Places to stay in West Auckland
The Regent's Chambers is a marvellous and comfortable place to stay, with super king beds, Netflix & Amazon Video, board games, self check-in and breakfast ingredients (except for milk!). There's a garden for relaxing in during nice weather (it happens!) and a real home-from-home feeling. There's free parking just outside the flat and it's a five minute walk into town (explore the castle and new gallery spaces), ten min to the station and ten min to Kynren. Durham is just a half hour away.
The kitchen is country style, with oak worktop and cream cabinets. It's fully stocked with basic necessities (tea selection, real coffee, olive oil, salt, pepper, spices and herbs). There is also bread, spreads and cereals on offer (though you need to bring milk). The bathroom has a separate shower and bath. Don't worry if you forget your shampoo, conditioner or shower gel as it's all provided for you. There are two big bedrooms with super king size beds and pillowtop mattresses, very soft 400 thread count sheets and feather pillows. The living room has a 49" Smart TV with freeview. You can watch Super HD Netflix, Amazon Video and BBC iPlayer too - the flat has its own Netflix and Amazon accounts so no need for a subscription. There's a large double sofabed (14cm full double memory foam mattress) and a single daybed (3000 pocket pillowtop mattress). Both beds are super comfy and have lots of pillows and cushions for maximum cosiness. There are double curtains in the bedrooms and living room, which all look out onto the street - the voile is to ensure privacy (but still lets in the light) plus lined blackout curtains on top. The flat is on the ground floor so it's more accessible for people with limited mobility, but note there are three shallow steps up to the front door so it's not suitable for wheelchairs. Parking is easy - there's lots available on Etherley Lane and though there are single yellow lines around the corners there are no other restrictions (except don't park in front of other people's houses as it annoys the neighbours!). It's best to park just outside the side gate on Etherley Lane, where you first check in. During Kynren days there is parking enforcement on the street but parking permits are provided in the flat for you to use. You can use smart check in to get into the flat with a code I give you at booking, so you can arrive whenever is convenient, even in the small hours of the morning. Have a lovely stay!
Known as the gateway to Weardale, Bishop Auckland is a bustling market town in the Vale of Durham, standing high above a meander in the River Wear with commanding views of the surrounding countryside. Walk fifteen minutes from the flat straight into the beautiful grounds of the magnificent Auckland Castle, the country residence of the Prince Bishops for more than 900 years. And don't miss the annual Bishop Auckland Food Festival which takes place in the castle grounds every April. It's AMAZING. Surrounding the Castle are the 800 acres of the Bishop's Deer Park - a great place for a summer picnic or an autumnal stroll through vividly coloured parkland. It's open all year round and is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. The town is set for major developments over the next few years, with a new welcome building at Auckland Castle, a new Museum extension, an institute of Spanish art and culture, and the redevelopment of the 17th Century Walled Garden which will feature stunning new glasshouses providing 'garden rooms' restaurant and event spaces. The town burst into life in 2016 as Eleven Arches presented the first season of ‘Kynren – an epic tale of England’ - the £31 million open-air live action night show that attracted more than 100,000 visitors during the summer. Kynren returns in 2017 to take audiences on an epic storytelling journey through 2,000 years. Bishop Auckland's historic town centre has a thriving arts and cultural offering, with the Bishop Auckland Town Hall home to a superb library, cinema, theatre and arts complex. Plus, the town has more than 200 shops - head for Bondgate for boutiques and specialist shops that you won’t find on the high street. A mile from the town are the remains of Binchester Roman Fort, home to the best preserved Roman military bath house in Britain. And at Escomb, you can see one of the finest examples of early Christian architecture in Northern Europe at the restored 7th Century Escomb Saxon Church. It's one of the first churches in the whole of the UK, so not really one to miss. Don't forget also the National Shildon Railway Museum for train enthusiasts. Shildon was pretty much the birthplace of railways so do please go and check out an engine or two. Bishop Auckland is very well placed for trips to lots of local castles, the North Pennines and day trips to Durham (half hour drive).
  • Good location near town centre. Great comfortable space. Comfy beds.

    Jim2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect. Thank you for a great stay.

    Réuben2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • I only stayed at Emma’s for one night, in preparation for an Exam I had in Bishop Auckland. It was the perfect place to stay to relax and get myself ready. I can see that this apartment would be great for larger groups too, including families, looking to get away and have some quality time.

