Middleton in Teesdale cottages
With its characterful white-washed cottages, village green and traditional tea room and shops, Middleton-in-Teesdale is a great location for a relaxing break. There are plenty of pubs, shops and restaurants to choose from and a farmer’s market that runs on the last Sunday of the month. For supermarkets and chemists, the town of Barnard Castle is just 10 miles away. The area has many excellent walking and cycling routes such as the High Force Circular Walk, taking you to the the spectacular High Force Waterfall in Forest-in-Teesdale and the walk from the nearby village of Mickleton to Grassholm reservoir (which is great for fishing and sailing!). The Kingsway Centre, located on the outskirts of the village, offers rock climbing, gorge walking, kayaking and raft building if you are feeling adventurous.
