Description

Discover times past at Beamish Museum, enjoy retail therapy at the Metro Centre or watch cricket at the county ground.

Ideal touring base

This lovely detached holiday home is ideally located to discover Durham, Northumberland and the Dales, offering tranquil countryside and city life, with an abundance of wildlife and rare birds such as a pair of red kites. Offering tasteful, contemporary living accommodation, just 2 minutes by car from Beamish Museum and Tanfield Steam Engine Railway. Beamish Museum, the open-air ’Living Museum of the North’ which recreates life in the North East over various points in history, including a working coal mine, village, farm and tram system, makes a great day out. The Beamish Valley is one of the most important archaeological landscapes in England. A picturesque river setting, it boasts country inns and gastro pubs serving home cooked food. Beamish has easy access to the A1, which will take you further north to Alnwick and the Heritage Coast, where a day can be spent exploring the many historic castles and friendly villages set amongst unspoilt golden sandy beaches. Not too far away is the Metro Centre - one of the largest shopping centres in Europe with an abundance of shops and eateries. For cricket fans, Durham County Cricket Club’s ground, ’The Riverside’, is a short drive away at Chester-le-Street. The cottage is in an ideal location for exploring all the north eastern counties, while the city of Durham with its lovely cathedral and river walks should not be missed. Shops ½ mile, pub and restaurant ¼ mile.

The property is situated only a short drive from Bishop Auckland which plays host to the magical Kynren Eleven Arches spectacular from July-September 2016. Kynren - an epic tale of England - promises to be a historical extravaganza with a cast of over 1,000 people set over 7.5 acres of County Durham. There’ll be 14 action packed and movie-like performances of colossal and dazzling proportions. The shows will incorporate a full size lake with pyrotechnics, stunning lighting and water effects making it a true spectacle in every sense of the word!

Ground floor: Dining room/kitchen. 1 double bedroom with additional double sofa bed, French door and en-suite bathroom with bath, shower cubicle and toilet. Wooden floors throughout. First floor: Living room. 1 double (6ft) bedroom with en-suite bathroom with bath, shower cubicle and toilet.

    This is a very attractive, well positioned cottage within easy reach of local cities, towns and villages as well as local attractions such as the Beamish Museum. The inside does not disappoint. It is very clean, beautifully decorated and furnished. The two double bedrooms en-suite are a bonus. The cottage is well equipped, especially in the kitchen and lounge areas. The owners are helpful, on hand for assistance and leave a lovely welcome tray for visitors. I would definitely stay there again and would have no hesitation in recommending this to Family and Friends.

    The cottage is lovely, everything you need in it, in a great location and handy for lots of places, Beamish Museum is very near the cottage, we spent 2 days there, so much to do and see, we also went to Durham and the Metro Centre. Would definitely stay again.

    We enjoyed our stay here with friends. The cottage is very pretty and well equipped and furnished. It's conveniently placed for the many attractions that are on offer in the area. We also found the local people very helpful. We were disappointed to find the bedroom door upstairs didn't close properly and there was no door on the toilet which led directly into the main sitting room. We would happily return to this pretty cottage but only when these issues have been properly addressed. We noticed in the visitor book that several other people had made similar comments but nothing has changed.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your feedback and I’m sorry that the lack of a door caused such concern during your stay. However, there is in fact a door between the upstairs bedroom and the main sitting room which is fully functioning and also has a lock. The en-suite, as you say, does not lead into the lounge. Our cottage also has another en-suite bathroom, with a door, for the more modest guest. While we have had a handful of suggestions to add a door over the past 6 years, we have had hundreds of happy guests stay here without issue. Although we do everything to ensure our guests enjoy their stay, we can’t please everyone and therefore will not be changing the design layout of the cottage. The cottage is graded to Visit Britain standards and has achieved a 5* grading.

    A wonderful detached property within easy reach of Beamish Museum and a short drive to other fantastic sights and destinations such as Durham, Hardian's Wall, Newcastle and some outstanding sandy beaches and rocky coves. A working stable is adjacent to the cottage and our two children loved going out each morning to say hello to all the horses. Despite being next to a main road it is quite secluded though not completely private being so close to the stable. Inside the cottage has a mix of traditional and modern furniture and decor and a lot of very creaky floorboards - not ideal when trying to get the little ones off to sleep! All in all a very welcoming and homely place - a cake and bottle of wine greeted us on arrival - and we'd certainly go back.
