Durham, County Durham, England
Standing alone in a beautiful sheltered location, surrounded by pine trees, this cottage offers peace and tranquillity for a relaxing break away from the stress of modern life. This region is part of the North Pennines, known as England's Last Wilderness. It is a paradise for walkers and mountain bikers with numerous paths and trails to delight all abilities.

Well, reviews are always written as "in the eye of the beholder" but this accomodation does live up to its description and beyond. A cosy house with ample room for 5 indeed. Well situated within the reach of walks, from the house to the nearby village, as well as the beautifull moors. The accomodation was very clean and tidy upon...

About the neighborhood
Set beside the river in a wooded section of the upper Derwent valley, Blanchland is one of most attractive small villages in the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Lying beneath magnificent fells, it is a conservation village built of stone from the remains of the 12th century Abbey. There is a special atmosphere and the village is steeped in history. It flourished during the 19th century lead mining bonanza and industrial archaeology abounds nearby.

The village has many listed buildings clustering around the remains of the Abbey Church. Blanchland is the centrepiece of an estate owned by a charitable trust, The Lord Crewe Charity. There is ample car parking with an honesty box, all proceeds used to support charitable activities in the village.
