This lovely Cottage offers spacious, comfortable accommodation all on one level. Situated 2 miles from the historic Cathedral City of Durham, Thimble Cottage is the perfect base to explore a truly beautiful county.
Things to See and Do
Regular buses to Durham are minutes from the front door. Arnison Centre, a three minute drive away, provides a choice of places to eat, food shopping and an abundance of retail therapy for a rainy day.
There's lots to see and do in County Durham. The magnificent world renowned Durham Cathedral and Castle World Heritage Site is on the doorstep and is a must see on any visit to Durham. Go back in time at Beamish Museum to find out what life was like in North East England; at Locomotion, the National Railway Museum at Shildon, learn about the beginnings of the railways; and experience the county's lead mining industry at Killhope in the Durham Dales.
For visitors looking for a more active holiday, you’ll find walking and cycling routes around Durham’s stunning countryside and coastal areas. Explore the Durham Dales and North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – a picture-perfect landscape of moors, hills, valleys and rivers – and home to High Force, one of England’s most impressive waterfalls. Or pack your hiking boots and head to the Durham Coast for dramatic sea views along the coastal footpath.
We are also ideally located for visiting fantastic events like Kynren (June-Sept)....and don't forget the return of Lumiere, the UK's largest light festival, to Durham in November.
Thimble Cottage can be used as a great base for visiting an array of amazing places further afield including places like Hadrian's Wall, Northumberland National Park, the Yorkshire Dales, the Lake District, the east coast and York.
