No smoking.\n Traditional cosy and welcoming Cracket Cottage is the perfect for guests wanting to enjoy a peaceful break in the Durham Dales. The small front garden leads directly into the comfortable living room it’s open fire and oil-filled radiators are perfect for warming the whole house on a winter’s evening. The kitchen is compact and practical combining modern storage units with traditional cupboards and pantry. The steep cottage stairs lead up to the first floor where guests will find a family bathroom and the double bedroom. A second staircase leads up to the very well-presented twin bedroom with super views. To the rear of the cottage is a small enclosed garden with a sitting-out area. There are views across the fields to the village church and the fells beyond occasionally deer and rabbits stop to peer into the garden. It is perfect for guests who enjoy walking or cycling with numerous footpaths that lead through the village along the river and out into the fabulous countryside of Weardale which has been recognized as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village pub is 50 yards away and has a restaurant and micro brewery. Local shops including a Post Office two cafés and two pubs are 1 mile away.\nOnly 5 miles away from the popular town of Stanhope guests will be able to visit the excellent Durham Dales Visitor Centre where there is a variety of independent shops tourist information and a tea room. A couple of minutes further into Stanhope is a high street that is thriving with local businesses shops eateries and pubs as well as the open air heated swimming pool for those brave enough to give it a try. The Weardale Railway has a stop in Stanhope and is a great way of seeing the landscape and beauty of the area. Over the winter period this train turns in to the Christmas train and is a must-see for guests with families. A little further afield but still within easy driving distance guests will be able to visit the Lead Mining Museum in Killhope Hamsterley Forest with its great cycle trails and fabulous walks skiing in Westgate and the majestic sight of High Force waterfall.\nThe cathedral city of Durham is just 45 minutes’ drive east and the bustling city of Newcastle is 45 minutes to the north as is Gateshead which is the location of the Metrocentre and makes for a super trip out on a chilly day. Nestled in a small row of traditional stone terraced houses in a peaceful and tranquil location Cracket Cottage is an inviting place to stay and is a great destination for enjoying some time away.

    Great will certainly go back



    out of 10

    The cottage was well equipped. It was cold however, but if you kept the coal fire well alight the radiators would just about get hot. The garden could have done with a bit of a makeover although it was nice to watch the rabbits and chickens over the low wall. We were concerned that all the electrics (heaters, electric blankets and lamps) were all being run on extension sockets. We also couldn't find any PAT stickers on any of the electrical equipment.



    out of 10

    Charming cottage, full of character and a beautiful location.
