Description

This stone built, detached barn conversion is set next to the owners' working livestock farm on the edge of the popular market town of Wolsingham near Durham. Surrounded by fields, this cottage is ideal for dog owners, walkers and cyclists with so many picturesque walks available right from the doorstep. As you step inside the cottage you will immediately appreciate the well-thought-out open plan ground floor with a well-equipped kitchen, dining area and sitting area. There is also a lovely double bedroom and bathroom on the first floor. You can relax outside on your own private patio, where you can dine alfresco whilst enjoying the tranquillity of the open countryside. A ten minute walk will take you to the centre of Wolsingham which has an array of pretty shops, restaurants and pubs. Nearby Hamsterley Forest has numerous walking and cycle paths where bikes and horses can be hired for the day. A short drive will take you to many local attractions including Raby Castle, Bowes Museum, High Force, Barnard Castle and Durham Cathedral. A little further afield will take you to the Lake District or the Northumberland Heritage Coastline, or you can simply enjoy the delights from your doorstep. This charming cottage is just the spot for a countryside break with the dogs.
The picturesque market town of Wolsingham sits at the entrance to Weardale, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty nestled within the North Pennines. Boasting many period features and stone-built listed buildings, the town is a popular stop-off point for visitors at the base of the Weardale Valley. The town boasts a number of well-regarded pubs, cafes and restaurants as well as convenience shops and takeaways. It also has the Wolsingham Agricultural Show, held every year on the first weekend in September.

‘We have just returned from a lovely stay at Drovers Cottage. Cottage was immaculate and very cosy. Owners left milk, cheese and fruit loaf which was a lovely gesture. The Bay Horse Pub was very welcoming and within walking distance. Chinese and Cafe 10 in market place were also v good. Plenty of walks in Wolsingham and High Force Waterfalls and Barnard Castle worth a visit too. Overall an extremely. enjoyable break’
