  • "The cottage was spotless and very well equipped and Lisa the owner was very pleasant and helpful and had supplied a lot of extras, pity the kitchen/lounge did not have a main window which meant lights were needed all the time."

    There were no amenities nearby so a car was essential.

Copley Bent Cottages

Three beautiful barn conversions on a working farm and set next to the owner’s home in the little Durham village of Butterknowle. Converted with great attention to detail, these single-storey cottages have been lovingly finished to provide the perfect destination for those seeking a countryside break with a luxurious touch. Each has an open plan living area offering a sleek fitted kitchen, dining area and sitting area with multi-fuel stove for chilly evenings, all set beneath a pitched roof exposing original beams to combine character features with an elegant design. Outside is a pretty shared patio to the side with furniture, barbecue and a relaxing water feature. Why not settle here with a glass of wine after a busy day and enjoy the simple charms of the surrounding countryside, watching over the owner's distinctive Belted Galloway cattle in the adjacent field? There’s plenty to see and do in the surrounding area, including nearby Hamsterley Forest with its tall pines, classic woodland walks and challenging cycle routes. Raby Castle is also a must visit, along with the stunning waterfalls at High Force and Cauldron Snout. The market town of Barnard Castle, with its charming cobbled streets and impressive Bowes Museum is nearby, plus a short drive brings you into the heart of Durham, with its majestic cathedral. Booked together with friends and family, or individually as a romantic, rural retreat, these two superb cottages are sure to delight.

Set between the pretty market towns of Bishop Auckland and Barnard Castle is the sleepy little village of Butterknowle, near to Hamsterley Forest. Head West to spend the day in Barnard Castle, set on the site of a Roman fort, where the medieval castle ruins still tower over the River Tees. The town boasts quaint cobbled streets, yards and back lanes, which were first laid out in the 12th century, along with rows of attractive, old stone houses. The town centre hosts an arts complex should you be in search of a bit of culture, whilst there’s a range of independent shops to peruse, where you’re certain to find the perfect holiday keepsake. A short drive eastward from Butterknowle brings you to bustling town of Bishop Auckland, elevated above the River Wear and known as the Gateway to Weardale.On the outskirts of the town you can wander the ancient stones of the Binchester Roman Fort, the largest in the county. Beautiful walking country is right on the doorstep of this village, with the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty just a few miles away, whilst an array of interesting towns and a wealth of historic attractions can all be found within an easy drive.
