What a beautiful place to stay! The little touches from the owners go a long way. We’ve had a fabulous and very relaxed... weekend with the pooches! I’m sure if they could talk they would say the same. Can’t wait to book for the summer!

Had an amazing time. We stayed in Peewit Cottage, which was beautifully decorated and spacious. Hot tub was lovely and... little extra touches like Prosecco, chocs and strawberries as well as a welcome hamper were a great touch. Our little girl loved the fields and the horses just over the road! Great location for exploring all parts of the North East. Special shout out to Glen who was super friendly and will make our stay even more memorable. We will definitely be back here soon 🥰read more

Booked two cottages to celebrate our friends 40th birthday- Barn owl and Peewit - both cottages were stunning. The... welcome hamper was just what we needed to get started, and the Prosecco chocolates and strawberries at the hot tub were a lovely touch.

We are just back from our first break away with a dog. This was a brilliant experience! The cottage was clean & had... everything we could need. There are 2 big fields for walking our furry family member. Some lovely treats were left for our arrival & dog treats too. The private hot tub was fabulous. County Durham is beautiful and there were loads of dog friendly places to eat and great walks. We would recommend Rowley Stone & the County 🤩read more

Heading home from our second fantastic stay at Rowley Stone Cottages. We would highly recommend. We have now stayed in... Peewit Cottage and Barn Owl Cottage, both are amazing! Stunning cottages and absolutely immaculate. Jacqui, Glen and team are fantastic, so friendly and welcoming and put lots of effort into the little details. Located next to acres of land which make it perfect for dog owners. The hot tubs and sauna are a real bonus 😊read more

My partner & I celebrated our anniversary here. We were welcomed with banners and balloons and a little card & cake... 😍 the little touches that went into this stay just made the experience so much more incredible 🙌🏽

Our cockapoo also loved every minute of our stay & was so reluctant to leave !

Would 100% be recommending these cottages to my future clients looking for staycations 🥰 each cottage had their own private hot tub which is a major bonus !!

Thank you so much Jacqui & the team for making our weekend so special !

Absolutely brilliant holiday , extremely quiet calm and relaxing break. From start to finish an awesome stay, host’s lovely people nothing was a problem. The cottage beautiful, extremely clean it has everything you need. Photos on all websites don’t do it justice. the grounds are beautiful well maintained and loved. The gift basket of goodies when we arrived was a lovely touch after such a long journey. The hot tub wow wow wow loved this especially when we first walked in to chocolates, prosecco and strawberries what a beautiful idea. This is a highly recommended holiday there is plenty to do in surrounding area especially Durham cathedral.

The cottages are all beautiful, just my taste where internally they are modern and externally, stone built with history all around. Jacqui, her husband and others that work on site are lovely people. The hamper left in the cottage on arrival was great but on entering the Hot Tub building there was even more – strawberries, chocolates and prosecco. The external areas are beautiful, a lovely cobbled courtyard with tables/chairs and a large patio area at the back with more tables, chairs and a gazebo for shade/cover. The fields are great for dogs, now including an area with a seesaw, tunnel etc. for them to play. Safe to let your dogs off lead (apart from maybe the determined ones), it is doggy paradise. There is plenty to do in the surrounding area, and the coast isn’t too far away. Supermarkets a 5 minute drive. There is also the C2C path that is a stones-throw from the cottages. One of my favourite things was getting up very early and sitting alone in the field, watching the rabbits playing. All in all, a lovely break and we are already booked to return next year. Thanks Jacqui, all your hard work has paid off.

The cottages have everything you will need for a relaxing stay. The hot tubs are immaculate with prosecco and strawberries on arrival. They are dog friendly too and our dog was happy to stay there as there are big fields to run around on. You get fluffy robes and disposal slippers for the hot tub and there is also a sauna and ice plunge bath you can arrange to use. We also go a welcome hamper full of goodies from bread and cheese, beers and chocolates. Very relaxing and recommended.

The accommodation was very well thought out and comfortable with some nice little touches making it more homely than your average holiday let. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly keeping the cottage and surrounding complex area clean to a high standard. I would highly recommend to anyone wanting to have a relaxed holiday with plenty of walks around and plenty of dog friendly places to go for lunch or dinner out. Locally we were recommended a doggy caffe that has dog play areas where your dog can play, eat doggy afternoon tea if you want along with a dog menu while you eat. All other animals welcomes too even seeing a cat visiting too. Highly recommend and will be returning ourselves.

We stayed recently at Peewit Cottage. The property was clean and well equipped. It was very comfortable. My husband usually complains everywhere we go about the beds but he thought the one here was comfy. There is a massive field to walk dogs in and good walks nearby. The only negative is the road outside is very busy but the property itself is fantastic. I miss hearing cockerels and sheep in the mornings when I let my dog out first thing, it was a great relaxing break.

Would highly recommend staying at the Rowley Stone cottages, the staff on site were lovely and so attentive. The attention to detail and the little welcome basket for ourselves and the welcome pack for our dog was much appreciated. Nothing was too much trouble. The location was perfect, plenty of beautiful walks and the secure dog field was an added bonus. Will definitely be returning!

Had a great little break with the family! We stayed in Peewit Cottage, has a big living / dining area and a walk in shower room. We relaxed in our private hot tub, went for walks along the paths that run right next to the cottages and the views are spectacular. The kids were worn out by the evening, it was the perfect getaway, will definitely be booking again soon.
