We didn't need the car once we got there as the village shops catered for everything we needed.
The cottage was in such a good location for High Force & Low Force Waterfalls . A splendid walk from the doorstep .
Off road parking . We could not have asked for anything more .

The house was everything we could have asked for.
Following the cancellation of another property in the area at short notice, the owners of West House couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. Fresh eggs, milk and biscuits all left for us, spacious, comfortable rooms, excellent heating in the teeth of very cold wintry blasts and to top it all a super-king size bed for a great nights sleep.
We highly recommend this cottage to anybody, it met our needs and more.
Hopefully we may book there again next time we visit our relations and friends in the North East.
Forgot to mention the views as well...
Amazing cottage in beautiful setting, a perfect Christmas!

This was our first Christmas away from home, and my wife and I wanted to show our children what Christmas is like away from the city. The cottage was beautiful, we all loved the wood burner, comfy beds and thick stone walls. It was made even better by the snow! The owners were fantastic, providing lovely touches such as decorations and a beautiul xmas tree, fresh eggs and logs. I would recommend this cottage to anyone!
peace and quiet
