We had an amazing stay at Belle View.. a gorgeous cottage in the middle of such beautiful countryside.. views in all directions! Phil and Sue were so friendly and helpful giving us lots of ideas for places to visit and eat out!
Very well equipped and comfortable cottage which was spotlessly clean. Many thanks for the welcome hamper of biscuits and wine.
We shall definitely be returning to this beautiful cottage!

Sally Winkle, 

What a fabulous place to stay. Phil and Sue offered up some interesting places to visit, all dog friendly. High and Low Force was fantastic. Our dogs will probably sulk when we get home. The Black Bull in Wolsingham is a fantastic place to drink and get a bite to eat.

The most amazing stay. So convenient for our dog agility show at Wolsingham. Lovely garden, fabulous weather. Sue and Phil have thought of everything required for a fantastic stay. Thank you!

Second time staying and already planning our next stay. Phil and Sue are brilliant hosts and the cottage is an absolute gem with amazing views and everything you could need to enjoy a relaxing stay (as relaxing as can be with a 4 year old!) fantastic local walks and phil is a fountain of knowledge when it comes to some great walks elsewhere. Thanks for a great week!

Belle View cottage is just so lovely. The views are breathtaking. The surrounding area is wonderful, so many places to walk, so peaceful.
The cottage itself is everything you could ever want, warm and cosy, spotless, well equipped. All of this is down to hosts they are just so kind and make sure you have a good holiday.
We hope to be able to go back to Belle View soon. 10/10
