  • "A restorative and much-needed half term break in this peaceful and tranquil cottage!"

    Pleasant views, comfy beds, and a cosy sitting room

  • "Super cottage, well equipped with everything you need, a real ‘home from home’."

    It is well situated on the edge of the village with picturesque countryside all around. Lots to see and do locally, but if you don’t mind a little driving, Beamish, Eden Camp and Whitby are a good day out.

  • "We had a lovely week."

    The cottage had plenty of cleaning materials (washing up liquid, hand soap etc). Beds were very comfortable. The well-stocked co op was just a short walk away. Church View cottage was in a perfect location for seeing many of the attractions in the area. We would be very happy to stay there again.

  • "A lovely comfortable cottage with beautiful kitchen."

    Very comfortable beds and close to beautiful walk’s just outside the house. Lovely views and handy local co-op. Nearby is Raby Castle, barnard Castle, Bishop Auckland with nearby Roman Fort and Durham were all close and worth a visit. Please note local pub does not do food. But there is a good local Chinese takeout for your first night.

  • "Church view cottage is well equipped, comfortable and very conveniently located in a village with pubs, shops and an usually regular bus service."

    My only negative is that the fridge is far too small. It's worth mentioning that car parking space is only suitable for short cars.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. The fridge is being replaced next week with a larger unit and ice box. The joining instructions didn't make it clear that the entire space at the front of the property is off the public highway, and therefore it is not a problem if your vehicle doesn't fit on the area of concrete directly in front of the property. We note your comments and will amend the details in the property to avoid confusion. Property Owner

The property

Perched in the pretty village of Cockfield in Durham, is this idyllic two-bedroom cottage, Church View Cottage.

Named after its picturesque views looking across to St Marys Church and enjoying a fabulous location on the outskirts of the North Pennines AONB, Church View Cottage is a superb pet-friendly dwelling for couples or a family of four.

Look forward to cooking up a storm in the well-equipped kitchen/diner, where you can tuck-in to a delicious meal at the dining table for four as you recount the days adventures.

After dinner, why not soak up the last of the day’s rays out in the rear, enclosed garden?

As the evening grows dark, retire to the sitting room, where you can snuggle up on the plush seating in front of a much-loved show on the TV.

Climb the stairs up to the first floor, where you can wash away the day with a soak in the bath or freshen up under the overhead shower.

When your eyes grow heavy, retreat to one two well-presented bedrooms, a double and a twin, to catch your rest.

Explore the local village, where you can dine out at The Queens Head, order in from Taste of China, or stock up on essentials at the well-stocked convenience store.

Be sure to visit nearby Staindrop, home to the magnificent Raby Castle Park and Gardens, complete with deer park, along with the eateries of The Wheatsheaf Inn and The Country Tea Shop & Restaurant.

Continue on to Bishop Auckland, where you can tour the Auckland Castle and Deer House, test out your swing at the excellent golf club, or delve into history at the Bishop Auckland People’s Museum.

Further afield, you will find Durham, with its remarkable cathedral, Crook Hall and Gardens and impressive castle.

There is so much to see and do with a stay at Church View Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
