We had a great stay in this boutique style cottage. The furnishings were all of a high standard and importantly the beds were very comfortable. The host, Reagan, was very accommodating and also provided thoughtful extra touches such as milk in the fridge and a home-made cake, which makes the guest feel genuinely welcome. The cottage, although in a rural setting, is well placed for Durham, Beamish Museum and the wider attractions of Northumberland and County Durham. We would certainly not hesitate to book again.
We can't thank Reagan enough for such a nice stay!
The cottage is extremely cosy, two great sized bedrooms and possibly the most comfortable bed we've ever slept in!
Small gestures like some milk in the fridge and a victoria sponge cake made us feel extremely welcome upon our arrival.
The cottage is positioned in a great location with nice walks in the vicinity (remember your wellies!), the beamish museum a short distance away and Durham town only 20 mins away!
We would highly recommend the accommodation, and would definitely stay here again if we return to the area.
Pockerley Cottage, just 5 minutes from Beamish museum is an absolute peach of a find. A bijou decor coupled with the honesty of a farmhouse cottage gives you everything you need for a top quality stay and a petfect position to explore the area. Everything on hand and done to a very high standard, even down to the welcome cake!
Fantastic and great value too!
The location was perfect for our family, taking in the Beamish Museum almost next door, visiting family in Sunderland and attending the Great North Run events throughout the weekend. The Bedrooms are very spacious and the shower provides plenty of hot water for 5no people. Good to have a TV in all rooms. All together a perfect long weekend.
Thoroughly enjoyed a peaceful stay at this charming cottage. Excellent sized bedrooms. Did not have the chance to use the impressive wood burning stove. Well stocked for self catering. Reagan had thoughtfully left a cake and milk, tea and coffee to get us started. Reagan and family are very friendly and accommodating. Would definitely stay again.
