  • "The house was lovely."

    Spacious bedrooms and just as we expected. It made a great base for to get out and about in the area. One point to note is that it might be challenging to prepare a meal for 8 adults in the kitchen with the equipment and that cooker. Ok though if you plan to eat out or get takeaways.

  • "This was a beautiful apartment."

    Decor and furnishings were great bathrooms and kitchen were of high standard and well equipped and everything was spotlessly clean . If I had any criticism it would be that the fridge was a bit small for a party of eight. All in all superb accommodation.

  • "The apartment was so clean and well presented!"

    We could have used more hanging space- there is no dryer and also we had rain everyday. Apart from that, the flat was more than we could have expected- lovely. We were worried about the on-street parking only, but there was plenty of space. We especially enjoyed the (mostly) independent shops being close, cafes, bakers, butchers etc. as well as a Co-op for all the rest. At the same time, a 10 minute walk took us right out into beautiful countryside.

  • "Welcome was fantastic."

    The owners were lovely and very willing to go the extra mile to help and to sort out any difficulties or questions. With 4 children I was worried that it was going to be difficult to keep them occupied but far from it. The location was great! Loads to do whatever the weather - from the Roman fort and Bowes museum, Durham cathedral and steam rains for the culture, to standing under a waterfall after a fabulous and free walk in the Pennines. The heated open air pool in Stanhope was great. Lots more to do. At the end of a busy day the apartment was perfect for families. Easy to cook and wash - loads of cutlery and crockery so that you don't have to run the dishwasher between every meal as in many properties. Clean, hot showers and both showers can be used at the same time without loosing power. The fresh local eggs on arrival (as well as other goodies) were just the perfet bonus! Recommend to everyone.

There's also a lovely, shared rear patio area.

An excellent location for a Weardale break.

Queens Apartments

A stone-built, former public house dating back to the 1800s, The Queens Apartments have been converted into three stunning, self-catering apartments. These three tastefully-appointed apartments are ideally situated in the centre of the bustling village of Stanhope in Weardale. Exuding luxury throughout, each apartment has been individually styled to provide all the comforts you could possibly want from your Durham holiday. All have contemporary kitchens with granite worktops and high-gloss units, the beautifully-fitted bathrooms twinkle temptingly and the living areas all have sumptuous sofas to melt into after a delicious home-cooked meal. After a long day out walking or cycling, your lavishly furnished bedrooms await you with pillow soft beds, fresh linen and fluffy throws. The penthouse apartment has its own private balcony whilst all guests share a rear patio with furniture and a beautiful arched passageway. Wonderful walks can be enjoyed from these apartments, with the Weardale Way passing through the town, or why not take a wander along the high street to the stepping stones and cross the River Wear, from there a rather challenging incline will take you to the surrounding moorland in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the second largest in England and Wales, boasting great scenery and wildlife? A short drive will take you to Barnard Castle, Durham, Corbridge, The Bowes Museum, High Force and Rokeby Hall, all easily reached for a day’s outing. With so much to see and do in the area, these apartments are the perfect place for friends and family to get together for a celebration or a countryside break.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
