Voted for by our lovely Guests resulting in WINNER of the KENNEL CLUB OPEN FOR DOGS "BEST PLACE TO HOLIDAY" 2011/12
We are based on a working Sheep farm near Barnard Castle, Co. Durham (bordering North Yorkshire and Cumbria and 1 hour South of Northumberland) and our 50 acre farm is situated in a designated AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) and SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest).
Our cottages are specially designed for people with dogs, and as well as the chance to help out on the farm we have a fantastic purpose built 120 foot indoor Dog Agility Arena available for all year round use! If you've never tried Agility book a trial lesson (£25 for 1 hour) or if your dogs are trained in Agility enjoy practicing in a clean dry arena for only £14 per hour. We also offer sheepdog lessons for those interested and everyone is welcome to join us when our dogs gather the sheep in for various health checks. Lambing time runs from the first week of April to the middle of May so if you have never seen a lamb being born or bottled fed lambs these weeks are very popular!
We have two stone cottages available, both sleeping up to 5 people, and up to 4 dogs are included free of charge, further dogs are welcome for a nominal weekly charge. Our cottages are converted byres and date back to the 1700's. The farm itself sits just over 1000 feet high and is surrounded by fantastic walking country, with the Yorkshire Dales being only 30 mins away and the Lake District 1 hour.
We don't just "welcome" dogs, we LOVE dogs.  Our cottages were converted totally with dogs in mind so enjoy a six acre stock free field on your doorstep, enclosed gardens, hot/cold washing facilities outside, a purpose built doggy wetroom with hot/cold shower and radiator inside, half stable doors so inquistive little noses can peer over whilst drying off, non slip easy clean indian stone tiles, throws for the furniture, no Ming vases at waggy dog tail height (we get a lot of waggy tails) and a lovely log burning stove for owners and dogs to snooze in front of after a busy day walking round the many forests, reservoirs, and dog friendly attractions in the area.

The cottages also feature many original features including beams and stone walls and come equipped with full size oven, microwave, human bath and shower, dog shower, all bedding provided and creates available free of charge on request. We also supply dog holiday tags and our guest books are a wealth of information when our visitors arrive to plan their holiday. The cottages are accessed by their own private road and look out over the dog playing field on to open moors so fantastic views and superb sunsets are always on offer!
