Perfect, cleanest cottage we've ever stayed in. Lovely little touches like milk in the fridge (Keith knew we travelled from abroad and arrived late), he put the heating on for us also. He allowed a late check out as the cottage was not being used that day, this helped as we had a funeral to prepare for. True kindness

Beautifully comfortable beds and high quality bedding, all smelt fresh and just washed. Bathroom was light and airy with some travel sized cosmetics. Lovely fire in the lounge made for really relaxing evenings.

Children enjoyed all the animals and we had lovely walks. We also enjoyed some steep hill running just outside the entrance.

Kitchen was well stocked and we appreciated the washing up liquid and sponge!

Thanks for a brilliant stay and all your kindness Keith. We wish you all the best and would return to the cottages (hopefully in nicer circumstances)

“Relaxing break”

Lovely location on northern peaks. Very quiet, surrounded by sheep and wind turbines. The cottage was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. Great welcome from Keith and Jane with tea, coffee and fresh eggs from their own chickens. Enjoyed the Washington Wetland Centre and Beemish museum during our stay.

“Tranquil Retreat”
Reviewed 25 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

From the moment you drive up to the cottages you know that this is going to be very good. We stayed at the Cornmill Cottage and could not ask for anything more. Spotlessly clean,very nice furniture,comfy beds and the stunning views of the countryside. We went in June and had some nice sunny days as well as rainy days which resulted in the evenings being chilly but the cottage central heating was excellent. If you are looking for a peaceful relaxing break then book the Stowhouse Farm Cottages and i'm sure you will not be disappointed.

“Cosy Cottage”
Reviewed 18 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed at Ivy Cottage this week with our two sons aged 5 and 3. We found the cottage to be the perfect size for us. It was warm, comfortable and clean. This proved to be a perfect base for all the attractions we wanted to visit. The kids especially enjoyed all the lambs in the field right next to the cottage. Keith greeted us on our first day and made us feel welcome and that, had we needed to, we could've contacted him or Jane during our stay. We would definitely recommend this cottage to friends and family.

“We had a very good time at Stowhouse Farm Cottages.”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

person found this review helpful

In July 2014 we stayed in the Cornmill cottage (3 bed rooms) at the Stowhouse Farm for 11 nights . We are a family of five from Dortmund, Germany, and our children are 14, 12, and 7 years old. The cottage is well equipped with everything a family needs to spend a good time. As Pub food is not enjoyable for a longer time, we were able to prepare our own food in the nice kitchen. The kids enjoyed the living room with the huge modern TV and the DVD-recorder. Stowhouse Farm is a very peaceful place surrounded by farmland with sheep and horses. The kids were enjoying the countryside and talking to the animals.
Keith and Jane were arround to help, whenever necessary. I have found my running route through Cornsay, 5 km small ashpalted road with nearly no car. Well maintained public footpathes can be used through the nice countryside and a nature reservation. From Stowhouse farm we undertook many 1 day sight seeing trips to Beamish Museum, Raby Castle, Durham, etc.. Hopefully we can come back soon.