    Lydia2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • The Regent's Chambers was a lovely flat and had all the amenities we needed. Emma was a fantastic host with great communication and a very handy check in video! The flat is about a 5min walk from the main high street and there's two big supermarkets a few minutes further. The town was lovely though it was just a shame we couldn't get out and about much because of the storm. If you're eating in Bishop Auckland I definitely recommend Beedles Chippy and Panda Panda. We managed to make a quick stop (40mins away) in the North Pennines on our drive back home. If you only have a little bit of time, I highly recommend the High Force falls. It was absolutely stunning and feels like you've been transported to somewhere in North America! I wish we could have spent a lot longer there!

    Sarah2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay if you’re in the area. All we needed and more. Will definitely stay here again next time we visit.

    Nick2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely accommodation plenty of space for a large family. Very comfortable beds.

    Julia2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed for an evening for a work trip, it was in an ideal location for us. It is quite a big space and could have definitely stayed for more than one day. Garden is secure if you have a dog, cannot hear much noise from the flat above. Nice little touches like cereals, butter, bread which you dont get from many air b and b's. Thanks Emma

    Ben2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Very cosy, everything you need, great location in outstanding countryside. Lovely to know host was only next door. Such a home from home, everything thought of . Would highly recommend 😁

    Jessica2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • Katrinas place is outstanding. It has a very comprehensive range of kitchen utensils/plates/glassware etc and the cooking facilities were excellent. Rooms are immaculately clean. They are also spacious and comfortable. I really can't think of anything that was less than a high standard and I will certainly be adding this to my list of "stay agains" In addition, Katrina is the perfect host. Excellent communication. Very helpful. definitely 5 stars.

    Anthony2019-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • Katrina’s cottage was everything I hoped it would be. It had the look of an old farm house but the amenities of modern day. I loved getting to see all of the cows and sheep in the pasture. Very relaxing place and not too far from civilization. Would definitely stay again and would recommend to anyone that wants some quiet time in the country. Was a little sad that the hot tub died before my stay, but Katrina made up for it by reducing the rate and providing a great place to stay with some nice little touches.

    Joanne2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Katrina's cottage. We stayed with our 2 daughters and they loved it. They were fascinated with the working farm around the cottage, watching the cows and sheep being moved from field to field kept them amused. This was our second time staying and we would stay again in a heartbeat, very clean and homely. Katrina is a great host who goes out of her way to make you feel welcome and adds little surprise home comforts to make your stay even better. Would highly recommend.

    Erin2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • This is an excellent cottage, sparkling clean, has everything you need. The views from the garden are splendid and the flock of sheep kept us entertained for hours. Katrina has supplied some lovely supplies and the cottage is very comfortable and cosy. Katrina and the family are very welcoming. Would highly recommend this cottage.

    Ann2019-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic place for families! We traveled there with our two little girls ages 4 and 2. She set up the cottage with baby gates, toys, a pack n play and more. Our kids loved being able to see the sheep and cows. The views are stunning. It’s a great location to see the English countryside and we were able to drive to several castles from this location. I would highly recommend this place!!! Trust me, you will not be disappointed.

