Bev's house is beautiful and in a great location. The views from the garden to the river are idyllic. The house is finished to a very high standard. The local walks from the door are great. The river walk is particularly good if you have dogs. For any runners, the village is a great test due to gradient of hills. We were very lucky with weather, and mainly had sun but for those rainy moments the cottage has everything you could want. The wifi is great for streaming and there games and books if you left yours at home. I'd highly recommend this for a break, I've returned home fully relaxed.

Bev's cottage is as per advertised. No nasty surprises. You will need your own transportation to get to it but the drives are just gorgeous through rolling hills and sales. The cottage was easy to find via GPS And it was so super clean and well appointed , it was better than my own home ! The kitchen was well equipped and the fridge had milk and ice and Bev prepared a basket with some essentials like cereal and cookies. Personal touches like sweets for my child and wine for me were just lovely ! Super clean sheets and towels too. Comfy beds , fabulous heating and hot water round the clock too ! The garden and surrounding fields with sheep right at your doorstep was just the icing on the cake. The River Wear in your backyard was just amazing to listen to. It was the most stress free 5 days in my life ! The proximity to the pub , the Victoria made it easy to get dinner without having to cook on holiday ! I would HIGHLY recommend Plum Tree Cottage and Bev is truly A SUPERHOST

We had the most incredible weekend at Plum Tree Cottage!! We got ENGAGED!! We met Bev on arrival who was so lovely and couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. We wanted to go on a walk so Bev kindly provided us with a route approximately 1.5-2hours which was really beautiful and overlooked the nearby lakes and rivers. When we got back my partner was seeing to the dog whilst I went inside and when I opened the door the entire place was filled with rose petals, candles, and a bottle of champagne in front of the burning fire. As I turned around my partner was down on one knee with my ring. It was perfect! And it couldn't have been possible without the incredible Bev who set up everything. I couldn't never thank her enough!! We had the most incredible weekend in such a beautiful and immaculate cottage! We will DEFINITELY be back!!

This place is truly wonderful, a proper home from home with everything you could need. I didn't want to leave and can't wait to come back! The bed is super comfy and the showers are great. Everything has been considered and the fact that it is dog friendly is a huge bonus. Bev is a fantastic host and a true dog lover. Thank you for a great break!
