Description

Peacefully set amid the rolling countryside of a 200-acre sheep farm, this collection of cottages have been converted from the old farm stables, bakery and dairy, have their own individual character and retain many of their original features

Peacefully set amid the rolling countryside of a 200-acre sheep farm, this collection of cottages has been converted from the old farm stables, bakery and dairy, have their own individual character and retain many of their original features. The tranquil location makes this the perfect place to relax and unwind while the many footpaths and cycle routes are an excellent way to enjoy the surrounding countryside and views. Situated on the Durham/Northumberland border, Derwent Grange is ideally located for exploring the many attractions both counties have to offer. The historic city of Durham, with its magnificent cathedral and river boat trips, the market town of Barnard Castle with its 12th-century castle, and medieval Raby Castle are all just a short drive away. The award-winning Beamish Open Air Museum is just 13 miles away, and is well worth a visit. Newcastle and Gateshead offer an array of museums and art galleries along with excellent shopping and are only 18 miles away. The breathtaking scenery of the Northumberland National Park is within half an hour’s drive as is Hadrian’s Wall. A little further afield are Alnwick Castle and Gardens while the castles and gloriously unspoilt coastline of Northumberland are around an hour’s drive. Shop and pub serving food 1 mile.

All on ground floor: Living room/dining area/kitchen. 1 double bedroom. Bathroom with shower over bath and toilet.

Woodburner in living room (initial fuel included). Gas central heating included. Cot. DVD. Table-top oven with two ring hob. Small patio area.

All properties: Electricity, bed linen and towels included. High chair. Freeview TV. CD. Microwave. Washing machine and tumble dryer in shared laundry room (at cost). Garden and furniture. Barbecue. Private parking for 2 cars. Private water supply.

    Had a great holiday, however, accommodation could have been better. It was not an expensive price and the cottage reflected this.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thanks for your feedback, and we are pleased that you had a great holiday! Unfortunately you do not say where you found fault within the cottage - indeed when we spoke to you before you left, you told us you had been very happy. As you said, the Forge Cottage is the least expensive of our cottages, but we believe that with just one double room, that it is perfect for couples or people travelling alone. The photos for the listing show just how the cottage is - actually, the bathroom has been completely replaced since the photos were taken, the TV has been replaced with a 32" flat screen (with integral DVD), and the couch in the living area has been replaced with a leather suit. I hope that this will help any future potential guests reading the review.

    It is in an idyllic setting on a sheep farm. Ignore google maps, it's in the farm yard. The water is an interesting colour but perfectly harmless and refreshingly lacking in that city chlorine flavour we're used to. The people are lovely, so are the sheep and the dogs. It's down a long narrow winding farm track with grass growing down the middle. One just has to pray that nobody is coming in the opposite direction, but they seldom were, otherwise you are practicing reversing.

    Ideal as a base to explore the local area. Plenty of amenities just a few miles away. Beautiful, peaceful location.
