  • “The cottage was as described.”

    The only real drawback was the busy road it was on. There no noticeable noise disturbance but if you wanted to cross the road it could be difficult at times. The location was good and central for many places and the village itself up the slight hill opposite was very pretty.

The only other small issue was that there were several light bulbs not working when we were there.

Lovingly decorated and furnished throughout, this cottage is the perfect base for families and friends to explore this lovely part of the country.

This comfortable cottage is bright and welcoming, and has a well-equipped kitchen to cater for all your culinary needs, along with a dining area and a cosy sitting room with a gas fire, the perfect place to relax in after a day spent exploring this cultural region.

Three cosy bedrooms and a bathroom are on the first floor, and a bright and airy conservatory completes the accommodation.

There is a small garden to the rear, relax with a refreshing drink, and take in the fabulous panoramic views across the fields.

A five-minute drive will take you to the village of Lanchester, which boasts a marvellous selection of restaurants, takeaways and bistro pubs.

The city of Durham is only a short journey away, with its wonderful cathedral, cobbled streets, river walk and an array of shops, pubs and restaurants.

Also close by is the Roman town of Chester-le-Street, Beamish Museum and the Durham Dales.

A little further afield are Newcastle upon Tyne, Hadrian's Wall, the Heritage Coast, Cragside at Rothbury and the North Yorkshire Moors, all worth a visit and offering plenty of activities for everyone.

About the location

IVESTON

Lanchester 2.5 miles; Durham 10 miles;

Set in the beautiful countryside of County Durham, approximately ten miles to the west of the historic City of Durham, is the village of Iveston. The village took its name from Ive’s Stone- the stone on which St Ivo is said to have preached to Roman soldiers. Today, the Roman connection is reflected in the many Northumbrian tourist attractions along Hadrian’s Wall. Evidence of the Roman occupation in nearby villages is strong - stones from Roman forts are incorporated into both local farm buildings and nearby Lanchester’s attractive Church of All Saints, dating from Norman times. The surrounding countryside is superb for walking - the Lanchester Valley Walk runs the course of a disused railway line from Consett to Durham and is excellent for walkers or cyclists. With Durham City and Beamish Museum a short drive away, and Newcastle just 18 miles, there are many fantastic shopping opportunities within easy reach. An excellent base for Weardale and Teesdale, Cumbria and The Pennines, not to mention the historic Roman Wall Country together with the fabulous beaches and castles of the North Sea Coastline.
