Garth Cottage is a superb two-bedroom (both ensuite) cottage on one level and boasts a very picturesque and serene location. Garth Cottage provides spacious accommodation and is family and dog friendly. The beamed lounge area is very spacious and allows for glorious views of the Cleveland Hills. The kitchen/dining area is also light and airy and equipped to a very high standard with everything you need for a 'home away from home'. Arched windows and doors lead onto a pretty south-facing patio, complete with garden furniture, barbecue and large secure lawned garden. The views of the surrounding countryside from the garden are stunning and it gets all of the sun during the day. There is a king size bedroom with an en-suite bathroom (complete with a corner bath) and a twin-bedded room with an en-suite shower.
Located near to Durham City, the delightful Garth Cottage offers an abundance of space and luxurious comfort. The cottage is located in highly peaceful surroundings, while being close enough to the A1 motorway to allow for easy travel.
For those who wish to explore the North of England, we are in a central location to reach many famous attractions including Durham City, Kynren, Beamish Museum, Durham County Cricket Ground, Metrocentre, Universities, walking in Weardale, the Northumberland Coast and the Lake District. Durham and Auckland castles are within easy reach of Merrington, along with Low Barns Nature Reserve, which is considered one of Durham Wildlife Trust’s premier reserves. Weardale is at the heart of the Durham Dales. It is the perfect location for getting outdoors and going walking or cycling and there are many exhibitions, festivals and events throughout the year. And you can also find an excellent selection of country pubs and quality restaurants in the area.
