  • "Just spent a week at this fantastic barn conversion."

    The location Is amazing just a few miles from the Ullswater. Arrived to find the place really clean throughout, there is plenty of room for parking and a lovely stream along the driveway. Every kitchen utensil I needed was there and in immaculate condition. Having the pub a 2 min walk from the property was really convenient especially after a going on long walks, to be able to have our evening meal (highly recommend). The bedroom and bathroom downstairs was very well thought out with easy access especially as my parents have mobility issues. The complimentary champagne and chocolates were thoroughly enjoyed by the cosy fireplace, together with the board games for the kids. Will definitely be returning soon.

  • "The cottage is brill and well located."

    Cleanliness was patchy - ok at eye level but cobwebs above. Oven needs a good clean. Carbon monoxide alarm went off twice on 2 occasions at night. Reported it to Heart of the Lakes but no-one came to check it which could have been potentially dangerous.

  • "Large roomy house in a good location but very disappointed as just not clean enough and lacking some basic TLC ."

    We decided to clean it ourselves to a point we were comfortable with as did not want the disruption of cleaners coming back . We did however ring Sykes cottages to lodge our displeasure who hopefully told the owners their cleaners are doing a poor job. Having said that we had a great week, the house has got great potential but needs a deep clean and a little more thoughtfulness. Felt we left it in a far better state than we found it .

    Thank you for taking the time to feedback after your stay at Waltons Close. We are extremely sorry the cleanliness was poor. We have been struggling to find a new cleaning management company in the area to take over the property cleaning and management and we have now successfully managed this. It has been a real struggle in the area due to the high amount of tourists and staff shortages. We are sorry that you had to experience this and we hope that you still had a great week in the lakes.

  • "This was a last minute booking as the accommodations we originally had booked was cancelled 24 hours before we were due to travel due to Covid so we were very pleased to find this accommodation at short notice."

    The cottage is very nice and in a good location. Nice local pub less than a minute walk away. Lovely little village market stall just opposite the pub on a Saturday morning selling fresh bread etc. We were a party of 7 and there is plenty of space to accommodate several families such as ours. Kitchen facilities were plentiful. Our only criticism we have is the place could have been cleaner, there were lots of cobwebs and the sills and staircase banisters didn’t appear to have been cleaned in a while. There was a problem with flies, particularly in the kitchen which was a nuisance when try to prepare food. We appreciate this problem has tried to be addressed with a plug in electric fly machine and fly spray was readily available in the cupboard under the sink so obviously the owners are aware of the problem. We were not sure how the flies were getting in as we deliberately tried to keep the door closed whilst we were preparing/cooking food. Overall we enjoyed our stay.

  • "This house was in a lovely location in a beautiful little village, with two very good pubs within 5 minutes."

    Upon first arriving at the house, it was clear there was a fly problem. Also, the fridge was very smelly (I had to clean this before we put anything in it), there was a pile of post for the owner that no-one had passed on; the kitchen floor was filthy; everything felt like it could do with a good dusting; the instructions regarding use of bins was out of date and the outdoor bin was already full of rubbish - on top of that the membership card for the leisure centre was not where the instructions had said. We felt that there were a couple of essential items missing from the kitchen - pint glasses; flutes, and replacement oven trays required! I had to call Heart of the Lakes with a couple of the issues whilst we were away, some of which were resolved. This didn’t deter us from enjoying our holidays at all, and despite these, the house was very spacious, with comfortable bedrooms and a cosy little snug lounge.

  • "The house and location were perfect."

    The house was spacious and comfortable and is clearly looked after. The spa access was an added bonus which we really enjoyed. We had a fantastic holiday! The internet was very unreliable. The flies were quite hard to manage but we could see that there were things put in place to try and help this.

About the location


Barnard Castle 1 mile. Copley 4 miles

Stainton is a small village just one mile from the market town of Barnard Castle and 4 miles from the village of Copley located in the unspoilt countryside of Teesdale, in County Durham. Consisting of a small group of traditional cottages and boasting lovely views of the surrounding Dales countryside, Stainton is a great rural base for this part of the northern Dales. Barnard Castle stands on the site of an ancient Roman ford which crosses the river. The medieval ruins of the castle still tower over the river and are well worth a visit. Known affectionately as 'Barney' by residents and visitors alike, the town boasts cobbled streets, yards and back lanes which were first laid out in the 12th century. Beautiful walking country is right on the doorstep with The Pennine and Teesdale Ways, the River Tees and magnificent waterfalls at High Force are all within easy reach.
