Boot and Shoe Cottage lies on the south bank of the River Tees at an ancient crossing from Yorkshire into Durham. It has had a colourful past, combining use as a pub and a cobbler, and is now the perfect base for exploring Teesdale and the north Pennines, or for relaxing by the river watching kingfishers, ducks, trout and the occasional otter.
At the end of a private road, the cottage is very peaceful with fields of sheep and horses to the front and the river to the back. There is access the owners’ tennis court and also private fishing.
A welcome hamper of home-baking and groceries awaits you.
Downstairs - sitting room with wood stove (fuel provided), kitchen/living room with wood stove and French windows overlooking the garden and river, utility room, shower and WC. Upstairs - double bedroom, attic-style twin bedroom (suitable for children), bathroom and landing.
Set in the heart of Teesdale, one of England's most beautiful and unspoilt areas, Wycliffe is close to the historic market town of Barnard Castle, home to the renowned Bowes Museum, High Force - England's highest waterfall and the medieval stronghold of Raby Castle. Richmond and the North Yorkshire dales are a 20 minute drive. Further afield are Durham City and York, the Yorkshire dales and moors.
