Refurbished Glen Cottage is situated in the picturesque village of Mickleton in Upper Teesdale in the North Pennines Area of Ooutstanding Natural Beauty just off the Pennine Way Walk and close to High Force Waterfall. Glen Cottage is the end cottage of a terrace and can accommodate up to three couples, or a family in a two bed cottage with linked twin bed barn with stunning views from the bedroom. Comprising dual aspect living/dining room, modern kitchen, spacious en-suite master bedroom, second queen-sized bedroom (also ideal for children with Winnie the Pooh duvet and pictures, family bathroom and Barn with twin room. Whilst connected to the Cottage via the link porch it is some distance from the main cottage bedrooms for audible supervision so we would not recommend children younger than say eight stay there independently.
Mickleton village boasts one acclaimed restaurant and a separate pub which does fabulous bar meals.
Other excellent local eateries are located within 2-4 miles of the cottage. A well stocked supermarket is found in Middleton-in-Teesdale just 2 miles away.
The cottage resides within a beautiful rural farming community. Barnard Castle on the river Tees is a 15 minute drive to visit the famous Bowes Museum, its castle ruins and the weekly markets and is home to many lovely restaurants, pubs, and individual shops. Further up Teesdale are scenic walks along the river passing over the Wynch bridge via the beautiful low force waterfall cascades before rising to the majestic High Force Waterfall, a walk not to be missed. 2 miles up the valley side is the scenic Grassholm reservoir and sailing club. Many other beautiful walks and cycle rides abound over the fells in all directions. The Yorkshire Dales National Park is within a 40 minute drive or the beautiful cathedral city of Durham in a similar time.
Even the Yorkshire Moors National park or the Lake District National Park can both be visited for a day trip so handy is its central location on the Pennines. Raby Castle and Deer Park is a 20 minute drive.
Full information is supplied at the cottage to help you get the best from your visit and the locals are usually ever helpful in sharing their beautiful world with visitors. Mickleton is about a 20 mins drive from the A66 trans Pennine route and a local bus stop 100 yards from the cottage links the village with Middleton-in-Teesdale and Barnard Castle on a circular route and stops every hour in both directions. Many scenic drives complement all the cycle and walking routes in this picturesque but sometimes challenging landscape of Hannah Hauxwell fame
