A beautiful 17th Century Grade II listed character holiday cottage centrally placed for visiting the historic City of Durham with its famous castle and cathedral (world heritage sites), the attractive market town of Barnard Castle and Teesdale. Northumberland, Hadrian's Wall and the beautiful North East coastline with its lovely sandy beaches are also within easy driving distance.
Innkeepers Cottage sleeps two guests and is a romantic retreat located in the heart of the Northern Dales - perfect for walking, bird watching or simply relaxing amongst beautiful countryside. It has a sumptuously comfy kingsize bed and lovely log burning stove to relax by after a long country walk.
The historic little village of Frosterley is ideally placed in a peaceful conservation area, surrounded by glorious rolling countryside which provides plenty of lovely walks and spectacular waterfalls. Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), the village sits alongside the River Wear, and offers a choice of two village pubs where you can enjoy a meal out. The Black Bull in particular, is fabulous with it's open fires, rustic charm, and excellent home cooked food and best of all, it is only five minutes walk away from the cottage.
For those who want to explore a little further afield, hop on the steam train from Frosterley station and take a nostalgic journey to Wolsingham and Stanhope.
