“Fantastic accommodation”

Everything you need is there with high quality fixture and fittings. Gave me a few decoration ideas. Stanhope is a lovely place with plenty of walks nearby. Go and get some bath salts from the shop by the bug behind the Dales center. Such a helpful lady. Lots of day trips accessible and overall a really good place to chill. Can see us returning.

“Absolutely gorgeous property, exactly like the photos and if anything bigger than we thought it would be.”

Really well equipped and comfortable for 4 of us plus our dog. Great location for visiting Durham and Northumbria, wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

“Really nice accommodation, perfect for me and my dog to come away and chill out for the weekend.”

The property is fun and quirky and the hot tub is great to have. The quirky heating share with the upstairs property and being unable to turn off some radiators meant it was a little uncomfortable and stuffy to come back to. I would come back to Stanhope castle for sure but may consider one of the other properties... and already recommended to others

“We went as 2 couples, one of which with a 4-year-old, and honestly could not have expected any better.”

The accommodation itself was stunning as well as the grounds it was set in and the little lad never found himself bored with the playpark on the back garden! Along with that the village itself, Stanhope, was a beautiful little village with absolutely everything you would need right on your doorstep. Quite literally a perfect trip away and one we’ll 100% do again.

“Had a lovely holiday, all staff friendly and helpful.”

Extremely clean and comfortable. Loved the garden the Grandkids enjoyed all the open space, everything you would need in the accommodation and in Stanhope close by. Will return.
