Description

Situated on the owners’ working farm, this cosy property offers the perfect location to enjoy that well needed rural retreat.

Nestled within the grounds of the owner’s farm, Ashlea is the perfect location for guests wanting to explore the local area. Surrounded by fields and open countryside, with great views over towards Eggleston, Middleton and County Durham, this detached cottage is a peaceful and restful hideaway, yet only a short drive away from major transport links. With weekly and monthly farmers markets, plenty of places to eat and drink and a variety of shops, galleries and antiques stores, there really is something to offer for all tastes. Guests who enjoy a spot of history will enjoy a visit to the ruins of Barnard Castle and the ever changing exhibits at the popular Bowes Museum.
This is an ideal location for guests who enjoy walking, cycling or rambling, Ashlea is very well situated for a day walking in the Durham Dales and the North Pennines. There is a public footpath that crosses through the fields behind the cottage, along the Deepdale River and then on to Barnard Castle. For more serious walkers and cyclists, guests can take a trip to Hamsterley Forest, which consist of 2000 acres of open woodland. There is the themed Gruffalo Trail for children to enjoy and also a play area for younger guests, as well as numerous picnic tables for a leisurely lunch in the great outdoors. A little further afield but still within an easy drive a trip out in the Durham Dales and the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is a must, here you can explore the magnificent landscape and natural attractions, including High Force and Low Force waterfalls. Enjoy pony trekking in the area, fishing in the lakes and rivers, exploring the nature trails, sailing, canoeing, water skiing, mountain biking and golf, all located within an easy hour’s drive from Ashlea.
Ashlea has been lovingly renovated to offer a comfortable and cosy destination for you to enjoy, relax and unwind.
