Standing alone in a beautiful sheltered location, surrounded by pine trees, this cottage offers peace and tranquillity for a relaxing break away from the stress of modern life. This region is part of the North Pennines, known as England’s Last Wilderness. It is a paradise for walkers and mountain bikers with numerous paths and trails to delight all abilities. The stunning countryside provides the perfect habitat for an abundance of wildlife. Deer and rabbits can often be seen wandering around the garden of the cottage. A short drive is Derwent Reservoir, the second largest reservoir in the North East.
The south-western area has been managed as a nature reserve since 1967 with a diverse range of breeding birds and wildfowl. The reservoir is stocked with rainbow and brown trout.
