Ideal touring base
This lovely detached holiday home is ideally located to discover Durham, Northumberland and the Dales, offering tranquil countryside and city life, with an abundance of wildlife and rare birds such as a pair of red kites. Offering tasteful, contemporary living accommodation, just 2 minutes by car from Beamish Museum and Tanfield Steam Engine Railway. Beamish Museum, the open-air ’Living Museum of the North’ which recreates life in the North East over various points in history, including a working coal mine, village, farm and tram system, makes a great day out. The Beamish Valley is one of the most important archaeological landscapes in England. A picturesque river setting, it boasts country inns and gastro pubs serving home cooked food. Beamish has easy access to the A1, which will take you further north to Alnwick and the Heritage Coast, where a day can be spent exploring the many historic castles and friendly villages set amongst unspoilt golden sandy beaches. Not too far away is the Metro Centre - one of the largest shopping centres in Europe with an abundance of shops and eateries. For cricket fans, Durham County Cricket Club’s ground, ’The Riverside’, is a short drive away at Chester-le-Street. The cottage is in an ideal location for exploring all the north eastern counties, while the city of Durham with its lovely cathedral and river walks should not be missed.
