Accommodation description

Nestled away in the quiet and peaceful village of Middlestone, one of a pair and adjacent to the owner’s home, Laburnum Cottage really is a hidden gem. The absolute perfect location for guests wanting to enjoy a luxurious romantic break, the cottage has been renovated to the highest of standards. With far-reaching views across open countryside and right out towards the North York Moors in the distance, guests will find themselves mesmerised by the splendour of the local scenery. Perfect for walkers, ramblers and cyclists, as well as those just wanting to enjoy a well-earned rest, Laburnum Cottage is perfectly placed for exploring and getting to know the area. Middlestone village is a sought after spot with a great local pub that serves excellent food and drink, so for those guests who want to really treat themselves then they can just walk directly across the road to the Inn, which was listed as a ‘Durham CAMRA Rural Pub of the year’ in 2014. For those guests who enjoy travelling a little further afield, there are many established walks, public footpaths, cycle paths and bridleways that travel through the area and beyond, through nearby villages and towns such as Coundon, Spennymoor and Kirk Merrington. The popular cathedral city of Durham is only an 8½-mile drive away and offers guests year-round attractions. Durham is one of the most historic cities in England and offers guests a plethora of attractions to visit and explore. The famous Durham Cathedral and Castle are historic buildings and definitely worth a visit. There is also the Gala Theatre located in the centre of the city, making this the perfect spot for guests wanting to enjoy a theatre trip as part of their break. Packed with top-quality restaurants, bistros, cafés and bars, Durham is a thriving city. Guests have the opportunity to enjoy the annual Lumiere Festival, annual book week, jazz festival, arts festival, miners gala and many more free attractions, as well as the weekly farmer’s market and pavement artists that line the streets and market place. Should guests wish to enjoy a little retail therapy, then they will find some beautiful boutiques along with many high street names and designers. Barnard Castle is another popular town that lies only 17 miles away and offers guests quaint tea shops to visit, as well as many small cafés and restaurants for those couples who enjoy eating out. A little further afield, but still within easy driving distance, guests will be able to enjoy a day trip to the magnificent Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors, the Northumberland Dales and Hadrian’s Wall, or visit one of the many smaller villages in County Durham and the Durham Dales. There is also the opportunity to visit the Angel of the North statue or shop till you drop at the Metrocentre, both only a 35-minute drive away. Shop 1 mile, pub and restaurant 20 yards.
