  • "This is a splendid house and it was beautifully presented."

    The original Edwardian character of the property has been retained by the incorporation of entirely suitable and careful decoration and by the provision of tasteful furniture and fittings. The modern kitchen and bathroom were of a very good standard too. The owners had thought of everything to ensure we had a carefree week. We were very comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed our time at Hazeldene. We would love to return.

  • "We had an absolutely wonderful stay."

    Hazeldene exceeded our expectations in all areas...it was truly beautiful! Fabulous communication with the owners which was much appreciated, and although we didn't meet them due to Covid, it feels like we've known them for years! A lovely hamper was waiting for us which was such a lovely idea and consumed very quickly by teenagers and the dog!! We will definitely be back. A huge thank you for a wonderful stay. It was perfect.

    Hazledene was beautiful and the owners sent lots of really helpful information before we arrived. We enjoyed our thoughtful welcome basket of wine, biscuits and even doggy treats.

  • "Hazeldene is a beautiful well equipped house."

    Owners have gone above and beyond to make the cottage homely with many extras. Very dog friendly too. Nice, peaceful and relaxing holiday. Loved the quiet enclosed garden with the colourful flowers. The bed was extremely comfortable as was the whole house. Hazeldene was one of the nicest cottages we have ever rented and can't wait to return. We really didn't want to leave. Also just to say a big thank you to Lynda for her friendly communication before and during our stay. We were made to feel most welcome with her kind words. The welcome hamper was a pleasant surprise and even included doggy treats

  • "Our stay at Hazeldene was superb."

    it started with a greeting card from the owner, along with a nicely presented welcome pack which exceeded our expectations. we found the property very well presented and clean. the facilities where far beyond what you would expect in a holiday cottage. the beds where comfortable, linen clean and tastefully done. Bathrooms can always be a problem in holiday cottages, but that was not the case in Hazeldene excellent . Situated in a small and very quite village , a beautiful area . lots to see, a must is low force falls, Barnard Castle, Raby Castle, Middleton on Teesdale , are all a photographers paradise. Would we go again to Hazeldene , for sure in a heart beat, our stay was superb. Thanks to all. Gary

About the location


Barnard Castle 1 mile. Copley 4 miles

Stainton is a small village just one mile from the market town of Barnard Castle and 4 miles from the village of Copley located in the unspoilt countryside of Teesdale, in County Durham. Consisting of a small group of traditional cottages and boasting lovely views of the surrounding Dales countryside, Stainton is a great rural base for this part of the northern Dales. Barnard Castle stands on the site of an ancient Roman ford which crosses the river. The medieval ruins of the castle still tower over the river and are well worth a visit. Known affectionately as 'Barney' by residents and visitors alike, the town boasts cobbled streets, yards and back lanes which were first laid out in the 12th century. Beautiful walking country is right on the doorstep with The Pennine and Teesdale Ways, the River Tees and magnificent waterfalls at High Force are all within easy reach.
