Owner purchased this House in 1990
Why Owner chose Consett
Isabella house is situated in a semi rural village with 2 great Pub/restaurants within walking distance of the house. We have beautiful views from the house with a large enclosed and very private garden. Great for those who like to walk and cycle, but you can access all the local attractions very quickly giving you the best of both worlds.
What makes this House unique
Rural location in a small village, the accommodation is very large with open plan living. great views from the house and easy access to the local attractions.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Spacious, well equipped house in an ideal location to explore the surrounding area.
Perfect place to stay
Great location, and plenty of inside and outside space. We found the property without any problems and there was easy off street parking. This house was within 1 hour drive for all attractions we wanted to visit.
As others have said, this is a beautiful old house and there is no sneaking to the loo in the night due to the very loud squeaking floor boards but as we didn’t have any children with us this didn’t affect our stay.
The kitchen is stocked with all the crockery, cutlery, glassware and pans you could possibly need together with a dishwasher, washer and dryer. Just a small note to anyone who is unsteady in their feet the dishwasher is not in the kitchen and you need to carry the pots down two uneaven steps, but it is easy enough to wash the pots by hand so not a big deal.
The only very very small annoyance was that there are no shelves in or around the showers for your soap, shampoo etc, but again this is such a small point.
We hope to return to the area next year and would book this property again without hesitation.
Lovely large house in a central location for tourists
We had a lovely time at Isabella House. A very central location for all the areas we wanted to visit. The house was fully equipped and very spacious. The noise of the floorboards took some getting used to both upstairs and down, but didn't affect our enjoyment of the property.
Perfect house for our stay
Wonderful property for our party of 6 adults and 4 children, everyone had space and the children were never under the adults feet, pity we could not use the garden as the weather wasn’t very kind to us during our stay, but as we went out most days that was not a problem. Had everything in the house that anybody would ever need and more besides, just cannot get over how spacious this house was for us, anyone booking this house will not be disappointed.
Great location to explore Durham
The house is in an excellent location to explore the area. It’s well presented and lots of space for our group to enjoy our week.
With linen and towels all provided and well presented it was excellent, warm and lots of hot water when needed. Areas that could be improved on, the flooring is creaky a couple of chairs are not the most comfortable and for me the beds were very soft, not the best for my back.
This does not take away from the the good stuff, including the amount of pans and utensils and stuff available for use in the kitchen, we made cakes with the children and had pans and cooking racks which was excellent.
Thanks for our stay, highly recommended.
Great house great location
I rented Isabella house for a week to be with family in the area. It was very conveniently located to Durham, Newcastle with the enjoyment of the country.
The house was the right size for 5 adults 3 bathrooms was very functional.
The owners were in contact checking we were settled in and no issues.
Kitchen was fully stocked with dishes silverware etc. having laundry was really useful.
Had a great stay - wifi included and cable tv we had a really nice experience and it was setup so the house alarm armed and disarmed with the front door.
I would love to rent this house again when I visit my family again.
I'm from the US so my focus was convenience and functionality.
Supermarkets town center was about a 10 minute drive...a lot of convenience with the location.
The house decor was nice and it was all setup as a home from home. The conservatory was a favorite room for my family. Operating thermostats laundry was clearly explained in a handbook. The manager of the property is a lovely lady, the neighbors are quiet and friendly. All in all a great find and I'd recommend this property even if its a bit further than you are looking for - it's hard to find such a nice large home that's well managed and taken care of.
Dear Sadhana, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Isabella house and thank you for writing such a lovely and helpful review.
