Piercebridge is a small village in the county of Durham. It lies on the banks of the River Tees, with the North York Moors to its east and the Pennines to its west. Piercebridge Beck winds its way through the countryside at the northern edge of the village. Piercebridge was built on the site of a Roman fort, some of which is beneath the Green, and the remains of a Roman bridge can be found just south of the river. Piercebridge holiday cottages are surrounded by peaceful farmland, woods and hills, where superb walking can be enjoyed. The village consists of a scattering of Georgian and Victorian homes, most of which stand on the road which runs east toward Darlington and west toward Barnard Castle, or the road which runs north and south, across the river.
Rose Cottage is a detached character cottage in a quiet corner of Piercebridge in the Yorkshire Dales. Mature gardens surround the country cottage which offers families and pets rural charm and modern comforts. Furnished with great care, the cottage offers graceful views throughout and an open fire.
Exploring the village from your Piercebridge holiday cottage, you will notice that many homes are painted white or cream, and a number are listed buildings. There are several other landmarks to look out for, including the Grange Farm Buildings, and the Church of St Mary. Not to be missed on self-catering holidays in Piercebridge, the farm shop and café by the Green serves fresh produce and a variety of dishes prepared with ingredients fresh from the fields. On the banks of Piercebridge Beck, the Fox Hole is a welcoming pub serving a range of local ales and good food. The market town of Darlington is a short drive eastward from the village, on the banks of the River Skerne. The town centre is home to fine Georgian and Victorian architecture, including the market hall.
West of Piercebridge, Barnard Castle is another classic Durham market town, where the remains of an imposing fortress can be explored. The tumbling waterfalls and vast, heather moors of the North Pennines lie a little further west.
