We have three beautifully finished cottages in the heart of Lanchester. Cottage 3 has a good size, fully furnished kitchen, with patio doors into the garden. You will find a king size bedroom and we also have a double sofa bed. The lounge is incredibly comfortable, perfect to relax in after long walks! The views are breathtaking throughout the seasons. Making this the perfect year-round get away. The cottages offer a little haven of tranquillity but are close enough to the hustle and bustle of Newcastle (just 16 miles) and of course, the picturesque City of Durham, which is just 8 miles down the road. Perfect to make your trip extra special if you are visiting family at the university. You will be situated close to parks, restaurants (with fantastic dining!) And the region is oozing wit...We have three beautifully finished cottages in the heart of Lanchester. Cottage 3 has a good size, fully furnished kitchen, with patio doors into the garden.

It is perfect for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, families (with kids), big groups, and furry friends (pets).

Best private rental we’ve stayed at!
Ten stars. The cottage is lovely inside and out, extremely clean and well appointed. Comfy beds and pillows. Hosts are responsive and very helpful. The setting and views were great and the location was close to everything that is quintessential English country but close enough to the coast and Durham for day outings. I hope we get to come again!

Best cottage I have stayed in!!!!
What a beautiful comfortable cottage with every convenience available. Within walking distance to the local pub, The Old Mill & shortly after a really well stocked farm shop. Miles of open countryside with plenty of local places of unterest to see. Ideally located. Looks across lovely landscaped gardens to fields beyond, where the owners two horses were grazing. Would deffinately recommend to anyone visiting this lovely area. We will be back!

Absolutely perfect
We stayed here for a long weekend to celebrate our anniversary. It was exactly what we needed as we also had our 4 month old baby in tow. Lynn was fantastic with communication from the beginning, checking what we needed for the baby. She'd also left some essentials for us which was very much appreciated. The bungalow itself was perfect. Nice big bedroom and comfy bed. The bathroom was lovely and loads of towels, even though just for two of us. The patio and gardens are lovely and we were lucky enough for some sun to enjoy morning coffee outside. It was so peaceful and the view was lovely. It was exactly what we needed for our evenings in when the baby had gone to bed. We'd 100% stay again. Thank you

Not enough stars ...
Well what can we say!! From the moment we made our reservation to the point we (reluctantly) left, this was a five star experience from start to finish. The cottage itself was immaculate, stylishly furnished with everything you would need and more. The lovely welcome pack for us and the one for our dog were a lovely touch. Only a few minutes drive from Knitsley Form Shop .... tip: don’t bother with a food shop before or during, just visit there! Great products and restaurant are well worth visiting (lots)! We took advice from our hosts and spent the day at Derwent Reservoir and it was such a lovely day! Stunning views, excellent walks and a park and doggie field finished the afternoon off well. Local pub - The Punch Bowl - served great food and is doggie friendly. All in all I can’t rate this stay highly enough .... there are just not enough stars!

AMAZING!!
I wanted to write this review just now incase I forget when I get back to bonnie Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 We currently still at Cottage 2 and on our last night, we have been here since Friday afternoon. Since booking the cottage last minute on Thursday afternoon it has been an amazing and very pleasant experience! The booking was made through airbnb, where I was contacted straight away by Lynn (the owner) she was on hand to answer questions and was always very prompt. When we arrived the cottage was ready and waiting on for us the way it was mentioned, the accommodation is absolutely beautiful (the pictures don’t do it justice) there was a lovely welcome basket for us and there was even a doggy welcome pack for our pooch, although the cat ate the food due to the dogs strict diet! Yes you read that correctly we took that cat, the whole family went on a weekend break! We enjoyed waking up to the horses and feeding them some carrots the scenery is stunning! We are all packed and ready to pack the car in the morning. Thanks again Lynn, we will definitely be back here. Claire x

Perfect
Just returned from our stay at the old stables, and we're missing it already. On arriving we were met with an impeccably clean, beautifully presented, home from home, with a welcome pack including milk, crumpets, biscuits and other goodies. The views are simply stunning, set in remote countryside with pine woodlands in the distance, the neighbouring pennines and rolling hills, you can't help but feel relaxed as soon as you step outside into the gorgeous gardens. We couldn't have asked for more and it was perfect for our toddler too, who enjoyed exploring inside and out. We made the journey up North to visit friends in nearby Lanchester. We know where we'll be staying next time...and the next, and the next...
