Stanhope was a great place to stay on our trip to the Kynren Festival - great event, which deserves to be much better known about, on a par with the Edinburgh Tattoo. The cottage was beautifully clean and well-equipped, a bit snug for 6 when it came to using the facilities, but never ran out of hot water, despite us all showering every morning. The village is well located for lots of other attractions too, and we'd definitely recommend both the area and Dales Cottage as a great place to stay.
rang on the morning to book for the same day and the owner Lynn managed to arrange everything for us. great cottage, very clean, very comfortable and everything we needed was available. would definitely rate this cottage we will be back, it was a lovely village and lots of places around to visit for day trips.
Spacious and very clean house, nicely renovated. Great shower and bathroom. I did not like the plastic covers on the chairs in the kitchen, for 6 people there would not be enough crockery, mattress could be a bit more comfortable. Tea, coffees, milk sugar and biscuits as nice welcome
Great location just off the main street, Lynn the owner is very responsive to e-mails & texts.
Photos don't do the place justice,its a gorgeous place, very homely and comfortable, only stayed for 2 nights and wish it was longer.
Stanhope is great for walks and just chilling out.
I would highly recommend staying here and we will be back in the not too distant future.
Great value for money and much bigger in reality than the pictures suggest!
Pros: Plenty of space, well appointed kitchen, lovely bathroom including a power shower, very quiet despite position in town, handy for the village amenities and only a short drive from Durham etc., decent WiFi.
Cons: Tired sofa which presents a challenge for older bones, not enough comfy seating for 6 in the lounge, some decor a little dated, no garden just a small yard (but plenty of walks/parks within a few minutes walk).
Would definitely stay again.
