Owners of Owl Cottage Holiday Let in the Durham Dales

Welcome to our website!

We’re Claire and Mike, your hosts and Owners of Owl Cottage holiday let in the Durham Dales.

We take pride in being highly professional, helpful, and approachable owners who are dedicated to ensuring our guests have an exceptional holiday experience.

With 13 years of experience in the hospitality industry, we have honed our skills and expertise to create unforgettable stays for our valued guests. 

From the moment you arrive until the time you depart, we go above and beyond to cater to your needs, providing personalised assistance and making your comfort our top priority. 

Trust in our years of hosting experience, and allow us to exceed your expectations as we craft memorable moments for you to cherish.

By day Mike is usually asleep and by night is a Shift Leader at a local Steel Foundry on Teesside where he’s worked for the past 25 years, and me, Claire, well you’ll find me most days trekking the local beauty spots of Norton where we live, usually with a few dogs in tow and not just our own dogs, Tai and Elsie.  I gave up my desk job as an Assistant Accountant 7 years ago to become a dog walker and home boarder, and I love it.

However, skip back 12 years when we embarked on our journey turning the cutest little, slightly unloved Cottage into what is now our beautiful, cosy, home away from home retreat, where you can enjoy the luxury of modern facilities, yet dwell in its original character and charm.

It hasn’t all been plain sailing, let me tell you.

Like the time we just had started our renovations.  As you do, work all week at your day job and DIY all weekend … No … well maybe just us then.  We packed up our tools for the weekend, headed home to return the following weekend, you get the picture … only to discover the pipe from the header tank in the loft had been leaking for a week!  Soul destroying!

Nevertheless, we fixed it, moved on, and all the blood, sweat and tears (literally) were definitely worth it, as what we have created for our guests is a little piece of heaven!

Is your passion to explore the great outdoors?  Simply step outside and spend the day exploring the miles of open heather moorland.

On a clear Winter’s evening gaze upward to see star clusters sparkle like diamonds on black velvet, the Milky Way majestically arching across the sky, and if you’re very lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of the northern lights.

Owl Cottage holiday let in the Durham Dales has everything you’ll need to wind down and de-stress, so don’t stress about who’s doing the cooking, meander into the village and enjoy the freshest local ingredients in one of two excellent dog friendly pubs.

Now, give yourself a treat and click to see when your next holiday is available.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
