Sharing a leafy courtyard, both Wear View and Witton View Cottage’s views are over open countryside with plenty of nature and wildlife to take in. They are pet friendly and each sleep 4 people with one double bedroom and one twin bedroom. A baby’s cot is also available to prebook if required.

WITTON VIEW COTTAGE

As the name may suggest, Witton View cottage faces North towards the picturesque village of Witton le Wear. Homely and welcoming, this spacious cottage provides a fabulous central location for exploring all that Durham and Weardale have to offer.

WILDLIFE AT EDGE KNOLL FARM

There have been more than eighty species of birds spotted at Edge Knoll Farm. Our annual visitors, the swallows, return every year to their own summer accommodation in the buildings around the courtyard. Tawny and Barn Owls, Buzzards, Woodpeckers, Herons and a great variety of songbirds can be seen daily. This is bird watching from your armchair!

BARN OWLS

We have four resident Barn Owls on Edge Knoll so far. Though usually nocturnal creatures, they can sometimes be seen hunting through the day and patrolling their own patch of grass in the 200 acres around the cottages.

a Word From

MICHAEL EDMONDS

I am privileged to live on and own Edge Knoll Farm and the old 17th-century Cow Byres and Gin Gang Mill buildings which are now Holiday Cottages. I was also privileged to have been a friend of the late Harry Jewitt who’s father bought Edge Knoll Farm in 1927.

I spent many happy hours in Harry’s company and his descriptions of life and work, at first for his father then later as the owner himself. Harry had hundreds of stories to tell of life at Edge Knoll, all point to a life that was hard but rewarding.

Whilst this website is primarily to promote our business, I am very passionate about the history of Edge Knoll and its surrounding area. If you’re interested, you can read more about The Farm’s history and also gain some insight into where to go and what to do during your stay with us.
