The cottage

Charmingly sat in the heart of quaint St John's Chapel village in County Durham is this beautifully furnished stone cottage.

In an ideal location to enjoy scenic walking, and with alluring accommodation for four people, this terrace is perfect for couples, friends or families looking to get away in rural County Durham.

As you enter this mid-terrace home-away-from-home, be welcomed immediately by the alluring sitting room, bursting with homely features while being dominated by a fabulous woodburning stove to give the property a year-round appeal.

Ample snug seating and a Freeview TV make this an ideal place to put your feet up after each day of activity and exploration.

Wander through into the farmhouse-style kitchen/diner, this charming layout is lined with fresh cream units and a rustic wooden dining table.

Both bedrooms at the cottage play host to comfortable super king-size beds within tasteful layouts, both also benefit from flexible zip/link beds so you can accommodate parties of all kinds.

The interior concludes sumptuously with a stunning family bathroom, the cool monochrome layout and exquisite fittings give it a real touch of class.

St John's Chapel's charming amenities lie right on your doorstep, with a pleasant assortment of pubs and a lovely café to sit and relax in.

This superb cottage sits in an ideal spot for enjoying renowned walking and cycling paths, with some simply breath-taking scenery on offer throughout the North Pennines AONB.

This gorgeous landscape is dotted with charming little villages waiting to be visited, while attractive and well-stocked towns including Stanhope and Middleton-on-Tees are easily reachable, and offer much to the visitor.

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.
