This detached barn conversion is located on a working farm in Coxhoe near to Durham and sleeps eight people in four bedrooms.

The Shed is a stone and brick built detached barn conversion, set on a working beef and sheep farm on the edge of the village of Coxhoe just six 6 miles from Durham. Boasting four double bedrooms (three with ensuite facilities) and a family bathroom, this cottage can sleep eight people in style. The rest of the accommodation includes a fitted kitchen, a dining room with a snug and a sitting room.

Outside the cottage are a patio and garden with outdoor furniture, barbecue and hot tub as well as plenty of off road parking. Situated close to major roads, The Shed is an ideal base for discovering this fascinating part of the country.


Had everything you could need
We had a fantastic stay at The Shed with a large group of adults and two little ones. The property is enormous and still felt spacious when full to capacity. It is extremely well equipped with everything you could need, including a comfortable cot, high chair and some brilliant kids books. The hot tub was a nice bonus and worth paying a bit extra for. There is some traffic noise but we found we quickly got used to it. Would definitely recommend The Shed for big groups.

A Spectacular Country Cottage
My partner and I booked 'The Shed' for our friends over New Years Eve. As you enter the house it has a lovely big kitchen with a very spacious dinning area. The living room area is massive with large comfortable sofas, a big plasma television, DVDs, Wii, games and books. The bedrooms are lovely, ranging from different sizes. The master bedroom is incredible with an ensuite bathroom, lovely bathrooms in the house too. The pictures are quite deceiving in regards to where it is, as I was sure it would be in the countryside but its just off the main road which is very loud and you can hear from the rooms at night. Unfortunately the hot tub was unavailable at this time, even though it wasn't being used by anybody else and the price was a lot more expensive than a normal week. The downstairs shower could be replaced as its like a dripping tap. Overall, amazing house!

The cottage was really lovely, the photographs do not do it justice. A fantastic holiday. We would love to stay at The Shed again.

Centrally located property for exploring the local area. The property itself is beautifully presented and a real home from home. We would definitely go back and would highly recommend.
