The Cottage is a homely ground-floor dwelling resting near Witton Castle, Bishop Auckland conveniently located for Kynren, a ten minute drive away. With luscious green surroundings and the River Wear within reaching distance, this humble abode is a great spot for couples seeking a romantic countryside retreat spent exploring the great outdoors.

Step inside the stone-fronted cottage and enjoy the tranquility and panoramic view.

Unwind with a book on the sofa and nestle together as you delight in your peaceful surroundings, or watch a riveting film on the TV.

Create a romantic meal together in the well-equipped kitchen or choose to sample one of the many restaurants in the surrounding area.

Then enjoy a good night’s sleep in the spacious king bed.

Start your day outdoors with breakfast alfresco on the patio while watching the abundant bird life.

A three minute walk will let you pick up the Northern Saints Trails path towards historic Escomb village or stop off at Low Barns Nature Reserve for a walk alongside the three pretty lakes.

Once ready to leave the comfort of the accommodation head for Bishop Auckland to explore Auckland Castle and Deer House before grabbing a bite to eat at one of the local cafés.

Venture into the nearby city of Durham and wander through the iconic cathedral and botanical gardens where you can admire the beautiful flowers and trees that grow on the grounds.

About the location


Durham 11 miles;

Bishop Auckland is a busy market town, 11 miles to the south of Durham and is home to the Gothic palace of Auckland Castle and deer park, a 900 year old medieval hunting lodge and grounds, once home to the Prince Bishop’s of England. Bishop Auckland offers a thriving arts and cultural scene with a cinema, theatre and arts complex. There are plenty of places to eat and drink in the town centre and an abundance of shops to peruse. On the outskirts of the town you can discover the secrets of the largest Roman Fort in the county at Binchester or perhaps book a night at Kynren, a spectacular night show depicting the history of England, seen through the eyes of Arthur, a 10 year old boy from the North East, (opening July 2016) and marvel at the pyrotechnics, stunning lighting and water effects.The city of Durham is just a short drive north with an array of shops, pubs and restaurants, and a little further will take you to the Roman town of Chester-le-Street or Beamish Museum. A little further afield you can discover the Durham Dales, Newcastle upon Tyne, Hadrian's Wall, the Heritage Coast, Cragside at Rothbury and the North York Moors; there’s something for everyone.
