  • "Very lovely cottage."

    The hosts are very welcoming and left some milk and chocolates for us. Really clean and comfortable with great facilities. Staindrop village is a lovely place to stay with some nice walks and an old church to explore. The cafe in the village is very good. Durham county has a lot to offer visitors. Raby Castle within the village is well worth a visit.

    Thank you for your excellent feedback Regards Linda & Walter Property Owner

    We have stayed here twice this year and will book again next year when visiting the area. Staindrop is a friendly village with several walks for the dog and ideal for visiting local tourist spots eg nearby Raby Castle.

    The cottage is in a fantastic location with a pub and shop nearby. There is a lovely walk by the river at the end of the lane. Would definitely recommend.

  • "Just back from a 4 day break in the lovely village."

    The cottage was perfect for us, well equipped, very clean and of a very high standard. Linda and Walter ensured everything was provided including an excellent welcome pack inc lovely chocolates, tea, coffee etc. The supply of fuel etc in the house was good rather than having to look for a local shop. Our dog tilly settled really well and the local over the road was friendly and offered a good range of beers although not serving food at the moment. Great break would definitely recommend. loved Raby Castle well worth a visit.

  • "Very nice cottage, exactly as described and very clean."

    Not only supplied tea, coffee and milk, but also lovely chocolates! Also more supplies provided than we expected (such as handwash, loo roll, detergent and softener for washer/dryer). Overall warm and comfortable - didn't need the woodburner! Word of warning though - if you need to shop at the local Spar, take cash - payment machine connection is erratic... Finally, perfect location to visit North York Moors, North Dales and North Pennines - wished we booked two weeks rather than one! Greta and Jim
