The property

Nested in a quiet suburb on the outskirts of the historic city of Durham rests this traditional cottage, 14 Lowes Barn Bank.

Boasting a quaint exterior decorated with eye-catching ivy, 14 Lowes Barn Bank is the idyllic base for a small family looking to explore the delights of the North East.

Park up in your private off-road parking space and follow the pathway alongside the lovely dwelling, stepping over the threshold and into a charming sitting room, beautifully-appointed with rustic character, decorated with exposed wooden beams and a warming gas fire, enticing you to put your feet up and unwind with a cup of tea after an action-packed day.

After working up an appetite, venture through to the delightful farmhouse-style kitchen, amply-equipped with all of the necessary amenities required to rustle up a heart-warming meal for the group, and gather your loved ones in the dining room to serve your culinary delights, indulging over a bottle of wine.

End the day in style with a leisurely seat in the enclosed courtyard, boasting an array of fabulous colourful plants, providing a solace escape from the bustle of the nearby city.

As the day draws to a close, head back indoor and prepare for bed with a luxurious soak amongst the bubbles in the family bathroom, positioned on the ground-floor for your convenience.

Climb the stairs to the first-floor where you'll find three thoughtfully laid out bedrooms, a double, benefiting from it's own en-suite walk-in shower, alongside a further double and an intimate single bedroom, all featuring a neutral décor, offering a calming setting to rest your eyes ahead of a new day.

Get better acquainted with your surroundings and venture off on foot into the heart of Durham, where you'll be spoilt for choice with the selection of high-street and boutique shops that line the cobbled streets, perfect for picking up a keepsake to remind you of your marvellous holiday!

If you fancy a break from doing the cooking, visit one of the many eateries on offer, with traditional country pubs, quaint cafes and delicious restaurants, there's something to suit a variety of tastes, as well as a bustling nightlife, promising a thrilling night on the town.

The seaside town of Seaham is within easy reach, home to a tranquil beach decorated in a mixture of pebble and sand, perfect for basking in the sun or tackling the waves, or if you'd prefer to stay on land, take a leisurely stroll along the harbour and soak in the scenic views of Seaham Lighthouse, towering above sea level, finishing the day in typical seaside tradition with a portion of fish and chips on the front.

Venture further afield to the vibrant city of Newcastle upon Tyne, stopping for an obligatory photo with The Angel of The North en route, and discover the quirky Gateshead Millennium Bridge with a walk along the banks of the River Tyne, or if you time it right, you might be able to catch the magpies as they play at St James' Park.

Discover the hidden gem that is the North East with a stay at 14 Lowes Barn Bank.
