrop...yum yum!
A quiet retreat

A wonderful break away. Beautiful location, roomy, well equipped cottage. Helpful friendly owners who pulled our car out of a snow drift even!
Barnard Castle a 20 mns drive away.
Great location for walkers and for driving to explore the area, both north and south.
Only negative was no internet acccess, but that was a minor gripe.
We were there in winter. Would also be wonderful in the Summer.
