This stunning and spacious cottage offers views of an imposing 12th century castle and is ideally situated for the Yorkshire Dales, North Pennines,  Durham Cathedral, and Northumberland.

This lovely brick cottage sleeps eleven across five bedrooms. Its large walled garden and first floor loft conversion with additional living space – perfect for games – make it a must for a family gathering that's all about enjoying each other's company in the comfort of a home from home property. A beautiful rural area, Walworth is a small scattered village with a magnificent castle at its heart. Walworth Castle can be seen from the property, and at less than half a mile away is a fabulous local attraction to have on the doorstep. The Birds of Prey Centre inside its grounds regularly host flying displays. To satisfy a sweet tooth, there is also Archers Ice Cream Parlour less than a mile up the road, a working farm which produces exquisite handmade ice cream.

The elegantly furnished lounge is a great place to relax in, whether to read a book, watch a film, or simply to chat in after a hearty meal. If it's a warm day, you can extend the space into the garden: unfold the patio doors on the end wall, and step straight out onto the decked area. The kitchen/diner is a bright and sociable space for cooking and eating, and with the flexibility of merging the indoor and outdoor space via the lounge's patio doors, there's certainly the option of taking the party (and the food!) outside onto the picnic benches in the walled garden. Four of the five bedrooms are also on the ground floor, including the master double which boasts its own TV and en-suite wet room, and a bunk bedroom ideal for kids. There's also a family bathroom where you can enjoy a hot soak after a day exploring, before heading to bed. The first-floor loft conversion includes a spacious twin room and en-suite, as well as an open space where the group can play games, or younger guests can have their own area to relax in.

John was very helpful and friendly and the cottage was ideal for 4 adults and 2 dogs. The enclosed garden was a must for us but the large house also provided space for everyone to do their thing. Hotel next door, really good meals and not far to travel. Archers ice cream a short walk up the road for lovely creamy ice creams.

We had a great stay at the cottage - it is very spacious and easily accommodated the 9 of us. The children loved the upstairs games room/bedroom and massive enclosed garden (as did the dog!).

Overall a good experience, with lots of amenities. The price for the size is of property was great for the 3 families that stayed and the children loved the garden. The property is a little tired and could do with some TLC.

This was superb for Bella (the dog). Having a huge space for her to run around safely was just lovely to see. The castle next door was gorgeous and we spent a few enjoyable hours there with coffees and drinks. The property is a bit older than the photos suggest but as a family, we just loved all the space and togetherness under one roof. EverythingRead more you could possibly need has been made available. I would recommend for people who want a peaceful break from the hussle and bussel of life. Hide
