Description from owner


Luxury self-catering cottage 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, dog friendly. 15 minutes from Durham City and 5 minutes from Bishop Auckland home of Auckland Castle & Eleven Arches nightshow Kynren. Perfect for cyclists with Hamsterley Forest Descend nearby and set in the picturesque countryside of County Durham, the 2-bed detached single storey cottage is a perfect retreat for guests seeking a country escape in luxury holiday accommodation, to chill out and recharge in peace and tranquillity.

Situated close to the village of Hunwick, Bracken Hill Farm Cottage is a delightful self-catering property situated at the gate-way to the Durham Dales and is easily accessible by car and public transport.

This barn conversion has been sympathetically converted to the highest standard and provides guests with everything they need for a comfortable and relaxing stay whilst still retaining some of the original features.

The cottage has underfloor heating thermostatically controlled in each room, WiFi and Sky TV. A spacious open plan living area with impressive vaulted ceiling and wood burning stove leads to a fully equipped kitchen and dining area with table and four chairs. There are two bedrooms both with super-king size zip and link beds easily converted to singles if required. The master bedroom is en-suite with a large walk in shower. There is also a separate bathroom. Guests can benefit from a secure south westerly facing garden with patio where you can enjoy the breath-taking views of the unspoilt County Durham countryside and stunning sunsets.

The cottage is self-contained with its own private drive-way and car park plus a secured shed for storage and bikes.

Well behaved dogs are welcome.

Please note that smoking is not permitted in any indoor areas of the cottage.

Bracken Hill Farm Cottage is situated on the outskirts of Hunwick which boasts two pubs with restaurants offering home cooked food and real ale and both within walking distance.

The cottage is 9 miles away from Durham City and within easy reach of Weardale and Teesdale.

Bracken Hill Farm Cottage is the perfect base for a holiday to relax and unwind and for exploring the County Durham and Northumberland countryside with it its many walking trails and cycling routes. There are a number of local attractions nearby such as Auckland Castle, The Bowes Museum and Binchester Roman Fort plus quaint market towns such as Barnard Castle, Stanhope and Wolsingham.

Very Good

“Absolutely Perfect Place to Stay”

Reviewed 1 May 2018

A very warm welcome on arrival by Ang. It was obvious from the start that we would thoroughly enjoy our stay. The cottage is ideally placed so you have privacy but not isolated. Although we didn’t need to bother Ang for anything it was very clear that nothing would be too much trouble. The fridge was stocked with fresh eggs, milk and lovely local cheese. Fresh bread and biscuits as well as dog treats was a lovely surprise. The cottage was spacious, very clean and tastefully decorated. I could live there quite easily and comfortablely! The underfloor heating and not forgetting the superb log burner were taken full advantage of! We absolutely loved the place. And so did our dog! With a private and very secure garden overlooking a field with sheep. Just really added to the already stunning feel of the place. I’ve stayed in quite a few lodges/cottages but this place really does stand out from the rest. Although the pictures on here are lovely, you really do need to stay here to really appreciate how gorgeous this place is. I now have to buy some of the smellies (smelled gorgeous) that are in the spa-like bathrooms! It really was like a spa experience under the waterfall shower! Thank you Ang. A very welcome retreat indeed. I’m sure we will be back! That’s if you’ll have us again!

Owner's reply: Awww, I'd love you to come back. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such an amazing review. You are welcome anytime. Ang