    Tow Law, England, United Kingdom

    Set in a conservation area of Bishop Auckland, this spacious and welcoming flat is in a great location for visits to Auckland Castle, exploring the Pennines and visits to Durham. Kynren is also a short walk away. After a great day out come back to the gorgeous, light-filled rooms, cosy fireplace, comfortable sofas, speedy internet, super king size beds and spa bath. Couples, individuals, business travellers and families with kids (any age) are all very welcome.
    The flat has two large bedrooms with plenty of wardrobe and drawer space for your belongings. The super king size beds (6ft wide), one with 2000 Pocket Spring Memory Foam Mattress and the other with 3000 Pocket Pillow Top Spring Mattress will give you a restful night's sleep. In the sizable living room, the comfy full double sofa bed with memory foam mattress is accompanied by the chaise longue, cosy armchair and mahogany dresser and corner cabinet. The 49" 4K smart TV is in the corner, connected to the fastest internet available in the area (up to 74Mb) and a TalkTalk TV Box allowing you to pause and rewind 80 freeview channels. You can watch Super HD Netflix, Amazon Video and BBC iPlayer too - the flat comes with its own Netflix and Amazon accounts so no need for a subscription. The sofa bed is a full double memory foam fold-out version, so no uncomfortable crease down the middle that you get with clic-clac beds. There is plenty of storage for your clothes and belongings in the dresser, allowing you to properly unpack as you wish. In addition to the usual central heating (new radiators installed throughout), there is the very cosy gas fire in the living room, which is easy to operate and comes with children's safe guard for those of you with little ones coming to visit. The heating is easily controlled throughout the flat with a Nest thermostat - which also means the apartment will be nice and warm ready for your arrival. If you prefer more tropical temperatures there are also three electric heaters in both the bedrooms and living room. The dining kitchen is well stocked, both with essentials and with good cooking equipment. There are pots and pans of course, but there's also a slow cooker, steamer, weighing scale and juicer. When you arrive you will find real coffee for the cafetiere and a selection of teas. Herbs and oil are also included. The kitchen has a slimline dishwasher and washing machine too, which will help a lot for those intending to stay longer than a couple of days. There is bread in the freezer, plus a selection of spreads and cereals. The fridge has a water dispenser, butter and a bottle of prosecco! (You will need to bring your own milk, though). The bathroom has a corner bath with whirlpool jets. There is a standing shower (in the bath) so the bathroom is great for a quick shower before work or for long, luxurious bathing! There is a backyard too for some outdoor, private space away from the street. This is shared with the flat below, which is also airbnb. Don't hesitate to contact me with any questions :)

  • As so many previous reviewers have said, this is a huge flat which manages to be super toasty. It's a short walk into the town centre which is well served with shops, cafes. takeaways etc as well as some new cultural attractions. We didn't have a bad meal in Bishop Auckland, and would give a special mention to the cafe at the castle: you have to have a ticket for the castle to enter, however the Auckland pass is valid from purchase until the end of 2020, and we'll most certainly be trying to arrange a return visit. Fifteas in the town centre was also a big hit with our children who really enjoyed their 'afternoon tea'. In the flat we loved the electronic lock and nest heating controls: we didn't use the cooking facilities much as there's too many great local eateries to try, but everything was clean and it was a great budget friendly place to stay.

  • Jimmy and Anita’s farm was a great Airbnb find. Spacious accommodation, warm and spotlessly clean. Very well equipped with some provisions left for us . A real home from home. Wish we had time to say longer.

    Joan2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • The house is not far from the roadside and it is easy to find. Except for the smell of the decoration, the owner was very attentive. The picture books and toys for children are very good. The beds were enough and comfortable. The house is very spacious and the view outside is also very beautiful. I hope to have the opportunity to go back for the weekend in the future.

    默者如歌2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely snug property. I visited alone but it is a tardis of a property so will easily cater for a family. Some lovely touches, good communication and a personal visit to check all ok. Great hosts

    Richard2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great location on a farm near Crook in County Durham. Absolutely quiet and very dark at night. On my two nights, the starry sky was stunning. The house is among a group of others on a working farm. It's also off the main road, so very peaceful. I found it a great place to escape from London for couple of days and to explore the surrounding countryside. Check in was easy, WiFi was fast and reliable. Parking adjacent to the house was safe and secure. Nice to have an oven and hobs to cook, a decent large fridge freezer and microwave - perfect for making your own meals. Lots of local info in leaflets in the house too.

    Danny2020-01-25T00:00:00Z

We really enjoyed our time here and hope to stay again! Nothing was too much trouble and she was quick to respond when I had a query. The locations was great, close to the forest and walking distance to the local pub. Thanks again Dani! :)

    Lola2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage has a lot of rustic charm with exposed beams and an open fire. It has all the facilities you would need as well as nice touches like fuel for the fire (which was alight when arrived !) and breakfast items for you first morning. The village is very quiet with just a pub (good beer and good food) a couple of minutes walk away.

    Jerry2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Cosy, cute, warm and lovely little house. Spent a very nice night in a great little part of Co. Durham. It felt like home.

    Emma2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely little cottage, having the real fire was a lovely treat, as it was really cold on the night time. The host even left us some supplies to make breakfast. Would definitely recommend this place.

