Amazing House

We have just returned from a 4 day break in Unthank Hall. 2 couples, 3 children and 2 dogs. The house is steeped in history and has been beautifully and lovingly restored by the owners. We had a fantastic stay, and the history surrounding the hall only added extra excitement to our Halloween celebrations. The village of Stanhope is a lovely place, with good pubs, good food and friendly people. I would really recommend the Unthank Hall experience. Especially the roll top bath, which was fantastic after a long walk on a cold day.

Fabulous Historical House.

We arrived to be met with a warm welcome from the owners ( Alan & Polly ). They had put the log burning fire on for us and Polly had made us gorgeous chocolate muffins !!. The house is a listed property lovingly restored to make it into a fabulous quirky home. There was everything you could need for a great stay , from logs for the fire, hand wash and matching hand cream in the bathrooms , games and plenty books available. The rooms are large and comfortable and the bathroom has a huge free standing bath. The garden is massive and a great place to sit on the decking area with a glass of wine watching the sun go down in the evening. The dogs loved it too !! We had a bar-b-que one night when it was a bit cool. Alan ( the owner) went out of his way to bring a brazier round which heated us all up nicely. The owners couldn't do enough for us but weren't intrusive. Stanhope is a lovely wee town with shops, cafes and pubs. There are plenty walks fom the house and also some a short drive away. The house sits on the edge of the town with a pretty walk beside the river which only takes about 10 mins to get there. There is a great pub 3 mies away called The Black Bull who do beautiful meals. I would have no hesitation in recommending Unthank Hall to anyone who wants a great stay in a brilliant home with amazing owners in a beautiful part of the country.

Brilliant Holiday

We went to Unthank as we needed to be close to home (Durham City) the brochure doesn't do it justice, it was fantastic, the owners were very friendly and made us extremely welcome, the house was full of character and in a beautiful location, we went with our 2 daughters and their partners our 10 month old grandson (he loved it) and our staffy, stunning scenery, friendly locals and great pub's. We all want to go back next year never enjoyed walking so much!

I am thankful for Unthank Hall

What a beautiful place, I would have stayed forever given the chance. My family and I had an amazing time, Alan and Polly were lovely, as were the delicious homemade chocolate muffins that were waiting for us when we arrived! Stunning, spacious house, with lots of history and a gorgous walled garden!
