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.

Highly recommended.


Great retreat with panoramic scenery

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!

Tranquil pleasant cottage in picturesque surroundings.

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.

A cottage with the most fantastic view.

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.

Wonderful - well appointed cottage conversion in what has rightly been described as one of the UK's hidden gems, the Durham Dales. a short drive from the thriving market town of Barnard Castle with award winning restaurants, yet secluded and with outstanding views. Cosy bedrooms, comfortable sitting room, well appointed kitchen (the rolling pin and mixing bowl saw some action this week).


Peaceful, relaxing, get away from it all location with stunning views.

This is a lovely cosy cottage adjoined to the owners house with it's own garden and stunning views over Hury reservoir and the dales beyond. If you are looking for peace and quiet and somewhere away from it all, then this is the place to be.
The cottage is well maintained and equipped and each room feels very comfortable. My favourite was the kitchen with the lovely featured arch window overlooking Hury reservoir.
The cottage is warm and homely with freshly laundered, ample supply of towels and comfy beds. One bedroom is located off the kitchen, and the other off the sitting room. Even during a very stormy 36 hours, we felt cosy and warm in the cottage.
There are some walks round the reservoir or along the lanes in the immediate location and is probably even more lovely during the summer months. The nearest place, we found, to shop was Barnard Castle, so go with some provisions. Barnard Castle is a lovely market town and nice to wander around as it has some lovely shops and of course the castle.
There is no internet at the cottage, which is sometimes a good thing, but also extremely scarce mobile phone network coverage, so be prepared to be cut off from the outside world for a while.
This is a dog friendly cottage and the main reason I chose to stay here, especially with the enclosed garden. The sun room entrance porch is great for taking off muddy wellies and for drying off muddy paws before going inside the cottage. However, for two small Cockapoo's the garden was not secure enough as they could fit through the bars on the gate and the wire fencing also has gaps big enough for them to get through, so for us, it was supervised on the lead in the garden. Immediately across from the wire fence is a field of sheep, so something to be mindful of too.
I would definitely recommend this cottage. Certainly a great place to unwind.


Fabulous, relaxing Hideaway

A fantastic cottage on the banks of the Hury reservoir. The cottage is lovely, clean and warm, very comfortable and equipped to a high standard with everything you could possibly want. They have tea bags and coffee with fresh milk in the fridge and a packet of shortbread caramel biscuits for us and doggy treats for the dog. There was tin foil, cling film, washing up liquid, dishwashing tabs, doggy bags, even a towel for the dog, everything you'll need!
The cottage is remote situated 3 miles over the Moors, but has good roads to reach it if you follow the directions given by the owners. The nearest shop is 4 miles away which is a post office, so only open throughout the day and the nearest town Barnard Castle which is 10 miles away, so make sure you take the food you need for the first days.
The scenery is stunning with far reaching views across the reservoir and surrounding Pennines.
The garden is fully enclosed for dogs with a wire fence and chicken wire around the bottom, but if you have small dogs they maybe able to get through a small area of fencing that didn't have chicken wire on at the side of the cottage.
You can walk around the reservoir 3.5 miles, but there isn't a proper path way to get to it, so not good for less able visitors and I found that there isn't anywhere you can walk the dogs for a short toilet break as the cottage is down a short lane and then your onto the road and sheep in the field outside the cottage.
The owners were lovely and nothing would be too much trouble. I would definitely recommend and will look forward to a return visit.

Mrs Arckless

Mr Dickinson

Very nice cottage, in a very quiet setting ideal for a very relaxing holiday.

Mr Munton

This is a cosy, well-appointed, cottage with SUPERB views of the surrounding countryside. The owner was friendly and helpful, and had gone to great pains to provide useful information about both the house facilities and local attractions, and local maps. The standard of furnishing was very good for a 'Pet-friendly' cottage. The decor was particularly pleasing. We would really struggle to find fault with this cottage.

It was a luxury to have a dishwasher, but I might have preferred a washing machine if we had been staying longer.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Hury Lodge to others.

Even my cats didn't want to leave!

Miss Richmond

Our second visit and it was just as we had remembered it. The owners were very friendly and always happy to chat. Had stunning views which the cottage makes the best of with the big picture window in the kitchen and the little porch/sun lounge. Care had also been taken with the garden. We hope to visit again. We all, including the dog, enjoyed it.
