Delightful, comfortable cottage and great base for exploring the

The cottage was surprisingly spacious and well laid out, comfortably furnished and very cosy - particularly when the open fire was lit. It's juts round the corner from the main road so very convenient without being on the main thoroughfare. Kitchen cupboard essentials were in place and the welcome pack of wine and local bread was much appreciated. It was great that we could take the dog with us as not many cottages allow such but non-dog owners can be reassured - the cleanliness of the place means you would not detect any lingering dog odour.
Middleton-in-Teesdale is nicely positioned to enjoy the northern dales for the Tyne and Tees valleys as well as the bordering Yorkshire Dales, with good local walks for the less adventurous . It has good local shops within 2 mins walk from the cottage and some nice eating places.
Booking with Sykes was straightforward and their descriptions accurate.
A cosy well equiped home from home in breathtaking countryside.

We were delighted with Gateway Cottage and the charm and amenities of Middleton in Teesdale.
The house has all you will need and was very comfortable. We especially loved the woodburning stove.
We would not hesitate to stay there again.
Middleton itself has great shops pubs and restaurants. We ate at the Forrester Hotel and Restaurant and had a devine meal. The chef pulled out all the stops to provide our son(allergic to gluten,dairy and eggs) with a scrummy meal.
Great Cottage, Great Town, Great area, Great Weekend!

Visited Middleton a month before Christmas, its a large village more than a town, but a real community with a great atmosphere and not spoilt by tourism, although they are obviously geared up for it with a good range of eating and drinking places, tea shops and interesting places. I would give them the award for the best-smelling chip shop (even open on Sundays, which is great after a hard days walking). Big chunky chips and the pies are home made, and as a result refreshingly none of them are identical in shape! But you can savour wine and tapas just as readily elsewhere in the town, and the pub grub is good too.
This is a great centre to explore Teesdale from, which is grander and less touristy than the dales, but as physically exquisite. Everywhere you look up in Middleton you will see green hills tumbling into the town, and its remarkably central for the Lake District and North Yorkshire/Dales when the days grow longer. By chance we were there when they turned on their Christmas lights, funded by a local whipround, with villagers and local children singing carols, and dispensing mulled wine, mince pies and hot chestnuts. Santa arrived on his tractor. It was idyllic and simply a pleasure to be there.
On a practical level, there was a co-op supermarket that stocked most things you'd want, including copious supplies of coal, kindling and logs, as we had a lovely log burning stove. The cottage was mid-terrace but very spacious and well appointed with very comfy furniture, and a well equipped kitchen. Lots of nice little touches and a great book collection!
We booked at quite short notice, but it was a very smooth process, access was easy and they had even found time to clean it, leave a bottle of wine on the table and some logs to start us off. It was a lovely warm and cosy home to come back to.
I struggled to find fault with anything, but the mobile phone reception was suspect, which will give your teenager a nervous breakdown but may be welcomed by others!

Well organised information about the cottage, despite slightly convoluted access arrangements.
House beautifully modernised with lovely antique touches like the china cabinet. Beds very comfortable in good-sized bedrooms and kitchen well-equipped.Lovely countryside around with interesting industrial history and the town had all we needed to buy supplies for selfcatering or to eat out at different places several times.Loved being able to go for long walks straight from the house. One difficulty was the positioning of a door on the stairs 2-3 stairs up which I forgot in the night going to the bathroom and fell down twice, luckily without damaging myself or the furniture.
