The Hen House is a real jewel of a property and absolutely ideal for a quiet romantic break within walking distance of Durham city centre.

The Hen House (UKC1742) and The Stables (UKC1743) are quietly nestled away in the village of Brandon, just a little over 2 miles from the heart of the city of Durham and hidden away behind the owner’s home. They offer the most fabulous location for guests wishing to explore and enjoy the immediate area and beyond. The Stables is next door to the Hen House and is the ideal cottage for small families and couples. On the ground floor guests will find an open plan living space with a cosy wood burner and fabulous views through the French doors. Right next door, but still private from each other, guests will find The Hen House. All on one level, compact and cosy, this little gem manages to pack everything in to a small amount of space, perfect for an Easter break, summer holiday or winter getaway. The Stables and The Hen House are both warm, welcoming and the ideal places to stay at any time of year.
