Woodland is also the perfect location for your touring holiday base. All within easy travelling distance are Durham City with it`s magnificent cathedral and castle, Hadrians wall, The Northumberland National Park, The Yorkshire Dales National Park, The Lake District, The Northumberland Coast and The North Yorkshire Moors and Coast.
Woodland village is a small community perched high on the slopes of the lower Teesdale valley on the edge of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Lying between the Yorkshire Dales and the Northumberland National Park the Durham Dales of Teesdale and Weardale offer some of the country`s finest scenery - a blend of rugged upland, impressive waterfalls, gentle river valleys, wildflower meadows and drystone walls.
Woodland offers a good base for exploring the area and there is plenty of scope for walking and other outdoor activities, which can all be enjoyed amidst the impressive North Pennine scenery.
Less well known than other regions the area is surprisingly unspoilt and uncrowded, even at peak holiday periods.
Nearby Hamsterley Forest is an ideal base for walkers, cyclists and bird watchers. The 5000 acre forest has miles of footpaths and a purpose built mountain bike track only a mile from the cottage
