Cottage Location

  • "Such a lovely house equipped with everything you could need"

    We explored the local towns, Durham, Newcastle, Auckland Castle, Raby Castle, Hamsterley Forest and played Golf at Brancepeth Castle. All of which were fab days out and fell in love with the scenery and local life. Valerie was a brilliant host and this house was fantastic.

  • "A most excellent break"

    Comfortable and warm, we wanted for nothing. A beautiful part of the country

  • "We have had a wonderful holiday lots of space to spread about."

    We enjoyed the garden and BBQ and the boys especially enjoyed the pool table. We spent a day at South Shields, did a lovely bike ride through Hamsterley Forest and a spent a day at Alnwick Castle. We even had fun when it rained!
