Overview

City of Durham Barn Rental Photos and Description

Close to Durham City, secluded position with outstanding views

Converted to a very high standard by the present owner, this spacious barn dates back over one hundred years. Surrounded by glorious open countryside, this barn is detached within a large lawned area, has lots of parking for cars and makes an ideal holiday home for families, sensible groups or a romantic and relaxing break.

The indoor heated swimming pool with large hot tub is attached to the property and has magnificent views over to the Yorkshire Dales.

Catley Hill is ideally positioned to visit a number of great towns and cities being only 9 miles from Durham City, 20 miles from the popular quayside in Newcastle upon Tyne, 10 miles from Hartlepool Marina and Historic Quay and just over an hour from the beautiful Northumberland Coast as it is from the Yorkshire Dales and the North Yorkshire Moors. So whether you wanted to stay at home and relax in our luxurious facilities or take a trip to one of the many interesting and nearby attractions, it is up to you.

NEW FOR 2015 - we are creating a fourth bedroom overlooking the swimming pool. This bedroom will have a king size bed and ensuite facilities as well as a large balcony. Pictures to follow.

This fourth bedroom will be separate from the main accommodation with its own access.

Fantastic place to relax & unwind

  • 5 of 5

A really lovely holiday home with great scenery and plenty of places to go for both adults and children. The house was well equipped, clean and spacious enough for 2 families to share. The children loved it and especially enjoyed playing with the owners dogs - they keep asking when we can go back!

Barbara and Guy were very welcoming and happy to answer any questions or help out if needed.

The house was served by a fair few takeaways in the area which was nice as we didn't have to cook every day. Definitely recommend :)

Luxury accomodation, excellent value

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in the Barn. In fact, although we had loads of day trips planned, we actually spent a good deal of time at the house, swimming and relaxing. The space is tremendous and everything in the home, from the kitchen to the bathrooms, are top quality. The pool was also amazing - extremely warm and really large.

We cannot recommend the Barn enough. Our whole family loved it and it was definitely value for money. We hope to visit again soon!

The Collingwood Girls

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a weekend break at the Barn and cannot reccomend it highly enough. The accomodation was superb with everything that was needed and more. The private pool and hot tub made it feel like being in luxurious spa. This was complemented by the owners arranging for a beautician to visit the property on Sunday where we all had treatments. This really made the weekend very relaxing for us all.

The object of the weekend for the seven of us (all ladies of different ages) was to have a relaxing break and it certainly acheived this and we will definately return.

EXCELLENT

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect home away from home for us. We have been four times and I have no doubt we will be booking again. Area is great, house and grounds are first class and Barbara and Guy ( the owners) are extremely helpful. Have recommened to family and friends who have also been and had a fab time. The swimming pool is fantastic and perfect for playing in or lane swimming.
