With glorious rural scenery, this beautifully renovated and imaginatively converted former byre and hemmel is located in a beautiful spot on a working farm just a few miles from the historic city of Durham. Offering far-reaching country views, this stone-built, single-level retreat makes a wonderful holiday escape for families enjoying a tranquil hideaway, or for groups of friends enjoying a long-awaited reunion. The property offers cosy accommodation for up to eight guests across four pretty bedrooms and has a wealth of features including exposed wooden beams, a vaulted ceiling, underfloor heating, a welcoming wood burner and a soothing wood-fired hot tub.
This tranquil and secluded property comprises two separate buildings – the main byre and a sweet hemmel annexe. Stepping inside the byre, you will find the beautifully presented open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Featuring timber beams in the high vaulted ceiling, this spacious room is the heart of the property and makes a great space for everyone to get together, relax and chat. The cheery lounge surrounds the wood burner, and has a Smart TV and scenic views out through the French doors. The central dining table provides a sociable space to get together to mark a special occasion or simply enjoy a hearty family meal which you can rustle up in the generously equipped and stylishly designed kitchen. The main byre has the first two of the property’s four delightful bedrooms: a charming king-size room and a pretty twin, alongside a relaxing family bathroom. The two remaining bedrooms are to be found in the separate hemmel annexe: a lovely king-size room and a cosy twin room. The annexe also provides its own invigorating shower room. Stepping outside, the large patio area has an outdoor table and chairs, providing a lovely spot for you to dine alfresco and take in the far-reaching views. There’s also a soothing wood-fired hot tub for you to rest in after a long day exploring this unforgettable region.
