Stunning countryside, a gorgeous historic city and a wealth of
visitor attractions all contribute to the timeless appeal of County
First stop, the city of Durham oozing charm and offering lots to
see and do. From its splendid Romanesque cathedral and castle (a
World Heritage Site), to its tiny, cobbled streets crammed with
delightful galleries, boutiques and eateries, there's not much
this city doesn't have. Enjoy a boat trip along the river,
explore the romantic gardens of Crook Hall, or visit the renowned
Head out of town to the emerald valleys of the Durham Dales, the
rugged cliffs of the Heritage Coast, or the North Pennines Area of
Outstanding Natural Beauty, where velvet moors unfurl to
quintessential stone-built villages.
Such landscapes beg to be explored and walkers will delight with
the choice of public footpaths, including the fabled Pennine Way.
There are great opportunities for cyclists too, with long distance
routes weaving through the region, plus adrenalin-pumping off-road
thrills at Hamsterley Forest.
During your County Durham cottage holiday, do something
different and try 4x4 driving, quad biking or archery. Have fun on
the water fishing, sailing and water-skiing. Most golf clubs
welcome visitors and courses range from 27-hole championship to
demanding seaside links.
There are award-winning museums such as the open-air Beamish
Museum and the grand château-style Bowes Museum, historic
jewels like Raby Castle, along with family attractions including
adventure farm parks and Diggerland.
So next time you're planning a holiday, consider a County
Durham cottage - you won't be disappointed!
