This beautiful cottage really does feel like a home from home. Step into the living room, which has been tastefully decorated and cosy up in front of the mutifuel stove set in a stone fireplace.

Peaceful and relaxing holiday in Weardale

Wow, what a fabulous holiday! We had such a great time exploring the area around Weardale, and Plumbum Cottage was a fantastic base from which to do so. The cottage is lovely, clean and cosy, and has a fantastic pub (the Blue Bell) just a few minutes walk away. St Johns Chapel is a peaceful, friendly village, the local store is well stocked with everything you need, and there are loads of walks you can do from the front door. We can't wait to return!

Simply lovely

Plumbum cottage is a beautiful cottage in a fabulous location. It is superbly presented and is great testimony to the owners. Very comfortable and cosy with everything that you can ask for. Placed at the end of the village it’s a 5 minute stroll to the centre where the two village pubs are located. The location offers the opportunity to enjoy the countryside and you will not be disappointed. Thank you Mike and Tracey the Shearer boots top it off nicely and we can’t wait to go back.
