Attractive dog-friendly retreat with a hot tub and enclosed garden, set on a relaxed, working farm in a tranquil hamlet close to Bishop Auckland and the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Enjoy walking, running and cycling from the doorstep, and playing golf just a short drive away. For the local pub and takeaway food try nearby Willington village (2 miles) and for shopping, pubs and restaurants, head to the market town of Bishop Auckland (4 miles) where you can also explore the Auckland Project, castle and deer park. Visit Durham Cathedral, the castle, Botanic Gardens, shops and museums or stroll along the riverbanks and enjoy lunch in one of the restaurants. Drive into the North Pennines AONB, a UNESCO Global Geopark, for naturally beautiful landscapes and outdoor adventures, including High Force waterfall and plan a day at Beamish Living Museum, Raby Castle, Hamsterley Forest, and spectacular Bowes Museum in Barnard Castle (30 miles).

Access to this light and airy, single-storey barn conversion is directly into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with doors leading out to the patio garden and wall to wall windows. Unwind and enjoy a cosy evening relaxing on comfortable sofas watching a movie on the smart TV with a cosy wood burner adding to the ambience. You can prepare your meals in the well-equipped kitchen with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and a dishwasher and sit together at the dining table. At bedtime, head down the hallway to find the two bedrooms, one with a king-size bed and a TV for leisurely lie-ins. The second bedroom has a double bed, a TV and an en-suite WC. The family bathroom has a freestanding bath, a separate shower, and WC.

Outside, extend your day in the south-facing, enclosed garden/patio with an outdoor table and seating for four, plus additional bench seating, and a fire pit/BBQ for al fresco dining. After a day's walking, relax in the hot tub which is located inside a converted stable at the end of the garden for your privacy and comfort. There is private, off-road parking for two cars. Please note the neighbouring sister cottage's hot tub (No. 3) is located in the stable next to this one.

Beautiful cottage, lovely friendly owner! Loved touches like the candles, the full log baskets, throws to snuggle up with etc. Really well equipped! Would like to have given 4.9 for comfort as cottage really is cosy and perfect, but not much sleep had as mattress was a bit hard for me, but that was the only negative & I guess that's personal choiceRead more. Otherwise, just a wonderful stay. Would definitely recommend! Hide

Excellent stay, lovely property, quiet and detached, really enjoyed our stay. We took our Cockapoo, it was a very dog friendly place, enclosed garden, very secure and lovely walks on the doorstep. Very nice host too, friendly and keen to make sure we had everything we needed. Will definitely recommend to others and will come again.
