The Hayloft is a beautiful dog friendly self-catering cottage situated in the foothills of the glorious rolling Teesdale countryside in County Durham. This five star cottage is full of character with its exposed beams, log burner and wooden floors. All you need to relax and make the most of your time away from home.

The Hayloft is perfect for a romantic break, countryside getaway, family holiday or as a country retreat for the discerning business traveller.

The space
This delightful Grade II Listed building has been tastefully restored to provide spacious, high quality accommodation full of charm and character. Cosy up in front of the log burner in the open plan sitting/dining area which adjoins the fully equipped kitchen. The wooden staircase leads to a spacious mezzanine bedroom with super king or twin beds from which you can enjoy uninterrupted views of the surrounding Teesdale countryside. The ground floor bathroom has a double ended bath with overhead shower and soft, fluffy bathrobes for ultimate relaxation after a busy day sightseeing.

The Hayloft has its own private, enclosed garden with patio area and seating, the perfect place to sit back and unwind while listening to birdsong and enjoying your morning coffee. Make the most of the daytime and evening sun and head down to the summerhouse by the wildlife pond to enjoy a good book and glass of wine?

We are located in lower Teesdale on the County Durham / North Yorkshire border, between the villages of Piercebridge and Gainford and market towns of Barnard Castle, Richmond and Darlington. We are close to local attractions such as Durham Cathedral, Beamish Museum, Bowes Museum in Barnard Castle, the Yorkshire Dales, High Force and Teesdale.

Location

Darlington, United Kingdom

Within one mile of East Greystone Farm Cottages the villages of Piercebridge and Gainford provide friendly local services, including newsagents, Post Office, hairdresser, doctors surgery, three churches, a great selection of cafes, fish and chip shop and organic farm shop/cafe. We are also incredibly lucky to have some fantastic local country pubs and quality restaurants in the area, including The Raby Hunt, the North East's first and only 2* Michelin restaurant.

East Greystone Cottages are a stone’s throw from the Teesdale Way making us an ideal base for walkers keen to explore the Dale. There is a drying area and lock up/store room which guests are welcome to use for walking and cycling equipment.

Piercebridge is on the site of a Roman fort which forms the part of the region’s Dere Street Roman Trail, a celebration of the Roman Heritage. There were Romans here from about 70 AD until at least the early 5th century. We are also located between the market towns of Barnard Castle, Richmond and Darlington providing you with ample opportunity to browse for antiques and other goodies during your stay.

Nearby bridleways, footpaths, bike trials, riverside walks, golf and fishing provide ample entertainment and opportunity to explore the countryside. For the keen explorers, the spectacular waterfalls, sweeping moorlands and magnificent castles of Teesdale are sure to please. The nearby Weardale and the Yorkshire Dales of Swaledale and Wensleydale provide further opportunities for exciting day trips out.

With the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, East Coast and cities of Durham, Newcastle and York all within easy driving distance, this is an ideal base from which to visit the sights of North East England.
