    Nestled behind the owners’ home, yet surrounded by acres of open countryside and farmland, this spacious holiday cottage enjoys fabulous views from every angle - as far as Middleton, Richmond and the Pennines on a sunny day. Perfect for walkers, Bolam is a small village in County Durham that is home to a well established, local pub which serves top quality food and drink. There are many public footpaths, bridleways and cycle paths which criss cross through the area and will take guests through natural woodland, open fields and across to many of the small, surrounding local villages and towards the Durham Dales. Explore Durham with its castle, cathedral, theatre, leisure centre and eateries. It also hosts many festivals during the year. A little further afield are Binchester Roman Fort, Raby Castle, Bowes Museum, Bishop Auckland, Barnard Castle and Darlington. Other places of interest are Beamish Museum, Hadrian’s Wall, the Northumberland coast, Kielder National Park, York, Newcastle, the Angel of the North and the Metrocentre. Shop 5 miles, pub and restaurant 1 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 case of over 1,000 people set over 7.5 acres of County Durham.
