Area Information - Rohan Cottage is situated a short drive from the village of Lanchester a popular and thriving commuter village set amidst beautiful countryside of mainly pasture and woodland and a short distance from the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Smallhope Burn, a tributary of the River Browney, runs through the Lanchester Valley. The local economy was mainly based on agriculture and the grandeur of its Church indicates that this has been an important religious centre since the Norman times. The old railway line, now known as the Lanchester Valley Walk, runs between Consett and Durham where it links at each end with a further network of other disused railways and tracks for walking and cycling. At the Consett end the footpath links to the C2C cycle route, an award-winning national cycle route stretching from Whitehaven and Workington in the north west of England to Sunderland and Tynemouth in the north east.

The traditional village offers a wide range of everyday amenities including a range of shops, small supermarket, farm shop, bank, pharmacy, post office, a selection of eateries and pubs, an active community centre and churches. The village green is frequently used for community events. Nearby Tow Law and Bishop Auckland offers additional shopping and recreational services while the historic cathedral city of Durham, which is very accessible, provides comprehensive professional, cultural, educational and recreational facilities. For schooling Lanchester offers primary and senior schools. There are also excellent private schools available nearby in Durham and Newcastle.

For the commuter, Lanchester is ideally placed for access to the major centres of the north east. The A68 provides access both north and south linking to both the motorway network and to the A69 for quick connection to Newcastle in the east and Carlisle in the west. The A691 offers quick access to Durham and Consett. The Gateshead Metro Centre, Newcastle International Airport, Newcastle and Durham Rail Stations are all extremely accessible, providing excellent transport links.
