  • “Had not visited this part of the country before.”

    Very pleasantly surprised at how lovely it was; enjoyed some country walks and explored places like Barnard Castle and Seaham. Wolsingham is a great location, short drive to lots of places of interest. Pleasant village with some facilities like a bakery and a coffee shop. Italian restaurant a few steps from Mill Cottage.

    Very pleasantly surprised at how lovely it was; enjoyed some country walks and explored places like Barnard Castle and Seaham. Wolsingham is a great location, short drive to lots of places of interest. Pleasant village with some facilities like a bakery and a coffee shop. Italian restaurant a few steps from Mill Cottage. The cottage is spick and span, fully re-furbished not long ago. Every possible facility and the owner (who lives just over the road) has thought of everything. One word of warning: this is an old building so some of the doors are low and the upstairs bathroom has a very low ceiling. Highly recommended.

About the property

This is a delightful mid-terrace cottage in the pretty village of Wolsingham.

A lovely cottage which is centrally located and ideal for a romantic break exploring this interesting part of the country.

Stepping through the front door, there is a sitting room with a dining area and two comfy sofas which are set around a cosy woodburner, where you can relax if the weather becomes a little cold.

A door leads through to the well-equipped kitchen and there is a beautiful shower room for added flexibility.

Upstairs there is a double bedroom with views of the hills and a second smaller bedroom which contains two single beds, one of which is suitable for a child as it has limited head height.

There is also a family bathroom which completes all the accommodation.

Outside this cosy cottage there is a private enclosed courtyard with furniture where you can relax with a morning coffee or dine alfresco if the mood takes you.

Just a short stroll from the cottage, which is in the west end of Wolsingham, is the River Wear and the park which makes this a prime location with many walks in the area.

There is a wide variety of pubs, shops, restaurants and takeaways.

A short drive away there are many exciting places to visit from this cottage including Hamsterley Forest, Auckland Castle, Kynren, Killhope Lead Mining Museum and of course a trip on the Weardale railway is a must.

To the north of the cottage is the city of Durham and for a day trip, why not drive along the Northumberland coast, and visit Middleton-in-Teesdale and the North Yorkshire Moors.

Wherever you choose to visit, this cottage is in an ideal central location.
