Bramble Cottage description

Bramble Cottage is an attractive, end terraced, period property situated in the pleasant village of West Rainton, overlooking the village green. It offers views across open countryside towards Penshaw Monument and the Angel of the North, and is ideally located for exploring the north east counties of Durham, Tyne and Wear and Northumberland. Deceptive from the outside, Bramble Cottage has been thoughtfully restored and decorated to a good standard. The accommodation is light, spacious and airy throughout, yet maintains that cosy cottage appeal.
West Rainton village has a wide range of amenities, including a convenience store, post office, chemist, hairdresser, beauty centre and a sandwich shop. Within walking distance from the cottage there is an Italian restaurant/pub, (2-minute walk), and a gastropub/microbrewery, (15-minute walk), both serving good quality meals. The cities of Durham, Newcastle/Gateshead and Sunderland are easily accessible with excellent road links to all areas, including the magnificent north east coastline and its quaint coastal villages. Perfect for guests who enjoy walking, there are numerous footpaths leading out of the village to the nearby Rainton Meadows Conservation Area, Finchale Abbey, Chester-le-Street and Durham city itself. Listed as a World Heritage Site, Durham’s cathedral, castle and cobbled streets are a ‘must’ to visit with medieval architecture, the Oriental and DLI Museums (displaying artefacts from wars dating back 200 years), Botanic Gardens, Gala Theatre and indoor market, there is something for everyone! The very popular Living Museum of Beamish is only a 15-minute drive away, and an excellent day out for all the family.
The Riverside, a top class county cricket ground hosting international test matches, and home of Durham County Cricket Club, is only a 10-minute drive away, and a local hotel and golf club boasting two 18-hole championship golf courses, is only a 3-minute drive away. Venturing further afield, guests can enjoy day trips to the magnificent Yorkshire Dales and Scottish Borders. Shop and pub 1/2 mile, restaurant 200 yards.
