Hush Cottage is in the lovely Teesdale village of Middleton, a bustling community in the heart of a beautiful dale. There are many great walks of differing lengths and many good places to eat. The waterfalls at Low Force, High Force and Gibson's Cave are great.
The cottage is beautifully appointed and very tasteful. It is well equipped and extremely comfortable, a lovely retreat in which to relax. On arrival, we were amazed to find a very lovely hamper filled with all sorts of goodies. The owner is delightful and very helpful, and we had a great time.
A very clean well equipped cottage which suited us for a week break. An excellent welcome basket on arrival. We found it quiet and you can sit outside in a courtyard which gets the sun. A fridge, coffee machine, dishwasher, toaster and tvs up and downstairs. No freezer. Car has to be parked 100 yards away but there is always some space despite most houses not having parking facilities. Nice village with good eating and plenty of local walks for all abilities. We will return.
The cottage is clean comfortable and has most items required Lots of hot water plenty of sockets and every item inside was of a high quality.My car a Captur was able to drive through the small pathway to unload
Unfortunately the Village Idiot seems to live next door with a least 3 dogs who bark first thing in the morning 6,45am and last thing at night,whilst one of them came into the cottage
You look directly on to his garden which resembles a scrap yard and annoyingly he has a door that slams throughout a windy night
He looked into our lounge several times and finally had a petrol grass cutter on full blast outside the living room window (you can see there is only gravel outside ) I went outside and moved him on
We were unable to use the small table and chairs as there were 5 lumps of dog turds out side the door and the sight and smell made sitting out impossible
So a great place to visit with lots to see but we would not book this cottage again for the reasons given
A quaint little cottage for two with log fire and electric radiators, very comfortable. Parking tight to the door and stairs to the bedroom steep. When we arrived a hamper of goodies was waiting for us which we enjoined although we left the alcohol as we are tea-total.

Where to start? Good communication with owner in the run up to our holiday; directions, getting keys etc. The location is perfect; down a pretty lane just off the main street, so it's quiet yet close to all the village amenities (Co-op, craft shop, book shop,ironmongers,several lovely cafes, tearooms as well as pubs, hotels and French restaurant. The cottage itself is lovely; very tastefully decorated and stylishly furnished, a treat for label spotters, but everyone will appreciate the quality of everything from the kitchen sink to the bedding. The owner had included so many thoughtful touches, Hush Cottage isn't so much a self-catering cottage, more like a high-end serviced apartment. Best of all was the generous Welcome Basket.(Won't spoil the surprise by divulging contents.)
