  • "Leazes Cottage is a fantastic property - from the moment we stepped in we felt comfortable and "at home"."

    The kitchen was well equipped for cooking. The place itself felt spacious with plenty of storage and two bathrooms made the stay easier for our family. Beds were comfortable too. Excellent location - it is only 10 minutes walk away from the city centre. There is a designated off-road parking space as well. I would recommend Leazes cottage and hope to stay here again.

The property

Leazes Cottage, a former coach house is a charming, stone-built retreat.

The Grade-II listed building is set in one of the few green areas of Durham City yet is still within walking distance of all major amenities.

Boasting off-road parking, a collection of tasteful, traditional interiors, and a superb location just a stone's throw from the closest amenities and the tranquil River Wear, this delightful, two-bedroom abode welcomes a family, friends, or even sharing couples for a relaxing, fuss-free stay in one of the UK's most historic cities.

Enter the residents parking area to park outside the cottage in your designated parking space, taking a moment to breathe in your peaceful new setting before heading indoors.

Once inside, be greeted by an array of warm, welcoming living spaces, starting with a hallway where you can leave your coat and shoes before entering the well-equipped kitchen/diner.

Here you will find all the appliances necessary to whip up home-cooked meals or warm up a local takeaway and savour these around the spacious table in front of the electric fire.

With bellies full, head to the sitting room, an inviting space that serves as the social hub of the home that offers plush seating, a TV, and an elegant electric fireplace to keep you nice and toasty as you plan the rest of your itinerary.

When the sun sets and your eyes grow weary, escape to the ground-floor bathroom to rejuvenate with a bath or shower before you finally catch your valuable rest in either a double or twin bedroom.

Start your mornings with a coffee whilst perched on the bench outside before you slip your shoes on and explore the boundless delights that Durham has to offer.

A world-renowned cathedral city, bisected by the River Wear and home to the prestigious Durham University, visitors will find a wealth of exciting things to do and see during their visit, whether that's joining a tour of the eponymous Durham Cathedral or Castle, snapping photos of the Stone Gargoyle Chair, The Durham Cow, or Umbrella Alley, or stepping back in time at the National Trust site of Crook Hall Gardens or within the Durham Museum and Heritage Centre; The Gala Theatre and Indoor Market, in addition to the train station are also only a short walk away.

Boasting a wonderful location for families to attend events at Durham University such as graduation and open days, there is certainly something for everyone here.

A short drive away from your new lodgings will also take you to the Beamish Museum, the Botanic Garden, located at Durham University, as well as to the Adventure Valley theme park, and Diggerland Durham, perfect for families.

Enjoy the ultimate escape to Durham when you book Leazes Cottage.

About the location


Chester-le-Street 11 miles; Newcastle upon Tyne 21 miles;

Situated in one of the most beautiful counties of England, Durham city is one of the jewels in England’s crown. Dominated by the historic centre, a World Heritage Site, the city is home to magnificent Durham Cathedral, with its breath-taking vaulted ceiling and splendid architecture. The cathedral, the final resting place of the Venerable Bede, is one of the finest examples of Norman architecture in the whole of Europe. Durham Castle stands side by side with the cathedral, on a prominent hilltop site, encircled by the wooded slopes of the River Wear below. The city itself offers elegant buildings and fascinating narrow streets with excellent shopping, eating and drinking to suit all tastes. Add to that the ease of access to the rest of this historic county, “Land of the Prince Bishops”, and Durham has much to offer the discerning traveller, from Medieval castles to marvellous landscapes and scenic walks.
