Overview

About the property

Extremely spacious family friendly two bedroom cottages with lovely rural views.

Merrington Grange Cottages have been sympathetically converted from redundant barns, to produce two very attractive, fully equipped properties that are ideal for a comfortable and relaxed stay.

Located near to Durham City, the delightful Garth and Meadow Cottages offer an abundance of space and luxurious comfort. These cottages are also located in highly peaceful surroundings, while being close enough to the A1 motorway to allow for easy travel.

The beams have been retained in both cottages and achieve a rustic charm, while the arched windows provide delightful views of the surrounding countryside. Both cottages offer en-suite facilities and a fully equipped kitchen. The south-facing patios also come complete with garden furniture and allow for glorious views of the Cleveland hills. We are ideally situated for a quiet and relaxing break away from the busyness of life.

Garth Cottage is a superb two-bedroom cottage and boasts a very picturesque and serene location. It provides a double bedroom with an en suite bathroom (complete with a corner bath) and a twin-bedded room with an en suite shower. The beamed lounge area is spacious and allows for glorious views of the Cleveland Hills. The kitchen/dining area is also light and airy and equipped to a very high standard, while arched windows and doors lead onto a pretty south-facing patio, which, complete with garden furniture, is particularly pleasant on summer afternoons.

Meadow Cottage is a two-bedroom conversion, offering peace and quiet in superb surroundings. Meadow Cottage is on one level, with a double bedroom and an en suite wet room and a twin-bedded room with en suite shower. Extra luxury is added with a spacious and airy beamed lounge, which adjoins the fully-equipped kitchen with dining area. Arched windows and doors also lead onto a lovely south-facing patio, complete with garden furniture, which provides glorious views of the Cleveland Hills.

Facilities in both cottages include:

Full oil central heating throughout

Electric log effect stove

Fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, electric cooker, fridge, microwave and toaster

Lovely cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The property was very clean and comfortable. It is situated in a very quiet location with uninterrupted views over farmland from the living area, but within easy reach of the nearby towns. It also offers easy access to the main routes, making exploring the area easy.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Garth Cottage, and hope to return in the future.

Cosy home from home with beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay in Garth Cottage. It was very comfortable, warm (the local weather was sunny but bracing!) and well equipped and the view over gently rolling hills was incredibly peaceful. It was well placed for our family events in Durham and Middlesbrough and for lots of sightseeing. We hope to return in the future.

Absolutely Brillant place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was beautiful inside, lovely and clean and had everything you could possibly need. For people with disabilities it is a well equipped and layer out cottage. The view from the lovely garden across all the fields is stunning and the farm animals are beautiful and lovely to sit and watch over a glass of wine. The cottage is in a great location for seeing the castles,museums,etc all within easy reach and i highly recommend a visit to the Beamish museum ,

Well to returning.

Great Durham holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5

This holiday cottage was one of the best we have stayed in and we have been to many across the country. It was comfortable, very spacious, well equipped and in a superb location. Very peaceful and with lovely views across open countryside. The cottage has been converted to a very high standard. We really enjoyed watching the animals which visited the garden, rabbits, hares, pheasants and a small herd of friendly white cows looking over the fence each morning. It was a wonderful holiday location and we can't recommend it highly enough.

Location

Car: recommended

Durham and Auckland Castles including Kynren are within easy reach of Merrington Grange, along with Low Barnes Nature Reserve, which is considered one of Durham Wildlife Trust’s premier reserves.

Weardale is at the heart of the Durham Dales. It is the perfect location for getting outdoors and going walking or cycling and there are many exhibitions, festivals and events throughout the year.

And you can also find an excellent selection of country pubs and quality restaurants in the area.

With the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, East Coast and cities of Durham, Newcastle and York all within easy driving distance, this is an ideal base from which to visit the sights of North East England.

Nearby attractions include:

Kynren

Hardwick Park

Hartlepool Marina

Killhope Lead Mining Museum

Crook Hall Gardens

National Railway Museum

Durham Heritage Coast

Durham City

Durham Cathedral
