Visit Lanchester from this property, a village steeped in history dating back to the 12th century, with some local amenities.

This charming, detached former Hemel, close to the owners’ home, lies just 1½ miles from the historic village of Lanchester and only 10 miles from Durham. Lanchester is steeped in history dating back to the 12th century and it has a large village green which sits in the middle of some charming properties, with 3 village inns and eateries to hand. Cyclists will be eager to explore the quiet country roads or take the Derwent Valley Railway Path east to the outskirts of Durham, or west to join the Waskerly Way and on to Weardale. A walk can be taken along these footpaths, the section just south of Lancaster skirting the river Browney being a particular highlight. Corbridge is a mere 15 miles away with super pubs, tea rooms and shops, then carry on to Hadrian’s Wall to visit the Roman forts or a little further to Hexham, with its beautiful abbey. Enjoy Durham with its river walks, fine cathedral, bijou wine bars, traditional pubs and plenty of retail therapy. Alnwick Castle where part of the Harry Potter films were made takes approximately 1 hour, where you can visit the enchanting water gardens and treehouse, and stroll along the cobbled streets. Drive a little further north and follow the Heritage Coastal Route to come across Seahouses and Bamburgh, and the enchanting Holy Island or Lindasfarne, making a great day trip. Come back and relax at this holiday cottage, admiring the views outside after a day’s exploring. Consett 3 miles. Children’s play area 1½ miles. Shop and pub 1½ miles, restaurant ½ mile.

    Lovely, comfortable cottage in a very quiet location. Appreciated being surrounded by farmland with views of the animals and wildlife. Landlord and landlady very helpful and friendly.

    An excellent place to stay, really modern, well presented and smart and in very pleasant surroundings but there are a few minor things that could be easily addressed, particularly for those that stay there while working rather than on holiday: 1. Kitchen equipment needs a few basic additions including a colander, sieve, decent grater and a couple of decent extra kitchen knives (plus sharpener); 2. There should be at least one rack to dry clothes on. There were none during my stay. 3. The bed is very uncomfortable and the duvet inadequate for anything but mid summer 4. A fenced area so that those who bring dogs can let them outside unsupervised would be useful, especially since the owners allow people to bring dogs.
