"I stayed at Kestrel Cottage with my 96 year old mother in law. I had chosen the property for its wetroom, bedrooms all on one level and it's proximity to Durham. The cottage far exceeded all my expectations. It is much bigger than the photographs suggest, bathrooms, hallways and living area are very spacious. Everything is very new, tasteful and not worn out or shabby. The beds are really comfortable and the linen is good quality.The main living room is south facing so it's light, and bright. The views from the two full length windows are stunning, open fields and countryside. We were visited every morning by two friendly goats at the fence by the patio. Most afternoons we watched parachuters descending to an area about a half a mile away. All most entertaining.We could park at the door which was very helpful as my mother in law couldn't walk too far. In the wetroom there are handles to aid the not so steady. The owner kindly brought us a proper shower seat too, which was so useful.Even though very early in the year we found a lot to do in the area. Durham is nearby, we went several times. I highly recommend the Oriental Museum, we visited the botanical garden, cathedral and castle. The Hartlepool maritime museum was excellent. We went to Gateshead quay. Just a couple of miles away we went to the big outlet shopping centre and the coastal towns and coast road are on the doorstep. All this to do, and then at the end of a busy day out the cottage was a relaxing, warm and welcoming home to come back to.Jean the owner was friendly and helpful, she lives nearby but wasn't intrusive at all. The welcome pack was extremely generous, including eggs, bread, milk. Kestrel Cottage was an excellent choice for our holiday and we were delighted with everything we found there."

"I seldom review holiday accommodation, however I feel impelled to do so with S14792 for several reasons. I include both positive and negative points in my review. Overall, I feel S14792 is over-priced for what is offered and that the emphasis on comfort is somewhat overplayed, and I do not deem it to be 'romantic' as advertised in some locations online. For this price range, I expect more in terms of the decor, the quality of the fixtures and fittings, as well as a more effective heating system and the presence of a small welcome such as a pint of local milk or loaf of local bread. The wood burner is simply not enough to heat both the main room and the water during winter. I would also illustrate that I am happy to put on layers and heat my own home in an environmentally conscious way, but given the price and that I was on a much-needed break, a more effective or indeed efficient heating system should be present. I hold the view that being environmentally friendly need not compromise ones comfort, but at S14792 this is the case. At this price point, I would simply not recommend this accommodation to friends or family, as you will have a more comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable stay elsewhere. Positive points include that the property is less than an hours drive from Newcastle upon Tyne, there is a co-op supermarket within walking distance and a good local pub which serves a very good Sunday lunch. Up to two dogs are allowed in the accommodation and the owner can provide additional sheets or blankets for furniture. Furthermore, the owners of the property are knowledgeable about the local area."

"We booked this delightful property for a family celebration - my mum’s 70th birthday. We chose it mainly because it was just a three-hour drive for everyone (we are fairly far-flung, residing in North Wales, Nottingham and Edinburgh) - and we were thrilled to discover how lovely it was. The location is superb: Bishop Middleham is a quiet village, but it does have two pubs - and there is a well-signposted circular walk (about 3 ½ miles) that really shows off the area. It’s a bit muddy, but worth the muck! Durham is a short drive away, and we enjoyed exploring its picturesque centre.The property itself is near-perfect. There were eight of us - and the two teenagers certainly appreciated having their own single bedrooms up in the eaves. Two of the double bedrooms are very spacious; the third is much smaller but still adequate, and all are beautifully decorated. The shower is great - I really appreciate a hot, powerful shower. None of us made use of the enormous bathtub, but it lends the place a real sense of luxury.The communal areas are all ideal - the living rooms large and comfortable, and the kitchen accessible and well-stocked. The garden is a particular delight; we enjoyed sitting outside for coffee, even when it was raining.We also appreciated the cakes that were waiting for us on arrival. Yum.Would we recommend S88932 to others? Yes, without hesitation. In fact, we’ve already booked a return visit."

"We have just stayed at S37795 for 10 days and could quite happily have extended our holiday. The kitchen, although small, is well kitted out including a washing machine and full sized fridge freezer plus all utensils. The bed was super comfy, plus bedroom had full length mirror and a good amount of hangers in the wardrobe, which is fab. The lounge was quite cosy with lots of lovely finishing touches and a nice little conservatory all gave a homely feel. Our only gripe was the parking! Although it states that there is designated parking for the cottage in the description, this is mostly taken up by customers going to the pub right opposite, or customers parking right outside the kitchen window, which felt quite intrusive. But we would definitely stay here again, as this is not a major issue, but I feel it should be mentioned. As I say, we would absolutely stay at S37795 again and definitely recommend it"

"This is a stunning holiday home. Lots of attention to detail to make you feel very welcome. Incredibly clean throughout. The massive bath is awesome (take lots of bubble bath!) and the kitchen is vey well equipped. The downstairs shower is also really good. There is a really great play park 3 minutes walk round the corner. The outside area is perfect for dogs and there is an great outhouse for doing laundry. The two pubs have friendly locals. A large supermarket is 5 mins drive away in the lovely village of Sedgefield. Durham is about a 20 minutes drive away and well worth visiting. The Cross keys pub up the road offers a great menu and a pool table. Plenty of room for parking in the village if you have more than one car. To be honest there is nothing negative to say about this home. We have stayed in many cottages over the years and this is definitely the best."
