Owl Cottage is a one-off Durham Dales lovers’ retreat, as cosy as a fireside chat on a snowy night. Stretch your legs over heather-clad hills, then come home to wiggle your toes in front of the fire, pop a cork, and snuggle down to romantic evenings binging a box set on the smart TV.

Middleton-in-Teesdale seems to belong to a time of bright-red phone boxes, of doffed caps, and of pubs, restaurants and cafés with all the time in the world for you. Owl Cottage sits on the edge of this gentle bustle, right by Raby Woods, where Hudeshope Beck beckons your boots.

Relax and reconnect with your special someone in a land of castles, waterfalls, and reservoirs, claimed only by hardy hikers who’ve kept their secret hushed. Where Dark Skies at night are a multiplying canopy of fireworks. And where you’re lulled into deep sleep by our resident owl.

Owl Cottage is a hoot.
