This was all I had hoped it would be, charming, olde worlde surroundings, the converted barn we stayed in was "Dairy Cottage" which was the renovated & modern self catering. The owners, June & Frank also showed us round all the self catering units, and the B&B in the main farmhouse. Everything was superb, a mix of farmhouse, modern, and olde worlde charm. We visited many of the surrounding area, including the fantastic shops in newcastle and durham. Buit we really want to visit again in the summer so that we can take advantage of the walks in the beautiful countryside.
If you are single, a couple or a family the there is something for you here. June and Frank offer warmth and hospitality in a world that is sadly lacking in the good old fashioned manners and kindness.
It was my birthday and I enjoyed it immensly.
Thank you June & Frank.xxx
