Great little gem!

Group of 4 of us went up north for a few days of hiking and relax. We really enjoyed our stay at Lea House, everything was super clean and the house quite spacious. We loved to have breakfast in the front patio and enjoy a glass of wine after the long hiking day. Would definitely recommend Lea House.

Thank you for the lovely review. We are so pleased you have enjoyed our cottage and surrounding area.

Fantastic! Everything you need for a relaxing stay. We were made so welcome and immediately felt at home. Bed was really comfortable, loads of hot water and the whole house spotless. Sitting outside in the evening is a joy - you can hear the Wear bubbling, birds singing and lambs baaing!

Many Thanks for your lovely review. We are so pleased you felt welcome and at home in our cottage. Hope to see you again
