Accommodation near St John's Chapel, Weardale
« on: March 31, 2009, 08:30:35 pm »
Ideal for the C2C as it's halfway, vaguely useful for LEL helpers, otherwise of interest to people who like bleak scenery, sheep and the biggest hills in England.

The in-laws own it (my wife has a 1/4 share, technically) and are willing to let it for weekends or full weeks.  The pros:

Very quiet, in a solitary terrace of cottages 1/4 way up a mountain
4 beds (two bedrooms and a sofa bed in the lounge)
Decent (small) kitchen
Co-Op in St John's Chapel - easily bikeable or (less easily) walkable
Near the River Wear, great views
Bathroom with shower, extra WC and basin upstairs
Wood/coal-burning stove and electric storage heaters
Good pub a very short walk away

Cons:

No mains water - it has running water, but it's from a spring and you should buy bottled water to drink
Parking is first come, first served although we've never had a problem
It's on a 1 in 5 hill (but the parking is flat)
The top bedroom, with two single beds, is up a ladder

Contact me if interested - my f-i-l is looking for about £300/week in high season in view of the location and the need to get water in (there's always some there, but you need to replace what you've used).
