The Durham Dales 

Your holiday cottage sits in Teesdale, which makes up the Durham Dales with Weardale. If ever an area deserved the phrase ‘hidden gem’ or ‘undiscovered secret’, this is it.

 With the Lake District to the west, the Yorkshire Dales to the south and historic Durham to the north, Teesdale’s often overlooked. Yet it has all the gorgeous charm of the Dales with none of the high-season crowds. And of course, those Lakes and Dales are just a short, scenic drive away.

See everyday life from the 1950’s, 1940’s, Victorian and Edwardian times brought to life in this world-famous open-air museum.

Once the official residence of the Bishops of Durham, second only to the monarchy in power and influence. See one of the largest private chapels in Europe, meet conservation experts, and admire the princely walled gardens. 

High Force waterfall is a force of nature, plunging 21 metres over ancient rocks into the Tees below. A family-friendly half-hour hike will take you there.

Potter the antique shops, cafes, and quirky independents that dot this ancient market town, then head to the castle ramparts to watch the canoes and anglers battle with the tumbling Tees.

Walk the five acres of ornamental walled gardens. Watch the red and fallow deer graze in the 200 acres of lush parkland. Hire bikes. Discover an absorbing collection of coaches and carriages in the coach yard. Watch hours fly by.
