Wow! What an absolute stunner! We love love love this place and cannot recommend it highly enough. If you are looking for a quiet retreat where you could simply hide away if you wanted to then this is it. No humans or properties on the doorstep only wildlife and farm life. Everything you could possibly need has been catered for. The underfloor heating and stone flooring is gorgeous, the sofas are lovely and Comfy, the fire literally roars, the kitchen is fully loaded and includes a wine cooler too. The bedrooms are gorgeous too with the addition of the roll top bath in the main bedroom where I sunk in and read my book that was set on the over bath shelf with book holder no less. Listening to the nightlife while sitting in the hot tub under the stars with or without lighting is so relaxing we can't wait to return. The welcome extras that are provided by Mandy and Dave are a really nice touch too and I especially loved watching, through the full length lounge window, the little lambs frolicking in the field. Next time we will have to venture out and explore the aonb on offer.
The cottage was even more beautiful than expected from the photos. It was spotlessly clean and so well equipped. The arrival pack was amazing and we felt so cared for! The environment surrounding the cottage is simply breathtaking, nothing to be heard but the sounds of all the many different birds . We enjoyed the hot tub immensely, especially star gazing in the completely dark skies. The Teesdale area was such a pleasant surprise, we walked some of the pennine way which is right on the doorstep. We only live an hour away and yet never knew this beautiful place existed. We will definitely be back.
Just back to the real world after a fantastic week at The Aspens. The cottage was just what we needed after the first half of 2020. Peaceful, secluded and perfect to get away from it all. Weather was kind for the end of September and we got lots of use from the Hot Tub. I'm sure the local villages are lovely, but to be honest we didn't explore much! Great walks from the door and the cosy atmosphere meant we felt no real urge to wander further afar. Maybe we'll be back again to actually see the area!
We stayed at The Aspens in Autumn 2019 and had a lovely time. The thought and attention to detail ensured we had a wonderful stay. Thanks so much for a great week, we will be back. Sue and John Brown.
