Fabulous stay - Latest Tripadvisor Review We booked a 3-night weekend stay in Riding Cottage on Riding Farm and weren't disappointed. Everything you need is provided, with ample comfortable chairs and a log burner to give that extra cosyness, especially on cold winter nights as it was when we were there. The accommodation is spacious, immaculate and well thought out and both bedrooms having their own private bathrooms is a bonus when more than 2 couples are residing. The location of Riding Farm Cottages is ideal for visiting Beamish Museum which we did and vouchers giving 25% off the ticket price per person provided by the owners was much appreciated, as we spent 2 days at the museum and still did not see everything. (The tickets are valid for 12 months so you can visit Beamish again and again!) We loved our stay so much that we are planning to go back to Riding Cottage and to visit Beamish again next year. We can thoroughly recommend a stay at Riding Farm Cottages. Great accommodation, great location and great hospitality. We even had a home-baked cake awaiting us when we arrived. We were also lucky enough to see a family of reindeer with their handlers who were using the farm as a stopover on their way to Middlesborough. Such a sight to see especially at this festive time of year and to be given the opportunity to see reindeer up close made it extra special.

Great place for my weekend catchup with friends - the latest review for Bowes Barn My stay at the Ridings Farm was a really pleasant experience. A last minute change was arranged with no fuss and communication with Louise was easy and friendly. The cottage had some lovely touches, the freshly baked cake being the tastiest. The ease of booking, communication, and great homely feel to the accommodation, really comfortable beds which induced the best nights sleep in a while, the fully equipped kitchen made everything easy.
