Grace's Retreat

A boutique barn conversion in the heart of Teesdale

Open plan living and dining

Beautiful bedroom

Superb location


The cottage can be found on the edge of the picturesque village of Hurworth on Tees, set high above the river Tees within easy walking distance of Hurworth and Neasham, two beautiful places. The cottage is pet friendly and all visitors receive a free welcome pack from the owners, John and Anji. 


The cottage itself is in an idyllic spot, but there is easy access to delightful places like the AONB of the North Pennines and the North York Moors. The pretty market towns of Northallerton, Yarm and Stokesley are close by, with Darlington and its mainline rail connections even nearer. You can walk locally along the Tees, take in the footpaths of Neasham, Hurworth Moor and cross the county boundary at Croft, with a beautiful riverside amble. The village of Hurworth is steeped in history and the architectural delights of the houses clustered around the green and church are a sight to behold at any time of year. The village suffered from the Plague in 1665 too and this is marked in the village, when 75 of the 750 inhabitants survived. 


The cottage is close to dog friendly pubs in Neasham and Hurworth (The Fox and Hounds and the Emerson Arms). The Bay Horse and Otter and Fish have carved out reputations for fine dining. Rockliffe Hall is also a short drive, or gentle walk away towards Hurworth Place. Darlington has a wide choice of dining experiences too, with Durham and Newcastle being under an hour away by car (and less by train).

Just 25 miles from Durham city centre
- a Celtic "hill fort island"

Durham is a historic city and the county town of County Durham in North East England. The city lies on the River Wear, to the west of Sunderland, south of Newcastle upon Tyne and to the north of Darlington. Founded over the final resting place of St Cuthbert, its Norman cathedral became a centre of pilgrimage in medieval England. The cathedral and adjacent 11th-century castle were designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1986. The castle has been the home of Durham University since 1832.
