    About this property

    This romantic retreat is the perfect base from which to explore the area, with plenty of footpaths and walkways close by.
    Situated in the peaceful and quaint village of Romaldkirk, which is nestled within the Dales, this detached barn conversion, adjacent to the owner’s home, really is the perfect location for guests wishing to enjoy a quiet romantic break, a walking or cycling holiday, or just to really explore the beauty of the surrounding areas. Nestled between Swaledale and Weardale, Romaldkirk lies in Teesdale, which is a peaceful haven of tranquillity, nature and ever changing landscapes. Perfect for walkers, The Dovecote is right at the heart of many established public footpaths and walkways. Ideal for walkers of all abilities, there is some stunning scenery and leisurely strolls along the side of the river to more taxing trails along the rugged fells. The Teesway footpath is easily accessible and takes guests through to the village of Cotherstone and beyond, or maybe head towards Mickleton and then even further afield towards Middleton-in-Teesdale. Other walks lead towards the reservoirs of Grassholme or across towards Hury. In the heart of Romaldkirk is an award-winning pub and restaurant, so why not enjoy a lovely meal on the walk back towards the property. A little further afield, guests will be able to leave their car behind at the Bowlees Visitor Centre and then walk along to two of the most incredible waterfalls in the area, Low Force and High Force. This is also an ideal spot for guests who are wanting a more peaceful holiday with the chance to visit and explore some of the local historic attractions and National Trust properties, there are many to visit in the area. Egglestone Hall and Gardens is just 2 miles away, Bowes Museum is 6 miles, and definitely an attraction worth a visit, Raby Castle with it’s famous deer that graze in the grounds, is 12 miles. Barnard Castle, 6 miles, is a historic market town that offers a quaint high street that is bustling with antiques shops, restaurants, bistros and cafes. 30 miles away, guests will be able to take a day trip to the city of Durham, where there are boutiques, shops, restaurants, bistros and also a theatre and leisure centre. Take a day trip to the beautiful scenery of the Lake District which is a mere 45-mile drive away. Shop 4½ miles, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    "We had such a great stay at the Dovecote. It was beautifully decorated, really warm and the biggest bed I’ve ever seen. The pictures don’t do the cottage justice, it was more than we could imagine and we really recommend it."

    "Lovely homely cottage in a beautiful area, close to some great reservoir, river and waterfall walks. Shops not far (in next village to local one) and excellent local pubs less than half a mile walk. Even having the bathroom downstairs didn't cause any problems and anyway the superb shower made up for that. The super king bed was very comfy and the kitchen was well equipped. Would definitely return. Lots more to see that we didn't get done."
