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!

Perfect Retreat

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...

New Year Heaven

Stayed for 2 nights New Years Eve and New Years Day and it was a real relaxing treat. The house was spotless and so very welcoming with everything we needed, even a bottle of prosecco to toast the New Year. Landlady popped in to say hi and make sure we had everything we needed, she even took the time to give us the best routes to go for a morning run with our two young children too which was really appreciated. Both adults and children loved our stay from the warm cosy atmosphere to the nice walk into the village where we were greeted by the friendly locals....some great places to eat too.....

For a Aussie this is a place dreams are made of.

This was the second time we've visited the West House that is owned by a very friendly couple, Sally Ann and Andrew Teward. The cottage is made of local stone and has been fully modernized inside to a very high standard. It contains a huge kitchen/diner, two cozy reception rooms and a bathroom and two very large bedrooms upstairs. The cottage has stunning views from every window and it's not unusual to see the likes of rabbits and pheasants roaming around. The town of Middleton In Teesdale, has all the necessary amenities. For a market town, Barnard Castle is a short drive away. For the keen angler, the Tewards have fishing rights to a section of the Tees River and welcome anglers. The Grasholme Reservoir is only 3 miles away and offers great angling for reservoir trout.
