Location description from owner

The England region

Described as England's 'last wilderness', and possibly one of the best kept secrets, the Durham Dales are situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, made up of a wonderful blend of rugged upland, impressive waterfalls, fertile river valleys and wild flower meadows.Pleasant towns and pretty villages dot the area - the historic town of Barnard Castle lies within easy reach, and boasts castle remains overlooking the town, as well as Bowes Museum. Built as an impressive French-style chateau, the museum houses a magnificant collection of fine and decorative art. Other places of interest are Raby Castle, Killhope Wheel, Beamish, High Force and Hamsterley Forest. The local village of Stanhope is home to the Durham Dales Centre with its tourist information centre.Hexham is a popular day trip out as well as Durham City with its fabulous Cathedral. You can also be to the Lake District in an hour.

Frosterley

Set within its own grounds in the heart of the village of Frosterley is this exceptionally spacious property which was formally the village school. It is surrounded by unspoilt countryside and is set in a haven of peace and tranquility.
