Latest Review of Sheep Pen Cottage - I cannot praise the facilities of Sheep Pen Cottage “A splendid location for walkers and National Trust members. Lots of castles and Durham Cathedral. Raby Castle and Bamburgh Castle - come to mind, plus lots of gardens and one waterfall! Then there is Beamish Museum, something nobody should miss of in striking distance of the living museum of the North. There are plenty of water holes (pubs). My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay and our holiday” Why don’t you we have a short weekend break in August, we still have some limited availability http://www.ridingfarmcottages.co.uk/our-cottages/sheep-pen-cottage/
