Teesdale & Durham Dales cottages
Much of this beautiful area of England lies within the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and is bordered by the Yorkshire Dales to the south. It is a great location for a holiday for those who love stunning natural landscapes and yet want to be away from the hustle and bustle of the more popular areas.
The main towns are Barnard Castle and Middleton-in-Teesdale, both of which are market towns and offer a variety of facilities, shops and restaurants. Local attractions include Raby Castle, Bowes Museum and Killhope, the North of England Lead Mining Museum.