    Wayne2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely little one bed cottage in a lovely little village. Local pub close by and dog friendly. Having a lit fire when we arrived was amazing, thank you. Added extras were great also, like breakfast items and bathroom essentials like wipes etc. We had a great 2 night break away with our daughter and dogs. Host very responsive and helpful.

    Ashley2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Dani’s cottage is the perfect location for a peaceful break. It definitely saved us from the Christmas madness. Everything about this place eludes charm. From start to finish Dani couldn’t have been more helpful. From walking in to a lit open fire helping warm us on a cold day, to exploring the quaint cottage to find more thoughtful touches like fresh milk and bread and the Christmas decorations; everything was perfect. The ideal setting for walkers and dog owners.

    Within a five minute walk of traditional pub which provides delicious meals,also the Manor House restaurant, bar, Spa and wedding venue. A Fish and Chip shop opposite the apartment and a Spar supermarket next door. The apartment is on the main road 1 mile away from 2 big supermarkets and Tindale Crescent shopping Centre with the usual fast food restaurants TK Maxx Next and M&S Food. Set back a little but with lounge kitchen overlooking the main road so please be aware there is potential for noise, despite this behind the apartment is a small river and open fields and moors and the bedrooms are at the rear overlooking the countryside and are quiet. Close to walking and cycle routes and well placed for exploring, Auckland Castle, Raby Castle, Kynren, Beamish, Durham and the many cycling and walking paths in the area. A lovely stopover on the way to Scotland.
  • The pictures of the apartment don't do the place justice as its larger than it looks. The apartment was clean, well furnished and comfortable (the beds were extremely comfy). The hosts thoughtfully leave cereals, milk, tea, coffee and sugar for their guests. So when we arrived it was brilliant to be able to have a cup of tea after the long journey without having to go to the shops. There is a well stocked Spar next door and 2 massive supermarkets (Tesco and Sainsburys) 5 mins drive away if you need additional supplies. The apartment block is very secure and there is an undercover parking space assigned to the apartment. I found the parking space a little tight as i have a toddler to get out of my car (which is wide anyway), but there was ample parking on the road which was an additional couple of steps, so parking is not an issue if 2 cars were visiting. I could also see the car from the apartment window. The apartment was perfect for our needs and I will definitely be returning.

    Claire2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Really clean. Hand Spar shop next door. Didn't need ear plugs. Bed was really comfortable.

    Chris2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Clean and tidy, ideal for our needs, would stay again next time we are in the area.

    James2019-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • Despite being outside Bishop Auckland which is the city of reference, the accommodation is very well served by public transport, bus 6, which connects Cockfield to Durham (county seat), passing through the Bishop Auckland bus station. This means that from West Auckland where Lynn's apartment is located, it is easy to reach the beautiful areas at the foot of the Pennines as well as the sea of Seaham or Hartlepool. Lynn's apartment is very functional and comfortable. Lynn and David are really very kind and helpful and so we will be back.

  • The apartment was a perfect place for me to stay whilst visiting my daughter and grandson. Collecting keys and getting in was very straight forward and I really appreciated having a private parking space. The place felt cosy and had everything I needed. As others have said there was a little bit of street noise at the front in the lounge but the back where the bedrooms are is very quiet and I didn't get disturbed at all. The place was very clean and the bed very comfy. I would definitely stay again. Thanks for everything Emma.

    Recently refurbished miners cottage in the hamlet of Hummerbeck, light and bright offering great comfort and easy access to many local attractions. Close to all the major supermarkets gives plenty of choice. Enjoy a little luxury with our superking master bedroom with the versatility of bunk beds and sleeping up to six guests with a quality sofa bed. Perfect for a short break, holiday or business trip. Your dog is welcome too so the whole family can come. Parking is directly opposite the cottage
    Located on the A68 so please note there will be some traffic noise but it's mostly quite at night. The cottage is almost 120 years old and has low head space on the stairs, so take care particularly if you are tall.
    Ideal if you are visiting Kynren, not far from Durham City and 30/40 minutes from Newcastle. Beamish museum is a great day out for all the family and Locomotion at Shildon there are many other attractions. Great local walks or cycling on pathways and bridleways or drive to the Pennines.
  • Me and a couple of mates stayed here whilst visiting Hamsterly forest. This is a lovely little place, modern, comfy and spotlessly clean! It has all the amenities you need and more. Communication was great and check in a doddle, couldn't fault it at all and will be staying here again next time we visit the area. Thanks Steve and Lynne for an even better than anticipated stay 🙂

  • Steve and Lynne are amazing hosts. The property is clean and immaculately presented. I loved all the little extra touches like a complimentary bottle of wine and biscuits. They even put up a small Christmas tree to make it festive. I would whole heartedly recommend this property to anyone needing to stay in the Bishop Auckland area.

