Within an hours’ drive of Newcastle, so after a busy day in the city enjoy the tranquillity of life in the country and attractions in the area.

This spacious holiday property opposite the River Wear in the small village of Wearhead offers superb holiday accommodation. Spectacular walks lead from the door in every direction in Weardale – ’the ‘last wilderness’. High Force, England’s highest waterfall with a 21m drop, is well worth a visit, as well as visitor centres and nature reserves in the local area. Weardale Ski Club is nearby and offers weather alerts when snow is due. The Durham Dales are England’s best kept secret, with a multitude of historic sites, Barnard Castle, Raby Castle, Killhope Lead Mining Museum (small visitor attraction of the year 2008) only 2 miles away. Close to the C2C cycle route, and great mountain biking down hill courses through Hamsterly Forest with bike hire for all ages less than half an hour away. A great area for shooting grouse and pheasant, with fishing on the Wear for salmon and sea trout on the doorstep. Fishing is also available at Burnhope Reservoir (license required), as well as next to the river, 1 mile. Hadrian’s Wall running from Newcastle to Hexham is within ½ hour’s drive. Beamish Open Air Museum, the O2 arena and the annual Great North Run at Newcastle are within 0.75 hour’s drive. The location for the film Beowolf is close by. During the festive period, visit the Polar Express at Stanhope, just a 15-minute drive away. Ideal base for both Newcastle and Sunderland arenas. Horse riding can be found nearby. Golf 10 miles. Shop 10 yards, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    Comfortable & homely, lovely roomy cottage. Kitchen was well equipped, though I did take large pans with me. Having 5 bedrooms & 3 bathrooms meant that even though there were 9 of us, we all had ample space and privacy. The location is perfect to view Raby castle, Hadrian's Wall etc., everything was about an hours drive away but the amazing scenery made the drive s pleasure. We really enjoyed our stay & would definitely like to visit such a beautiful place again. Thanks

    We enjoyed the holiday, but needed to drive over 100 miles daily to get to anything that resembled civilisation, ie the kind ofthings you noemally associate with holiday for children. We were watched very closely every day by worried neighbours as we reversed our minibus out from the very limited and awkward parking space

    Had a lovely family holiday at Rockwell cottage, owners were so obliging and welcoming. The location is superb for walking and driving to POI, however it is a little remote as we struggled to find places to eat for our large party. OK if you're prepared to drive. Only criticism is the desciption was slightly missleading when it states there is outside space for sitting. There is no disernable space which would have been a greater disappiontment if the weather was better during our stay. Would like to stay there again. Beautiful part of the country.

    Nice house in a lovely location with plenty of space. Owners were lovely and very helpful. It would be even better if the kitchen equipment was more suited to catering for large numbers staying in the house. No heavy duty pans to use on hot plates made cooking for numbers a challenge. Also fridge and freezer provision wasn't enough - could do with more freezer space. Also needed wifi - luckily we knew in advance and could bring our own. whilst the baby room is an excellent idea, we had to cover the window at night when the hall light was left on for the other children in the bunk room. It would also be good to have a shower in the family bathroom on the first floor but shower in ensuite and downstairs were great. The kids loved the big deep baths! We have stayed in the area before and unfortunately facilities in other houses nearby catered better for large numbers. We would stay again but only if we couldn't get one of the other large houses.
