Ken's Cottage description

Ken’s Cottage, located in Frosterley, is just off the village green away from the main road and commands beautiful views across the valley to the fells and the local landmark, the Elephant Trees. Frosterley is located on the River Wear in Weardale, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offering stunning scenery in the North Pennines in beautiful County Durham.
Warm, comfortable and charming, this traditional cottage offers a comfortable retreat in a beautiful area. Relax with a book in front of an open fire, dine al fresco or enjoy time in the solar dome in the garden in this welcoming home from home.
The property provides the perfect accommodation for active families or for couples looking for a romantic break. Families and couples are both well-catered for.
The area offers well-established walking and cycling routes, and Stanhope open air heated swimming pool is open May to September. Hamsterley Forest is a short drive away. Fishing may also be available locally. The village itself offers two good pubs, one of which has an excellent restaurant. There is also a shop, post office and fish and chip shop. The popular tourist destination of Stanhope is only 3 miles west and Wolsingham, 3 miles east, both offering a good variety of shops, cafés and pubs. The Polar Express runs between Wolsingham and Stanhope in November and December, a must if you have young children. The cottage is an ideal base for travelling around the area with Northumberland, the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District making excellent day trips. The magnificent cathedral and castle at Durham, Bowes Museum, Raby Castle and High Force Waterfall are all within an hour’s drive, as are the historic market towns of Hexham, Bishop Auckland and Barnard Castle. Shop 1/4 mile, pub and restaurant 1/2 mile.
