Located in the heart of the countryside this property offers the perfect solution to the busy couple looking to get away from it all in a romantic haven. The garden gate leads onto the actual Derwent Walk which was the old railway line, now used by runners, walkers and cyclists. There is a Red Kite Trail and many rare species of bird visit the garden, with an abundance of other wildlife in the surrounding countryside. It is the perfect area for walkers. Locally you can visit Beamish Museum or take a drive to the North Pennines Area of Natural Beauty where you can enjoy a stroll around Derwent Reservoir. Alternatively, the Gibside National Trust Park is just a 5-minute drive from the cottage (or within walking/cycling distance if you prefer) and often hosts different events in the evening, so be sure to check it out! After a busy day exploring, return to the cottage and relax in the hot tub with your favourite tipple!
