Durham no doubt springs to mind when you’re looking for a northern escape. This beautiful city and the surrounding areas truly do have it all – historic buildings, areas of outstanding natural beauty, great food and drink, and a host of activities to keep the children and family entertained for days and weeks even. Durham is also a hub for business travellers who need that home-away-from-home environment, especially if work demands long stretches in the area. We’ve added a few more reasons below to book a holiday cottage near Durham.
Close to Natural Beauty
County Durham is one of the most stunning counties in the UK – we do love the area so! This is a county blessed with both history, including an impressive cathedral, churches, and antique buildings galore, but also it’s brimming with natural beauty. This includes one of England’s most beautiful waterfalls, known as High Force, the heart-stopping landscape of the North Pennines, the Durham Dales, and the heritage coastline walks. Additionally, there are unique market towns, cosy country pubs, and other rural retreats. Perfect for rambling about the countryside exploring.
Holiday Cottages Have It All
If you’re wondering why to choose a holiday cottage over a Hotel or guest house, consider what you want from your vacation. If you are looking to get out and explore, being locked into hotel meal times may not be a suitable option for you. Perhaps a space with its own living room, kitchen, and private parking are far better – especially if you have children and pets in tow. Holiday Cottages can provide the privacy and amenities of a home-away-from-home, allowing you to feel comfortable and content.
Enjoy Everything You Need Onsite
Great accommodation will offer everything you have at home, all at your fingertips. Think a personal-use washing machine, oven, central heating, and every detail down to plates, cups, cutlery, and even a microwave. Preferably there would be a weekly cleaning service to keep your accommodation sparkling. There should also be space to play, sit outside and enjoy, and even play ball games with the children. There ought to be ample online parking to ensure getting the family and fur babies in and out of the car is easy and straightforward. And there should also certainly be an onsite administration or office to help out if you find yourself in any pickles during your stay. Be sure that your chosen holiday cottage offers all of this before booking.
