This is the second time we have stayed at Footway and it was just as lovely as the first time. It is very comfortable and well furnished, cosy and in a quiet location, but just a short walk into Stanhope itself. It is also dog friendly which is important to us, and is a good base for visiting the area.

This was a little gem; the cottage was very comfortable. The owner left a welcome pack which was very thoughtful, the neighbour is a delightful gentleman and the location is superb. The owner is lovely and very accommodating. We will recommend this to all our friends. The cottage is lovely and the scenery outside was lovely, we watched all sorts of birds including long tail tits, blue tits, red wings etc.

My husband, our dog and I had a fabulous week at Footway Cottage. It was like a home from home. It is situated on a quiet road with outlooks to fields with lots of wildlife on show. The Cottage had everything we needed for the week and even accommodated the dog. It was very clean and comfortable. The village is within walking distance with a variety of shops.

We had a fantastic time at Footway Cottage. The cottage was spotless and had everything we needed. Although in a rural location, the shops were only a short distance away. Their were lovely walks straight from our doorstep.

This was the nicest cottage that we have stayed in. Beautiful cottage in an excellent, quiet situation. The welcome pack was exceptional, including a sticker book for our 4-year old grand-daughter. The facilities in the cottage were better than expected and the owner was most helpful at all times and we hope to visit Footway Cottage again next year.

A wonderful, characterful cottage, spotlessly clean, excellent facilities, friendly and helpful owners. Fantastic location, peaceful and rural yet close enough to town for groceries etc. The best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in!

A lovely cottage with everything you could possibly need. We had a week there at the end of May and could not fault the cottage or location - we would recommend Footway Cottage.
December 2015
We have just returned from a trip in Footway cottage. We went on the polar express which was great. The cottage is home from home with everything you need and more. The owner Norma is great, friendly and makes your stay very welcoming. The views from the cottage was fantastic. Had a great stay in this very lovely cottage. Highly recommend it. We was 2 adults and 1 child.

We once again stayed at Footway Cottage, it never disappoints, lovely relaxed break over New Year, great welcome pack, even a Xmas reindeer for our little girl! We shall return later on in the year!
September 2015
We have just returned from our second visit to Footway and it really is just a joy to stay there. The cottage is very comfortable, well equipped, cosy, in a lovely quiet area yet close to Stanhope and dog friendly which is very important to us. The owners Norma and David are lovely people and nothing is a trouble to them. We would highly recommend this cottage.
December 2013
We had a nice stay in the lovely cottage. The Stanhope Show was good, and there are plenty of places to visit. Local pubs and Restaurants were also very pleasant.
March 2014
We stayed in Footway Cottage for a week in Febuary. We had a wonderful stay, the welcome pack was very good, and even included a crayoning book for our little girl! The rooms are very good, very clean and nice and warm as it was very cold when we stayed. The location is superb, 5 minute drive into Stanhope. The view to the front is great with rolling fields and a stream winding down the hill. To the back is decking and views over the hills, would be great in the summer. The owner Norma was fantastic, even though we never met her ,the communication was great and even sent our child's book back by post which was left in error with a lovely letter telling my little girl that postman pat has sent it back to her! Overall I would give it 9/10, it would have got 10/10 if there was broadband as it would have been handy picking up emails etc, but that is being picky! We shall certainly being going back this year to this hidden little gem as we have family up there, fantastic!

We was moved to Footway cottage after moving from the holiday cottage the we originally booked ( which was unfit for us to stay in) We was so pleased we had to move as this cottage was perfect, beautifully clean and in a fantastic location. On arrival we was welcomed by Norma, the owner. She showed us around and told us what we would need to know. Their was a lovely welcome pack, milk, coffee, tea, sugar, breakfast cereal and she had even brought our son some chocolate, so very thoughtful. We had an amazing few days. We visited, Beamish, Carlisle Castle, Barnard Castle and other local places of interest. The only downside was we didn't have long enough there. We will definitely go back next year. Thank you David & Norma.

Nothing that springs to mind.. Everything was as expected. The owner was on hand when we arrived to give us the the information regarding the property and all the helpful local knowledge. Extremely helpful.

The creaky stairs together with the bedroom footfalls add to the minimalistic nature of the cottage.. The location is ideal for exploring the Durham Dales with pub/eateries close by. Altogether a quaint cottage in a superb location - simply splendid for the simple life.

This is a lovely cottage in an ideal position if like me you have dogs and like walking.. Close enough to the village to access the facilities it is far enough away to be peaceful. The facilities in the cottage are good and the views are outstanding. The master bedroom is a great size and the bed is very comfortable. The owners could not have been more friendly and helpful. Walks along the river are lovely and I saw a kingfisher!
Mr Wain

The owner made us feel welcome,and the welcome goodies were a lovely touch.. Only thing is a mirror in the second bedroom would be an advantage.
