Sleeps up to 5 . A charming, cosy traditional cottage dating back to 1870 in the small hamlet of Fir Tree, Crook. Although almost 200 years old, it has been mostly modernised inside to give modern conveniences along with retaining charm and character. 2 pub/restaurants in the hamlet serving excellent food. Although situated on the A68, the main road to Edinburgh, the cottage itself is a haven of tranquility with double glazing throughout. I live 3 miles away but am always on hand if needed.
Our house, Whispering Waters, contains a private, contemporary two-room apartment suite, with its own private access via an exclusive south-facing deck, 21 mtrs above the tree-lined River Tees. Lying in bed, it's as if you’re in a treehouse with the treetops visible outside the window. Situated in Lower Teesdale (on the A67, between Barnard Castle and Darlington - around 7 miles/11km from each), Whispering Waters is a house without neighbours, immediately adjacent to, and above the River Tees.
A charming, dog friendly holiday home full of character, an ideal base for exploring the surrounding areas. Set on the edge of a quiet rural village with immediate access to public footpaths, it boasts an abundance of places to visit and explore. And with a large multi fuel stove or a short stroll to the local pub, it's the perfect way to escape a busy life-style. Perfectly suited for families, couples, friends, walkers and cyclists alike, and all four legged furry friends are more than welcome!
