The Coach House is hidden away in a quiet village in County Durham yet only a couple of miles from Beamish, 11 miles from Durham, 8 miles from the Metrocentre and 10 miles from Newcastle city centre. This really is a great location for exploring the North East. Families and guests of all ages will love a trip to Beamish, the open air living museum that tells the story of life in the North East in days gone by. A full day out with plenty to see and do, with an ice rink at Christmas, year round entertainment and plenty of places to eat including one of the best fish and chip shops in the North East. The cathedral city of Durham is just a few miles further and is steeped in tradition and history. The famous cathedral and castle dominate the centre of the city along with many restaurants, bistros and cafés along the high street, and overlooking the banks of the river. The university campuses and halls of residence are dotted around the city too, making The Coach House a great location for guests with friends and family who are studying at the university.
To the east, guests will be able to visit some of the beautiful award-winning beaches of the north east coastline, including Whitley Bay and Tynemouth which is famous for its water sports facilities. The Metrocentre is only a 15-minute drive away and is a great place to visit on a rainy day for the perfect shopping experience. The centre of Newcastle for The Sage and the Laing Art Gallery is just a 20-minute drive away. For guests who enjoy concerts and cricket, the Durham County Cricket Ground is based in nearby Chester-le-Street which is around a 10-minute drive from the village. Right on the doorstep, guests who enjoy walking and cycling will find some great footpaths, cyclepaths and walking routes to explore including the very popular Coast to Coast Cycle Route which is literally just minutes from the garden.
