Holiday home
Situated in its own grounds in the peaceful and tranquil hamlet of Hury, this property is a charming stone-built semi-detached cottage just 10 miles from Barnard Castle.

Made up of a small cluster of hamlets and farm dwellings overlooking the reservoirs of Hury, Blackton and Balderhead, Baldersdale branches off Teesdale. Home to Hannah Hauxwell, this lovely settlement rose to fame in the 1970s when Hauxwell was featured on television for single-handedly running her farm from her home which had no running water. Now managed by Durham Wildlife Trust, 'Hannah's Meadow' is an attractive nature reserve. One of the most unspoilt villages in Teesdale – Romaldkirk – is close by and consists of pretty greens, old stone cottages, a beautiful old church and two pubs - one of which won the AA Pub of the Year award for England in 2003. The breathtaking Dales countryside provides some excellent walking and cycling routes whilst the cities of Durham and Newcastle are all within easy driving distance for more cosmopolitan activities.

Self-Catering Reviews

Mr Phillips
August 2020
Hury Lodge is cosy with wonderful views over the reservoir.. Communication with the owner was excellent and we had a safe, contactless entry & departure. Everything was very clean and comfortable. It was great having the enclosed garden for our 2 dogs, sadly not the weather for a BBQ, although one is provided. A very enjoyable stay overall!

The cottage is compact, well heated with a fantastic view of the reservoir.. A broad selection of utensils were available but missing a basic few. It was disappointing to find the TV was not working, something that should have been identified and rectified before we arrived. We found our phones were not getting good reception, so, after a texted conversation relating to the internet access and code given for access not working and requests for assistance with the TV, both were resolved by the owners when they returned. Simple things like a tea strainer or cafetiere would have been helpful as making fresh coffee was a bit of a challenge with nothing to stop the coffee ground when pouring.

When you go away in November your not expecting fantastic weather, so staying at Hury lodge was an absolute delight for those rainy days where you could cosy up with a good book and look out the window to the wonderful view of the reservoir.. Also makes for a good walk, though a bit muddy with all the rain over the last week. This is very well equipped cottage with a good range of kitchen utensils, books etc. Nice touch having milk and cake there on arrival, thank you. I have a Jack Russell terrier which I felt was saver keeping on a lead when ever we were outside as there are sheep in the fields around the cottage. Beautiful countryside with lots to explore, would highly recommend for a peaceful getaway.

The cottage was ideal for a familly of four, perfect fit for holiday plan in middle of nature

We spent an idyllic week at Hury Lodge. What a lovely location and beautiful setting. The cottage was lovely and very spacious - we were a party of four adults and 1 dog. The views were stunning and our dog was fascinated by the sheep at the end of the garden. When we arrived it was lovely to be able to make tea & coffee which was provided and lovely homemade chocolate cake. There was everything we needed to make our stay exceptional. Hope to visit again.

Third visit to this cottage.. Very clean and comfortable with outstanding views. Small enclosed garden ideal for our dogs. Quiet and peaceful setting but only a few miles to nearest shops.
February 2019
This fabulous lodge nestled on the edge of hury resovouir is situated in a quiet location and pet friendly. Great walks around the area and local amenities just a short drive away. Location is great for a quiet get away from it all stay. The Lodge has everything you need and the owners are very obliging and lovely people. We have been a few times now and will be returning in the future

Great location and the cottage is to a very high standard.. The owners are very obliging and on hand your every need is catered for. The idilic setting had many walks to choose from and the area is steeped in history and a good way to explore. The cottage and gardens are pet friendly and we will definitely be back.

This was I think our fourth visit to Hury, hence my expectations are met rather than exceeded! It is a lovely place where we are guaranteed a peaceful stay. It's very good for my elderly father - we love the view across the reservoir with ever-changing clouds and light, and easy short walks from the house.
Mrs Peart

We enjoyed every day we were there,except for the rain.. Every thing was 100 percent .would certainly try to get back next year

Mrs Shrimpton
July 2018
The cottage had so much more than expected.. The views were amazing it was so peaceful and tranquil exactly what we were looking for. Dog friendly area with plenty of walks. We just loved every minute
June 2018
Great location for relaxing. The cottage has got everything you need to make your stay more enjoyable. Ali and Chris are very pleasant and polite host's and told us that if there was anything we needed just to contact them. We was so relaxed and taken in by the gorgeous views in actual fact we didn't need to bother them. Comunication was good right from the start and Ali gave us some hints and tips of where to go for nice long walks in and around the area. Unfortunately lisa is disabled due to strokes so we took the car most places due to Lisa not being able to walk too long of a distance. The upkeep of the cottage and garden is to a very high standard and we loved every minute of our stay. On arrival into the cottage the Host's had left us a nice bottle of cava and a chocolate fudge cake of which we very kindly demolished. This is a dog friendly cottage and both our dogs loved every minute of their stay too and was both very sad to leave. The cottage and area is so peaceful and tranquil you kind of forget about all the worries of daily troubles back home. Great place and hope to return very soon
June 2018
We were very pleased with Hury Lodge.. It is in a wonderful location overlooking Hury Reservoir and is quiet and peaceful. The cottage was clean and comfortable and the owners who live adjoining were very friendly and helpful. I have no doubt we will return to this cottage in the future.

