Cathedral, castle or Oriental museum? Durham’s UNESCO world heritage sites are just a short drive or bus ride away.

The space
Come through your own front door to the kitchenette (hob, microwave, mini-oven, kettle, washer/drier, fridge etc). There will be tea and coffee for you, with basic crockery, cultery and cooking utensils. Straight ahead is an area with hanging space, a table and chairs for dining or working and which could also be used as a place where your pet could sleep or where a child's cot/bed could be housed (bring your own cot, bed or pet mat). Turn right and you'll find the main bedroom, with double bed and TV (with DVD and online streaming services such as Netflix). Off the main bedroom is the bathroom, with thermostatic rain shower and separate hand shower, full size bath, toilet and basin. You'll find soap, towels and shampoo there too.

Where you’ll be

Brandon, England, United Kingdom

Walk up the hill for 5 minutes and there's a lovely farm/woodland walk with stunning views eastwards over Weardale. Walk down the hill for 5 minutes and there's the Brandon-Bishop Auckland Way with walking and cycling along Weardale or to Brandon Woods. Within an easy stroll, we have a supermarket (open 7:00 until 10:00 pm Monday to Saturday, 10:00 to 4:00 on Sunday), Gregg's and a good Pizza takeaway/delivery place. Dog walks are plentiful with lots of quiet grass areas.

Durham and its environs offer a large number of places of interest ranging from nature reserves to historical buildings and museums. The coast with beaches is about 20 miles away and Weardale is on your doorstep.
