About the location
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.
Note: Maximum occupancy - four adults and two children under the age of 12.
