A beautifully furnished 18th century cottage, complete with large enclosed garden and games room, ideal for families or friends celebrating a special occasion.

Set in the heart of the ‘picture-postcard’ Anglo Saxon village of Witton-le-Wear - steeped in history with its 12th-century tower, Norman church and views of the 15th-century Witton Castle, where fishing is available on their beautiful lakes. This attractive large house (built circa 1780) provides spacious living accommodation for families and/or friends to get together or to celebrate a special occasion. Adjoining another property, Arrow Cottage has lovely gardens together with river walks and the renowned Low barns Nature reserve nearby where visitors can relax and unwind, making this a tranquil and peaceful holiday retreat.

Arrow Cottage is a 5 bedroomed family cottage, with rooms set out to cater for family groups of 10 adults, 5 children and/or 2 babies/toddlers or combinations thereof to a maximum of 17. Perfectly located to explore this magnificent Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - starting in the quiet picturesque village, which has two good real ale pubs on hand. The Wear Valley area is noted for its outstanding natural beauty and diversity of wildlife together with beautiful breathtaking scenery, peppered with small villages bustling with hospitality for locals and visitors alike. Hamsterley Forest, with its pathways, cycleways, bridleways and numerous sporting and leisure activities, lies 4 miles to the west.
