Accuracy of the listing

  • "Spacious comfortable cottage in a great location for exploring the area."

    Quiet and private with great facilities and good off road parking. The listing would benefit from more interior pictures, to show how spacious and attractive the property is. The external picture is a few years old, and the trees have seriously grown, but the garden is still nice. We had a lovely time and wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again.

  • "This cottage is truly wonderful, indeed more mansion than cottage."

    Comfortable and well appointed with everything you need and looking forward to booking this cottage again. Lanchester is a lovely village and a great location for visiting Durham and the region.

  • "Both my husband and myself felt that the location of the property was absolutely perfect for a holiday in County Durham."

    We had a very busy week, sightseeing, walking, visiting National Trust properties, plus the 'eateries' in Lanchester were very nice. We hope to return.

    The cottage was freezing cold the TV areal failed to work at times and the photo of the cottage was a very old one as the conifer trees in the garden were huge making it very dark inside the owners of the property were very helpful

    The kings Head pub had a good choice of food .Great location for visiting other places. Beamish Museum well worth a visit. Park and ride ideal for Duhram. Overall a lovely break.

  • "Comfortable spacious cottage ideally placed for sightseeing."

    Could be even better if Wifi was available and the TV reception would be greatly improved if connected to a proper aerial rather than the inside one as at present.

    Local pubs, restaurants, very pleasant people. Cottage also located perfectly, nice and quiet. Very central for anywhere in the north east. My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

The property

A stone-built, terraced property adjoining the owner's home in the village of Lanchester, in the heart of lovely County Durham.

Prospect Cottage offers warm and comfortable accommodation from which to explore the surrounding area.

There is an attractive garden to the front, and an enclosed yard to the rear while inside the property has been well decorated and furnished to make a charmingly cosy base.

A visit to the historic city of Durham, just 9 miles away, is a must, and within easy driving distance are the Wear Valley, Wolsingham, Derwent Reservoir, Diggerland and the Roman Wall.

The Riverside Durham County Cricket Ground, which features International and Test matches, is less than 30 minutes' drive away, while further afield but worth the trip are the spectacular beaches and castles of the Northumberland Heritage Coastline.

About the location


Durham 8 miles; Newcastle 14 miles.

Set in the beautiful countryside of County Durham, approximately eight miles to the west of the historic City of Durham itself, is the village of Lanchester. The village took its name from the Roman fort of Longovicium situated half a mile south-west of Lanchester. Today, the Roman connection is reflected in the many Northumbrian tourist attractions along Hadrian’s Wall. Evidence of the Roman occupation in Lanchester is strong - stones from the original fort are incorporated into both local farm buildings and Lanchester’s attractive Church of All Saints, dating from Norman times. Now a thriving and substantial village, Lanchester has a good range of shops, pubs and restaurants. 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 just 8 miles away, and Newcastle just 14 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.
