We were really impressed by the cottage and it's beautiful location. Lovely and spacious with some really modern aspects. All facilities and amenities superb. We used hoodgill as a base to explore the surrounding area including the low & highforce falls, near by Durham and a farm park a few miles away.
A visit to Bowless visitor centre would be worthwhile, even for a tea/coffee and cake! We walked to the high force which would have been more pleasant had we not had babies in buggies! It was a real challenge which I wouldn't do again! Despite being warned it wasn't buggy friendly we made the journey anyway, it was a beautiful area and would highly recommend for others (suitably prepared) to venture there! We can laugh about it now!!
My only comment would be about the 10pm hot tub curfew, it's not a criticism and I can understand why it's in place it's just that 9 or 10 would usually be the ideal time to relax once kids are in bed and that meant we didn't get to use very much during our stay.
Overall would highly recommend to others.
Beautiful cottage with loads of thoughtful extra touches! Brilliant views and the hot tub is lovely! Peter the owner was so helpful and friendly!
Would highly recommend this cottage!
We needed a cottage for a family 50th birthday celebration. We came from all over the UK.
The location is convenient for the M6 and the A1M but is in a quiet beautiful area.
The bedrooms one ensuite the others with bathrooms adjoining.The kitchen is well equipped, a comfy lounge with wood burner a big dinning room with a garden room.
Leading to a hot tub.
Walk out of the back garden to High Force,Low Force waterfalls and Gibsons Cave three amazing sights within this area of outstanding natural beauty.
I spent a fantastic long weekend with 5 of my girl friends enjoying the fabulous amenities that Hoodgill Barn had to offer. Peter was so helpful from the minute I contacted him to the end of our stay. The weather was pretty awful all weekend but the wood burning stove and hot tub made it a real joy to snuggle up warm and enjoy a weekend of relaxation. I highly recommend families and a group of friends to enjoy this lovely holiday home and it's beautiful surroundings. We have already said that we will be back!
Wow!!! from the moment Sharon and her hubby checked in Peter was very helpful and informative with the cottage and surrounding areas. Myself and family arrived to simply be amazed by this property. It's roomy, clean and has everything you need home from home. So much so we've already booked for next year. (we would usually always look a new property ) Thanks Peter for everything.
stayed at Hoodgill Barn for a long weekend. On arrival we were met by Peter, the owner, who was very friendly and showed us around. The cottage itself is extremely comfortable with lots of lovely touches. Home from home. The hot tub was great for relaxing and there was seating in the garden (round picnic table and 2 benches. The sunroom allows you to enjoy that outside but in feeling if the weather is cool. The village of Middleton in Teesdale is nearby and has shops, coffee shops and a few bars. Can recommend the Teesdale Hotel for very reasonably priced lovely Sunday roast. The town of Barnard Castle is larger if more choice is needed. The High Force waterfall is outstanding to see. A perfect location for a relaxing break
