    “We enjoyed the spacious house, the atmosphere and comfort.”

    Although it was only for a short stay, we did regret to leave.

The second floor bathroom offers a choice of a bath and shower, with attractive tiling and black wallpaper with white patterns, giving this room a quirky feel.

To the rear is a slim garden with pathway leading to seating within a covered pergola, big enough for enjoying with a glass of wine.

Wearhead is set in rural countryside with the nearest shop being 3 miles away in St John's Chapel, and further amenities can be found in the village of Stanhope, ten miles away. Stanhope is described as the "Capital of Weardale" as it occupies a sheltered position on the north side of the Wear at the confluence of the river and the Stanhope burn.
