The cottage is remarkably spacious and very well equipped and decorated. Really cosy thanks to the heating + wood burner. Although it's on the main street, it was really quiet and there's no noise from the very good pub a few doors down.
Weardale itself is beautifully wild, we saw a salmon from the footbridge over the Wear just round the back. Some great walks, especially High Force and Cauldron Snout ( over in Teesdale).
I'm sure we'll be back .
