Whitbridge Cottage

Whitbridge Cottage

Mickleton, Middleton in Teesdale (View Accessibility Statement)

This delightful cottage lies in a sunny south-facing position surrounded by glorious views at the edge of the village in the heart of Upper Teesdale.

Retaining much of its former character (formerly an old barn) this cosy cottage with its beamed ceilings has been sensitively restored and stylishly furnished, and in addition to full central heating, the sitting room has the benefit of a unique wood burning stove which also emits heat through into the dining room next door. 

Within walking distance of the 2 village pubs and restaurant and just 2 miles away from the old market town of Middleton in Teesdale which offers everyday shopping, together with regular farmers market, pubs, bistros and tea-rooms.  The situation is ideal for holidaymakers to enjoy dramatic scenery including High Force, Englands highest waterfall  and the  history of the area. 

There are numerous walks and cycle paths from the doorstep and long distance views are afforded across the Tees valley to the fells beyond. The area is designated as one of outstanding natural beauty (North Pennines AONB) and is a haven for bird watchers and botanists with walking, fishing, horse riding, cycling and climbing and a wealth of historical, geographical sites to visit including the Lake District just over an hour’s drive away.
