An open-plan living room opens out onto a tranquil garden, while the kitc...hen provides all modern appliances and a comfortable dining area.

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: Romaldkirk has to be one of the most delightful villages in Teesdale. It has all the main ingredients for a typical "chocolate-box" village with its greens, old stone built cottages, a beautiful old church and two pubs, one an AA Pub of the Year for England winner in 2003. Romaldkirk is surrounded by the outstanding Dales countryside and this makes the village an excellent base for walking and for touring around the Northern and Yorkshire Dales. There are fantastic fell, flat and river walks and cycle rides all from the doorstep and if you want to journey further afield then the Northern Lakes and the cities of Durham and Newcastle are an easy drive. Just a 10 minute drive away is the historic market town of Barnard Castle with many cultural and historical attractions all under the protective watch of Bernard de Balliol's stunning 12th Century castle.

A very well-equipped and comfortable cottage with wonderful views and lovely outside space. Slightly inconvenient not having a 'permanent' table - the gate-leg table was not ideal, otherwise very comfortable and the owners were very helpful and friendly but not at all obtrusive. Village delightful with great food at the Rose and Crown. Thoroughly recommend this cottage.

Looked forward to our holiday for weeks - was not disappointed! The cottage had everything we needed. Very clean. The enclosed garden was a plus - especially for Roxy, our dog. Great views. We arrived on the day of the village fete - we went along and were made vey welcome.

Romaldskirk is a beautiful unspoilt village near Barnard Castle, Teesdale. The cottage was warm and welcoming, kitted out with everything you could possible need. I couldn't have asked for a better weeks break in October. I was researching my family tree and I found the local people freindly and helpful. Teesdale is a wonderful area for walking the scenery is stunning. I will definately be going back.
