“Family reunion”

This immaculate, spacious and well equipped property was the ideal location for our family reunion of eight adults, five children and two babies. Having two large lounges was a wonderful luxury; the kitchen held every device imaginable with lots of storage space including two fridges and freezers; beds were very comfortable, the bedrooms having lots of hanging and drawer storage; plenty of bathrooms with lovely fluffy towels and the garden area was immense. It cannot be faulted. Nearby, couple of minutes walk, a well equipped Co-Op, couple of pubs, in the next village was a huge children's playground and a fifteen minute drive away is Hamsterley Forrest with a Gruffalo Trail, cycle tracks, walks, huge play ground and a river to paddle in. An ideal area to bring children. We will certainly return.

Just returned from a lovely weekend break staying in this lovely house.
We were a large group (10adults 4kids).
The rooms were spacious and the layout of the ground floor is as close to perfect as you are likely to find.
The mega sized lounge and games room is fab and huge. There is also another quieter living room that is still enormous.
The dining area was plenty big enough for us all to be comfortably seated around the table and the kitchen has everything you could ever need.
I would definitely recommend staying here.

Reviewed 20 April 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Lovely location, easy access for us as a group of photographers to the whole Northern Pennine area for landscape , walking , relaxing. Also not to far for visits to Newcastle and the Durham Coast. Comfortable, warm, very well equipped and ideal in terms of rooms, space , bathroom facilities and home comforts

“Lovely family weekend ”
Reviewed 20 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

This place is perfect for those long awaited family weekends away. Time to relax and appreciate what we all take for granted. (Each other). Massive well equipped kitchen. Dinning room seated all of us (15) the location was great for walking. Some of our family remained at the house relaxing playing pool enjoying the lashing rain running down the windows. The property was nice and warm, very spacious and full of character. We really enjoyed our time here. Thank you

This the second time we have stopped here with family 13 of us kids and adults and dogs. We love it as it so big you don't feel on top of each other, we love the party room as we call it a nice big room with a bar and pool table and plenty of space to have a dance, and if you want a bit of quite time you can go in the other sitting room. Kitchen has everything you need you really don't need to bring anything apart from your food, love the new cooker and fridge/freezer. Love that we can bring our dogs, we find it is not far from where we live about hour half away but we feel like we miles away a good stress free few days, the place has a pub, shop, and a fish shop all in walking distance.
