What a beautiful hotel and fantastic staff! The staff were so helpful and understanding when our young daughter was poorly during our stay. Nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be revisiting soon.

Very relaxing country hotel with good food and friendly staff. The hotel is an ex-country mansion in a deer park. It is a couple of miles from Spennymoor and there is nothing within easy walking distance
