  • “Thoroughly enjoyed our stay as a group of 12 ladies on a hen party weekend.”

    Nicola is fantastic at quickly answering any queries you may have. Property was stunning and the views brilliant. The outside hot tub area is lovely although we didn’t quite expect it to be around the corner of the house, there was also an extra downstairs bedroom advertised in the profile which appeared to be blocked off by a bookcase.

    Nicola is fantastic at quickly answering any queries you may have. Property was stunning and the views brilliant. The outside hot tub area is lovely although we didn’t quite expect it to be around the corner of the house, there was also an extra downstairs bedroom advertised in the profile which appeared to be blocked off by a bookcase. Rookhope itself is very rural, which Nicola had already explained. Numbers were provided however so we could get to nearby cross keys Eastgate pub for a Sunday lunch. There is a bus also, 102, which we discovered whilst walking which took us into Stanhope. Overall a beautiful property, ideal for big groups.
