It was way back in 2007 that I stayed here. I was not doing reviews then, but I still remember Margaret and Peter with fond affection. I came up just before the Wolsingham show to attend a funeral and stayed two nights. I had the most friendly welcome from Margaret with tea and cake. The room itself was everything I... More

This is one of the best B&B's we have ever stayed at. Margaret and Peter were so welcoming and we felt we had known them forever.They have thought of everything that might be required for the comfort of their guests. We were greeted on arrival with cake and refreshments in front of a blazing log fire in the guests lounge.... More

A really high standard of comfort, décor, and breakfast menu. Farm grown bacon and sausage, home-made bread. Close to beautiful Durham, Barnard Castle, Hamsterley Forest, the Durham moors and many other attractions. Margaret and Peter were delightful hosts. We recommend Dale End very highly.

We had a lovely one night stay here, our first night away with our 4month old baby. Margaret and Peter gave us a very warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble during our stay, even offering us a travel cot, baby monitor and bottle sterilising facilities when needed. They made us feel right at ease and were very attentive... More

As a solo traveller I found Margaret and her husband very welcoming, my ensuite room was spacious, warm and comfortable and everything was very clean. Nicely decorated and with a lounge to use too if desired. At breakfast the bacon and sausages (local pork) were simply amazingly tasty -... More
