About Woodland House Cottage

Woodland House Cottage sleeps four guests and is a comfy stone holiday cottage that adjoins the owners property and enjoys wonderful panoramic views across beautiful open countryside spanning from the North Yorkshire Moors right across to the Pennines.

The cottage is located in the attractive rural village of Woodland in Durham which sits in an elevated position high up on the lower Teesdale valley slopes, on the very edge of the beautiful North Pennines AONB. The village has a pub, post-office and well-stocked shop within walking distance of the cottage and is just seven miles from Barnard Castle, a bustling historic market town, named after the castle it was built around, sitting on the River Tees.

Woodland provides an ideal base from which to explore the areas many attractions, along with enjoying the excellent opportunities for outdoor pursuits including superb walking amongst the stunning North Pennine landscape. Nearby Hamsterley Forest is just a mile from the cottage and provides endless opportunities for walkers, bird watchers and cyclists amongst its 5000 acres of forest with miles of footpaths and a purpose built mountain bike track.

Nestling between Northumberland's stunning National Park and the picturesque Yorkshire Dales, the magical Durham Dales of Teesdale and Weardale afford a spectacular landscape with some of England's most beautiful scenery. Here you will find a diverse and interesting blend of rugged upland, gentle river valleys, impressive waterfalls, wildflower meadows and drystone walls. Less well known than other regions this area is surprisingly uncrowded and unspoilt at any time of the year.

Woodland is also the perfect location to use as a touring base with Durham City with it's magnificent cathedral and castle, The Northumberland National Park, Hadrians wall, The Yorkshire Dales National Park, The Northumberland Coast, The Lake District and The North Yorkshire Moors and Coast all within easy reach.