If the rain ruins your stay you have the choice of Sky, DVDs or board games to keep you occupied. Anna was at home when we arrived and let us in to the flat and was available if we had problems, which we didn’t. The bedroom is light and airy and the bed is extremely comfortable. The shower in the bathroom was powerful. If you are looking for accommodation in Darlington, look no further than here. Absolutely wonderful.

    Tony2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cottage which is dog friendly and very cozy. There was milk in the fridge on arrival and a doggie pack with towels and bowls etc. The log burner is a nice feature and the location is good for exploring the local area. There are no shops in the village but if you drive a mile or so up the road to Tow Law you can stock up on the essentials. We didn’t meet the hosts but communication with John was very good.

  • A genuine welcome by John, with a fire lit in the woodburner - great on a cold frosty day. A spotlessly clean cottage, with walks from the door or ideal for visiting Durham. Food in the pub is great value and quality - and just across the street. Wish we could have stayed longer.

  • I unexpectedly needed to help out some family in Crook, so booked Carol's place quite last minute. It was ideally located for exploring the surrounding area, and it was a really comfortable place to relax after being out and about all day. I would recommend taking your warmest pyjamas as the heating is on a timer and so it is cold at night. The check-in/-out process was easy.

  • Great little home from home. I needed somewhere to stay for me and my senior dog while we were in-between selling and buying a house. Didn't want to stay in a hotel so wanted an entire place to ourselves to relax more. Just right for what we needed. Small artificial turfed courtyard which was nice. Cosy lounge with smart TV which was a nice bonus for a tech person like myself too. Never had a problem parking outside the property too. Thanks.

  • We stayed at Joanna's place for 3 nights. It is clean and very well appointed, as per the listing, with lots of living and storage space for up to four people. The jacuzzi bath is a nice touch, although do note that the bathroom is downstairs. As a couple we used the rear bedroom, which was very quiet. We didn't notice any noise from the nearby pub. The front bedroom is next to the road, but traffic volume was light both in the day and at night. The host Joanna does not appear to live locally, but was helpful with instructions for finding and accessing the property beforehand, along with details of an emergency local contact in case of need. There were plenty of parking options nearby, both on- and off-street. Recommended.

    Andrew2019-07-16T00:00:00Z

    Mark2019-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely cottage, with everything you'll need, in the middle of a small Durham village. Handy to drive into Durham and see all the sights of Northumbria. Some nice pubs a short walk away, we liked The Ship Inn, which was the furthest, about 800 yards from our door the best. Joanna and Gary responded very quickly to all our needs and we would highly recommend a stay there. Great value for money.

    Robert2019-07-04T00:00:00Z
  • The house was really cosy and in a nice quiet location (but close to nearby Spennymoor town centre). It was spotless and had 2 good sized bedrooms with very comfy beds. The kitchen was fully equipped with all you need and the bathroom has both a shower and a jacuzzi bath which was lovely to relax in). Free wi-fi is available and the tv in the lounge (also cosy) worked well. Plenty of on street parking is available with no restrictions (I parked outside the house pretty much every day of my stay). If visiting the area again I would have no hesitations of staying at Joanna's house again.

  • 3 nights in Middlestone later and we are feeling refreshed and relaxed. Thank you to Tony and Jane for being great hosts. The house was perfect for our needs. We didn't go out because we were so comfortable, particularly with the wood burners. Even though one of the nights was New Year's Eve, it was very quiet and wonderfully dark in the bedroom.

    Ryan2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great pub across the road , great food , shall return

    Gary2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Nice quiet village with plenty of countryside and closeby attractions. Checkin was very easy, being able to collect the key from their pub directly opposite the cottage. The cottage itself was beaming with character, with log fire already set up to light, spotless and clean. Will definitely be staying again soon.

