The property

St John's Chapel 1.7 miles.

Surrounded by landscapes of heather moorland and rolling dales within the quaint village of Westgate is this charming terrace dwelling, 2 West Haswicks.

This rural hideaway has been designed with a couple or a small family in mind and is perfect for those seeking a refreshing escape from everyday life or for exploring the North Pennines AONB, an area renowned for its bird-watching, cycling and walking.

Be welcomed into the sitting room, where a plush L-shape sofa awaits you after an action-packed day and the woodburning stove offers extra comfort during those winter months.

Beyond here is the contemporary-styled kitchen, where the quality appliances invite you to rustle up a delicious evening meal or prepare a picnic to take on your trips to explore the countryside setting.

During a summer’s evening, look forward to enjoying a spot of alfresco dining within the rear garden, where the surrounding views and countryside soundtrack can be admired as you tuck into your meal.

As the sun sets, retire to one of the well-presented bedrooms, comprising of a double bedroom and a single bedroom.

Each bedroom is benefited by its own TV, ample storage and an idyllic ambiance to wake up to each morning.

If you can tear yourself away from this wonderful spot, a stone’s throw away is the village pub with a delicious dining menu and friendly atmosphere to complement.

For a larger selection of eateries and a shop, a short car journey will find you in St John's Chapel or the bustling town of Bishop Auckland.

Here, you will be spoilt for choice by the pubs and eateries that await you for refuelling, with something to cater to all tastes.

Whilst here, brush up on the local history by discovering Durham’s castles, including Finchale Priory and the ruins of the 12 century Bowes Castle, or spend some time at the open air museum of The Bowes Museum in the Durham Dales which plays host to the significant fine arts.

For those feeling active, look forward to exploring miles of walking and cycle routes upon Durham’s great outdoors or for thrill-seekers try a parachute jump to enjoy the AONB from a different angle.

2 West Haswicks is a superb base for an action-packed holiday with your loved ones.

About the location

WESTGATE

Westgate is a small village in Weardale, popular for walking and cycling. Westgate once marked the boundary of Stanhope Park, the scene of many grand, historical, hunting expeditions. Nearby is Slit Wood, a site of Special Scientific Interest, with interesting footpaths and delightful waterfalls. Westgate is set in rural countryside and is home to a pub, whilst further amenities can be found in the village of Stanhope, five 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. Stanhope is home to the Durham Dales Centre, offering tourist information, a coffee shop and local arts and crafts. In addition it offers a selection of pubs, specialist food stores, an art gallery, outdoor swimming pool and pleasant riverside walks.
