Town: Set in the beautiful countryside of County Durham is the village of Lanchester, approximately eight miles to the west of Durham itself. Taking its name from the Roman fort of Longovicium, the site of the current village has been home to a settlement for centuries. Today, the connection with the Romans attracts historians and archaeologists, as does the nearby 'Roman Dere Street'. Now a thriving and substantial village, Lanchester offers a wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants, whilst the surrounding countryside provides exceptional walking trails including the Lanchester Valley Walk which runs the course of a disused railway line from Consett to Durham. Durham City itself is just eight miles away whilst Newcastle is just 20 miles, offering visitors a thriving metropolis full of culture, superb shopping facilities, live music and theatre.
Additional amenities include: high chair, cooker.Read more
Prospect Cottage is a lovely cosy and homely cottage. The village is pretty and has everything you could need with a good bus service to Durham and Newcastle within minutes walk form the cottage.
Eating out was a pleasure in all the restaurants within the village and the portions were huge!!

Loved the size and layout of the cottage. Style successfully achieved with smart decor and furniture. Our teenage children couldn't wait to explore it. Loved the aubergine-colour theme. Really good for family stay - three good-size bedrooms with super kitchen and bathrooms. Owner very helpful and friendly. Any problems quickly sorted. Very pretty double-fronted cottage. Would stay again.
A super cottage!

This cottage was even better than the description! A bedroom and shower room is completely separate form the other 2 bedrooms and bathroom which made it ideal for our newlyweds who were in our group! It was ideally situated, quiet but a walk away from shops and pub serving good food. Yards away were great walks and bicycle trails. The facilities in the cottage were excellent and the owners weree very friendly and helpful but discreet!
Thank you to everyone at Sykes cottages and a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy 2010!
