About Lynne Kirsopp

Hi I'm Lynne,

I live with my partner Peter and son Frankie in Northumberland.

Peter lived in Sherburn Hill, when I met him and I fell in love with the area.

I chose to buy a cottage in the village so we could maintain our links with the area and also give all of you the chance to visit.

Lynne Kirsopp purchased this house in 2017

Why Lynne Kirsopp chose Sherburn Village

My Partner Peter lived in Sherburn village when I met him, I spent most of my time visiting him and I fell in love with the area!

Peter and I loved going for walks with our dogs around the village and spent many a summers evening in Durham city walking around the riverside and stopping off at one of the many cafe bars.

Durham has so much to offer, there are many events throughout the year and so many places to visit.

Old Stone Cottage is the ideal place for visiting Durham and the North east of England.

Absolutely beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Came up from Birmingham to visit family and fed up of the hotel environment so decided to give the rental market a try - won’t be going back to hotels. Beautiful cottage with beautiful facilities. Close by to transport links and easy to get to many local places of beauty.

The welcome pack was a lovely touch when we arrived - cereal biscuits milk to name a few. Plenty of space - there were 5 of us staying and never once did we feel under each other’s feet. Will definitely be back when we come for another visit.

Nice cottage in a good location, suffoekt for a family of 5 including three kids

  • 4 of 5

The property was as described in Homeaway. Overall my family and I liked the property. There was a problem with the boiler as we checked in but the owner was waiting with new heaters and that sorted us out fine. On the last day the owner had to bring in three different companies to check the problem with the boiler and give her quotes. I allowed it (she was kind enough to ask) but didn’t appreciate having to go through that during our stay. Despite that it was a lovely stay and a nice warm home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review Mohammed, I’m glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. I totally understand your frustration allowing me to access the cottage during your stay, I did try and keep the disruption to a minimum by organising them to come within an hours time slot mid day, however I appreciate this was not ideal and ordinarily would never do this, but I found myself in extraordinary circumstances where We had an emergency, the boiler had broken down and required replacing and I had no gaps between guests. So once again I apologise, The boiler has now been replaced so there should be no further issues. 😊 I do hope you and your family will visit us again. Lynne

Lovely comfortable house 2-3 miles from Durham

  • 4 of 5

Lovely clean house, very spacious, with plenty of seating in lounge. Owner very helpful and approachable, the one downside was only four chairs provided for the kitchen table despite house sleeping six. There were however 2 patio chairs in the hall cupboard which we resorted to. Very handy having 2 bathrooms.

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

Great base for visiting family & taking my children around the north east. Really well equipped, spacious cottage, two bathrooms a definite bonus. Central to everything but also a nice family space, my children loved it and every visiting family member was impressed at what a lovely place we had booked. Definitely visiting again. Couldn't be happier to have found this gem!
