Characterful stone cottage in beautiful Upper Weardale, County Durham.

Lounge, dining room, small kitchen, bathroom with shower, twin bedroom (extra single bed available), and double bedroom with ensuite toilet and handbasin. Utility room with washing machine, off-road parking, private secluded south-facing garden.

The Space

The cottage was originally two "one up one down" houses, now joined together. It retains many original features, and has two separate staircases to the bedrooms. The lounge has a multi-fuel stove and the dining room features a solid fuel Rayburn cooker.

Guest Access

Locally there is the village pub, where they brew their own 'Weard Ale' beer and serve evening meals. There is the small co-op and post office, within 10 metres of the cottage. Further down the valley is the market town of Stanhope, for a greater range of shops and facilities, and the excellent Durham Dales centre, for tourist information, arts and crafts and cafe.

Interaction with Guests

Guests have the use of the whole house - we are not present during your stay. We can offer guided walking if required, please contact us for further details.

The Neighborhood

Westgate is a very quiet village, but is part of the wider Weardale community of small towns, villages and farms. The walking around the area is fantastic, and the lead mining history of the area adds an additional layer of historical interest to a beautiful and rugged area. Upper Weardale is part of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and is also within the geopark, having its own unique geology.

Getting around

There is a bus service - the 101 - that runs up and down the valley.

Other Things to Note

If you book a stay in the winter months, you will need to be confident to run the solid fuel appliances - stove and/or Rayburn, to supplement the electric heating.

  • Three generations of the Horton family enjoyed our stay in Westgate.

    The cottage was just as described, with a lot of character. We liked the village too, with it's stream and river walks, good shop and pub, even llamas!

    Communication from our host before the trip was prompt and helpful. One issue arose during the stay that was dealt with quickly and fairly.

    We would recommend this cottage and hope to stay again.

  • We stayed at Weardale Cottage for three nights and immensely enjoyed the peace and quiet it had to offer. The cottage was spacious enough to easily accommodate the three of us without a problem, the kitchen was fully equipped so we were able to cook our own meals, and there were plenty of board games and books and a lovely garden to sit in to pass the time and relax. I hope to come back some day soon!
