    Fabulous house, just perfect for our family get together for my milestone birthday. Very comfortable and extremely well equipped and furnished. "The Cook" (my husband) was very impressed with the quality and very comprehensive cooking and dining equipment and facilities. :-D. The whole party really enjoyed the stay and appreciated the wealth of information re local places of interest and also the walking opportunities directly from the village. 5 stars for the information provided to welcome us to the house from owner Susie***** and caretaker Paul***** and a mention for the local pub the Rookhope Inn, thoroughly entertained on the Friday night by the Quiz, and welcome for the " Weekend Blow Ins" (we came third). Also provided a great meal on the Saturday for nine people including 3 vegans. Would highly recommend Prospect House to any large party of family or friends wanting to explore the Weardale Valley or North Pennines in general.
