“Happy Weekend”
Reviewed 22 May 2013

My wife, myself and our 2 dogs had most enjoyable weekend at Dowfold House. It is a beautiful house in a lovely location. We were made most welcome and everything was great. THE BREAKFASTS WERE EXCELLENT. We would certainly reccomend Dowfold House

Thank you. We really enjoyed having you - and of course your dogs - here for the weekend. Breakfasts can - and ought to be - fun and we take great pride in our use of good local ingredients and baking our own bread, and making our own jams, and... (I do go on a bit)

One of the best B&B in which we have stayed. Overall a very good experience. Very welcoming with comfortable rooms. Serves excellent breakfast. House very well appointed and immaculately maintained. Location convenient for access to Durham and to surrounding countryside. Would happily stay there again.

Thank you for your kind comments. We do particularly appreciate your point about how convenient Dowfold House is both for Durham and the countryside. We are right on the border of Weardale, one of England's last real wildernesses, and an awesome place to visit

My daughter and I stayed the night so we could attend a Parelli Natural Horsemanship clinc at the Stonechester Stud. Dowfold was very close and offered everyuthing we could have needed. The room was beautifual and light with plenty of space and the en suite had eveything needed to pamper yourself after a hard day with the horses. The breakfast choices were extensive and the pain au chocolat went down very well with my 10 year old! The gardens looked idyllic and we felt very welcome indeed. I only wish we had been staying longer to take full advantage of the delights of Dowfold! Will certainly revisit Dowfold as and when we return to Stonechester for more training.

Room Tip: The Pink room was super

What fulsome review! Thank you. We are rich in things equestrian around here - to the point where we can offer your horse B&B as well as yourselves. I'd agree about the pains au chocolat - which your daughter spelt correctly (rare). We bake them fresh in the morning, so they are just out of the oven - and all the better for it.

When I first searched the internet for a place to stay near Crook I was pleased to find Dowfold House. I am not a regular b&b user and generally prefer to stay in a boutique hotel. The website gives a promising overview and the reality met or exceeded my needs. The Green Room has been my choice on two occasions and I love to look out over the garden to the town below. The beds are comfortable and the excellent shower is simple to operate - even for a north american! I felt very comfortable here from the start and even more welcome on my return some years later. Jill and Rupert are gracious hosts. They deserve every award they receive!

It was a pleasure to see you again, and reassuring that our standards haven't slipped! We're flattered by the comparison to a boutique hotel, and will continue to strive to uphold the level of service we offer. They say Americans are the most demanding consumers on the planet, so if we can please you, well...

If you are visiting anywhere near here (eg Durham is about 7 miles away), you couldn't wish for a better B&B with the freshest air (well, I live in London!) and the friendliest, highest level of service.

Jill and Rupert are perfect hosts and the house itself is beautifully appointed with everything you could want for. Run in a very "green" conscious way, the rooms are spotless and very comfortable. The breakfast service has won awards (I can see why) and the view and general setting is lovely, complete with a passing sparrowhawk this morning!

It's a wonderful spot. Find an excuse to visit.

We're so glad you enjoyed it here. We really loved having you and your colleagues to stay - and the concert was wonderful! We clearly had the air brought in specially - although not from the Arctic this time. We are lucky in the range and variety of bird-life around here, and they are really great to watch at breakfast (although the sparrowhawk's breakfast CAN be a bit messy...)

We had another lovely stay with Jill and Rupert at Dowfold house. We slept in the very comfortable red room and enjoyed the invigorating shower in the morning. The house is immaculate, very comfortable and the breakfasts are the best. We have used this B&B several times while traveling to Scotland as it makes a handy stop over and the route north via Jedburgh to Edinburgh is spectacular.

Thank you. we always look forward to welcoming you and I'm glad we continue to come up to scratch! We ARE popular for a break for those heading Scotlandwards - just exactly half-way between London & Inverness, and we always enjoy greeting our cousins from "Alba" (the old name for Scotland, according to my Scrabble dictionary...).

I cannot fault Dowfold House, I had a warm welcome from Jill and Rupert, the room was spotless, thoughtful and beautiful, you could not get better in a 5 star hotel. The breakfast was one of the best I have ever had in a B&B and the setting is lovely. I will definitely return!
