Our second visit to Parkview this year and we had another lovely holiday. Its a warm and cosy cottage which was great as the weather was inclement. Well equipped cottage with comfortable beds and not too far from the usual tourist places. We did take a trip to Barnard Castle which was further afield. Lovely northern town.
