Boot and Shoe is a 4 star self-catering cottage near Barnard Castle in Teesdale and can accommodate 4 (or 6) guests.

Why Boot and Shoe? The sign was found when the roof was being repaired in the 1950s!

The cottage, once a cobblers and a pub, has been restored to a high standard with original wall cupboards, beams and fireplaces retained. It is now well furnished with country antiques and paintings and photographs of local interest adorn the walls.

Relax in the atmospheric sitting room with its wood burning stove, comfy sofas and views over the front garden and fields.
