A Warm Welcome Awaits

Brock Scar Cottage is in an idyllic setting for a relaxing holiday in this lovely part of the North Pennines where you can be assured of peace and tranquility, away from all noise and stress, at any time of the year.

Situated on Wyn and Ian Gargate’s 17 acre farmland and maintained to a very high standard, stone-built Brock Scar Cottage is converted from what was originally a farmworker’s cottage, byre and hayloft.

The cottage is totally self-contained to guarantee absolute privacy, but Wyn and Ian live nearby and are always close at hand if you need advice on where to go, what to do, or where to eat.

Our rental weeks are from Saturday to Saturday. We regret that no pets are allowed.
