Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Amazing property. We loved staying here and would happily book again. Very well placed for a beach-combing holiday. As described. Very clean. Good heating for a cold weather break.

The tower is decorated lovely, it's comfortable, homely and immaculately clean with everything we needed in the kitchen. Set away from any main road it's perfect for quiet down time surrounded by fields. It's perfectly situated for visiting lots of beaches nearby and a short drive to Durham and the famous Seaham Hall beach for collecting sea glass.

We absolutely loved our stay here, the house/folly was really lovely,clean and well equipped. I had read on another review the bedrooms had no curtains so we took some bin bags and popped them at the windows, would recommended doing this if you like to sleep in darkness! We would definitely be back and book again as our kids loved it and the horses! Thanks fkr a lovely stay 😀

The location was beautiful and the property comfortable and a good size. It was a shame that they were stingy with loo roll ( only 1 roll for a 3 night stay). Comments relating to the shower have been made over several years and it is not clear why the simple repair needed has not been carried out. The code for the gate was incorrect in the visitor info and we had to call them at 11pm. A dish drainer would have been useful.

The folly is quirky, cosy, peaceful, beautifully kept and so clean. It's really comfortable and the views are delightful. Perfect location for exploring Durham and the surrounds, with the coastal footpath close by. Highly recommend.

This is a beautiful property which is extremely peaceful. The horses were a lovely bonus. The one thing that would have made it perfect was if you could get up to the top to really see the amazing views. We would definitely come back.

The property is beautiful so carefully restored. I personally really like to sleep in a very dark room, so for me no wondow coverings in the bedrooms was difficult. I would recommend if you are happy with this.
