About Rosemary Butler

Rosemary and Paul live and work in Bishop Auckland. They moved here in 2014.

Rosemary Butler purchased this house in 2016

Why Rosemary Butler chose Bishop Auckland

This family house is well situated to explore the wonders of the area and region.

Bishop Auckland is going through exciting times as Auckland Castle is developed into a major visitor attraction. "Kynren" is one of the Rough Guides Top 10 new world attractions for 2016. A new Spanish and Latin American Art Gallery (with the Prado) and Coal miners Gallery are also being created and lots of local arts and crafts emerging.

Binchester Roman Fort gives fascinating insights into the Roman world.

This adds to an already beautiful area of outstanding natural beauty in Weardale and Teesdale alongside the ever improving Durham coastline.

Durham City is a world heritage site full of places to explore and discover plus it's beautiful Botanic Gardens

We are the home of railway heritage with the Stockton-Darlington line the world's first railway.

Escomb is the most complete Saxon church in England.

Towns like Darlington, Stockton and Hartlepool offer surprising delights.

Newcastle, Gateshead and Sunderland all offer many attractions.

What makes this house unique

"Kynren" is just 10 minutes walk away so we are the nearest holiday house to let to it.

This is a town house from which you can walk to a range of restaurants and pubs as well as Auckland Castle and Park and surrounding countryside.

You can reach us easily from Bishop Auckland Station and Bus Station so if you do not have a car we are a base from which you can explore.

We aim to offer excellent value for money.

As we live nearby we are able to keep our own eyes on the property and welcome our guests. Having used self catering ourselves over the years we have aimed to equip the house as we like to find others.

A delightful home from home

  • 4 of 5

Had a lovely short break in this well equipped & comfortable property with a great view from the rear over the Wear valley. Everything in the town was within easy walking distance. There are great places to visit in the surrounding area. We hope to visit again soon. It is to be highly recommended.

Home from home

You cannot fault this house. They have not forgotten anything to make your stay enjoyable. When we arrived there was a welcome tray with hot cross buns and a Easter egg, milk and a bottle of Wine. We went out every day and enjoyed the area. We loved it that much we have booked it again next year. Thank you Rosemary for making this a lovely Easter with the family.

Great holiday house in good location

  • 4 of 5

The house is clean, welcoming and nicely decorated with local art and photos. The kitchen is roomy and has everything you'd need. The beds are new and comfortable and we all slept well.

There's plenty of parking about 20 metres from the house around the corner.

The Wi-Fi was speedy enough to keep the kids happy in the evenings.

Bishop Auckland is a great place to stay for families with many attractions within a short drive.

We thoroughly recommend this holiday house.
