  • “Second stay in this lovely apartment, and we still love it.”


    We had 2 couples and a granny in our party and we had our own rooms, 1 en-suite and 1 shared bathroom, so plenty of room for everyone to get ready and get out without queuing. Kitchen is very well equipped, so you can easily cook and serve your own meals if you don’t want to eat out - although the cafe in the square was lovely. Did I mention the hot tub? What a bonus! In a bespoke wooden gazebo to keep the rain off, perfect way to end the day - not overlooked, and nice to watch the moonrise in the early evenings in autumn/winter. Stanhope is a nice village with a great range of shops for supplies and good road links to Durham and beyond. Only thing stopping me giving 5 stars across the board is the lack of a dishwasher - but that’s a ‘boys job’ in my house lol

The property

This historic grades two star listed castle and part of English heritage is a unique luxury ground floor apartment which is located amongst enticing scenery in the market town of Stanhope, on the North East side of Weardale.

Perfect for a group of friends or a family wishing to get away from it all, this retreat is a true representation of tranquillity, both inside and out.

The open-plan living area has been tastefully styled with a charming lounge and a characterful dining area, set-up for six people.

The kitchen lies adjacent, complimented by a neutral overtone, and off-set by black and white tiles.

There are some wonderful features to the room including a stereo and a view of the lovely garden area worth admiring.

You will be spoilt for choice between three fabulous bedrooms, all are accessorised with chandeliers, diamante headboards, and backed by a patterned feature wall.

You can cosy up in luxury, especially in the master bedroom which boasts its own en-suite, as well as a dressing table and TV, creating a lovely haven to unwind.

Continuing the modern feel, a family bathroom features a bath with a shower over, designed to that of a hotel standard.

After appreciating the glamorous interior, why not spend an hour or two in the hot tub, where you can really be at one with the location.

The town of Stanhope is home to a delightful high street, offering a wonderful selection of pubs, coffee shops, art galleries, a heated outdoor swimming pool and pleasant riverside walks for when the sun is shining.

Beautiful Blanchland, the "perfect village", lies just 10 miles away, whilst the city of Durham is just 22 miles away, home to a notable cathedral and castle.

A fantastic getaway however you choose to spend your holiday.
