  • "We just got back Sunday 23rd Jan we had a fantastic three nights stay, We were warmly greeted by Steve, He rang before we arrived to see if we wanted the hot tub fired up which we did, The lodge was perfect had everything we needed and was absolutely spotless Nothing was to much trouble for Steve and he was very approachable at all times also very informative and lovely smiley chap?"

    Scenery from our lodge was outstanding and perfectly situated, We ate at the Brownlow arms as recommended by Steve and the food was excellent, Would not hesitate staying there again, It’s a massive TEN from us, Val and Trev, x

    Thank you for the lovely comments. We will certainly pass your feedback onto the Brownlow arms as well. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and laughed out loud at the comment "smiley chap" Best wishes to you both and hope to see you in the future. Property Owner

    It was immaculate, comfortable and warm. The views over the surrounding farm land were incredible and the wood fired hot tub was definitely the highlight for me. Alwent Hall is quite easy to navigate to and find. There is a huge white stone at the top of the driveway that indicates where you need to turn in. There is also ample parking for large cars in the designated accommodation spaces. Alwent Hall is conveniently located between the Yorkshire Dales and Pennines National Park so ensure you plan a long enough stay to explore all they have to offer! Steven is a gracious host (he called me on the day of my stay to ask if I wanted the hot tub heated up!) and very easy to talk to, with plenty of life stories if you want to hear them - at the same time, he will happily leave you be to enjoy your time there on your own (unfortunately we did not get to meet his wife, Mary). There is a lovely pizza restaurant in the nearby town that delivers right to your lodge doorstep and the local pub, The Brownlow Arms, was a typical country pub that served AMAZING food. The one and only suggestion we have to improve (this does not affect our stay at all, just a nice comfort addition) is to add stepping stones from the door to the hot tub. The gravel was a little sharp under foot! Thankfully the distance from the hot tub to the lodge isn't far at all. I believe this place is ideal in winter and summer! We will absolutely return when the weather is warmer so we can enjoy a drink on the deck overlooking the rolling hills, stream and surrounding farm land. Overall, the lodge and its setting at Alwent Hall was a gorgeous, calming environment and I highly recommend it to anyone who is considering a hot tub/nature walk/log cabin getaway. I left feeling totally relaxed.

    Thank you so much for the wonderful feedback we are just happy that you enjoyed yourselves and if you do return in the future there are many more life stories to be told!!

    The cabins are very comfortable, clean, set on a very tidy farm and with lovely views. They made our Christmas break extra special with small touches and gifts on the 25th :) Would highly recommend and will definitely return.

About the location

The pretty Teesdale village of Staindrop has always been closely associated with the fortunes of nearby Raby Castle and its owners. The Castle (open to the public) is one of the most grand in England. Enlarged and beautified over the centuries, the medieval heart remains and a walled garden and 200 acre deer park add to the splendour. Staindrop has many interesting shops, pubs and cafes set round its long village green. The popular market town of Barnard Castle is 5 miles away, with its castle, the Bowes Museum, plus of course its wide range of shops and tea rooms. Walkers will enjoy the many walks around Teesdale.
