  • “Disappointed to find the summer house as gone when we arrived, very clearly advertised when we booked sometime ago and not advised it had been taken away?”

    The hot tub was cold the first day and required us to clean it before using, then couldn’t use it due to to much Chlorine being put in, reported this but advised simply to wait until it had subsided which was less than ideal with our young grandson.The cleaning of the house left something to be desired, we hoovered the floors on arrival as the kitchen area was covered in dog hairs from previous occupants I assume.

    The hot tub was cold the first day and required us to clean it before using, then couldn’t use it due to to much Chlorine being put in, reported this but advised simply to wait until it had subsided which was less than ideal with our young grandson.The cleaning of the house left something to be desired, we hoovered the floors on arrival as the kitchen area was covered in dog hairs from previous occupants I assume. Kitchen is lacking on some basics essentials such as decent frying pans, measuring jugs and lots of little things needed for cooking. One major thing missing was plastic cups or glasses for the hot tub? Surely from a safely point of view it a must? Overall the place is very nice but in need of some attention, leaking conservatory roof, conservatory door locks impossible to use, windows leaking water everywhere. Mould around the windows and curtains etc which was a worry with our young grandson around. I think the house has an issue with water pressure as showers would run hot/cold when ever other taps run etc. Overall a really nice place which just needs some attention to the detail to make it so much better.

The property

This single storey cottage was once the charming gate house to the imposing Walworth Castle, near the thriving market town of Darlington, in County Durham.

Set within beautiful 18-acre grounds of fabulous lawns and woodlands, this stone-built cottage still retains lots of its charm with a castellated stone structure.

Perfect for families, friends and couples alike, this heart-warming accommodation has been thoughtfully decorated to reveal a high quality finish throughout.

The entrance is through a gate at the front and down a pathway taking you to a small porch, where immediately inside you will come to a cloakroom.

Next the kitchen presents itself with sleek granite worktops, modern, integrated fixtures and contemporary colourways.

The living room comprises a lovely set of patchwork sofas, a gas fire on the wall, and adjoins the TV room, which boasts French doors leading to the outdoor space.

Take some time to gather your thoughts in the conservatory with a good book, or get together with the family in the dining room for a sociable gathering over dinner.

Indulge in the luxurious hot tub after a tiresome day walking the fabulous Dales, positioned on the patio, it nestles in a private spot next to the garden furniture.

Walworth Castle is a stunning Grade I listed, 12th century castle, playing host to a fabulous three-star hotel, benefitting a lovely bar and restaurant, serving delicious drinks and afternoon tea, as well as a scrumptious dinner menu.Walworth Castle Lodge is located within walking distance to Walworth Castle Birds of Prey centre which is the number one tourist attraction in County Durham.

Nearby, Darlington offers an abundance of well-appointed amenities and is well-known for its railway connections.

The wonderful city of Durham is situated to the north, with its majestic cathedral and castle waiting to be explored.

The surrounding region offers beautiful countryside rich with classic Dales landscape of dry stone walls, rivers and valleys.
