Low Moss Cottage.
A cute and cosy, recently renovated, totally off-grid holiday cottage with dramatic and stunning views of Weardale. On a hill away from other houses and distractions, this 18th century cottage is the perfect place to gaze into the dark skies while cuddled up by the fire, or soak in the window side bath. Perfect for walkers, artists, photographers, writers, digital detoxers, honeymooners and anyone who wants to get away from it all.

The space
Stay in secluded , romantic holiday cottage situated in beautiful open moorland of Weardale.
You can relax by the log fire, enjoy the moorland views from a bath in the bedroom, or get out and explore the rugged countryside.
We are in dark skies area - all you need to do is turn off the lights and let your eyes adjust to the darkness. Enjoy the fantastic show from the comfort of the cosy cottage.

Not for the fainthearted! This cottage is perfect for the outdoorsy type who enjoy being cut off from the modern world. People who enjoy walking, cycling, reading, card or board games, writing , art...

Water is provided from a private source and is treated in the cottage and is tested regularly by Durham County Council to make sure it is safe to drink,
an extra tap is fitted in the kitchen which is ran from a reverse osmosis system providing water that is cleaner and more pure than bottled water.
The main water for the house is perfectly healthy, though be aware there could be a slight brown colour to the water during a rainy season...

Power is provided by a large battery bank and solar panels there is plenty of power for normal use but please note lack of sun or over use will result in the generator automatically starting, this usually last for up to 3 hours but cannot be heard within the property.

The cottage is remote - it sits in grounds of 6 acres which you are welcome to explore, and is accessed by a private track. This track is perfectly accessible in good weather if you make sure you stay in 1st gear! There are a couple of gates to open, so if you are scared of the cold, wet and mud this place probably isn't for you!

When the weather gets cold, there is a risk the track may freeze and you may not be able to drive back out up the hill - we ask that you check the weather forecast, and if there is a risk of snow or frost, please park your car at the top of the hill on the main road and walk up to the cottage. The walk is about 10-15 min.
