Garden Cottage is located in Gilesgate in the city of Durham in the North East, just a short walk from the city centre.
There is a truly memorable scenic walk from Gilesgate into the city centre which takes you past the best view point in Durham. This amazing viewpoint is less than a mile from the property and from here, you’ll be able to see numerous iconic landmarks and attractions including Durham Cathedral, Durham Castle, the Bandstand, the River Wear, and Durham Viaduct. The walk is also wonderful for enjoying a variety of wildlife including otters, squirrels and kingfishers.
Named ‘One of the Best Cities in the World to Visit in 2020’ by The Independent and voted ‘The Best City in the UK’ by Condé Nast’s traveller magazine readers, the beautiful city is packed with history and charm.
It has the perfect blend of mediaeval heritage and a modern, vibrant feel. The cobbled streets are peppered with restaurants, bars, pubs and shops. Take a leisurely stroll near the River Wear which continues on past Durham Cathedral and the 900 year old Durham Castle.
Durham Cathedral is an outstanding building originally constructed between 1093 and 1133. The Norman architecture is especially important as it is now the oldest surviving building with a stone vaulted ceiling of such a large scale. You can climb the Tower’s 325 steps for incredible views of the city and countryside. If you’re a fan of Harry Potter, head to the Chapter House where they filmed one of the Hogwarts classrooms.
