The property

This stone-built cottage sits in an end-terrace location, overlooking the breath-taking countryside of the North Pennines AONB in Cowshill.

With a number of scenic walks and cycle paths from your doorstep, 1 Braeside is an ideal spot to base an outdoor adventure break with your friends or family.

A delightful porch welcomes you upon arrival, a wonderful place to sit with your morning coffee and enjoy the landscapes nearby.

Step through into a homely sitting room with a TV/DVD and a wonderful multi-fuel stove, which makes this country cottage desirable all-year-round.

A beautiful and spacious kitchen/diner also lies on the ground floor, boasting rustic stone flooring and glistening, modern units hosting a good range of appliances.

A carpeted staircase brings you to the first floor, where you can find a family bathroom as well as two bedrooms.

The master double bedroom benefits from an antique dressing table and a fabulous feature fireplace completes the layout delightfully.

Cowshill's village pub rests just a short walk away, making an excellent return after a day of trekking the surrounding countryside.

St John's Chapel is just over two miles away, benefiting from a couple of pubs, a shop and a café.

For a wider range of amenities, head to Stanhope, one of many lovely towns in the area, others include Middleton-in-Tees and Alston.

The majestic city of Durham is within driving distance and is certainly worth a visit.

A well-located cottage brimming with character.

Wearhead is a small village in County Durham at the top of Weardale.

Wearhead is set in rural countryside with the nearest shop being 3 miles away in St John's Chapel, and further amenities can be found in the village of Stanhope, ten miles away.

Stanhope is described as the "Capital of Weardale" as it occupies a sheltered position on the north side of the Wear at the confluence of the river and the Stanhope burn.
