About the neighbourhood
Set within its own grounds in the heart of the village of Frosterley is this exceptionally spacious property which was formally the village school. It is surrounded by unspoilt countryside and is set in a haven of peace and tranquility. The pretty village of Frosterley has a local Coop, fish and chip/pizza shop, recreation ground and two local pubs, The Black Bull and The Frosterley Inn, both serving food and are sure to give you a friendly welcome. Frosterley is located in Weardale, a dale which is very popular to both walkers and cyclists as there are loads of routes which lead you arround this fabulous area and its amazing scenery. It also has a part of the ever popular coast to coast cycle route running through it. The dale is also well located for the ample local golf courses.
