The Old Miners Hall can only be described as simply stunning. With attention to detail in every corner and crevice, this beautiful home boasts 5* fixtures and fittings throughout. With limestone flagged flooring downstairs, exposed stone walls and a beautiful glass door leading into the hallway, guests will find themselves surrounded by traditional features with a modern and luxurious feel. The Old Miners Bath House sits right next door to The Old Miners Hall and is just the perfect destination for a quiet romantic break. Dressing gowns, slippers and a bottle of fizz with fresh flowers will be presented upon arrival. All on one level and ideal for guests who struggle to climb the stairs, this cottage has been furnished beautifully. To the side of the property guests will find their own private hot tub hidden away within its own summerhouse, making it the most fabulous spot for an evening relaxing and enjoying a well-earned break. Alternatively explore the fabulous countryside, with walking and cycling close by. A great location for peace, quiet and romance, The Old Miners Bath House is the perfect destination at any time of year.
A perfect paradise for walkers, cyclists and nature lovers, these semi-detached cottages lie amidst an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and have far-reaching views across the Durham Dales. With a variety of established public footpaths, walks and cycle paths leading from Burnside, through the village of Rookhope and further out into the county itself. Guests will find themselves alongside the famous Coast to Coast cycle route, which stretches from the coast of Cumbria to the award-winning beaches of the north east. With a small shop, post office and local pub serving great quality food and drink, the village of Rookhope is a traditional and welcoming one and lies just under a mile away. A little further afield, but still only six miles away, guests will be able to visit the very popular market town of Stanhope. With a traditional high street bustling with small eateries, local pubs and independent shops Stanhope is a popular destination at any time of year. The local fish and chip shop is renowned as being one of the best in the county and the small traditional sweet shop is a great destination for guests of all ages. Stanhope is also home to the Durham Dales Visitor Centre which is always popular with guests wanting to find out more about the area. The heated, open air swimming pool is a popular spot in the summer months and is open from May –September for guests brave enough to take the plunge! The popular Weardale Steam Railway has a stop at Stanhope too, and is a great way to see the countryside over the 18-mile stretch of railway. Guests with families must make sure to book ahead for the magnificent Train to Christmas Town journey over the winter months. Other popular villages in the area are Killhope which is home to the Lead Mining Museum, Allenheads, Frosterley, St John’s Chapel and Alston. A little further afield but still within an hour’s drive guests will be able to take a trip to the cathedral city of Durham which is famous for its cathedral and castle as well as many outdoor festivals including the Brass festival, Book Festival, jazz festival and Lumiere. The abbey town of Hexham, chic Corbridge, Hamsterley, Newcastle upon Tyne, Barnard Castle, Bishop Auckland and the fabulous beaches of the Northumberland coast offer guests plenty to visit, enjoy and explore in the region. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
These properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 14 guests.

    Well what can we say! This cottage was pefect for everything we needed which was relaxation, coziness and picturesque scenery. The owner Nicola was so accommodating, nothing was ever a bother and she was always willing to go the extra mile whether it was passing on valuable local knowledge or simply giving us an extra set of towels. The cottage was so warm and inviting, perfect for cuddling up in the bad weather and with a sparkling clean hot tub, a barbecue and beautiful walks on our doorstep, we always made the best of the good weather. This was the perfect place to celebrate our anniversary with a bottle of bubbly to kick it off in style! We will be staying again with our four legged friend who also had a cracking break away and was treated like royalty. We reccomend any dog lovers, romantic couples or peace seekers to stay here! Thanks again for a magical week. Love, the Bedford’s xxx

    I had a wonderful time. Just the location let it down and you have walk out property and across the car park to get to the hot tub. Otherwise the property was clean, well decorated and cosy.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Dear Ibrar, thank you so much for taking the time to review The Old Miners Bath House. The Cottage sits in a rural area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It’s a pity the weather was so wintry when you stayed as you really didn’t get an opportunity to experience the location at its best. Thanks again for your feedback.
