Cabin was amazing ,very clean and comfortable, bag with 2 dog blankets in and 2 dog bowls to use and doggy bags which was nice touch, also very very nice biscuits, prosecco and cream cakes which we kept for my birthday treat.bed was a little hard for me but that's just me. Lovely space for our two dogs nice walks by river, had very large field to themselves. Debby and Rachel's fish shop up the lane was gorgeous,lovely lady, we went to Raby castle for Wallis plenty of dears to see. Lovely dog walks around and markets to look at. Honesty box at farm with home made honey again gorgeous tasting. We talked to Steve about his rare sheep .had a fantastic time ,extremely peaceful place to chill out.

    ... .if you want a slice of heaven on earth this is the place for you!! Was the perfect place to disconnect from the world and relax. We received a curtesy call on the day of arrival to see if we would like the hot tub setting up for when we arrived, whcih was great. We were welcomed by Steven, such a lovely warm welcome. We were showed around the cabin and informed how to use the fire and the hot tub and local information. The cabin was very well presented, so clean and tidy and very well stocked with items such as plates, bowels, bin bags, towels, milk, 'George Foreman' grill. Even our dogs got a little bag with blankets and bowels.. such a lovely touch. Great heating system, and the fire was phenomenal! My husband and myself can not recommend this place enough. The local towns are fantastic for sight seeing, great historical sights and fantastic dog walks and nature trails. Steven and Mary were so welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. We loved it so much we booked to revisit the second we arrived home.

    Wow, what a lovely review, we are thrilled that you had such a good week here. We noticed that you had rebooked and really look forward to seeing you, and of course, your four- legged family again. Once again many thanks for choosing to stay with us. Property Owner

    Well, what a find! Absolutely superb lodge situated on a beautiful estate. We arrived late on the Thursday and the owner kindly put the heating on for us for our arrival, which was greatly appreciated after a long journey. A lovely little treat bag was waiting for the dogs to use during our stay and a welcome tipple for us too! Very thoughtful! Kitchen was fully stocked with utensils for our stay. Lodge was very clean, tidy, organised, bathroom and kitchen looked brand new, large shower, and bed very comfortable. What more could you ask for. The lodge was fully insulated, had central heating and a lovely gas burner, you are not going cold staying here! Finally the Wood fired Hot Tub! Wow! Again the owner kindly talked us through how to use it and off we went. Really easy to use and just made our evenings after long walks even more relaxing! Beautiful views and wonderful villages, pubs and river walks all around you. Can’t wait to see what it’d be like in the summer! One tiny comment, Wi-Fi didn’t work very well in the lodge, however when you want to escape for the weekend, is that really a bad thing! Absolutely wonderful, would stay again!

    Thank you for the great feedback we are so pleased that you had such a goo relaxing break. We are also pleased you managed to see some of the area, it is a lovely part of the country. Great that you might come back in the summer it would be great to see you and your dogs again Property Owner

  • "The cabin was lovely place to stay, very clean, comfortable which we found to be a very relaxing stay."

    The weather was perfect. The owner was very accommodating, friendly, I would definitely consider staying again. My only complaints would be small things really, like extra bin bags and toilet roll for longer stays. As there wasn't any air-conditioning from my knowledge, a fan would have been nice in a wooden cabin on hot evenings as we couldn't open the windows at night because of the fly's getting in, so got very warm at night. Would have also been nice to have some sort of fly repellent because they got a little annoying. I'm aware we're on a farm so I understand, however maybe a mesh cover over the windows or one of those insect zapppers or something. Other than that really enjoyed the stay. Thank you.

    Really pleased that you had a relaxing stay and thought it was a lovely place. Thanks too for the other comments, we do have fans and have taken the others on board. Glad that they did not stop you from enjoying your stay. Hope you enjoy the rest of the summer Property Owner

Staindrop 1.9 miles.

Set amidst rolling countryside in the quaint village of Winston near Staindrop, is this charming lodge, Foxes Den.

Resting in a secluded spot on a working-farm, besides a river with an abundance of wonderful wildlife, Foxes Den is the idyllic hideaway for a couple desiring a rural escape.

Boasting an enticing hot tub at the front of the property with its own private garden area, as well as a gas fire inside, this lodge is a superb getaway.

Be greeted by ample private parking before making your way inside the welcoming abode into an open-plan living space, with a kitchen and sitting area.

The studio-style layout is extremely convenient, unwind on the sumptuous sofa, where you can flick through the channels on the Smart TV as you savour a glass of wine.

The kitchen area offers well-equipped grey cupboards, fry up tasty treats on the hob or make use of the microwave to rustle up a meal.
