“Fantastic, luxurious place with a warm welcome as well”

We were an extended family group of 12 from all over the UK (one even flew in specially from abroad), together to celebrate a couple of significant birthdays and the Jubilee, not mention degree results which happened to be published over the weekend.

What a fantastic place, spotlessly clean, wonderfully decorated, superbly equipped and enormous, with plenty of space for every one of our group to slink off for some 'me time' when needed (essential for harmonious family gatherings!). The bathrooms were exceptional, the beds REALLY comfortable and it was lovely and warm throughout.

There were outside areas as well with various seating and some numbered sheep in the field next door so we could play sheep 'bingo'!

Keith and his family were welcoming, friendly, accommodating, trusting and really flexible. They even lent us their barbecue!

The only criticism was that we felt that Keith hadn't really made it clear just how well equipped the fantastic kitchen was! This rapidly became the hub of our weekend, with people drifting in and out as we all ate, drank and made merry!

Wonderful!

Langton House Cottages are close to Castle Barnard in County Durham. Located in beautiful unspoilt countryside (when I went for a morning run I only saw birds and rabbits) yet close enough to the local town to buy provisions. Castle Barnard has a castle, great butchers, antique shops and high street regulars as well as a big supermarket.
There is plenty to do in the surrounding area.
The cottages themselves are intriguingly furnished with eclectic art and finds from Asia and the East. Every bedroom is different but all are equally luxurious and comfortable. The bathrooms were high tech and the showers amazing. Everyone loved the spa bathroom with its own TV and jacuzzi.
We had 4 children aged 10 and under with us who had a ball. Although kitted out in luxurious fashion the house managed to be child friendly at the same time. The owners gorgeous dog was a big hit!
The huge kitchen was well equipped and a fantastic place to spend the evening sat around the huge table drinking wine!
A highly recommended location for a large group of friends or family.
