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.

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.

    It was stated that this cottage was in a tranquil setting. There is a very busy road just feet from it. Not tranquil at all. Needed a good clean. The waste bin in the kitchen was disgusting.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Our cottage is situated on a 60 acre farm overlooking beautiful valley views. The cottage is located behind an embankment and is actually 47 feet from the road. Within this distance there is a boundary of very high and dense hedge row and 20 Ft trees. We thought the reason you had booked the cottage was for the proximity to a relatively close bus stop, which you and your husband took most days to visit the region and seemed to enjoy. The cottage is serviced by a cleaning company and has not had any previous issues; however I have since spoken to them regarding your complaint. We would have appreciated your concerns while you were staying with us and would have rectified any problems immediately. We make sure we go above and beyond to make sure our guests have an enjoyable holiday whilst staying at Mole Hill Cottage.

    A lovely homely cottage, well equipped with very comfy beds and wonderful views. We loved having the horses as neighbours and Amanda, the owner, was very friendly and helpful. It is an absolute ideal location for visiting Beamish Living Museum just down the road, which was our main reason for being there. Also don't miss a ride on the the Tanfield Railway (mostly only Sundays), shops and some lovely places to eat very close by. The only downside for us was the constant traffic noise from busy road, but have to confess that we noticed it more as we are not used to it at home.
