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 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.

    Best way to describe this holiday.. A lovely quaint cottage set in the beautiful Surroundings of the north Pennines. There are walks for miles and which ever way you go it’s absolutely amazing. The cottage has an open fire to cosy up to on an evening an original stone built cottage with plenty of features. We loved this holiday and our doggies had a great time too. Will be back soon.
