Come and be spoilt at our unique Country Bed and Breakfast, which is set in an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' in Upper Weardale. Our aim is for you to enjoy staying in this venerable old stone house as More much as we do; to feel 'at home' rather than 'in accommodation'. We pride ourselves on the quality of our food - we make our own bread, do lots of home baking and use eggs from our own hens. Guests are greeted on arrival with a tea/coffee tray and homemade cake or scones in the guest sitting room and, although there are tea/coffee making facilities in the bedrooms, we will happily serve tea and coffee at any time during the day at no extra cost. As we only accommodate a maximum of four guests the house is a tranquil haven if you just want to sit by the log stove and read or relax. Or you can go out and about in our beautiful countryside, which is perfect for walking and cycling. In summer, you can sit in the garden or comfortable summer house and watch the sun set behind the hills - feel free to bring your own wine!Guests have their own entrance and, when we have guests, we withdraw to our own quarters separate to the rest of the house. Effectively Hill House East is yours during your stay. We kindly request that guests do not smoke in the house and we regret we cannot accommodate very young children. Dogs are welcome if they sleep in your car and we have a good 'exercise field'. We Welcome Wainwright Walkers! We are very excited by this new long distance walk which passes literally by Hill House East and has one of its overnight 'stops' in Westgate. We are also right on a new alternate 'Coast to Coast' cycle route and we have safe, lockable cycle storage. At Hill House East a warm welcome awaits. Less

I will definitely return - hopefully ver

May now seems a long, sunny time ago as the wind and rain lash HIll House East! But, we are told we will have another good summer, so we hope you can come back then. But, whatever the weather, be sure of a warm welcome here. Carol Graham

We had a wonderful, but all to brief stay with Carol and John in September. Nothing was too much trouble and they were both there to welcome us -with warm drink and treats!- when we arrived late in the evening after Kynren. When we woke the next morning we couldn't believe the

Thank you so much for your very kind review; you were our first guests to come after being at Kynren - and hopefully not our last! After your late night and all the excitement it was our pleasure to give you a more relaxed morning and the good weather certainly showed the beauty of Weardale off to its best - hope you can come and see more!

We were welcomed by Carol and John, two genuinely delightful people, to our quarters. The immaculately kept stone cottage and the interior matched that of the beautiful sunny day when we arrived at their doorstep. The outside summer garden and the summer house were equally cared

Hugely warm welcome given here by Carol & John to my wife and I in their beautifully positioned cottage. Every facility provided in this very clean b&b with fantastic views. Good privacy if required as accommodation semi - separate. Can’t remember a breakfast being better and you

Thank you so much for your very kind review; our aim is indeed to make our guests feel they are staying in a real 'home' and not just accomodation. I am sure the chickens will be on standby to provide you with breakfast any time you are able to visit again! Best wishes - Carol Graham
