About this location

The County Durham region

The North east of England is England's best kept secret. Warm and friendly people, beautiful, wild countryside and stunning sandy beaches with historic castles along the coastline. The area has plenty to see and do and rarely gets too busy or crowded.

For historians there is Hadrians Wall and dozens of smaller encampments as well as the award winning Beamish outdoor museum.

The magnificent historic city of Durham is a must with its beautiful Cathedral and cobbled paths.

Visit Newcastle and Gateshead to see the amazing Millenium bridge and take a walk along the quayside ( market on Sundays ).

Newcastle has an abundance of lovely restaurants and night life with something for everyone.

The region has an impressive network of public footpaths and cycle paths with breath taking scenery.

Only 2 miles from Isabella house you are in Northumberland with its magnificent coastal routes with miles of unspoilt golden sandy beaches ( Bamburgh caslte ) being a must to visit.

The region offers a great outdoor experience with the opportunity to hit the nightlife in the evening if you like to do both.


Medomsley has 1 small local shop ( open 6am to 11pm daily), 2 excellent pubs and a 12th century church. It is just 2.5 miles from Consett town with supermarkets, shops and numerous pubs and restaurants.

For food enthusiasts there are pubs and restaurants everywhere specialising in local produce and real ales.

For families there is plenty to do outdoors with the North East having an abundance of country parks, walks and picnic areas. For days out, close by there is Diggerland and Hall Hill petting farm within 10 minutes drive, Beamish museum is 6 miles away, a must if you want to see how people lived and worked in days gone by.

Newcastle and Durham are 11 miles from Isabella house and the Derwent walk and cycle track only 1 mile from the house, starting in Consett this was once the train track that carried coal from Tynemouth to Consett for the steel works now long gone.

This is now a national cycle track as well being great for walkers, with its industrial past long gone it is now an area of great beauty.

There are local horse riding centres close by and information on how to book can be found with other information on places to visit locally at the house.

We have 2 excellent pubs within easy walking distance from the house. The Royal Oak and the Miners Arms are both family friendly and offer a warm welcome offering a good choice of menu.

The Royal Oak is a free house offering a good choice of beers and good quality food at great prices, ideal for families.

The Miners arms has a bar and restaurant with a good menu and offering Sunday roasts. If you get the chance give them a try you won't be disappointed.

"Great family holiday"

Great holiday at ISABELLA HOUSE. All 7 of us had a fantastic time on holiday with lots to do and many places to visit. Went to local hotels where we were served lovely meals from very friendly staff who made us feel welcome. Will definately come back if house is available as it is a great size with 4 large bedrooms and a great eating/entertaining area and a very nice garden. Super holiday.

"Calm and wonderful stay at Isabella House"

Me and my family, a party of 7 adults and 3 children stayed at Isabella House July 16-23, 2013. Our reason for being there was the wedding of our son in St. Robert church in Newcastle..

Our stay at Isabella House was very good. The house was very good for this group of 10. The garden was wonderful to stay in and the children had good times playing in the garden.

It took us only about 30 min. to drive to Newcastle and experience what a city has to offer. But every time we returend back to the quiet village of Medomsley we were happy to be back in the more relaxed environment.

The owners of Isabella House did us a great service which we appreciate very much.

"Luxury house"

Isabella house is lovely place to stay. The conservatory and large open plan kitchen, diner and lounge provide lots of space and are quite luxurious. Bedrooms have very comfy beds and the views are breathtaking. We really enjoyed our stay there.

Our 2nd visit to this lovely house and equally as enjoyable as the first. Our mission was a family christening in the nearby area, a bit of shopping and more exploring of the many things to see and do within easy travel radius. The house is a delight, warm welcoming and so comfortable it felt like home with all the family sitting round the big dining table and enjoying board games, chats and banter.... we'll do it again for sure!
