Delightful Self Catering Holiday Cottages in a Peaceful and Rural Setting

Merrington Grange Cottages are available for business and leisure at Merrington Grange, Near Rushyford, County Durham. Both cottages have been sympathetically converted from redundant farm buildings, to produce two very attractive, fully equipped properties that are ideal for a comfortable and relaxed stay.

Located near to Durham city, the delightful Garth and Meadow Holiday Cottages offer an abundance of space and luxurious comfort. These cottages are also located in highly peaceful surroundings, while being close enough to the A1 motorway to allow for easy travel.

The beams have been retained in both cottages and achieve a rustic charm, while the addition of the arched windows give a rural feel. Both cottages offer en-suite facilities and a fully equipped kitchen. The south-facing patios also come complete with garden furniture and allow for glorious views of the Cleveland hills. We are ideally situated for a quiet and relaxing break or holiday away from the busyness of life.

We are located in County Durham between Bishop Auckland and Newton Aycliffe, only 8 miles from the City Centre of Durham. We are close to local attractions such as Auckland Castle, 'Kynren- an epic tale of England', Durham Castle and Cathedral, Beamish Museum, Bowes Museum in Barnard Castle, Newcastle, Weardale and the Durham Coast. The Yorkshire Dales, High Force and Teesdale are also well worth a visit.