John provided love Christmas touches in the cottage which were lovely. We would highly recommend this cottage. Thanks John.

    A charming, and beautiful lodge in a idyllic woodland location, Fairbeck Lodge is every inch the beautiful setting for your well-deserved break. Whilst it appears to be set in a remote rural location, it is in fact incredibly well-situated to be able to visit attractions , shopping centres etc that are easily accessible from the main road: A1M . Let us help you to feel like you’re ‘home from home’!
    The small and cosy lodge is a private space in a peaceful location , surrounded by woodland . Fairbeck Lodge has a stunning view overlooking the fields and woods. It is beautifully furnished with luxury bedding and it’s own kitchen facilities. (Including continental breakfast /welcome pack). Next door there is a private art studio which is available for any budding artists. A warm and friendly welcome awaits all our guests. Easily located to access the A1M to all Durham and Newcastle attractions. Ideal midway stop if travelling from the South to Scotland. But not only that, we’re also ideally situated for any customers to local businesses, family visiting students at Durham University and Kynren etc. This idyllic rural location would appeal to guests looking for a place to relax and unwind. A truly beautiful lodge in a stunning location.
    Fairbeck lodge is a peaceful oasis of calm and tranquility in the middle of several acres of mature woodland, It’s a private property that we love to share with others who appreciate rural life.
  • We were greeted upon arrival by both Tim and Julie, who gave us a quick tour and left us to our stay. Very nice people with a definite passion for hosting. The place is tucked away off the main road, very peaceful and quiet. It's very cute and ideal for couples. Decorated nicely with subtle details, it has character and a homely feel rather than being sterile and cold. Well heated, has offroad parking, clean, with a folder full of local and relevant details to increase the comfort of your stay. I would thoroughly recommend this place to others. We had a slight technical issue with the shower playing up, but that shouldn't reflect upon the host as sometimes things just dont always work as they should. And although we weren't seeking any recompense, Tim and Julie insisted on compensating us for the inconvenience. Very professional and appreciated.

    Tom2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great hosts. Responded quickly to any queries! Gorgeous little property. Very very clean. Nice thoughtful touches. Highly recommend.

    The Railway Manager's house is classic victorian and built by the railway in a grand style. At the centre of wonderful countryside and places of historical interest. Shildon Railway Museum, Bishop Auckland Castle, Binchester (Romans), Weardale Steam Railway, Beamish - living museum of the north, Bowes Museum Durham, Newcastle, Darlington, Barnard Castle. Weardale, Teesside, Pennines. The house has been handsomely decorated and maintained and electric gates complete the outside.
    The accommodation is on three floors accessed via beautiful mahogany handrail stairs and carpeted throughout. It is warm and cosy with very effective central heating (plus a log burner in the 'snug' and an open gas fire in the living room). The large kitchen is fully equipped and has a table to match. A bathroom on the first floor with shower over, a wetroom on the ground floor and a wc with sink on the third. The main bedroom is on the first floor, a double and a single on the third and a comfortable sofa bed in the snug. There is space for a cot in each bedroom should it be needed.
    Reviews have been very complementary. This house is first class in every way. Kynren! The Spanish Art Gallery! Railway Treasures! Shopping made easy: an extensive retail park is almost adjacent (including Tesco, Sainsbury's, M&S and Lidl. Low cost fuel!) Two pubs and a chip shop within easy (less than 5 minutes) walking distance. The Manager's House is special and self-contained if you'd like it to be. Behind its hedge and walls you are in your own world. Outside is a world of industrial and rural heritage, a town that is rediscovering itself and where huge investments continue to be made to create a treasure trove of culture and modern services to enjoy.
  • Spotless homely and well equipped. Everything we could need for a real home from home feel. Love the house and the location and amenities are good for us when visiting family.

  • Trishs place was perfect for our needs. We stayed with the inlaws, and they slept in separate beds. The sofa bed was excellent. A spacious home and very warm, we even had the log fire on, just for the atmosphere. There were at least two pubs within a short walking distance, both of which we recommend, and there's loads of supermarkets and eateries nearby too.

    Helen2019-11-08T00:00:00Z

It has a sitting area, plus central Wi-Fi. We have young children ( Kids very cute, love people and guests love them !! ). However there is potential for noise particularly between 7-8am and between 5-8pm (because of activities during school run and bedtime routine).

