Tucked away in County Durham’s beautiful countryside near the banks of Hurworth Burn reservoir, this stylish lodge is perfect for a romantic escape. Snuggle up in front of the suspended log burner while enjoying the view or enjoy a relaxing soak from the hot tub out on the deck. This is a beautiful spot to slow down the pace and reconnect with nature. Head out into the countryside right from the front door and enjoy long walks through the woods and fields or along historic railway paths. Go for a stroll down to the water and you might spot one of the Common Sandpipers the lodge has been named after or sit out late into the evening watching the sunset over the water.
Step inside and you’ll find a beautifully furnished interior that immediately invites you to relax and unwind. Big windows with views down to the reservoir and the open-plan layout create a sense of space and flood the interior with natural light. A big comfy sofa is set in front of the stylish suspended log burner where you can put your feet up and enjoy the scenery. To one side you’ll find a fully-equipped kitchen and you can choose between eating at the dining table or taking your meals out onto the deck. On sunny days, sliding doors can be opened to extend your living space outside or you can hunker down on chilly evenings with the underfloor heating keeping you toasty.
In the bedroom, you’ll find a luxurious super-king size bed with crisp, white bedding and decorated in soothing, natural tones. Enjoy a cup of tea in bed in the morning and open the curtains so you can enjoy the view through the full length windows. The ensuite bathroom has a contemporary rainfall shower along with a stylish double sink. Complimentary toiletries will be waiting for you and towels for the bathroom and the hot tub are provided.
If you can tear yourself away from your cosy hideaway, there’s plenty to do and see in the area. There are ancient woodlands, wetlands and rolling fields nearby, meaning you’ll find a diverse range of flora and fauna if you head out for a walk. Pack a picnic and explore the countryside around the reservoir where you’ll find plenty of opportunities for birdwatching. The lodge is also a short drive from the Durham Heritage Coast if you fancy a change of scene, or you can head further inland and explore villages like Hurworth-on-Tees or the bustling market town of Darlington. The North Pennines Area of National Beauty is a little further afield but well worth the trip for a walk amongst stunning valleys and beautiful waterfalls.