Our second visit.. . Cottage is very warm and cosy with all facilities provided. Small garden, ideal for small children and dogs. Views are spectacular and as based in Durham Dales but close to Cumbria and Yorkshire Dales the cottage is surrounded by stunning scenery. Owners very friendly and welcoming. We don't often go to same cottage twice as there are so many to choose from but in this case we will definitely be planning a third visit! Highly recommend.
Mrs Lindsay
December 2017
What a fabulous clean and well maintained cottage with stunning views.. Cosy and warm. The simple things like a bottle of cava and party poppers awaited us to celebrate the New Year. Certainly recommended. Owners got in touch as soon as we contacted them re key collection. Would certainly return.
Mrs Wilkinson

Fabulous cottage and scenery with all mod cons.. The hosts are a lovely couple and keep the property 5* lots of walks and the dogs loved it we will certainly be back. A home from Home.
October 2017
A fantastic cottage on the banks of the Hury reservoir. The cottage is lovely, clean and warm, very comfortable and equipped to a high standard with everything you could possibly want. They have tea bags and coffee with fresh milk in the fridge and a packet of shortbread caramel biscuits for us and doggy treats for the dog. There was tin foil, cling film, washing up liquid, dishwashing tabs, doggy bags, even a towel for the dog, everything you'll need! The cottage is remote situated 3 miles over the Moors, but has good roads to reach it if you follow the directions given by the owners. The nearest shop is 4 miles away which is a post office, so only open throughout the day and the nearest town Barnard Castle which is 10 miles away, so make sure you take the food you need for the first days. The scenery is stunning with far reaching views across the reservoir and surrounding Pennines. The garden is fully enclosed for dogs with a wire fence and chicken wire around the bottom, but if you have small dogs they maybe able to get through a small area of fencing that didn't have chicken wire on at the side of the cottage. You can walk around the reservoir 3.5 miles, but there isn't a proper path way to get to it, so not good for less able visitors and I found that there isn't anywhere you can walk the dogs for a short toilet break as the cottage is down a short lane and then your onto the road and sheep in the field outside the cottage. The owners were lovely and nothing would be too much trouble. I would definitely recommend and will look forward to a return visit.
October 2017
We had a lovely, relaxing holiday here again.. It's our fourth visit and the hosts are always very welcoming. The cosy cottage and pretty, little garden are well looked after and much care is taken to keep them well presented.
Mr Turnbull
October 2017
Hury Cottage is excellent comfortable and well equipped.. Being disabled all been on one level it was ideal for me. The view from the cottage was amazing everywhere you look unusual and exciting wildlife. I photographed otters and beautiful landscapes all in all a great holiday
February 2017
This is the second time we have stayed at Hury Lodge, we enjoyed our week there last year so much that we returned for two weeks. The cottage is adjacent to the owner's house, but we only saw them a couple of times during our stay. The cottage feels away from it all, surrounded by fields and sheep. There are also gorgeous views from the kitchen and conservatory of the reservoir. The cottage is spacious and very well equipped. The wifi isn't great, but other than checking opening times etc. you won't need it as there's plenty of things to keep you busy in the area! The house is very peaceful, I would definitely recommend. We will definitely be back at some point.
Mr Adams

This is an excellent cottage, that is very well equipped, in beautiful area.

A quiet and peaceful few days. Easy to reach Barnard Castle and Middleton. A beautiful part of the world and a comfortable well equipped cottage.
Mrs Taylor
August 2015
We loved the cottage and the location. Stunning views and walks and plenty to do with young children. The owners were very friendly and the cottage was set up with everything we needed.
Mrs Chandler
April 2015
Our second visit and it was just as we had remembered it. The owners were very friendly and always happy to chat. Had stunning views which the cottage makes the best of with the big picture window in the kitchen and the little porch/sun lounge. Care had also been taken with the garden. We hope to visit again. We all, including the dog, enjoyed it.

