    “WOW! what a fabulous place.”


    The property was like a maze and with its natural quartz and marble floors along with 250 year old stone features made this a very interesting and quirky property.The view along Stanhope high street was spectacular from the living room and kitchen.The owner had left us a bottle of fizz and a small hamper which was superb after our long drive.The quality of the fixtures and fittings along with the beds and linnen. Even the bath sheets were all absolutely top quality. We enjoyed browsing Durham dales centre and had a trip to high force water fall.beamish and bowes museum were amazing days out to.overall 10/10. We will definitely be booking this property again as it was outstanding.

The cottage

This delightful castle has been transformed into a set of apartments and is situated in the heart of the market town of Stanhope, in County Durham.

Resting on the ground floor, the property has been extensively renovated into a stylish and contemporary holiday home, whilst still boasting lovely period features with the original stone walls.

Use the spacious lounge area to relax and unwind of an evening, where you can keep up to date with all your favourite shows.

The open-plan kitchen has all the appliances you could need for a week-long break to the countryside, whilst the dining area provides ample space for family gatherings.

There are four bedrooms, three of which are doubles and a single, all are well-presented and include modern furnishings to store your personal items.

Delight in the family bathroom and en-suite shower room, where you can enjoy a long soak of an evening.

One of the best features of this property is the shower room-cum-sauna, offering a spot of luxury for your trip.

Situated at the bottom of the garden is the wonderful Weardale Open Air Swimming Pool, heated to a tropical temperature of 30 degrees centigrade, making it an enjoyable experience for the whole family.

Venture towards the medieval Raby Castle, set among 200 acres of deer park setting, an exceptional choice for those interested in historical architecture, or visit the famous ford and stepping stones across the River Wear at the bottom of the castle woods.

Visit Hamsterley Forest, covering more than 2,000 hectares and boasting a number of outdoor children's play parks, scenic walking and cycling routes through picturesque woodland areas with a plethora of wildlife to spot along the way.
