Great location with super local walks alongside the river Wear which passes through the village. There is also a highly recommended walk up to the nearby disused lead mine - watch out for deer on the hillside as you walk beside the stream. If you have children then there is a…

Beautiful large house, with all the home comforts. We used the house as a base to take part in the Great North Run & it was perfect. Plenty of room for 10 of us plus 2 dogs, Martin & his house keeper Anita couldn’t have been more accommodating. It is a real home from home.

We had a lovely stay in this cosy clean home. There was plenty of room for 7 adults and great value for money. We enjoyed the pub, which was directly across the road from the property and tasted the local brew Weardale ale. We visited Killhope Mines, 15 minutes drive from Black…
