“Lovely Relaxing Break with a Very Handy and Excellent Pub!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Nicely situated in meadowland not overlooked by anyone so very peaceful, property well equipped - perhaps 3 piece suite could do with replacing but otherwise extremely happy with all the facilities - lovely area to explore i.e. Beamish Museum and of course Durham. Just a 2 minute walk to The Black Horse which we visited on each night and ate there on two occasions, the food was excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful.
Would highly recommend to anyone thinking of staying in that area

“A BEAUTIFUL COTTAGE SPOILT AND UNLOVED!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

person found this review helpful

I booked this what looked like fabulous cottage for my 60th birthday, picked up keys for the pub cottage is reached over a very bad track from the pub, no handover! Outside the cottage is untendered dirty and grass growing out of the paving stones! On entering it looked very nice, until you looked close. It was not cleaned! the floors are dusty, work tops smeared the microwave/fridge grubby and the dishwasher needs a health warning, it made me feel sick when I opened it, the cutlery we pick out all needed washing. The bathroom was no better, dirty floor with human hairs, also in the bath long hairs and the shower screen on the seal had never seen any bleach! we had to set too and clean some areas so we could be happy to stay! The conservitary had candle wax all over the floor and dead flies everywere.
The bedrooms were acceptable with clean bedding and towels.
I used to be a holiday cottage owner and this was bad for the prices charged.
Grace [--] does not communicate very well and I have not had any follow up from my complaint as yet.
It's a shame as we love the area and would have used it again.

“Enchanting, Wonderful, Amazing Cottage & Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Huckleberry Cottage is in the middle of a wonderful meadow, in an amazing quiet location. It is wonderfully decorated, with quality bedding, throws, cushions and tiles. Leather furniture in the living room and a wonderful fully fitted kitchen, and everything you will need in it. The beds are very comfortable. It is lovely to open the front door to just a huge meadow field and with plenty of out door seating, or just take a blanket and sit on the grass. So lovely to be able to take my dog with me, I have a Great Dane and there was plenty room for him to move around and the wonderful meadow to run on every day. The Black Horse pub is only 5 minutes up the bank with wonderful food and great staff. Great location to visit Museums, Shops, forests or just walk. Can't wait to book and visit again, I am sure it will be my UK holiday location for many years to come :)

“Lovely spot!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Set right in the middle of a meadow, with wonderful views and a few minutes stroll from a friendly pub. Generally very well equipped, warm, cosy and comfortable. Bedrooms are on the small side but you don't spend too much time in those. Our dog loved the freedom of a big field to run about in, but the gate to the road doesn't seem to function, so if your dog has a tendency to wander, you would need to be aware. All in all, we had a great week and were sad to leave. So why 4 stars instead of 5? Cleaning could have been better in some areas and the sticking drawers in the bedside tables drove us mad. Information book could have been a bit more comprehensive - a list of local walks/local map perhaps. And maybe some very basic provisions in the fridge on arrival - a pint of milk for example - would be nice as there are no shops nearby. But just minor things really - not enough to put anyone off.
