For me, luxury is about attention to detail - you will have to make your own judgement on this place - which incidentally is a £7 taxi ride to Yarm, probably more when the traffic is busy.
Mmm.... Stayed in the new "stable block" it has been done up to a high standard - but that is not kept up. The tiled floor is high gloss, but with mop marks all over it - which does somewhat ruin the desired effect.
We had a 2 night stay and the room was not 'done' after the first night, so we made our own beds and cleaned out cups etc. The tea and coffee basket had a bus ticket in it dated 3 weeks earlier - so no one had checked it for a while..which does not say luxury to me!
The breakfast is a choice of cereals and on both mornings out of date muller type yogurts, the cooked breakfast was a no choice affair with some cheap ingredients, but not the sausage which was good. Also, worth noting that breakfast is an added extra of I think £7.50 each - not worth it - go into a cafe on Yarm main st and you will get better and cheaper
The downer for me was the fact our bathroom had not been cleaned I know this because the previous occupant's shampoo and conditioner were still by the basin and - this is not for the squeamish - the previous occupant's poo was in the loo - only a small amount, but it should have been cleaned. There is no soap in the bathrooms, we know this as our friends also commented on it.
You do get offered a drink of wine or a beer, the wine itself was not very nice, but it is a nice gesture.
I know it is a family home - but I didn't really expect to circumnavigate the large pile of shoes at the bottom of the stairs to their living areas?
Oh and what you should definitely know is that there are interconnecting doors to the rooms on either side- through which you can hear a little too much! We had a drunk couple rowing about 2-3 am - I got so fed up that I just banged on the door and shouted back at them.
I will try and up load a couple of photos, but may to ask for help from hubby for that. We paid £183 for 2 nights, not worth it.
