About Amanda Simpson

I have lived in the village next to the cottage for 20 years and work on the farm. The cottage was converted 10 years ago.

Why Amanda Simpson chose County Durham

The property was converted in 2004, it had originally been a cottage, but not used for many years. It sits overlooking the village green and Church and is very quiet, ideal for guests wishing to sit in the garden and read a book.

The cottage is in a no through road village.

What makes this cottage unique

Binks Cottage is situated on a working farm, Thornley Hall Farm, there is also a hill farm 17 miles away, Glenwhelt. We encourage our guests to visit the farm and walk the public footpaths in the area where you will be able to see dry stonewalling, animals in fields and wildlife.

We welcome the opportunity to show you around Thornley Hall farm and Glenwhelt, if you are interested please ask.

A beautifully kept and well appointed holiday cottage.

  • 5 of 5

This is a super holiday rental for those wanting to explore the North Pennines and/or northern cities such as Durham and Newcastle, which are within easy reach by car. We were extremely well provided for upon arrival and had everything we needed for our baby - cot, blankets, bath tub - as well as thoughtful extras for ourselves. Would highly recommend.
