  • "Beautiful house is fabulous surroundings."

    Our family all agreed that the house was stunning and clearly maintained to a very high standard. The only very small niggle was each day during our stay David came to visit unnanounced and we felt we were being hurried to leave on checkout day. The hot tub was drained around 9am despite the children still being in the games room playing and us not needing to vacate until 10am. Other than that we can't fault the property and would recommend it to other families for their gatherings.

    Hi Debra, I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay. We come every day to check on the hot tub and put in the chemicals needed to keep it safe. Due to time limitations on a changeover day, so we can get the hot tub ready in time for the next guests, we do need to start early, I'm sorry you felt this impacted on your final hours at our property.

    So well kitted out for every need. Large open plan living / dining / kitchen area with floor to ceiling windows which faced onto a beautiful view of the countryside. Another living room with large TV on the next floor. Separate games room / sauna / hot tub area which went down a treat with us all. The smell of the homemade bread cooking as you walked through downstairs was a real treat along with the biscuits and cake left for us. David called over to see if everything was OK and just to give us a little rundown on various things around the house, a nice touch. The 7 bedrooms were all of a good size, 6 having en-suite bathrooms. There is a lovely large bathroom which is on the same floor as the bedroom without an en-suite. Lovely walks and a great friendly pub just across the road.

    So pleased you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your review Karen Property Owner

    We were greeted by David who took us around the house and explained everything. The fresh bread baking away and other goodies in the kitchen were a lovely surprise!! We are a large family from 2 months old upwards everyone could enjoy the facilities and comfort they needed. The leisure block with the games room and hot tub were well used and enjoyed by all. The location 10 minutes drive from Barnard Castle was great, Raby Castle and High Force waterfalls were very close by and we had a couple of lovely days out. We would definitely recommend this house, the location and facilities were perfect for us, we will be back!!

  • "We have stayed away many times as a large group of 15 people of varied ages (currently 4 months to 79 years) and Jacobs Lodge is one of the best properties we have stayed in."

    Especially liked the 2 separate living areas and the extremely well equipped kitchen. Nobody drew the ‘short straw’ bedroom wise as all but one twin were en-suite and that person had exclusive use of the family bathroom. For being such a large property it was warm and cosy and the separate building housing the hot tub, sauna and games room was well used. Pub within 2 mins with good food and friendly locals was great. Owner called to make sure all ok first night and the cake, biscuits and homemade bread were the icing on cake literally. Will deffo be looking to stay again

    We were aged 7 to 70 and we all had a wonderful weekend. The weather was typical for December and yet we’re were kept entertained the whole time, whether it was movies in the TV room, trips to the hot tub, taking in the views or enjoying the games room the cottage provided it all. We had Sunday lunch in the nearby put which was nothing special but nice & went to High Force which was only 15mins away for a walk, which was beautifu, especially as there had been so much rain! I’ve stayed in plenty large cottages and would certainly recommend Jacob’s Lodge.

    So much so we booked for next year as we were leaving. Ground floor bedrooms are perfect if any mobility issues. All bedrooms except 1 have en-suite which I think is perfect for larger groups of people. Everything you need is available. Fully stocked kitchen and the huge Christmas tree was just a beautiful touch. Every room was immaculate, hot tub/sauna/games room was just amazing. Owners were super friendly, location was perfect for us with stunning views. I could go on and on at how much we loved this place, but if anyone is having any doubts about booking - just do it you won’t regret it at all.

  • "The accomodation was perfect for our group - a three generation family holiday."

    We had a wonderful weekend at Jacob’s Lodge! The house is beautiful and was spotlessly clean. The furnishings are high quality and the bedrooms have a nice hotel feel. Being a group of 16, we found it so helpful thay each couple/family has their own en-suite (or could claim the family bathroom). And the size of the property meant we were never on top of each other. The owners have been generous with kitchen items - so loads of crockery, cooking equipment, glasses, mugs. Lovely extras left for us too! And what we hadn’t experienced before on trips was a dining table that could actually accommodate the number of people the house could sleep. Loved the open plan kitchen/lounge so everyone could be together as food was prepared. But having a second sitting room was ideal so we could split up. The separate hot tub and sauna area was brilliant. Again, thought has gone into this so there’s a toilet and shower plus sofas - yet another great space to hang out. And the games room was great! Loved the arcade machine especially. Karen and her brothers were lovely and extremely responsive to questions. We will absolutely be coming back! Wish we had booked for a week!

    The welcome package was lovely freshly made bread. The beds were very comfortable. The cooking facilities were fantastic and a little stock cupboard. Kitchen/ sitting room area was fantastic for our family get together. The only thing for us was the stairs didn’t have stairgates as we had 3 children 3 and under but ther was enough people to watch. The jacuzzi and games room was a favourite with the children and parents. The cottage was just everything we wanted as a family meeting area. The views were fantastic owners were very welcoming .

  • "Jacob’s Lodge is an excellent property, clean and well equipped and maintained but why are there no shelves in the shower cubicles for placing toiletries?"

    Very inconvenient One important reason for booking this property was its stated suitability for people with disabilities but the shower facilities are not safe for a disabled person. Proper cubicle safety requires: a firmly fixed handle on the wall, a proper shower mat with a bubble surface and a bath mat to step on. My grandson managed to find a bath mat for me in one of the other rooms, but all shower/bath facilities should have a bath mat for safety. While I would recommend the property to fit and healthy persons, as it stands I would absolutely not recommend it to a disabled person. As I am disabled, the above ratings mainly reflect this issue - it’s pretty, with lovely views, but - for me - not safe.

    I am so sorry you had these issues and thank you for bringing it to my attention. I wish you had contacted me while you were on holiday with us, as we do have the grab rails in our store cupboard which we put up when asked. I have been out to purchase more bath mats, but with this issue not been raised in the past, I was unaware of this being a problem. The 2 downstairs wet rooms are accessible for wheel chair users and we do supply a shower stool. Regards Karen Property Owner

    The grandchildren particularly enjoyed the hot tub with its music and disco lights. The lodge has everything you could need and the surrounding countryside is superb. As it’s not in a National Park, the area tends to be much quieter than the Lake District or North Yorkshire. Raby Castle is well worth a visit. Lovely walks, quiet, pretty villages and lovely market towns - what more could you want? The weather was very kind to us, no rain, not too hot. The only thing I would suggest is to bring along some comfortable folding picnic chairs as the outdoor seating is just picnic table/bench combination.

    There were 15 of us- 4 couples and 7 children children ranging in age from 6 to older teenagers. The property was easy to find and immaculate. The accommodation was really flexible with plenty of space for everyone to relax. We really appreciated the two separate living rooms although spent most time in the open plan kitchen dining living area. Adults, teenagers and little ones very much enjoyed the leisure suite and we spent lots of time here too. We have stayed in numerous holiday properties over the years and would say that this property ranks amongst the very best. Having never holidayed in this area we were really impressed with the beautiful Teesdale countryside. There were amazing views from the property and several fantastic walks straight from the front door. We particularly enjoyed the circular walk starting at Eggleston and taking in Romaldkirk and Mickleton before heading back to the house. The cooking facilities are very good but we also enjoyed a couple of meals out at The Crown in Mickleton and The Three Tuns in Eggleston - both were excellent. We would definitely consider a return visit to Jacobs Lodge and another chance to enjoy this fabulous property and stunning countryside!
