On a arrival is was due to snow, we were greeted by the owner who was very nice and cheerful, she showed us around to the house and was greeted by a roaring log fire, so warm and cosy after a 3 hour drive! the house its self was very impressive and had a very tasteful and modern look. All the facilities were fab all of which had a good cleanliness. during our stay at bridge house the owner made every attempt to make sure we had a comfortable and easy stay, She made odd check up to make sure we had plenty of logs and were warm enough. The owner was also on hand to give you local advise on anything including take away's, local shops and places to go walking. the place its self is very remote and peace full, if you are wanting lots of countryside and walks its ideal! if you want shops bars ect Newcastle is a good hour away which can be a headache. On th plus side Durham is only 28min away. Overall this an excellent country retreat, would definitely go again but with more family and friends. A++
Myself, wife, two daughters and my Inlaws spent a week in this spacious & contemporary cottage with more than enough room for 6 people. Huge TV with full sky package for cosy evenings in. Situated beside the babbling beck with ducks a plenty. We found it to be in a fantastic location with beautiful drives across the dales within minutes. The village of Wolsingham has lots to offer for families with a playing field & fantastic park. A local Spar shop for the essentials (larger supermarkets are a bit of a drive). Good Chinese takeaway that will deliver to the door. Circular walks from the door. Hamsterley forest is on the doorstep & definitely worth a visit. Although we had a 5 hours drive, it was well worth it. I'd like to take the opportunity to thank the owner Pam for your hospitality. The girls loved being there too. See you again soon X
Spotless house with extra luxuries which really made our stay. Good outside space which the kids loved (Swing and flat lawn). New kitchen with a washer and loads of room. Lounge area very comfortable with a giant TV! loads of blu rays provided plus sky movies. For a house with such a vast open internal space, its very warm. We didnt use the log burner as the central heating was toasty. Beds were very comfy and the bathrooms very clean. Pamela is a lovely host - friendly and around if needed. The location is great with cafe's, pub and shop within about 150 meters. We enjoyed food in the pub (huge portions) and the chippy too. Indian about 9 miles away delivers for a few quid. The house is ideally located to explore Yorkshire, Northumberland and Durham. You could stay here for 2 weeks and not run out of things to do. Great!
