Old stone cottage is a delightful extremely clean and well maintained three bedroomed cottage set just outside of Durham.

It is ideally situated should you want to go to Durham,Newcastle,hadrians wall or indeed to just stay in and relax.it is close to the A1 and wasn't difficult to find and there is also a regular bus service into Durham ( we caught the into Durham which took about 15 mins and then caught a train into Newcastle )

The cottage really exceeded our expectations the kitchen was well equipped with everything you could possibly need for a short stay,both bathrooms were impeccably clean with a fantastic walk in shower in one of them.all three bedrooms were clean with good quality bedding and towels and we all agreed our beds were very comfortable.the living room had two large leather sofas freeview tv and free wifi.

The village itself was a short stroll and had a co/op a bakery and a pub to name a few.

Lynne the owner left a file with a comprehensive guide to the area and beyond,there are lots of walks in and around Sherburn then you have the beautiful architectural cathedral city of Durham with its hidden cobbled streets with fantastic tea rooms and restaurants.the amazing beamish museum is only twenty minutes away and is well worth a visit,then about an hour away is hadrians wall with its many visitor attractions not to forget fantastic walks with fabulous views of Northumberland.my personal favourite part of the north east has to be its coastline and if you get the chance to drive up the coastal route to bamburgh it will take your breath away it's absolutely stunning.

We all enjoyed our stay and will be back again real soon as it's in a prime location and a real home from home.

Lovely comfortable house 2-3 miles from Durham

  • 4 of 5

Lovely clean house, very spacious, with plenty of seating in lounge. Owner very helpful and approachable, the one downside was only four chairs provided for the kitchen table despite house sleeping six. There were however 2 patio chairs in the hall cupboard which we resorted to. Very handy having 2 bathrooms.

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

Great base for visiting family & taking my children around the north east. Really well equipped, spacious cottage, two bathrooms a definite bonus. Central to everything but also a nice family space, my children loved it and every visiting family member was impressed at what a lovely place we had booked. Definitely visiting again. Couldn't be happier to have found this gem!

Pretty cottage close to Durham

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 3 days in this pretty, cleanly and well-equiped cottage.

From the close-by field for dog walks, you can already see Durham.

Don't miss the Housesteads Roman Fort and the Hadrian's Wall (one hour) and the Beamish Museum (20 min).
