Spacious accommodation ideally situated for touring area
Lovely spacious cottage ideally situated for touring area. Set in a pleasant village location there is a small convenience store, 2 pubs and a couple of restaurants. Cottage is about 20 minutes from Durham. Beamish, Newcastle and the Northumberland coast are reachable within an hour or less. The cottage could benefit from the availability of Wifi as it's currently not available (which was a problem for our 2 teenage kids!) and the TV reception would be greatly improved if the indoor aerial was ditched and a proper outside aerial installed. Having said that we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this cottage to anyone who wanted to visit the area.

A fabulous cottage in a great location. The cottage is well furnished with super style to reflect the area. The overall space in this cottage is remarkable and families can all find their own space within it. The cottage is great value for money.
Mr Samuels

A cosy yet spacious property in a good situation with helpful owners.

I have stayed in several cottages over the past four years and Prospect Cottage ranks as one of the best. The layout allows for excellent flexibility with its two bathrooms and separate bedroom in the old hay loft. It provides a perfect location to explore County Durham.
Mr Mortimer

We were impressed with Prospect Cottage. It was clean, well equipped and very welcoming. It was a bonus having such nice owners living next door (loved their little Jack Russell!). Lots of shops in the village including a 'Spar' and there are excellent restaurants just a two minute walk away. The cottage is well situated; Durham is just a few miles away, Cathedral and Castle are a 'must.' We used the Park and Ride to Durham Railway Station and got on a train into York. 'Beamish' is well worth a visit for folk of any age, the entrance ticket gives you a whole year unlimited access, great value.
