Lazuli description

Situated just a couple of miles away from the popular town of Bishop Auckland in the small village of High Etherley, this detached property is the perfect location for family get-togethers, holidays with friends, golfing holidays or a touring base for County Durham. It is the gateway to Weardale and Teesdale. Bishop Auckland, with its own Prince Bishop’s Castle, has 15 golf courses within 15 miles.

Lazuli is perfect for families wanting to visit the Kynren Spectacular between the months of July and September 2016; it is the perfect base. Only a few minutes’ drive away from Bishop Auckland, guests will find themselves on the doorstep of this magical event hosted by Eleven Arches. Taking place over 7½ acres of beautiful County Durham, Kynren is billed as ‘an epic tale of England’. This historical extravaganza has a cast of over 1000 people and promises 14 action packed and movie-like performances of colossal and dazzling proportions. The sheer scale of the production should make this a true spectacle at any time of year, with shows incorporating a full size lake with breathtaking pyrotechnics, fabulous lighting and stunning water effects.

Just 3 miles away is Hamsterley Forest; a delightful 2000-hectare site of several popular walking trails including the Gruffalo Trail, cycle paths and orienteering, with plenty of picnic spots along the way. Walkers and hikers will be spoilt for choice as County Durham, with the Weardale and Teesdale moors and valleys, is criss-crossed with designated walking paths and tracks. Escomb, 2 miles away, boasts the oldest complete Saxon Church in England. Witton-le-Wear, 2 miles away, has a fine castle with fly fishing in the beautiful grounds. Just 3 miles away is Locomotion; the National Railway Museum in Shildon, which makes up a large proportion of the biggest railway museum in the world. Raby Castle, 6 miles away, is a must-see for those who wish to catch a glimpse of the free-wandering deer herds that number around 200 Red and Fallow deer. The castle and grounds are open to the public and host many events throughout the year. Continue 4 miles to Barnard Castle, a thriving market town which holds a weekly farmers’ market and has super pubs, restaurants and shops. Pay a visit to Durham city, 12 miles away, an ancient cathedral city with a castle, a world-renowned university and a buzzing atmosphere thanks to its resident student population, along with a number of events during the year including the Lumiere Festival, Jazz Festival, Book week and Arts week. There is also a great theatre and many designer boutiques and shops. Shop 1 mile, pub and restaurant 500 yards.
