Highly recommended. The cottages and surrounds are built to a high standard, which will surely pay dividends in satisfied customers and repeat bookings. We can't remember staying in a better property. We stayed in Stables 1 which was perfect for our needs, welcoming and warm. My wife is from Consett, so we are very familiar with the area, and being huge fans of the nearby Knitsley Farm Shop the location couldn't have been better. We had good weather as it happened, but I'd imagine even in winter the cottages would be sheltered from the wind, and quite cosy. We can't think of a better cottage that we've visited. The owners have invested more than most in the cottages and surrounds, which provided us with a 1st class stay. We can't remember staying in a better property.
