The cottage was last the home of a bibliophile and archaeologist and we have retained many of his extensive selection of books. It has been sympathetically renovated and recently redecorated.
The village road carries dales traffic to and fro and Mickleton and is served by public transport. We have two local pubs within a short walk, our favourite, The Crown, serving particularly delicious food with friendly service.

There is immediate footpath access to the Teesdale Way, and this, in turn, can lead to longer walks, on the Pennine way or in the surrounding hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural beauty. Or visit High Force, a spectacular waterfall, surrounded by the stunning countryside of Upper Teesdale. A variety of animal and plant life can be seen throughout the seasons, from a vast array of wildflowers, ferns and towering trees, to roe deer and rabbits.
