We would highly recommend a visit to the UK's largest open-air live show 'Kyren'. Situated only 9 miles from Angate Cottage 'Kynren an epic tale of England' was launched by Eleven Arches in 2016.
The first season saw more than 100,000 ticketholders visit Kynren at Bishop Auckland in County Durham to experience 2,000 years of British history, myth and legend.
An action-packed blockbuster performed live by a cast of more than 500, Kynren is a fast-paced production with an original script, amazing special effects, water geysers, video projections, fireworks, magnificent sets and an evocative original sound-track which you will experience in surround-sound movie-like quality.
Visit Kynren website to book tickets.
Please treat the cottage with respect and leave it as you found it.
Smoking permitted in the outdoor patio area only.
Please refrain from allowing pets on the sofas/ beds.
I live with my partner Kevin and our two daughters Meghan (21) and Emily (15) in a small market town in County Durham, North East England.
I enjoy keeping fit and amateur dramatics. My daughters are both guitarists and Meghan has been gigging since she was 14. Kevin is an amateur archeologist spending most of his weekend out with his metal detector on the fields.
Our period cottage is located in the heart of Wolsingham and we look forward to welcoming guests to enjoy the beauty and tranquilty of Weardale.
