Overview

About the property

Superb cosy holiday cottage in a very quiet rural setting, on the edge of the Roman Fort in the Vale of Durham. Close to all amenities - shops, bus, restaurants, coffee shops and cycle tracks. The rear porch is ideal for cycle storage. Private parking.

Virtually on the doorstep of Durham City and all its heritage. Beamish Museum (the living museum of the North), Tanfield Railway, several golf courses and other sports venues.

Central to the Durham Dales and Heritage coast with wonderful places to visit, High Force, Raby Castle and Bowes Museum are just a few of many.

Drive, cycle or walk at your leisure and just absorb the surroundings of pure natural beauty. There is something of everyone in this small and wonderful county.

The cottage consists of two bedrooms, one double and one single. Lounge/sitting room, kitchen/diner with dish washer, bathroom with bath and overhead shower, toilet and was basin, double glazed with gas central heating and lovely coal effect open flamed gas fire. Small lawned front garden and open drive in yard to rear, with extra parking to the side if needed.

A very short walk to the bus stop for Durham and Newcastle.

Clean and cosy property

  • 4 of 5

Lanchester is a good place to stay, an attractive village/town with plenty of coffee shops and restaurants, and within easy reach of Durham. The property itself was adequate for all our needs, and we enjoyed our three-night stay.

Needs a lot of work

  • 2 of 5

We didn't enjoy stay at cottage , mattresses very poor condition and we found it difficult to sleep. toilet seat and toilet door handle broken. We found the cottage to have a musty smell. Location was good and within walking distance to bars and restaurants which was lucky as we weren't keen on eating in house.

A great little cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was well maintained and had everything we expected from the description.. It is in a great spot to explore the lovely country of Durham and Northumberland. It is well positioned with an easy walk to the shops in the charming village of Lanchester and its many restaurants. An easy bus ride to Durham. We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 days in the cottage.

Cosy comfortable cottage

We had a great few days. Comfortable homely little cottage which had everything we needed. Walks along the cycle route to the river & picnic area were lovely. Lots to do in the area. Hope to visit again.
