The property

Cockfield 2.6 miles.

Ash is a charming, studio-style lodge nestled in Butterknowle near Cockfield, County Durham.

With the North Pennines, Yorkshire Dales and historic towns within reach, whisk your loved one away to Ash for a romantic escape in the countryside.

Off-road parking is available in Teesdale Cheesemakers café car park, where the owners will take you up to the property.

Resting on an elevated position, you'll be charmed by the beautifully finished wooden lodge looking out onto rolling hills and woodland.

Step inside and be welcomed by a lovely, open-plan living space; prepare a picnic in the kitchen area with a gas hob and fridge for easy meals, before heading out on one of the nearby walking trails to spot the local wildlife.

Sink into the armchairs after the day's adventures with a hot drink or a cold glass of wine to toast to your retreat, before climbing under the sheets for a well-earned rest.

With no WiFi and no TV, Ash offers the ultimate escape from the hustle and bustle; make the most of your peaceful surroundings at the front decking area with two seats to savour your morning coffee in the sunshine.

Guests reap the benefits of this fabulous location on Teesdale Cheesemakers, with breakfast provided in the café, cheese making courses and bee keeping talks on offer.

Butterknowle is home to two pubs for evening meals and crisp drinks after a long walk, whilst Cockfield is a short journey away for shops, a pub and a selection of takeaways.

For busier market towns, journey to Bishop Auckland with bustling highstreets lined with independent shops and eateries, where guests can stroll from the centre into the magnificent grounds of Auckland Castle with a picture-perfect deer park offering plenty of idyllic spots.

Plenty of attractions await in the vibrant city of Durham, including the impressive cathedral and castle with fascinating guided tours on offer, riverside walks to appreciate the historic architecture and an abundance of restaurants and bars to finish off the day.

With Ash as your base, venture into the North Pennines with rare wildlife and rugged beauty, or journey south into the scenic Yorkshire Dales with plenty of traditional villages to explore.

Make Ash your home-from-home to relish the peace and quiet with your loved one.
