    > Situated in the picturesque Durham Dales, on the cusp of the Weardale Valley and with the river running right at the back of the glorious garden, Kingfisher Cottage is the most idyllic location for guests wishing to explore the area. Nestled in a row of cottages with rear views across the river, open countryside and fields, there is no better place from which to enjoy all of the magnificent scenery that this area has to offer. The property has a rear garden, which is a great space in which to sit and watch the local kingfisher fly by, and also to enjoy the peaceful sounds of the birds and river running by. Perfect for walkers, guests will find many established public footpaths that lead directly along the river and through hills and dales of County Durham and Weardale Valley and pass through nearby villages and beyond. Cyclists, ramblers and leisurely walkers will find many walks and cycle paths for guests of all abilities and all ages that will take guests on towards the nearby villages and towns, including Wackerfield, 4 miles, Barnard Castle, 10 miles, and Piercebridge, 11 miles. The closest pub is a mere 10-minute walk away, and there is also a fish and chip shop in the nearby village of Cockfield, which lies just 2 miles away.
    Ideal for families, couples or groups of friends, Kingfisher Cottage really does boast the perfect location for exploring the local area. With many attractions, there is an abundance of opportunities for a day out. Hamsterley Forest is only 5 miles away and is a delightful 2000-hectare site of popular walking trails, including the Gruffalo Trail, cycle trails and orienteering, as well as plenty of spots for the perfect picnic. The thriving market town of Barnard Castle is often popular with visitors and hosts a weekly farmers market, local pubs, restaurants and shops. Raby Castle can also be reached within a short drive and is a must see for visitors who wish to catch a glimpse of over 200 deer which wander the grounds and are so comfortable in their natural habitat. The village of Staindrop is only 4 miles away and lies just next to Raby Castle. Staindrop is set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and offers tea shops, cafés and a local family butcher, and lies close to the nature reserve of Low Barns and Auckland Castle. Also perfect for guests wanting to visit the cathedral city of Durham, as Kingfisher Cottage is only a 30-minute drive away. Popular tourist attractions in Durham include the Lumiere Festival, jazz festival, book week, arts week, the theatre, castle and cathedral, as well as many designer boutiques and shops. Shop 1/2 mile, pub 250 yards, restaurant 3 miles.

    We really enjoyed our stay. Listening to the river whilst in bed and outside was so tranquil. Endless walks from the house & nice meal in the pub at Hamsterley.

    We had a really lovely family holiday at Kingfisher cottage. The cottage is really spacious and very well equipped. The location is beautiful. The small gestures such as chocolates and wine on arrival made the holiday even more special. We would definitely consider staying again and would highly recommended Kingfisher cottage.

    Lovely little cottage in a lovely location. Really enjoyed the walk along the river from the door step with the kids and the dog. Didn't see the Kingfisher but we did see a Dipper for those of you in to your wild life. The river is very shallow but there a few little pools past the treatment plant where you can see some small fish if you look hard enough and know what to look for. We drove in to Cockfield ( under 5 min drive) for a nice Chinese takeaway on the Sat evening. Had trouble finding somewhere to buy logs for the fire as the Co op in Cockfield doesn't sell them so might be worth taking a few with you if you enjoy a nice log burning fire or I'm sure if you contact the owners before you arrive and ask them to leave some that you can purchase they will. They do kindly leave enough for the 1st night and also provide a welcome pack including a bottle of wine which was a lovely gesture. We had a great weekend in this lovely place but next time would probably stay somewhere within walking distance to a pub that does food.
