Wolsingham is a pleasant village in Weardale and Dipper Cottage is in an excellent location for visiting most of what County Durham and the Wear Valley have to offer.
Dipper Cottage is within walking distance of the local shops and amenities and we made two visits to the Italian Restaurant, which is roughly a seven minute walk away.
We enjoyed the quirkiness of the cottage - beautiful period fireplaces, colourful rugs and polished floorboards were a joy, as were the comfortable beds!
All in all, we had a great week in Wolsingham and fell in love with Dipper Cottage.
Every year I return to Co Durham with my husband and three children for our holiday and to spend time with my extended family. We are therefore not the typical tourists, visiting tourist spots or local restaurants. The cottage was perfect for our needs, providing us with exceedingly comfortable beds and very importantly (well, for my boys) Wi-Fi. The cottage was well equipped and very clean. Wolsingham is well served for shops and other amenities. The surrounding area is stunning, with plenty of things to do should you wish. Definitely a good choice for somewhere to stay.
Dipped Cottage is clean, comfortable, and dog friendly.
Although the owner is available if needed we were not bothered.
Wolsingham is a nice friendly village with plenty to do,
We enjoyed ourselves.
Very clean very nice cottage. Steep stairs, shower in bath so if you have leg problems could be difficult.
Lovely, cosy little cottage close to shops and cafe's in Wolsingham. All within walking distance. Spotlessly clean and nicely furnished. Big TV in the lounge with comfy chairs and sofa. Large fridge freezer in kitchen with electric fan oven and gas hob for cooking if you choose. Shower over bath with lashings of hot water. Upstairs, two lovely bedrooms, the double we used was a lovely comfy bed. Off street parking at the back, although tight for a large car like ours, there's ample parking on the road so not a problem in any way. The owner Mary was excellent with communication and all information we needed clearly explained.
We had a lovely and would definitely hope to return again at some point. Thank You.
Wolsingham is a lovely little village with all the appropriate facilities to suit all. Whether you are an experienced walker or just like to just sit back and relax the surrounding village offers that.
Dipper cottage provides what it says, a lovely little cottage with self catering facilities. There are local shops, fish and chip shop and a Chinese. Also the local pub provides lovely lunches. Not forgetting to mention the Italian restaurant.
If you prefer to go totally self service then that is possible too. The cottage provides that facility.
My only criticism would be to confirm check out time.
