Outside is off road parking for three cars and a lawned garden with furniture. Situated in the heart of the beautiful countryside of County Durham, Laurel Cottage is a comfortable family cottage from which to explore this lovely part of the country.


Very disappointed, on arrival the cottage was still being cleaned and we had to sit in the car for 25mins, it should have been ready at 4pm but wasn?t. The cottage is very clean, well equipped and comfortable, but sadly the barking dogs from the breeders next door that were kept in the field at the back of the cottage over shadowed everything. They barked morning noon and night. On two occasions we got up to no heating and no hot water, we rang the number for help on the first occasion and a gentleman came round to sort it out, on the second occasion we ended the holiday early and came home.

Absolutely excellent cottage
We had a fastastic holiday with our little jack russell in May at lovely 'Laurel Cottage'. The cottage is beautifully clean, nicely furnished and well equipped.We can highly recommend this cottage. It is in a good location to enjoy site seeing. We made our trip to visit our relatives who also enjoyed sitting in the lovely conservatory. We had all home comforts, in this spacious cottage, having a utility area with a washing machine and tumble dryer, the owner has thought of everything, even to the smallest detail. The beds are very comfortable with lovely bedding and gorgeous soft fluffy towels. This cottage how it is presented is a credit to the owner. We will be booking again next year.

Cottage stay
Our first stay in Durham and we found the cottage was well equipped, clean and functional and of a high standard.Unfortunately parking and noise were a bit of a problem as driveway on a sharp slope and limited parking in front of property. Noise from main road made sleeping difficult and barking dogs at the back were a bit of a nuisance.

Lovely clean, well equipped cottage.
Just had a fantastic week in Laurel Cottage. Location perfect for walking and ideally placed for visiting loads of places. The cottage was beautifully clean on arrival and was well equipped. We wanted for nothing. We highly recommend this cottage.

Loved the fact it felt like home from home, everything there that you needed. Lovely to sit in the conservatory hardly used the lounge except when it was too hot to sit in the conservatory. Hopefully we will return as found it very comfortable and in a good location.
