St John's Chapel 5.4 miles. Beckelshele is situated in a remote location, surrounded by the North Pennines AONB, just outside Lanehead in the heart of Weardale. It is accessed along a single-lane track that meanders across the fells. This charming, reverse-level accommodation is bursting with character, retaining a lot of its original features throughout, with exposed stone walls and wooden beams. The first floor sitting room makes the most of the views across the fells, where you can get cosy on the sofas and unwind into a cool winter's evening by the fire. Take in the peaceful surroundings and fully relax in this secluded location. Entrance is gained straight into the kitchen, which is traditional in style and boasts a lovely open fire, warming those family feasts, which you can prepare with ease. Next you have the bedrooms; the double and twin are equally as inviting after a day exploring the local area, with bedside tables and reading lamps. There is an en-suite shower room serving the double, while you also have a lovely bathroom for you to soothe any aches and pains in the bathtub. On a warm summer's day, you can truly appreciate the remarkable views enveloping the cottage and enjoy an afternoon on the patio with a refreshing drink. Nearby is the village of St. John's Chapel accessed by car, with two friendly pubs and a shop for convenience, while the market of Stanhope boasts many more facilities and is a hub for outdoor activities. Enjoy walks along the tranquil River Wear; visit the famous fossil tree, which is approximately 320 million years old, or the 12th Century church of St Thomas. The surrounding area has many historic attractions, including Raby Castle, Long Meg and Her Daughters, a Bronze Age stone circle near Penrith, and the Acorn Bank Garden and Watermill. You are also within reach of the Lake District and pretty villages of the Yorkshire Dales. This semi-detached, Weardale cottage offers the perfect escape with your loved ones at any time of the year.
