Lovely cottage with everything you need. Unfortunately if you like to sit outside enjoying a warm evening with a cup of tea the neighbours won?t be happy. Although this is a holiday let for 9 people the neighbours obviously aren?t happy living next door to it. Please be aware of this when booking it!

Lovely cottage in beautiful location. Nicely equipped and cosy. We were 3 adults, 2 children and a dog. The hot tub was greatly enjoyed ,there was loads to do,with walks from the house. A lovely area to holiday and Peter, the owner, was a gem, and so helpful.

Cottage Review:  

Stayed here as a family of 6 (3 adults and 2 kids aged 14 and 12) during the Easter Holidays.

Welcome was good - Peter showed us around and made us feel welcome. The cottage itself has a lot of character and is in a very nice peaceful location. It was lovely to look out and not see properties everywhere just loads of sheep!

As a family we particularly loved the hot tub and fire. Wifi was also good enough for the kids to watch You Tube. We also liked the fact that it was nice and spacious.

Location of the cottage itself was good. If you like walking they are very close to High Falls and Low Falls. It made a good base for us to go out on day trips every day with many great places within a 1 to 1 1/2 hour drive.

We did have some negatives:

1. Most other cottages we have stayed in have included wood and coal etc for fires in the evening. An initial amount are provided but any more and you need to put money in an honesty box (which we did).

2. Although the cottage was very nice and warm, it is oil heating and the boiler took a few goes before lighting up (quite noisy). On a couple of occasions there was also a very toxic smell in the kitchen.

3. No extractor fan in the kitchen. Utensils in our opinion were also in need of updating. We had to buy a sharp knife for chopping and also after the first morning of attempting to use the frying pan, decided to buy one.

4. Shower pressure is very weak. The downstairs shower could not regulate temperature - it was either very cold or very hot. The en suite shower was okay but the pressure in the upstairs bathroom was also very weak.

5. On the first day we had to ring Peter to report a leak - water was dripping through the ceiling in the kitchen in a place that it had quite clearly leaked before. We later deduced that it was from the upstairs bathroom shower. Peter did offer to come round and have a look which is fair enough but we declined.

Overall we had a nice week away and the cottage served its purpose. However, we would not return as in our opinion there are nicer places to stay.

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
