The Snuggery description


Nestled away behind the quaint village green of Staindrop and facing Langley Beck, this semi-detached, single-storey holiday cottage is ideal for couples wanting to get away from it all, relax and spoil themselves in a well-furnished cottage that is packed with charm, character and original features. The comfortable living room boasts an original stone floor and a gas woodburner-style fire that heats up quickly and gives character and warmth to the room. There is also a small courtyard to the rear of the property which looks out on to the beck and borders the Raby Castle estate. Famous for its history, architecture and fabulous garden and grounds, Raby Castle is only a short walk away from The Snuggery and really is worth a visit for guests of all ages, if only to catch a glimpse of over 200 deer which wander the grounds. Staindrop is set in a dedicated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is home to a wonderful mix of glorious countryside, stunning views, historic towns and villages, as well as High Force, England’s highest waterfall. Perfect for walkers, Staindrop is the ideal base from which to explore the many and varied faces of the county, starting with the network of public footpaths that run in and around the village. A coffee shop/bistro, tea room, shop, local family butcher, pub and post office serve the everyday needs of residents and visitors alike. Only five miles away is the thriving market town of Barnard Castle which offers a weekly market and more local pubs, shops and restaurants to enjoy. The cathedral city of Durham is a mere 30-minute drive away and is perfect for a romantic boat ride along the River Wear, a meal out in one of the many bistros and restaurants, some boutique shopping or the opportunity to visit the famous cathedral and Durham Castle, both of which are steeped in history and tradition. Beamish, the living museum of the north, is a must-see attraction for all visitors to the area while the Metrocentre and Newcastle upon Tyne can be reached in just over an hour’s drive. For guests wanting to explore even more of what the northern counties have to offer, Cumbria (and the Lake District), the Yorkshire Dales, the North Pennines and Northumberland are all within a 2-hour drive away.
