    “Spacious comfortable cottage in a great location for exploring the area.”

    Quiet and private with great facilities and good off road parking.

    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.

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.

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

LANCHESTER

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.