The guest bedroom looks out onto a green and front garden where you can chill out, read a book during the summer and enjoy the sunshine. * Shared bathroom - you can relax in a warm bath at the end of a days sightseeing - aromatherapy oils, candles and fluffy towels provided! We only have one bathroom which we use with no problem as we give priority to our guests, so don't let that defer you. * Tea/Coffee and biscuits on arrival. * I can provide cereals, yogurt and fruits, choice of teas. (Please inform host if you will like this and of any food intolerances in advance so that they can be catered for). * we are well traveled hosts and can provide lots of recommendations on places to go and things to do in Durham and in the rest of the country.

The hamper with champagne and festive treats was very special. The key box made check-in and out very easy. Lots of nice walks nearby and we had a lovely visit to Durham during our stay. We would definitely recommend this property and it was very good value for money.

    Our house, Whispering Waters, contains a private, contemporary two-room apartment suite, with its own private access via an exclusive south-facing deck, 21 mtrs above the tree-lined River Tees. Lying in bed, it's as if you’re in a treehouse with the treetops visible outside the window. Situated in Lower Teesdale (on the A67, between Barnard Castle and Darlington - around 7 miles/11km from each), Whispering Waters is a house without neighbours, immediately adjacent to, and above the River Tees.
    The suite comprises a double bedroom with king-sized double bed, a modern shower room, and a living room. The latter has tea and coffee making facilities, a small fridge containing fresh milk, water, juice, and light continental-style breakfast (please let us know if you have any specific dietary requirements). The lounge area can be provided with a foldout single bed. If you need that, let us know and we'll see what we can arrange. There is a TV and free WIFI.
    The village of Gainford is a five minute walk away with a general shop, a butcher, post office, hairdressers, cafe, fish and chip shop and a pub. There's also a pretty village green and other beautiful walks along the river. There are a number of quality restaurants less than ten minutes drive, including the only 2* Michelin restaurant in the North East, The Raby Hunt. Other local attractions (all within a fifteen minute drive) include the independent shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants in the Teesdale town of Barnard Castle, which also houses the amazing Bowes Museum in Barnard Castle (a full-sized French chateau in a medieval English market town). The remarkable Raby Castle is also close by. Darlington town centre (with its main-line railway station) is a twenty minute drive away, as is the North Yorkshire market town of Richmond. Ten minutes beyond Barnard Castle, into upper Teesdale, you enter an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and what is known as England's Last Wilderness, which includes one of Britain’s highest waterfalls, High Force. There are wonderful walks all over Teesdale, with some spectacular views.
  • I would highly recommend this stay as bill and the surrounding area are amazing and definitely worth the low price they carge.

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Bill's place. The location was perfect for what we planned to do, from taking trips into Barnard Castle, up to High Force and exploring the local area. The place was easy to find, just a short distance from a friendly village, with even nicer fish and chips. We found the communication to be good in the lead up to our stay, so we knew exactly what to do on our arrival. The privacy was good, and there were lots of nice touches throughout the rooms. We would really recommend Bill's place!

  • This is our third stay at David and Lynn’s home. Their home is a perfect family getaway. With all the basic comforts and more, it’s ideal for a holiday. Easy access to public transport makes for a trouble free holiday. There’s plenty to do in town: walks by the river, castle and museum visits. Stanley Jefferson is a nice place for a meal with children ( kids are allowed until 21:00 hrs). Gregory’s and Chittocks were two nice local groceries. The coffee shop at the railway station has good breakfast.

Even though there were loads of pubs and restaurants around the are we were easily able to prepare our meals and use the dining area. It’s a good location for ranging out to different places. If you’re into castles there are loads to see around the area. The countryside is stunning and very green.

    Sally2019-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay in Darlington topped off with a day out in Durham only 20 minutes or so up the road. The property was clean, well presented and had everything we could have wanted for our weekend stay. Thanks to our hosts Sally and Jake for helping to make it a lovely weekend.

