Just under a one mile walk away from the pretty village of Frosterley in the Durham Dales, White Nettle Cottage is the ideal location for guests wanting to explore the local area. Boasting a variety of excellent pubs serving local food and ales, as well as an excellent fish and chip shop and a number of small shops and convenience store, Frosterley has everything that guests might need to enjoy a peaceful break in this picturesque area. Perfectly located for walkers and cyclists, White Nettle Cottage lies just a short distance away from the popular Weardale Way.
Recognised as being an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Durham Dales consist of rugged upland, wild flower meadows, fertile river valleys and majestic waterfalls. There are plenty of public footpaths, bridleways, walks and cycle paths for guests to explore and enjoy the magnificent scenery of this unspoilt area. The popular town of Stanhope is just under 3 miles away where guests will be able to visit the Durham Dales Visitor Centre to find out even more about the area, enjoy a browse around the small shopping area or stay for a spot of lunch in the café. Stanhope also lies on the famous Coast to Coast Cycle Route so is also a great destination for keen cyclists too. Killhope with its lead mining museum, Hamsterley Forest, Barnard Castle, Bishop Auckland, and many quaint villages that dot the landscape including Wolsingham, St John’s Chapel, Eggleston and Middleton-in-Teesdale can all be reached by car in less than an hour. The Cathedral City of Durham is only 18 miles away and can be reached in a 35-minute drive south west. To the north, guests will be able to explore the historic sights and settlements of Northumberland and to the east is the county of Cumbria and the Lake District.

    A perfect holiday cottage in a fabulous location, stunning views in both directions. There was a welcome pack of bread, chocolates, biscuits and wine on arrival, with fresh flowers in the kitchen. The cottage's decoration is exactly right - clean and fresh while absolutely in keeping with the age of the cottage. Lots of characterful touches too such as the lamps on the bedside tables, comfy cushions and throws to make the place really snug. Great weather so we didn't need the log burner but am sure it would be really cosy in colder weather too. Ample parking for us at the front and a lovely secure sun-trap garden at the back. Sharon and James have thought of everything to make it the ideal base for exploring Weardale.

    Lovely cottage with views over open fields and within walking distance to a great pub. We had a lovely warm welcome from the owners and a wonderful welcome gift of wine, chocolates, fresh flowers and home baked bread and biscuits! The cottage is homely, well equipped and lovely comfortable beds. Would highly recommend.
