In a nutshell: Tranquil location, wood burning stove, toddler friendly. By selecting one of these holiday cottages Durham and the beautifully bleak northern Pennines can be discovered. This remote and sparsely populated area of moorland and dales is home to an industrial heritage of lead mines and quarries that will fill you with admiration for the people who worked here in this uncompromising landscape. Whilst not as instantly appealing as, say, the Lakeland fells, the northern Pennines have a brooding quality and great beauty. The vast emptiness is inspiring and will draw you back, time after time.
