    The house has a real luxury feel and we especially enjoyed the hot tub and summer house set up. Richard and Denise are great hosts and were on hand if we had any queries. Can also really recommend the Fox and Tree just down the road- it has a great menu and very reasonably priced.

  • "This property is a great find and allowed us to visit lots of places in Northumberland, whilst visiting my son at Durham University."

    The house is extremely spacious and comfortable and has the added bonus of a hot tub, which was a fun addition to our stay. We explored some lovely places including Beamish, which was a very interesting experience going back in time, and the pretty sights of Hexham and Corbridge, which had a fabulous cake shop (Grants) that was a sight to behold!! I would thoroughly recommend Glebe House and Richard and Denise are wonderful hosts who live next door and make sure everything runs smoothly. It was a great week and if we visit the area in the future will definitely re-book!

    Thank you for your kind words Sue. We enjoyed meeting you and glad you enjoyed Glebe House. We'd love to see you all again sometime and once again, please thank Ray for the delicious trout. All the best Richard and Denise, Property Owner

  • "We had a great time at Glebe House."

    It is large and spacious for 6, but still has a very homely feel. We stayed there primarily to attend a wedding at the Dalton Pump House which is just a short walk away… as is the excellent Fox and Tree pub - albeit in the opposite direction! We stayed on and took the opportunity to use it as a base to explore the many places a short drive away - including Durham, Beamish Museum, Newcastle, Tynemouth Market… the list goes on! …And it’s always nice to jump in the hot tub to discuss the days events on your return. Richard and Denise are excellent hosts - giving you space and privacy, but always happy to have a quick chat when you set off on your days adventure. We highly recommend Glebe House for a stay in this area.

    Glad you enjoyed your stay David. Thank you for the feedback, we really appreciate it. It was a pleasure meeting you all and we'd love to see you back here some day. All the very best Richard and Denise. Property Owner

  • "We had a great time at Glebe House, the location was perfect for our group looking for a quiet few days and coastal walks."

    The house was well equipped and exactly how it was advertised. The summer house is a great asset and I'm sure would be perfect for warm evenings. We only had one minor disappointment and that was the lack of a downstairs toilet, especially if you were sleeping in the master bedroom with the open plan on-suite. Overall it is a lovely house and a great base for anyone wanting to explore the North East.

    Hi Julie. Glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your comments. We have noted the comments about the extra toilet for guests and are working on a solution. Hopefully in the next couple of weeks. Kind Regards Richards and Denise. Property Owner

  • "The property was extremely well appointed and very comfortable."

    We didn't use the master bedroom except for the walk-in shower, which was excellent, because it was too big for us! The kitchen was well laid out and quite easy to use, although I couldn't find any kitchen scales; it didn't make much of a difference! The living room was spacious and warm, with a large TV, which we only used a couple of times. The one fault I'd say it has is no downstairs toilet. Again, it's a minor fault.

    Thanks for the feedback Peter. The downstairs toilet issue has been mentioned before and we are hoping to install one in the next couple of months. All the best Richard and Denise. P.S. the kitchen scales are a flat, black digital set in the drawer under the hob. They are a little difficult to spot. Property Owner

  • "Very large house, sparsely furnished, certainly not enough furniture in the lounge for 6, which is very uncomfortable for a weeks stay, no cupboard space in the kitchen for food storage, for such a large house it definitely needs a downstairs toilet!"

    ! And the open bathroom in the master suite is not very appealing. The traffic noise is a constant 24/7 and you definitely need a car. There is a lot of techno in the house which needs definitive explanation.

    Thank you for your feedback on our property. I'm sorry that you felt that there was limited furniture; we can comfortably house 6 people in our property and we have not had complaints about this before, as you can see this is a large property. Unfortunately we cannot help that there is traffic nearby and we try to make all our guests as comfortable as possible, as you can see from all our previous glowing reviews.

The property

Seaham 1 mile.

Sitting in Dalton-le-Dale near Seaham, County Durham is this inviting annex, Glebe House.

Accommodating a family of six, Glebe House rests near Durham Heritage Coast, whilst also being within easy reach of the bustling towns and cities nearby.

Upon arrival, leave your vehicle in one of the off-road parking spaces and enter this welcoming dwelling.

The sitting room is home to a spacious corner sofa for you to lounge on as you watch your favourite show on the Smart TV; switch on the gas fire to warm the space during those cooler months.

Continue to the kitchen/diner, a fantastic spot for those who love to cook, with a fridge/freezer, dishwasher and electric cooker, along with a spacious food preparation surface at their disposal.

Once a mouthwatering dinner has been rustled up, gather the group around the nearby dining table and tuck into the meal, whilst the flickering flames of the woodburning stove warm your toes.

Make your way upstairs to find three marvellously appointed bedrooms, with one being a master double with access to its own private balcony, en-suite shower facilities and a TV; the space also connects to luxurious dressing room, so you can get ready for the day ahead in style!

Two more lovely double bedrooms can be found nearby, also enjoying their own en-suite shower rooms.

The property backs onto a private patio, where you can marvel at your peaceful surroundings with a mug of coffee in hand, continue down the steps to the shared lawn where you and the kids can enjoy some outdoor games in the sun.

The property isn't far from the fantastic Dalton Park Outlet, where you can access a range of shops and eateries, or continue to Murton to find more traditional pubs, along with a Watergate Fishing Lake that is ideal for keen anglers.

Seaham is just moments away, once a mining town, Seaham is now a bustling, seaside community where you can hunt for the famous seaglass or you can enjoy fun in the sun and sand on the town's numerous beaches, before playing a round of golf at the local club, touring the Harbour, Marina and Pier, or embarking on a walk along the Heritage Coastline.

Next stop is Sunderland, with the National Glass Centre and Hylton Castle certain to pique your interest, along with the exhilarating Silksworth Sports Complex & Ski Slope, a nearby go-cart track and the renowned Herrington Country Park.

Durham isn't far and is steeped in history, waiting to be explored, whilst Newcastle-upon-Tyne rests a little further afield, home to even more coastal fun, city attractions and sights to see.

For a break to remember, look no further than Glebe House.
