Make a holiday rental property or house to rent in County Durham your home away from home

County Durham is a truly charming county in the North East of England. The astonishing mix of wild highlands, charming villages, well preserved ancient history and unspoilt coastline make it completely irresistible, and if this is your first time you have considered taking houses for rent in County Durham, it will not be the last.

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.

There are a huge range of days out available from County Durham properties. Sedgefield Racecourse offers a magnificent day of entertainment, and the evenings are a riot of music and fun throughout the county. 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.

Perfect! Couldn’t pick a fault if I tried!

5 of 5
We spent a very relaxing and enjoyable two nights in this beautiful, clean and comfortable accommodation. Couldn’t pick one fault. Julie & John are perfect hosts, nothing is too much trouble and they are only a text or phone call away. The outside area was amazing, decking, plenty seating, fire pit, bbq, lawn, lighting etc. I would highly recommend this place to anyone and definitely will look to return. Kate & Danny

We were met by Stan who was very helpful and accommodating. Loved the log fire we were very cozy. We took our new puppy there was dishes, mats, leads, poo bags and torches provided. The shower was lovely and hot. Kitchen had everything we needed. Bed was very comfortable. We really had a relaxing weekend. Going to book again definitely.
