This is the perfect location for exploring County Durham with so much to see and do including market towns, museums and Hadrian’s Wall.
Ideally located right by the side of Grassholme reservoir, West Pasture Cottage occupies a beautiful position. Perfect for guests of all ages, the semi-detached cottage, adjacent to the owner’s home, is all on one level and is spacious and comfortable throughout. The living room and dining area are cosy and well-furnished and have views looking out right across to the reservoir. The kitchen too, has the perfect view across the water which is the perfect distraction when preparing a meal. The bathroom offers a bath with a shower over. There is a very well presented double bedroom and an equally well furnished twin bedroom, making this the ideal holiday home for couples, small families or guests who like to holiday with friends. With a sitting out area at the front of the cottage and ample space for parking, guests may find themselves reluctant to leave, however there are plenty of locations to visit and explore within an easy 30-minute drive.
There are two pubs, one of which serves food, situated in the pretty village of Mickleton, just over a mile and a half away. The popular village of Middleton-in-Teesdale lies just 3 miles away and offers a great variety of pubs, restaurants, shops and cafés. West Pasture Cottage is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty stretching for miles across the Durham Dales and beyond, and is the perfect location for walkers and cyclists. With numerous established walking routes, cycle routes and public footpaths leading directly from the cottage, guests will be able to enjoy a leisurely stroll around the water, or a more challenging trek across the open countryside and natural woodland that surround the cottage. Great places to walk to include Gibsons Cave, Cauldron Snout and Cronkley Scar.
The historic market town of Barnard Castle is just a 12 mile drive away and the Bowes Museum is a must visit. Smaller towns and villages are dotted across the area and these include Stanhope which hosts The Durham Dales Centre where guests will find everything they need to know about the area, and also a heated open air swimming pool. Killhope with its Lead Mining Museum and mining history is also a great place to visit for a day trip as well as Hamsterley Forest, St John’s Chapel, Bishop Auckland and the cathedral city of Durham. For guests wanting to travel a little further afield, to the north is the county of Northumberland which can be reached within an hour’s drive. Hexham, Corbridge and Hadrian’s Wall are all easily accessible. To the west, the county of Cumbria for The Lake District is also just over an hour. Shop 3 miles, pubs and restaurant 1½ miles.
