Holiday Cottages in Co Durham

Holiday cottages in Co Durham are, in some cases, among the best kept secrets in Britain. Especially in that wild and woolly corner of England to the east and south of the Cumbrian border near Alston and Nenthead, and north of the North Yorkshire border.

We'd say that Durham holiday cottages near Stanhope, say, and holiday cottages in or near St John's Chapel, Barnard Castle, Middleton-in-Teesdale, Tow Law and Durham itself have a special charm. They're in a location less affected by tourism and are notably inexpensive, though they 'tick all the boxes'.

Though we have doubts about the use of the pseudo-ancient word 'Northumbria' (it originally referred to a small part of what's now coastal Northumberland), hi-jacked 35 years ago by the newly-formed tourist board, Durham holiday cottages seem to qualify in the new sense as Northumbrian holiday cottages!
