The property is amazing very homely and the owners were great, I would certainly recommend this property to anyone. The living room is so grand with the log burner just finishes it off nicely. The whole house is furnished to a high standard.
Miss Talbot

The welcome to the property was very warm and it was interesting to hear about the history of the house. There were lots of leaflets about activities and walks in the local area. The house had everything we needed for the week and was big enough for two families holidaying together.
Ms Mcculloch

There was a wonderful history to the house and it had lovely features such as the staircase and the kitchen. The owners were so friendly and helpful and even gave us a tour of their house at the end of our stay. We loved the garden and were extremely fortunate to get wonderful sunny and warm weather in the first week of October. The inglenook fireplace in the lounge made it so homely. We all had a great time.
Mrs Brown

We stayed in Unthank Hall with my wife and two young kids (3 & 4). The house is full of character with plenty of space and amenities. Stone floors, old fireplaces and original features all make this a genuine old country house experience. There's plenty of indoor and outdoor space for the kids and the adjacent farm and stepping stones to the park provide interest and distractions to keep them entertained. The setting is beautiful, unspoilt Durham countryside, next to the river and close (walking distance) to the center of Stanhope. The hosts, Alan and Polly are very friendly and willing to help with any needs.

A wonderful, historic house which was very well situated for touring the area. The owners were really welcoming. We look forward to staying at Unthank Hall in the future.
