  • Mr Benyon

    “The welcome pack is generous especially the home made jam but be aware the nearest shop is a small co op 2 miles away.”

    Parking is in front of the house on the pavement. We found this unusual. Lovely neighbours very helpful.

The property

Nestled in the pretty village of Wearhead, in the Durham Dales is this superb stone cottage.

Rockwell House is the ultimate choice for friends and families to explore the wonderful North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The property boasts a bright and modern interior with high-quality furnishings, while retaining some of its period features such as the stone fireplace.

Step into the open-plan living space, where you can relax and unwind of an evening, with the warming woodburning stove to keep you toasty during those winter months, whilst the dining area provides ample space for family gatherings over a hearty breakfast.

Walk through to the open-plan kitchen, which houses a range of appliances, so you can rustle up a delicious home-cooked meal for the whole family.

The ground floor also benefits from a family bathroom and utility room, housing the laundry facilities, as well as an elegant bath and walk-in shower in case you fancy a relaxing soak in the tub to soothe those aching muscles.

Follow the steps up to the first floor, which reveals four spacious bedrooms, consisting of two super king-size doubles and two twins, all of which benefit from their own en-suite shower rooms for a small touch of luxury during your stay.

Discover the nearby Killhope Lead Mining Museum, housing displays on local mining history and boasting a play park with plenty of wildlife to spot along the way.

Venture towards the majestic Hamsterley Forest, a nature site with wooded trails for scenic walking, cycling and mountain biking, not forgetting the wonderful kid's adventure play area - perfect for you and your little ones to explore.

There are plenty of nearby rivers and lakes with opportunities for fishing and sailing, or you can take a lovely drive towards the neighbouring region of Cumbria for a plethora of attractions nearby.

Rockwell House is the place to visit for its grand walks and sightseeing opportunities.

About the location


Stanhope 7 miles; Middleton-in-Tees 12 miles; Alston 12.5 miles

This quaint County Durham village sits in Weardale in the heart of the North Pennines AONB, an area known for its excellent bird watching, cycling and walking. As well as two friendly village pubs, one serving food, St John's Chapel offers a Post Office, a shop and a couple of cafés. The nearby market town of Stanhope sits on the fringes of the AONB and offers a wider choice of amenities and an outdoor pool. The magnificent city of Durham is slightly further afield but well worth a visit, laced with tremendous architecture and much to see and do.
