As a group of 18 we stayed here and it was just great. The house has everything you need as if you were at home but with a bar area it felt like we were in our own pub and made our own entertainment. The house is decorated and furnished to a high standard and staying here as a group would suit all ages. The owners are very helpful and we have already made plans to go back!
Handy to A1 for people travelling South and North and to the A66 for people travelling East. We were there for a family gathering for a special birthday that was a surprise. The property well catered for our needs, 5 children and 8 adults plus dog. Children enjoyed playing at being bar staff which was great for the adults . The dining room had to be seen to be believed and we never felt crowded. Beds comfy , ample crockery cutlery and glasses. Even 2 dishwashers! Great to know once the main gate was shut children and dog could be let loose safely. Would like to visit again when there is racing on locally. The family had also engaged a local chef to cook and serve Saturday evening meal. He too coped well with the kitchen
We stayed here on the 20th January for 3 nights, a large family group and friends. What a delight to stay in such a beautful house. All of the rooms were furnished to a high standard, the decor has been well thought out with quality furnishings, fixture and fittings. The kitchen was extremely well equipped, the dinning room and lounge areas were beautiful and having your own bar area ... dream come true! Everything we needed was provided which made our stay comfortable and enjoyable, well done to the owners!
This is a lovely family-friendly holiday house and easily accommodated our large extended family of 13 adults and 6 children. We particularly loved the bar, pool table and massive dining room. The location is great too and we enjoyed days out to Beamish, Durham and Hartlepool Marina. We all had a great New Year holiday!
As a family of 20 ,we needed a large place to accommodate our family.this was perfect,beautifully restored and very relaxing.we had our very own bar and everything we needed to cater for our meals.Xmas decorations were a lovely touch.
The room were named after local tourist attractions, we stayed in the Durham room, our kids stayed in Beamish. The rooms were all of a large size with foldaway beds which meant we could easily accommodate all the different family groups. We put the teenagers in the annexe, which they loved as they had their own space. Although there were 20 of us, there was so much space you never felt crowded. The men spent most of the time pulling pints which meant the girls could chill in the sitting room. The pool table was brilliant and very well used . The kitchen was fully equipped and the double oven and extra oven meant we could easily cook a full Xmas dinner without any issues.
The place is new and is easily the best large property we have used over the year's.
