Set in beautiful, tranquil grounds

Set in beautiful, tranquil grounds of 130 acres, including a section of the River Tees with fishing rights and an arboretum with over 240 species of trees, this superb detached former granary situated on a working farm, has been creatively converted to provide a spacious holiday home brimming with character. Near the North Pennines, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this charming house is perfectly located to tour the Yorkshire Dales, Northumberland with its majestic castles and magnificent beaches, and the Lake District is an hour’s drive away. Close by is the picturesque village of Neasham with a friendly pub and riverside walks, whilst Durham Tees Valley airport is only 4 miles. The owner, who lives on the estate, can organise many activities for visitors by arrangement including rough shooting, canoeing (canoes not provided), deer stalking (at cost), fishing (free), cycles for guests use, horse riding and badger and bird watching (70 species seen). The appealing market towns of Richmond, Yarm and North Allerton make an interesting day out. Stabling and paddock available (for 1 horse, at cost). Shops, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

Fabulous location. Huge cottage with plenty of space and outside areas. Tiny details like curtain rings and lack of sufficient wine glasses could do with some attention but overall a beautiful location.

Had a fabulous stay at The Ashes for our Christmas family get together. We hope to book this again in the summer. We didn't have any WiFi so kids had to talk to us 藍 so was great.

Grand house in peaceful grounds, however significantly lacking in TLC. Based on the previous reviews, we visited the lodge two weeks prior to staying as we were concerned about the cleanliness. We met the owner and pointed out a few concerns and he assured us that the property would be deep cleaned. Despite this, we felt that he didn’t really understand what we meant and dismissed previous reviews about people “just wanting discounts”. Our intuition was correct and sadly it was still filthy. We were prepared by bringing our own sleeping bags to sleep on the beds, throws for the sofa and our own hoover for the numerous cobwebs and spiders on the beams. Many of the appliances and furniture are not functional, eg the oven is rusty, the toaster was so filthy it couldn’t be used, the metal beds are rusty and the sofa is way past its best and uncomfortable. It’s such a shame as there is so much potential and some lovely features, it just hasn’t been maintained properly. Also worth noting that some of the amenities listed do not work, for example, the wifi.
