    Had a fantastic week in Desmond House, the owners were extremely helpful with any questions/queries we had. The house was equipped with everything we needed for a family of five. Having log fires in both rooms made it very cosy in the evenings when the family wanted to do different things. Great walk opposite the house threw the woods and a lovely hike to low and high force waterfalls if you want a day of walking. Enjoyed having breakfast outside in the little sun trap listening to the local wildlife. Would highly recommend.

    A lovely cottage, beautifully clean and well equipped. WiFi works very well. It is a short walk to amenities in the village but it's quite steep walking back. We had a great time helped by good weather. I would highly recommend this cottage.



    out of 10

    We all loved Desmond House. It was roomy upstairs and down with two large bedrooms and a comfy single room and tastefully decorated throughout. The kitchen has all you will need. Roadside parking (on a quiet road) was fine though you can also park on the driveway but then you may have to backout onto the road. It is close to the local fish shop (we recommend) but you will have to walk uphill on your return. For our provisions we went to Bishop Auckland where you will find all you need for a family shop. We brought our bikes and enjoyed both the walks and cycle rides in the area....if the sun shines it is beautiful. if you want to eat out the local pubs do good sunday lunches etc but we would recommend a small Spanish restaurant at Stanhope!
