We advertise on many sites but do try to keep the calendar up to date, this can be difficult at times so please check first. I always try to respond withing a few hours. Because we cannot list all prices, flipkey will always use the base rate to quote, this is incorrect and can be a long way out at peak times, this is due to the inflexibility of their system and is very misleading.

The SpaceWeardale Cottage can sleep up to 5 persons - there is a double bed and two twin beds, plus a fold-out single bed. The cottage was originally two "one up one down" miners' 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. A small but well equipped kitchen leads off the dining room; and also on the ground floor is the shower room with handbasin and toilet. The double bedroom also has its own ensuite toilet and handbasin. Please be aware that the stone flagged ground floor can feel cold and therefore guests are advised to bring slippers. Guest AccessFrom the village there are many scenic walks, along the river Wear or up into the hills. We recommend the walk up into Slitt Woods, following the course of the Middlehope Burn stream. Details of this walk and many others can be found on the 'Discoverweardale' website. Locally there is the village pub, where they brew their own 'Weard Ale' beer and serve evening meals. Further down the valley is the market town of Stanhope, for a range of shops and facilities, and the excellent Durham Dales centre, for tourist information, arts and crafts and cafe. Interaction with GuestsGuests 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 NeighborhoodWestgate 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 AroundWeardale Cottage is located in the village of Westgate. The local brew-pub is called The Hare & Hounds, and there is a bus service - the 101 - that runs up and down the valley, enabling easy access to the other villages and the local market town of Stanhope, even if you don't have a car. If you are exploring the north-east and/or Cumbria, this is a great central location - distances to popular destinations are:- Durham City (30 miles) Newcastle upon Tyne (35 miles) Hexham and Hadrian's Wall (29 miles) Beamish Museum (27 miles) Keswick (50 miles) Alston (14 miles) Other Things to NoteIf you book a stay in the winter months, (October through April) you will need to be confident to run the solid fuel appliances - stove and/or Rayburn, to supplement the electric heating. And don't forget your slippers!

                                            Please read pricing info below, do not use the base rated quoted. Our prices vary considerably throughout the year from week to week and it is impossible to list them all, in four cottages, our base rate is £100 a day to £200 peak, please ask for a quote. We are generally around £990 for a peak week and £390 for off peak. School holidays are generally over £500 per period. Our changeover days are Friday and Monday only. Weekends are sold by Fri, Sat and Sun only, we can not discount for a Sunday departure. Midweek is generally cheaper, quiet, with no minimum stay and from £129. We advertise on many sites but do try to keep the calendar up to date, this can be difficult at times so please check first. I always try to respond withing a few hours. Because we cannot list all prices, flipkey will always use the base rate to quote, this is incorrect and can be a long way out at peak times, this is due to the inflexibility of their system and is very misleading. Please contact us for a quote stating the correct number of guests, average age and if you intend to bring pets. We will normally get back to you within a few hours with a price.
