Leny's is a handsome detached stone house, situated in beautiful countryside. The property has been recently fully renovated and tastefully refurnished. The extensive gardens give plenty of scope for relaxation and the house enjoys outstanding views of the surrounding scenery. The house is just one mile from Middleton-in-Teesdale, a thriving market town with many interesting shops and places to eat.

A large forest adjacent to the house provides wonderful woodland walks, with streams and becks, which are ideal for picnics, paddling or just enjoying the peace and tranquillity. Miles of public footpaths, quiet country lanes, forest tracks and heather moors, make the area ideal for walking, cycling and pony-trekking.

Nearby attractions include the Bowes museum, Raby Castle and High Force, which, at 70ft, is the highest unbroken waterfall in England. The house is only approx. one hour's drive from Durham, York, the Beamish Museum, the Lake District and Hadrian's Wall.

Accommodation includes a spacious fully fitted dining kitchen with a log-burning stove. A glass sun-room. A cosy sitting room, with open fire, providing ample areas for relaxation, whatever the season. A ground floor WC and shower room. Upstairs, the landing leads to a large double bedroom. The second bedroom has both a double and a single bed. The third bedroom accommodates two bunk beds. The fully fitted bathroom includes a bath and separate shower cubicle.

"Thank you. This is a very magical place – a real escape from the hustle and bustle of life. We had a wonderful time, with beautiful walks and yummy cream teas".

- The Porter family, Hertfordshire.

"What a wonderful place to stay! Beautiful area and lovely cottage. Great fish and chips in the village too. Will definitely be back."

- The Jackson family, Newcastle-upon-Tyne

"We had a fabulous week in your cosy cottage. Weather held out for us (apart from the first day) and the kids loved exploring the forest across the road. We loved the peace and tranquility and all the fresh air. The kids loved the cottage with all the toys and games to play with and hide and seek/tree-climbing were favourites in the garden. Many thanks"

- The Waugh family, Glasgow


"Felt very comfortable in this lovely cottage, with stunning views. The bed was so comfy – like sleeping on top of a marshmallow! It's been three days of peace, quiet and tranquility which is exactly what I was hoping for (and needed). Back to the rat race now but I hope to pay another visit next year. Thank you for making me feel so welcome."

- P MacDonald, Stockton-on-Tees


"What a wonderful cottage. We stayed here for our “familymoon” and had an excellent time. We tried out all the beds between us and all were very comfy!! The facilities were amazing and we have already planned to come back in the summer. Beautiful, peaceful location within easy reach of places. We visited the Bowes Museum in Barnard Castle, Durham, Whitby and York, to name but a few. Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday."
