Vacation Home Rock Cottage
Rock Terrace New Brancepeth, Durham, DH7 7EP, United Kingdom – Great location - show map
|Max adults: 4||
Rock Cottage is an old mining terraced cottage. This cosy characterful peaceful house situated in a lovely residential area 3 miles from Durham City. It is ideal for a perfect quiet stay. Very easy access into the City with a bus right outside less than 20 minutes direct to the city centre. Unfortunately I do not allow pets to stay. I would NOT welcome groups (hen/stag) as the neighbours are elderly so I would want to always respect their lovely quiet neighbourhood. Offering 2 double bedrooms, the first bedroom is spacious and the second bedroom offers a small double bed and whilst compact can still comfortably accommodate 2 adults. There is a separate dressing room with wardrobe and chest of drawers. The kitchen/dining room is very well equipped with all the cooking items you need. Oven, gas hob, washing machine, fridge freezer, microwave, toaster etc. We offer complementary tea, coffee, sugar, cooking oil, salt, pepper, washing up liquids etc. and important for those summer cocktails, ice in the freezer. There is a rear courtyard with table and chairs. Parking is allowed in front of the property.
New to holiday rental, I am loving offering this home to holiday guests. I own a good portfolio of rental properties but this is my first holiday let. I love DIY, walking my dog Ernie, keen gardener, growing my own vegetables and I am a member of my village choir. Love to holiday with my husband Dave and generally loving life.
This is a beautiful neighbourhood. Very quiet residential area of Durham. New Brancepeth is an old mining village and most of the residents have lived here all their lives. Stunning views and great walks. Direct bus route to the City Centre less than a 20 minute journey. Beautiful woods just 4 minutes away Whilst there is a new housing development built opposite Rock Cottage thankfully this house still has the beautiful views over the surrounding countryside and villages.
