Additional amenities & feature info
The open plan kitchen and living area with vaulted ceiling is a lovely space to get together, we have a gas burner in the lounge with room to get cosy and enjoy a book or movie, perfect for autumn/winter breaks.

How to get there
Airport: Newcastle International: 25.0 km
Railway: Durham Train Station: 21.0 km
Ferry: North Shields: 28.0 km
Follow the A1(M) until you reach the turn off for Chester-le-Street. At the roundabout take the road sign-posted A693 for Stanley and the Beamish Museum. Take this road, and head for Stanley. After crossing two roundabouts, you will come across a third, roundabout where the signs for Beamish Museum tell you to turn off to the right - take this turn.

Just in front of the arched entrance to the museum, there is a left turn, which you must take. Keep on this road down into the bottom of the valley, past a high wall on your left and through a very sharp left- hand turn, past the Coppy Lodge on your right, until you arrive at a 'T' junction, with a hump-backed bridge to the left. Turn right at this junction, the road goes up then levels out and then up and levels out again. You will n...
