    Condo/Apartment – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4
    The Terrace Cottage is a charming stone built 2 bedroom cottage with original features and a really cosy feel set in a terrace of C19 mining dwellings. It has been recently refurbished to a high standard, and was newly opened for bookings for 2014 and the reviews so far seem to show we got the recipe about right. As the owners, we use the cottage regularly and our objective has been to make it as comfortable as possible so have made sure the furnishings and linens are to a standard we would expect!! You can see more on RookhopeCottage website.

    Set in the village of Rookhope in upper Weardale, you are in the heart of the Pennines, which gives amazing walking, cycling and touring opportunities. There are plenty of places to visit nearby and within a few minutes drive, from Hadrian's Wal...

Nice accommodation finished to good standard, good communication with owner, ideal for access to cycle routes or walking, remote enough to get away but close enough to various pubs and stores if required. All on one floor so good for those with limited mobility. more

Management response:

Many thanks for the review. We try hard to make sure our guests have a good experience and its good to hear we're getting it right. more

A beautiful cottage furnished to the highest standards. An ideal place to escape the hustle and bustle of every day life and recharge your batteries. Fantastic views and a short stroll from the village post office and pub. more

Stayed for 4 nights, with my husband and two boys 10 years and 7 years, perfect location with lots to do in the area. The cottage had all we needed and much, much more......finished to a high standard. Warm, cosy and welcoming. We loved the log burner in the evenings, our only wish was that we could have stayed longer!!!.... more

Management response:

We're glad you liked our cottage and that you and the boys enjoyed exploring the area. We look forward to welcoming you back sometime soon for a longer break. more
