TripAdvisor CERTIFICATE of EXCELLENCE achieved November 2017. This one bedroomed 17th Century holiday Cottage is especially designed for a romantic get away for couples in mind.

Reviewed 5 December 2017 for a stay in November 2017

A cosy cottage down a short lane in an historical area of Ebchester. The owners are very thoughtful supplying a bottle of wine on arrival and some essential food. The cottage was lovely and warm - very welcome after a day out in November. We would love to visit it again and would recommend it to friends.

Thank you so much for your lovely 5 Star review, it is very much appreciated and valued. I am pleased you both enjoyed your stay. It's so handy to have the Derwent Inn just a short walk away, to have a lovely relaxing meal and drinks. I wonder whether you found any lovely pieces of sea glass in Seaham, there...
