Brilliant place for groups
We stayed for New Year 2019/2020 as a group of friends with young children. The house is large, spacious and well equipped. It's warm and very homely with everything you could need. The village is lovely and the pub is well worth a visit, with beautiful walks all around. There is plenty to do and it's a great place to go and recharge your batteries. Would definitely recommend, and we'll definitely be back!

Family Christmas
Absolutely fab house for a family Christmas 9 adults really cosy and beautifully dressed for Christmas Kitchen/diner brilliant it meant we all could be prep and nobody felt isolated it was also really well equipped everything we needed definitely a home from home would definitely recommend this property Tried to book for next Christmas but unfortunately for us it's already booked

Fabulous House
We have just spent a week here in this beautiful house and had a fantastic time House has everything you could possibly need for a family stay. We have 4 children Ages 13,11,9 and 3 We all had plenty of space and the playroom was an added bonus which the kids loved and it meant we could watch some TV in the living room when they were playing Great base to do lots of things eg Diggerland, Beamish, Bowes Museum, Kilhope Lead Mining Museum and Sci Fi museum in Allendale Would love to come and stay here again

Spacious, warm, clean and well-located
We had a lovely stay at Prospect House - a great place for a group of friends, clean, spacious, well-equipped kitchen, nice big table, conveniently located for Hadrian's Wall country (45 minute drive to Vindolanda), plus local walks from the front door. We had a toddler with us, and the playroom and toys were very welcome (plus there's a good playground 5 minutes' walk away). Great heating system - nice and warm on what was a very cold weekend.
