Set on a working farm in a quiet, rural area close to the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this single-storey barn conversion with a hot tub and courtyard is perfect for family and friends.
Located in a quiet hamlet with walking, cycling and running routes on the doorstep. You are within easy driving reach of the popular market town of Bishop Auckland (4 miles) with its wide range of shops, galleries, a theatre, friendly pubs and restaurants. 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. Stroll along the river, choose a nice place for lunch, enjoy the Botanic Gardens and the history of Durham Castle, and with events both indoors and outdoors all year round, there is always something new to discover.
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. Hop into the wood-fired hot tub for some relaxation and gaze up at the glorious night sky to spot a shooting star. There is off-road parking for two cars.
