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.
Can be booked with Meadow Cottage for groups of 8 - perfect for family get togethers.
Located near to Durham City, in peaceful surroundings, while being close enough to the A1 motorway to allow for easy travel.
