  • "1 meadow View is in a great location in stanhope,walking distance of a pub been the most vital."

    There are great walks from the doorstep.The only down side was the shower very underpowered,in full mode fluctuating between red hot then cold,worked OK in eco mode but would have had more power with a watering can.That said we would stay again as the cottage is otherwise spot on

    Hi So pleased you enjoyed the local amenities and walks they are right on Meadow Views doorstep … literally! I am sorry you had a problem with the shower, an intermittent fault had been identified however it has been changed and hopefully rectified the problem. Tommy Property Owner

  • "The property and furnishings were fine however the bathing facilities were awful."

    Shower is just a trickle, the hot water was barely hot during our stay, after long walks a hot bath is what was needed. We had to boil kettles to get a reasonable bath. Shame as that was what let the property down.

    Hi I’m so very sorry you thought the bathing facilities were awful but you should have contacted us to see if there was a problem however you didn’t … there is a note saying to be patient with the hot water as it’s a cylinder water heating system as there is no gas in the cottage. Our plumber has checked and there is no problem with the water heating system and the reason the shower was “a trickle” was because you had it set to economy and not on full. I hope this gives some clarity on your situation. Tommy Property Owner

  • "Fabulous updated very comfortable and spotlessly clean property."

    Beds were so comfy and linen/towels so fresh. The lounge sofas great to snuggle up on in front of a lovely log fire after a brisk walk around the Durham Dales. Didn't need anything more than the great pubs and food places that were just within 5 mins walking distance. Stanhope is great to explore on its on by foot with the option to travel and explore the surrounding area. Locals very friendly and food purchased locally was very good. Owners also left a lovely welcome pack with plonk and fresh flowers which was a very nice touch. Thank you to Tommy and his Mum for giving us a lovely place to call 'home' for a week. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others.

Still trying to improve and insure we’ll get there .. Thanks got staying and hope you return x Take care x Property Owner

  • "My Husband and I and our little dog stayed here fir the week from the 29th October."

    We found Meadow View absolutely perfect for us. We've stayed in Stanope a couple of times before and just love the area. Cottage was just perfect. Lovely flowers on our arrival and some little extras to help us settle in. Oh and the prosecco was delish. This cottage had literally everything you could ask for. We were going to book for the following week but unfortunately it was already booked, we loved it that much. Thanks ever so much and we will be back.
