We stayed here in July 2015 as we was attending an event in nearby Hunwick. The Hosts were very welcoming and made us feel welcome immediately. The room we had was massive - Water at the side of the bed and the bed was very big and comfortable. The bathroom had a nice big shower which when tried the following... More

Myself, my husband and 2 children stayed here Saturday 15th August for 1 night. The room was fabulous, very large and contained everything we could possibly have needed. The owners were so friendly and literally couldn't do enough for us to ensure we enjoyed our stay. Would recommend this guest house to anyone whether travelling alone, as part of a... More

A gem of a find. Travelled to Crook to visit family and booked to stay here. What a wonderful welcome we received. Jim & Denise couldn't have been more accommodating and welcoming to us. Nothing was too much trouble. It felt like being at home. So comfortable. We were given keys to our room as well as keys to the... More

This lovely guest house was recommended to us and I can see why. The welcome is warm and friendly and the rooms are lovely. Good home cooked food is served to residents and non residents and no better indication of the lovely food and atmosphere is that a lot of the locals eat there. Will definitely be staying again.

I am a student based in Liverpool and came to Crook on a professional practice placement over the last two months. I came to the foresters expecting a room and a bed; I left with a family. Everything from the service to the rooms, to the food was absolutely excellent everyday without fail. Jim, Denise and Lesley were always a... More

I took a job in Crook early 2012. As i was staying with my brother and he could only accommodate one I needed to find a local B&B for week ends when my wife came from Norfolk to visit. We found Jim and Denise by chance. Our first experience was superb and we returned on six further occasions. Why? The... More

My cycling friend and I called in on spec having cycled up to Stanley Crook from Durham City on the cycling path that passes nearby to the premises. Although shut as a pub/restaurant the owner could not have been more welcoming in providing us with coffee and biscuits on what was a very cold day. We sat in the dining... More

After hearing many good reports on the Foresters we decided we'd see what it was like for ourselves. What we came across was one of the most disorganised restaurants I've ever come across. There are plenty of staff, who are all very friendly but unfortunately seem to have no idea what they are doing. There is no cohesion between the... More
