Just show me Durham Cottages

Stunning countryside, a gorgeous historic city and a wealth of visitor attractions all contribute to the timeless appeal of County Durham.

First stop, the city of Durham oozing charm and offering lots to see and do. From its splendid Romanesque cathedral and castle (a World Heritage Site), to its tiny, cobbled streets crammed with delightful galleries, boutiques and eateries, there's not much this city doesn't have. Enjoy a boat trip along the river, explore the romantic gardens of Crook Hall, or visit the renowned Durham University.

Head out of town to the emerald valleys of the Durham Dales, the rugged cliffs of the Heritage Coast, or the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where velvet moors unfurl to quintessential stone-built villages.

Get to grips with Durham on your next self-catering getaway

Such landscapes beg to be explored and walkers will delight with the choice of public footpaths, including the fabled Pennine Way. There are great opportunities for cyclists too, with long distance routes weaving through the region, plus adrenalin-pumping off-road thrills at Hamsterley Forest.

During your County Durham cottage holiday, do something different and try 4x4 driving, quad biking or archery. Have fun on the water fishing, sailing and water-skiing. Most golf clubs welcome visitors and courses range from 27-hole championship to demanding seaside links.

There are award-winning museums such as the open-air Beamish Museum and the grand château-style Bowes Museum, historic jewels like Raby Castle and Gibside country escape, along with family attractions including adventure farm parks, Diggerland, NRM Shildon and Hardwick Park.

So next time you're planning a holiday, consider a County Durham cottage - you won't be disappointed!
