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.

“Quaint and well placed, if cold in some rooms”

Reviewed 1 Jan 2012

A quaint cottage with all the amenities we needed, however as it slept 6 it would have been nice if there was seating for 6 in the living room. The TV was old and made a funny noise. The 3rd bedroom/seating area was VERY cold and some areas smell of damp slightly although the rest of the house was lovely and warm.We had 2 cars and had difficulty turning so as not to reverse out onto a main road. Overall we had a very pleasant stay.
