Located in a quiet hamlet with walking, cycling and running routes on the doorstep.

Visit the country park at Witton Castle, the ancient ruins at Binchester Roman Fort, take a walk amongst the deer in the park at Auckland Castle and spend a day at Beamish Living Museum (all within 16 miles). The cathedral city of Durham is a must visit during your stay at 8 miles.

This inviting property is set on one level making it convenient for all the family. Come in through the front door to find the light and airy open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with hardwood flooring throughout. Relax indoors after your days out and about exploring with two comfortable sofas in the lounge and a smart TV for your entertainment. The kitchen is well-equipped to prepare a hearty meal with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, a dishwasher, and washing machine and you can all sit together for meals and planning activities at the dining table. A door from the kitchen leads out into the courtyard. At bedtime, follow the hallway leading to the two bedrooms, one with a king-size bed and plenty of storage space, and a twin bedroom with an en-suite WC. The contemporary family bathroom features a freestanding bath, a separate shower cubicle and WC.

Outside, two steps lead down into the spacious, enclosed courtyard patio furnished with a BBQ/firepit, a large bench seat, and a picnic table and seating, perfect for al fresco dining.

An extremely comfortable, cosy, spotlessly clean property that was well thought out and equipped with everything you could need. Comfy beds and linens, super shower/bathroom facilities (with plenty of hot water, at good pressure). Courtyard is lovely, sunny and private, with superb wood-fired hot tub to relax in after a days exploring! Location is Read moregreat, with so much to see and do locally, and only a short drive away from stunning coastal villages, beaches. Local pubs and restaurants fab. Hide

Enjoyed he Etsy and would go back - dog bone found under the sofa - so cleaner obviously hadnt moved it to clean. Late booking so only one bed made up and needed. Two bedrooms - quick turnaround for bedding but quilt cover was king size for single duvet - didnt complain but just details. Would definitely go back and would recommend
