The property

Nestled in the old mining village of Coundon, in County Durham, is this delightful newly refurbished first-floor apartment, Westerton View.

Set on a residential street, this traditionally styled abode opens its doors to families and couples eager to break away from normality and enjoy this wonderful part of England.

Stepping through the front door, there is a small sunroom where you can enjoy a quiet read on a sunny day, before heading upstairs to access the main part of the flat.

The living/dining room offers a charming spot to relax after a day of walking, sinking into the sofa and flicking through the Smart TV in search of a good movie.

Move through to the kitchen, amply appointed with a range of appliances to assist throughout your stay, including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge and even a washing machine, so you can put your muddy clothes on a spin.

The bedrooms at this Coundon apartment include a super-king-size with zip/link beds, offering flexibility as a twin on request, and a double, while there is also a bathroom and a downstairs cloakroom.

To the outside is a small, enclosed courtyard where you can sit out and relax upon on evening, however this is a shared space.

The village of Coundon, although small in size, offers a great selection of amenities with a Sainsbury’s supermarket, three pubs and a selection of takeaways, which is perfect for when you want a night off cooking.

The nearby town of Bishop Auckland boasts a thriving arts and cultural scene with a cinema, theatre and arts complex, whilst on the edge of the town you can discover the largest Roman Fort in the county at Binchester.

The city of Durham is just 10 miles away, where you can enjoy a wealth of shops, pubs and restaurants, along with attractions such as the beautiful cathedral and castle, it’s a great day out.

Take yourself further afield and experience the delightful Durham Dales, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Hadrian’s Wall, the Heritage Coast, Cragside at Rothbury and the North York Moors; there’s something for everyone.

About the location


Bishop Auckland 3 miles; Durham 10 miles; Barnard Castle 16 miles.

The County Durham village of Coundon is situated in one of the most beautiful counties of England, with a mining history which dates back to 1350. A short drive to the east brings you to bustling town of Bishop Auckland, elevated above the River Wear and known as the Gateway to Weardale. 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. On the outskirts of the town you can wander the ancient stones of the Binchester Roman Fort, the largest in the county or perhaps experience a magnificent evening of North East storytelling at Kynren, a seven acre stage with pyrotechnics, stunning lighting and water effects all part of the mix. A little further afield there are the delights of Barnard Castle with its cobbled streets and medieval castle towering over the River Tees, head north to Durham City home to the magnificent Cathedral, with its breathtaking vaulted ceiling and splendid architecture. The cathedral, the final resting place of the Venerable Bede, is one of the finest examples of Norman architecture in the whole of Europe. Durham Castle stands side by side with the cathedral, on a prominent hilltop site, encircled by the wooded slopes of the River Wear below. The city itself offers elegant buildings and fascinating narrow streets with excellent shopping, eating and drinking to suit all tastes. Beautiful walking country is within easy reach of this village, with the North Pennines 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.
