Leny's is a handsome detached stone house, situated in beautiful countryside. The property has been recently fully renovated and tastefully refurnished. The extensive gardens give plenty of scope for relaxation and the house enjoys outstanding views of the surrounding scenery. The house is just one mile from Middleton-in-Teesdale, a thriving market town with many interesting shops and places to eat.

A large forest adjacent to the house provides wonderful woodland walks, with streams and becks, which are ideal for picnics, paddling or just enjoying the peace and tranquillity. Miles of public footpaths, quiet country lanes, forest tracks and heather moors, make the area ideal for walking, cycling and pony-trekking.

Nearby attractions include the Bowes museum, Raby Castle and High Force, which, at 70ft, is the highest unbroken waterfall in England. The house is only approx. one hour's drive from Durham, York, the Beamish Museum, the Lake District and Hadrian's Wall.

Accommodation includes a spacious fully fitted dining kitchen with a log-burning stove. A glass sun-room and cosy sitting room, with open fire, providing ample areas for relaxation, whatever the season. Upstairs, the landing leads to a large double bedroom. The second bedroom has both a double and a single bed. The third bedroom accommodates two bunk beds. There is a shower-room with sink and toilet as well as a fully-fitted family bathroom with shower and bath.

Northern England region

Other areas of interest lie about an hour's drive from the house, If you fancy exploring further afield, there are wide range of places to visit in the region. The Lake District, famous for its lakes, forests and mountains, has inspired artists and writers, such as Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth, as well as providing excellent venues for those who enjoy walking, climbing and water-sports. Little ones will love The Beatrix Potter Attraction, while older children may want to try the "Go Ape" experience. Grizedale Forest has something for all.

The historic city of York, with its rich ancient history, romantic ambience and fun activities, is the perfect destination for a very full day out. Renowned for its architecture, quaint cobbled streets and iconic cathedral, it also hosts The Yorvik Centre, York Dungeons, The Castle Museum and a number of spine-tingling ghost tours. It is also a very popular shopping destination.

Hadrian's Wall is also within easy reach of the cottage, with its world-class archaeology, dramatic forts, spectacular landscapes and informative visitor centres, it really brings the past to life.

Taking this idea a step further, Beamish Open Air Museum is a wonderful example of "living history", telling the story of life in the North East of England in Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian times. Standing in 300 acres of Durham country side, it boasts a pit village, colliery, working Victorian farm, 18thc manor house and a bustling Edwardian market town. A variety of vintage trams and buses are available to carry you to each location in style and costumed staff are on hand to tell you more about everyday life in years gone by.

Barnard Castle

The Durham Dales is a stunningly beautiful rural area in the west of County Durham, where you will find some of the highest, wildest and finest scenery in England. Part of the North Pennines, it includes one of the largest "areas of outstanding natural beauty" including the UK's first "European and Global Geopark".

It's easy to see the beauty of the landscape, the dry stone walls, picturesque villages and field barns as well as the sweeping meadows and moors. But, if you look more closely, you wll see some of the area's special secrets unfold. The rarity of the geology, as well as the flora and fauna, make this area internationally important. This region is outstandingly beautiful and full of interest, but is largely undiscovered by the tourism industry, making it a wonderful, unspoilt location to explore and in which to relax.

For family days out, the Bowes Museum is a world-class visitor attraction with an outstanding permanent collection as well as exciting exhibitions throughout the year. Built in the style of a French chateau, set in beautiful parkland, the museum provides plenty of activities for young and old alike, with a special events programme too. Barnard Castle is a picturesque market town, with lots of local character, a formidable castle and an astonishing range of antique shops. Who knows what you'll find!

Raby Castle is extremely impressive with striking interiors, deer park, walled gardens, carriage collection, tearoom and woodland adventure playground. For charm, it is hard to beat Rokeby Hall, a palladian style country house on the banks of the River Tees, with a unique collection of 18thc needlepainting pictures.

The area also boasts High Force which, at 70ft, is the highest unbroken waterfall in England. Well worth a look! Every part of the region is worth exploring, which is why we keep a drawer full of maps and guides at the cottage, showing everything from short gentle strolls to full-day hikes.
