It's hard to find words fine enough to describe this wonderful location. We were lucky to spend a great week with our walking friends in this fabulous place. We rented it on a self catering basis, and found it furnished to a very high standard, with a very well equipped commercial kitchen. All bedrooms had lovely views, and were extremely comfortable, with crisp bedlinen and lovely fluffy towels. Hot water was never in short supply, and was most welcome for a refreshing shower after a long walk in the beautiful surrounding countryside. Angela and Liz proved very welcoming, and accommodating, and made our stay very enjoyable. Stanhope is a nice small town, offering pubs, independent butchers and greengrocers (both very good), a Co-op, and chemist, amongst other things, and is only a short drive away.
