I check the calender daily but this system doesn't always show this. I was born and breed locally, so I know the area reasonably well. The photograph above is me outside of Raby Castle, Co. Durham. I live not far from the cottage and know how easy it is to get around the area from Birtley. I took most of the photographs on this site in 2017 while I was out and about with family.
Anne purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Anne chose Birtley
Only our third year- 2020 Misty Valley Cottage is a Traditional Miner's Cottage in the heart of North East England. It is a cosy terraced cottage, perfect for a couple who want to get away from it all for a long weekend or even longer. It is situated very handily between Durham and the vibrant city of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. It is also a perfect base for exploring the north east and the attractions of Beamish Museum (currently closed), the Roman town of Chester-le-Street, the iconic Angel of the North and the spectacular Northumberland Coastline are all within easy driving distance. For those who want to explore a little further, both Edinburgh and York are possible destinations for a day away. To the west is the incredible Lake District. There is on-street parking on the quiet road directly in front of the cottage. There is also a useful bike shed at the rear of the house for keen cyclists. The cottage has all of the amenities you'll need for an enjoyable and relaxing stay in this most historic part of England.
What makes this Cottage unique
This cottage holds a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence and an additional nine, 5* reviews on their site. As the weather changes, where possible I will have the cottage warmed for your arrival. This cottage has everything you need for a perfect stay in the North East including NETFLIX. It is so easy to find as the street is just off the A167, just off the A1M. The A167 is the main bus route between Newcastle to Durham, which can be every 7 minutes. You can use the Go North East App for live bus times. This part of England has been invaded many times this includes the Romans and later the Vikings. More recently Birtley became home to large number of refuges from Belgium during the Great War, so our local history has been long and varied.
