The staff at the black horse pub were very helpful & even helped us bring dinner down to the cottage on a couple of occasions. The place could however do...

Additional amenities & feature info
The open plan kitchen and living area with vaulted ceiling is a lovely space to get together, we have a gas burner in the lounge with room to get cosy and enjoy a book or movie, perfect for autumn/winter breaks. The property also has full underfloor heating which can be controlled room by room, and as a recent conversion (July 2011) has all the modern levels of insulation, and effective lighting levels, water heating and includes internet access for those that just can't do without their emails.

The kitchen has all mod cons including double oven range cooker and slow cooker, prepare your dinner then go and enjoy the day and come home to a lovely meal! We hope we've thought of everything you'll need in the kitchen to prepare a sandwich or a gourmet meal for 6, but if you'd...

How to get there
Airport: Newcastle International: 25.0 km
Railway: Durham Train Station: 21.0 km
Ferry: North Shields: 28.0 km
Follow the A1(M) until you reach the turn off for Chester-le-Street. At the roundabout take the road sign-posted A693 for Stanley and the Beamish Museum. Take this road, and head for Stanley. After crossing two roundabouts, you will come across a third, roundabout where the signs for Beamish Museum tell you to turn off to the right - take this turn.

Just in front of the arched entrance to the museum, there is a left turn, which you must take. Keep on this road down into the bottom of the valley, past a high wall on your left and through a very sharp left- hand turn, past the Coppy Lodge on your right, until you arrive at a 'T' junction, with a hump-backed bridge to the left. Turn right at this junction, the road goes up then levels out and then up and levels out again. You will n...
