Cottages for families and friends in and around Beamish

Many holiday cottages to discover!

If you want to have the best cottage holiday possible in Beamish, we suggest a few key items to take along. Rainproof clothing and a light umbrella should be the first things to pack. The rain only comes when you are not prepared.

If you have a DVD player in the Durham cottage, definitely take a few great movies. It's so enjoyable to curl up in the evening and watch a classic film. Lastly we think turning up with a few things to eat and drink is a good start to your holiday - there's nothing worse than grumpy kids or friends when its time to unpack, and a little chocolate or a cup of coffee can work wonders. We find it really hard to decide which type of cottage we like best. Generally we just enjoy going away! 

Beamish Accomodation

Benefits of staying in a county cottage include being able to jump out of the front door and take part in outdoor pursuits from walking to horse riding, and from fishing to paddling. As we all know, the weather isn't always idyllic - in fact it can be largely unpredictable. 

Although its great to be outside in Beamish, you can often have just as much fun with your friends or family if you stay in and play some games. Some cottages will provide a few books and magazines but you aren't likely to get the latest blockbuster or this month's Vogue. 

Wer're sure you'll come up with a great plan, but it might help to have one in advance. Just in case!

Holiday Cottages

Before you start to research your holiday accommodation, it's worth asking everyone what they are looking for. Are you looking for a quaint old stone cottage in Beamish with an open fire - or something a little more child friendly with nice warm carpets and central heating? 

If you have a dog, you may like to bring him or her to Beamish with you. Many places will accept dogs, but it's always a good idea to double check in advance if it's not mentioned on the booking website. 

Have a great holiday, wherever you stay. Hopefully it will be in a Durham cottage found through us! 

Families, Friends and More

We think that self-catering is the best way to holiday in Beamish. No worrying about getting to the dining room in time, either before the hotel declares that breakfast is over, or trying to fit in with other b and b guests. 

Eat what you want, whenever you want it. And of course that's particularly good if anyone in your party suffers from food allergies or has other dietary requirements. For many people the idea of a Beamish cottage holiday allows them to relax, take long rambling walks and stop off at a country pub for a pint and a ploughman's lunch. 

There's also a growing number of holidaymakers who just want to get really energetic and try new things, including abseiling, rafting, climbing and even potholing.
