Situated just off the historic village green in West Auckland is Manor View Cottage, a bespoke finished property originally dating back from the 18th Century.

The village of West Auckland is reputed to have one of the largest village greens in the country, lined with 17th and 18th century buildings and is famously the 'Home of the First World Cup', as its football team were the winners of the Sir Thomas Lipton Trophy, one of the first international footballing competitions.

West Auckland is an ideal base for commuting, being within easy reach of the A68 and A1(M) for travel both North and South and for those outdoor enthusiasts the perfect location to explore, Hamsterley Forest, Durham Dales and the Weardale Valley, which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

A range of schools, shopping and recreational facilities can be found in Bishop Auckland, with others available in Barnard Castle and Darlington, both approximately 11 miles away.

A well proportioned Lounge with oak staircase rising to the Mezzanine Bedroom, Kitchen Diner, Rear Hallway and Bathroom.
