We have owned and loved Stone Cottage since 2013, buying it just before the birth of our son. It was the most amazing family home and we have many happy memories within the cottage and surrounding areas. When we had to relocate we decided we wanted to give you the opportunity to make some wonderful memories too!

Butterknowle is a small village within Teesdale in County Durham. A beautiful rural setting within the Gaunless Valley, which is also home to the Gaunless Valley Visitor Centre, and overlooked by the gorse-covered Cockfield Fell. This fell is a scheduled ancient monument, containing evidence of Roman settlements and a medieval coal mine, thought to be the earliest inland colliery recorded.

The surrounding areas have a number of fantastic places and events; these include Hamsterley Forest, a 2000 hectare site with walking and cycle routes, Barnard Castle which hosts a wonderful Farmers Market as well as local pubs, shops and cafes, and Bishop Auckland is also home to the amazing Kynren - An Epic Tale of England performed by a cast and crew of 1,000,  taking you on an amazing journey through 2,000 years of history, myth and legend.