    David2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place to stay with a well equipped house that has everything you'll likely need. The check in was easy, just a coded box and no issues with directions, the satnav takes you straight to the door. Parking is plentiful and free and there are a few local shops nearby. The house is better than I expected and the photos don't do it justice, the main bedroom is larger than I expected. It was clean throughout with clear instructions and it had a fridge, cooker, cutlery etc. The owner left a bottle of milk which was a nice touch if you arrive late and need a coffee in the morning. All in all a great stay.

    Gordon2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • Beautifully presented home away from home in a peaceful residential location close to local amenities. Friendly welcome and thoughtful touches throughout.

    WALKING DISTANCE TO KYNREN IDEAL ALTERNATIVE TO A HOTEL for anyone working in the area. This beautifully fitted two bedroom first floor apartment is situated in the centre of Bishop Auckland. All amenities, bars, and shops are within walking distance, very well located as a base for lots of sight seeing including: the seaside, the Lake District, Hamsterley forest , Durham City and not forgetting Bishop Aucklands castle and Kynren.
    Would be good accommodation for anyone working in the area , giving plenty of home comforts instead of a hotel . There are two double bedrooms, both with crisp fresh bedding for a very comfortable nights sleep, small kitchen area and generous size lounge , The bathroom has a bath with a shower over it . All brand new fittings, carpets and decor . The apartment offers cosy accommodation for 4 adults and has 1 designated parking space in the entrance courtyard. All basic essentials are included.
    The biggest thing for the location is the walking distance access to Kyren the fantastic medieval show which is an outdoor epic tale of England this has proved to be very popular along with viewing tower in the marketplace and Bishop Auckland Castle. There are some very popular tea shops in the marketplace and some very nice places to eat on an evening just a very short drive away.
  • Great

  • Lovely home. Ashley was very accomodating.

    Sarah2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • An absolute gem of a property, fresh smelling, beautifully clean, warm and with cosy beds. Friendly communication, a great stay.

    Clare2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • This is an absolute gem of a place to stay. Quite unexpected. Nigel and Ashley are fantastic hosts. The flat is immaculate and was lovely and warm when we arrived (Nov 2019) There was even milk, bread, butter and jam, plus cereal there. Very tastefully decorated. Very impressed. Highly recommended. When your sat nav says you have arrived at your destination, ignore it. Drive straight on, to the left of the shopping centre car park and straight down to almost the bottom. Just past the last lamp post on the left, is a set of gates. Drive in there for access to the property and park in one of the spaces. It was the easiest way to find it, thanks to Nigel. I can't recommend the property enough and Bishop Auckland has a lot to offer.

    Gabrielle2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • Apartment very well located in the city center and yet very quiet.

    Situated in the small pleasant village of Woodland this comfortable stone built cottage adjoining the owners house enjoys magnificent South facing panoramic views over open countryside from the North Yorkshire Moors to the Pennines. The village which is just 7 miles from the bustling historic market town of Barnard Castle has a well stocked shop with post office and pub all within walking distance.
    This 200 year old, carefully cared for and modernised accommodation sleeps a maximum of four people in 2 first floor bedrooms, one double and 1 twin. The ground floor comprises a large living room, well equipped kitchen and dining area. The cottage enjoys magnificent panoramic open views at the front and a private sheltered garden to the side with picnic table. Woodland is also the perfect location for your touring holiday base.

Lying between the Yorkshire Dales and the Northumberland National Park the Durham Dales of Teesdale and Weardale offer some of the country`s finest scenery - a blend of rugged upland, impressive waterfalls, gentle river valleys, wildflower meadows and drystone walls. Woodland offers a good base for exploring the area and there is plenty of scope for walking and other outdoor activities, which can all be enjoyed amidst the impressive North Pennine scenery.
  • We had a wonderful stay at Woodland Cottage. It was so comfortable and we looked forward to spending cosy evenings inside after long days exploring the area. It had everything we needed and so many extra special touches. Cliff was kind enough to allow a late check in and even though we ended up arriving later than planned due to holiday traffic there were no issues. Would recommend, would stay again in a heartbeat!

    Olivia2019-05-06T00:00:00Z
  • Spotlessly clean and amazingly well-equipped. The cottage has fabulous open views, and several enticing footpaths almost from the door. Comfy beds and plenty of fluffy towels. A secluded and pretty little garden which catches the morning sun - perfect for outdoor breakfast! Cliff and Barbara were perfect hosts, welcoming and informative without a hint of intruding.
