Consett 5.2 miles.

Horsley Cottage is a beautiful stone-built abode resting in the heart of the countryside of County Durham, making it an extremely desirable base for couples, friends or families of four in pursuit of a tranquil retreat.

All on the ground floor, this contemporary cottage caters to a variety of group needs, providing an overall memorable experience for each and every guest.

Enter the porch and kick off your boots before venturing into the delightful and homely sitting room where an impressive woodburning stove takes centre stage beneath the rustic beams, framing the room, a lovely spot to end each evening.

Make your way into the kitchen/diner where you can enjoy all of your mealtimes, with plenty of space for the chef of the group to prepare a tasty treat with the assistance of the wonderful appliances at hand, while the rest of the group gather around the table and toast to a wonderful holiday to come.

Discover two elegant king sized bedrooms to end your day in, both boasting their own televisions so you can watch your favourite shows from the comfort of the covers, while one bedroom also benefits from its own en-suite shower room, with the family bathroom being of equal delight.

Wake up in your bright and airy bedrooms, selecting your personal belongings from the ample storage space, and make your way outside to discover the beauty of your surroundings; encompassed by miles of uninterrupted countryside, there's no better spot to enjoy your morning coffee, with your private hot tub providing the perfect way to soak in the splendour each evening.

The village of Waskerley is a truly tranquil base for a holiday, sitting within the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it boasts wonderful walking routes and charm all around, with the Smiddy Shaw Reservoir making a lovely afternoon ramble, while the Waskerley Way Railway makes a wonderful cycling route, with sheep farms, heather moorland and much more to explore.

Head to Consett for all of your local amenities, where you can find a good selection of shops and eateries to explore, with some of the pubs being named after the rich mining history of the town, there's plenty to explore here, not forgetting the wonder of the Empire Theatre, one of County Durham's oldest theatres!

Durham is well-worth exploring for its Romanesque Durham Cathedral and Norman Durham Castle, with gardens and a maze to meander through at Crook Hall too, or take a trip to Newcastle-upon-Tyne to discover its wonderful shopping experiences, vibrant nightlife and even its very own beach!

Surrounded by excitement for every taste, Horsley Cottage is the perfect choice for your escape to County Durham.
