Welcome to the Leighton Cottage website introducing Four Star Self Catering Accommodation from which to explore Teesdale - described as  'One of the last undiscovered natural regions in England'.



Leighton Cottage is pet friendly and can accommodate up to 6 people, we are located in the quiet, rural Teesdale village of Bowes, just off the Pennine Way, 4 miles from the market town of Barnard Castle and within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.



Exploring Bowes

Bowes is an ideal location for walking, bird watching, fishing, cycling or simply relaxing and is an excellent base for visiting local historic attractions for example Barnard Castle, Raby Castle, Egglestone Abbey and The Bowes Museum are just a short drive away.  Pets are welcome at no extra charge (well they are part of the family!)