This is a lovely cosy cottage adjoined to the owners house with it's own garden and stunning views over Hury reservoir and the dales beyond. If you are looking for peace and quiet and somewhere away from it all, then this is the place to be. The cottage is well maintained and equipped and each room feels very comfortable. My favourite was the kitchen with the lovely featured arch window overlooking Hury reservoir. The cottage is warm and homely with freshly laundered, ample supply of towels and comfy beds. One bedroom is located off the kitchen, and the other off the sitting room. Even during a very stormy 36 hours, we felt cosy and warm in the cottage. There are some walks round the reservoir or along the lanes in the immediate location and is probably even more lovely during the summer months. The nearest place, we found, to shop was Barnard Castle, so go with some provisions. Barnard Castle is a lovely market town and nice to wander around as it has some lovely shops and of course the castle. There is no internet at the cottage, which is sometimes a good thing, but also extremely scarce mobile phone network coverage, so be prepared to be cut off from the outside world for a while. This is a dog friendly cottage and the main reason I chose to stay here, especially with the enclosed garden. The sun room entrance porch is great for taking off muddy wellies and for drying off muddy paws before going inside the cottage. However, for two small Cockapoo's the garden was not secure enough as they could fit through the bars on the gate and the wire fencing also has gaps big enough for them to get through, so for us, it was supervised on the lead in the garden. Immediately across from the wire fence is a field of sheep, so something to be mindful of too. I would definitely recommend this cottage. Certainly a great place to unwind.

The property provided comfort and seclusion even though a thriving market town was only a short drive away.
November 2014
Wonderful - well appointed cottage conversion in what has rightly been described as one of the UK's hidden gems, the Durham Dales. a short drive from the thriving market town of Barnard Castle with award winning restaurants, yet secluded and with outstanding views. Cosy bedrooms, comfortable sitting room, well appointed kitchen (the rolling pin and mixing bowl saw some action this week).
Mrs Smith
October 2014
The cottage was ideal for walking straight from the front door with the dogs plus there were numerous walks which were only a short drive from the cottage.
Mr Langley

The peace and quiet plus the feeling of almost having a home from home!! The surrounding walks were also amazing!!
Mrs Cobb

It was the best cottage I ever stayed in, for us it was super, 5 star. You need to take just clothes, as this cottage is very well equipped. Beautiful place. Wonderful surroundings, and a homely, peaceful and stunning cottage.
Maureen and David
August 2013
The cottage was well equipped and comfortable. We moved the dining table in the kitchen to take better advantage of the views over the reservoir and hillside. The lounge was comfortable and the bedroom was fine, except for the small doorway which is fine if you are under 5 feet tall.
Mr Grant
July 2013
The outstanding feature of this holiday was the incredible views, both locally and also from the cottage itself.
July 2013
Comfortable accommodation in quiet backwater.Plenty of walks in the fells and around the nearby reservoirs,and plenty of attractions in the district.Even the weather[including rain and snow] didn't detract from the pleasant holiday.

The property was cozy and warm and had beautiful views of the reservoir. It was great for our 2 dogs to go into the garden that was fully secured. There was plenty of information about the surrounding areas and local pubs and restaurants where we visited and had lovely food. All in all, we had a great few days.

It was a very peaceful location with beautiful views. This is the only cottage I have been to that I would most definitely return to. There are abundant walks and so many places of interest close by. We were made to feel very welcome, and it was nice to be able to go for some decent long walks from the doorstep with my dog. The list is endless!

Lots to do in the area. Visited the Tall Ships 2010 at Hartlepool. The cottage was of a high standard. The views were excellent. The owners were very helpful and friendly. This was our second visit, and we would come again. Pet friendly cottage.
July 2010
Lovely cottage with all your homely needs cattered for, even for the dog. Fantastic scenery and views from the cottage. Beautifull countryside walks, lots of bird watching and breathtaking drives accross the moors to see the grouse. Best pub is the Fox and Hounds in Cotherstone and best cream tea was in The Laurels at Staindrop...yum yum!

The location was superb, the cottage was very comfortable and dog friendly and the owners were very hospitable and very accommodating. A thoroughly enjoyable holiday!
March 2010
A wonderful break away. Beautiful location, roomy, well equipped cottage. Helpful friendly owners who pulled our car out of a snow drift even! Barnard Castle a 20 mns drive away. Great location for walkers and for driving to explore the area, both north and south. Only negative was no internet acccess, but that was a minor gripe. We were there in winter. Would also be wonderful in the Summer. Highly recommended.
Mr Kielty

Fantastic cottage location overlooking Hury Lake. The cosy cottage had big windows and a conservatory with fantastic views. We wanted to stay forever and will definitely be staying again but next time for longer.

the cottage was lovely,beautiful location,every facility. We did not have power for over 48hrs though,this did spoil the experience. Would return though.... Christine croucher
Miss Richmond
August 2009
This is a cosy, well-appointed, cottage with SUPERB views of the surrounding countryside. The owner was friendly and helpful, and had gone to great pains to provide useful information about both the house facilities and local attractions, and local maps. The standard of furnishing was very good for a 'Pet-friendly' cottage. The decor was particularly pleasing. We would really struggle to find fault with this cottage. It was a luxury to have a dishwasher, but I might have preferred a washing machine if we had been staying longer. I would have no hesitation in recommending Hury Lodge to others. Even my cats didn't want to leave!
Mr Munton
