Step back in time and embrace traditionalism when staying in this County Durham holiday home. A peaceful haven for walkers, cyclists or those wishing to just sit and enjoy the views, this country cottage is a traditional stone property in the rural North Pennines, 2 miles from the nearest village with pubs and shops. Owing to its remote location, mobile signal is variable when staying here, offering you the chance to really switch off from the outside world. A unique destination for extremely restful stays, this former miner's cottage sleeps four guests and two dogs, ideal for two couples on a hiking retreat with canine company.

Ornate décor and traditional design elements make this cosy house a home - step inside and put your feet up. The kitchen/diner is well-equipped with everything you need to prepare a hearty breakfast or a delicious dinner, sustenance to keep you going throughout all your daily adventures. After dinner, retire to the lounge and get cosy with the fire on and the Smart TV displaying your favourite show. Move through the property to reach two bedrooms on the first floor, each one with comforting soft furnishings and a comfy mattress. Finally, there are two spaces to sit outdoors, the bistro set out front and the picnic bench area to the side of the property.

Mighty fells sit waiting to be explored in this vibrant area of the North Pennines AONB, so set off from your front door to discover Bolts Law (5 miles), Horseshoe Hill (5 miles) and all of the wild moorlands that exist between them. Just past the village of Baybridge (2 miles), the Derwent Reservoir (4 miles) offers waymarked pathways for waterfront walks, a sailing club for on-the-water adventures and plenty of fish just waiting to be caught.

We have had a lovely time at Bolt Burn, the cottage is very cosy and clean with everything you need. The owners were very welcoming and the amazing welcome hamper was very much appreciated. There are walks from the door or enjoy the peaceful large garden which is well kept. We would definitely return thank you for a lovely stay.

Fantastic welcoming host with a very generous starter hamper. Would highly recommend a stay at this country cottage for anyone wanting to get away from it all in Northumberland. Hope to return soon.
