County Durham is a truly charming county in the North East of England.

Things to do in County Durham

The North Pennines are a huge attraction in County Durham. The huge swathes of wild countryside, carved by gushing streams and teeming with wildlife make County Durham and the North Pennines a hugely popular destination with walkers, hikers and mountain bikers looking to enjoy the wildest of English landscapes first hand. From the wild moors of Upper Teeside to the huge woodlands of the Castle Eden Dene National Park, there are always more routes to explore from self catering County Durham accommodation. England’s largest waterfall, High Force can also be found in the North Pennines, and makes for a wonderful picnic spot on a walking holiday.

The coastline is equally spectacular. The 11 miles Durham Coastal Path is a particular highlight, taking visitors along dramatic cliff tops, down to delightful little sand beaches and to some of County Durham’s most impressive historical sites. County Durham is awash with wonderfully well preserved historical sites, including Durham Cathedral, ‘the best cathedral on Earth’. There are monuments from the Saxon, Norman and medieval periods, including the dramatic Durham Castle, Raby Castle and Auckland Castle, all of which are well worth exploration from houses to rent in County Durham.

Whether you are interested in a theatre, comedy, gourmet restaurants or top class musical events, you will be wonderfully entertained from any of the houses to rent in County Durham. The Beamish Mary Pub is especially renowned for its live music, especially folk, and there are annual Blues, Film and Comedy festivals to enjoy from County Durham accommodation too.

                                                            I would highly recommend this cottage. It has everything you need and more. We had a wonderful time and the surprise extras fresh eggs & bread and scrumptious homemade lemon drizzle cake , bread & jam were an added bonus. Would definitely stay again.

                                                            I stayed here with 13 ladies for my 30th birthday and it was amazing. We were met by Tracey who showed us around the house and gave us info on working the hot tub etc and then left us to it. The house has absolutely everything you could possibly need and more. We didn't use the games room but it would be fab for a group with kids. It's got a pub near by and walks around the area. Totally recommend for a weekend away!!

                                                            We stayed here for 2 nights, 10 ladies aged from 21 to 60, and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. It was so clean, modern and plenty of space for everyone, very luxury and homely! The owners live next door and was so helpful, we were shown around on arrival, how to work the hot tub and pool area, there was a dressing gown for everyone and towels provided. On the second night the owner was happy to call round to help us to set up the karaoke, and ended up bringing his own tele round for us! And didn't mind the noise! There is a massive garden with a small park area and trampoline for children, a B&q area but unfortunately it was snowing for us! The landlady was happy to arrange for a beautician to come round to do treatments, unfortunately she was already booked up that weekend so if you would like this then I would suggest to book in advance. All in all a perfect weekend!! :-)
