The Aspens

Surrounded by rolling moorland and boasting captivating views of Grassholme Reservoir in a secluded location on the outskirts of Middleton-In-Teesdale is this stone-built cottage, The Aspens. Approached via an endearing, well-maintained track, away from the hustle and bustle of the nearby town makes this spacious dwelling ideal for a family seeking a tranquil hideaway to explore the pretty North Pennines AONB. Kick off your walking boots within the utility, where you will find a washing machine and a tumble dryer, before relaxing into your evening within the stylish property which comes with everything you could possibly need. Pick up local produce from the shop and look forward to making the most of the well-equipped kitchen to cater your own delicious evening meals before opening up a bottle of wine that’s been kept cool in the wine chiller. The character of the property is truly highlighted within the sitting room, where a woodburning stove welcomes you in during a winter’s evening before you tune into the TV.
