  • "The property is one of the best we have stayed in, unfortunately the hot tub went off but was very quickly actioned by the owner."

    The beds are very comfy, the sofa is comfortable enough for sitting for a short time and very modern but not great for lounging. Having the Larmas in the garden (outside the property) was a massive bonus they were so lovely. The lodge had everything you need for an amazing stay. Wouldn’t have any doubt in booking this again. Thanks so much

  • "A fantastic property."

    . very well equipped, ideally situated geographically for visiting numerous places. Property owners were very helpful. We loved the views from the property and the Alpacas, horses, chickens in the fields opposite. Hottub and fire pit were amazing especially at night whilst enjoying a glass of wine. Fully recommend a stay at Stackyard.

  • "Stayed at the Stackyard at Witton Hall Farm."

    Unbelievable! The most amazing place we have stayed so far. The lodge is beautifully laid out and decorated with gorgeous views of the countryside. Arrived to a welcome pack of prosecco, chocolates, milk and fresh farm eggs which was a lovely touch and the eggs were beautiful! The lodge is really well equipped with everything you could possibly need in particular the kitchen area including BBQ utensils. The owner Chris and the rest of the team at site are fantastic and have been on hand any time we needed them. We had a minor issue with the hot tub not working correctly and within 15 minutes of notifying the owners, they were there to fix it. This is a suberb holiday rental with high quality living and sleeping areas, Beds very comfortable, great kitchen/dining area and all very high spec with quality amenities. There were 5 of us staying and all felt the space was brilliant with plenty of different areas to sit and not be on top of each other. Loved seeing the Alpacas and horses every day and feeding them apples and carrots. Outdoor space is spectacular to take in the beautiful views with a corner unit lounge by the outdoor BBQ and a seperate table and chairs with a built in fire pit. Plus the hot tub is fantastic with outdoor lighting and fairy lights over the tub. Amazing location, highly recommend. Plus the owners/managers really go ouy of their way to make you feel welcome. Amazing holiday had by all, thank you. We will book again specifically for here and highly recommend!x

    The accommodation was clean and very well equipped. We arrived with snow and the underfloor heating made the stay very comfortable. The hot tub was such a bonus after a day of walking, we will definitely return soon. Thank you!

  • "What an amazing property The StackYard is."

    Me, my family and our Labrador spent a week here which was so enjoyable. Fantastic views over the countryside (and the alpacas!)…safe to say we fell in love with the place very quickly. It really does have the WOW factor. The owners supplied all of the essentials - soap, washing/dishwasher tablets, condiments and we also got a bottle of bubbly, chocolates and fresh eggs which was a lovely welcome for us. This is going to be a regular holiday spot for us…already booked to come back to another property on the same site it was that amazing!

    Immaculate property which felt very luxurious. Lovely touches with the gifts of chocolates, prosecco fresh eggs from their own chickens and milk. Wonderful views and nice walks from the property. Hot tub was very well used, and garden was very welcoming. Thoroughly enjoyed seeing the alpacas every morning and giving them some carrots for breakfast. A good area with an excellent bus service into Durham. Would highly recommend and will definitely return if we go back to that neck of the woods.

    We had a wonderful stay for a week at The Stackyard, beautifully decorated with luxury features containing everything you could ever wish for in a holiday property and more! Lovely welcome gifts were also very much appreciated and the property is in a great location as there is so much to see in the area.

    Super comfortable, high quality fittings/appliances, beautiful surroundings. Boys loved having their own TV's in their rooms. The milk/eggs/fizz on arrival was very kind! Only (very minor point), there was cloths but no cleaning spray/liquids provided, didn't mind buying one but just in case the owners prefer a particular brand on their lovely surfaces! Would love to return! Thank you

  • "Really great stay at the stack yard, we loved staying here and would definitely stay again ."

    The Stackyard is very modern and the facilities are fab. We loved waking up and seeing the alpacas and animals in the fields in front of us each morning, really added to the experience .The owners are very friendly and accommodating, they even left us a gift when we arrived which was a lovely touch. The location of the property is good, only a few minutes drive to Durham and 30 min drive to the beach. We had our dog with us for this holiday and the walks from the house are great. The local pub is also dog friendly and serves good food. The only negative which isn’t really a negative , is we found the bedding to be itchy , but that could be our personal preference.
