Self Catering, Ivy Cottage

If you like the idea of being slightly more independent, yet only a stone’s throw (literally!!) from The Durham Ox, Ivy Cottage is an ideal option for you. This three bedroom cottage sleeps up to six guests and is dog friendly.


Beautifully restored period terrace cottage on the main street of the village, two to five minutes walk from The Durham Ox. Perfect base for exploring, with great walks and cycle routes. This fully refurbished traditional cottage combines exposed beams, an original open fire and a modern kitchen with under floor heating, opening out on to the rear deck and garden.

“Pretty much perfect. We arrived tired & full of cold in mid-January, just wanting really to flake out, but the setting, the fabulous Durham Ox up the road & the walks around the village cured us both of our colds & January Blues… A winter rest cure if ever there was one.” Sawdays, 2018
