About the property

8 - 10 bed house sleeping 20. Games Room, Hot Tub and free Wifi

Fairfield House is a Victorian House which has been renovated from a derelict state to provide boutique hotel style self-catering accommodation for 16 guests in 8 bedrooms.

Stanhope is located in Weardale, on the Coast 2 Coast cycle route. The small town is literally a few minutes walk from the house and has a variety of shops and pubs which can provide everything you may need during your stay. Walk the other way and you are simply a few minutes away from glorious open countryside so you really do get the best of both worlds.

There is also plenty to do in and around the house. There is a large games room with pool table and air hockey, a rough all weather tennis also ideal for 5 aside football and an 8 seater hot tub which, along with the gas BBQ has a covered area and a fire pit.

The ground floor of the house offers a main open plan sitting and dining room with views across the front gardens. There is a TV room and a small snug with a little bar so there is plenty of space to spread out.

The kitchen is spacious with an American sized fridge / freezer, large oven and hob. There is a utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer as well as plenty of storage space for boots and outdoor wet weather clothing.

The first floor offers 3 super king or twin rooms all with en-suite shower rooms. A double / twin room, a double room with en-suite shower and a house shower room. The master bedroom can also be made as super king or large twin beds and has en-suite bathroom, with bath and separate shower.

The second floor offers 2 super king/ large twin rooms sharing a bathroom with bath and overhead shower. There is seating area with sofa/ sofa bed and TV.

The house is set in 1.5 acres of secluded, landscaped gardens, there is a terrace to the rear of the house with water feature, the tennis court is located to the side of the house as is the hot tub and BBQ area. The games room is located in a separate room with TV, pool table and air hockey.

Annexe (above Games Room):-

There are 2 large rooms available at an additional charge. Each room can be made as a twin or king size double. Both rooms have an en-suite with free standing bath and shower. There is also a coffee bar area in each room with a fridge and kettle. Please note: these rooms are not linked internal to the main house.

There are 2 sofa beds, one in the first floor double / twin room and one in the second floor twin room. These are available for 2 children only at £35.00 extra per sofa bed. Please note: The maximum number of guests allowed is 20, 16 in the main house and either 4 guests in the annexe rooms or 2 children sleeping on sofa beds, therefore, the option is either sofa beds or the annexe but not both together.

Wonderful Amazing Weekend. Hot tub, dancing, good food, great friends Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolute blast at Fairfield House. From the outset everything was perfect. The house and gardens are beautiful. We loved every minute, as did our guests.

The bedrooms are lovely the beds are comfortable and huge (and the annex rooms WOW) the kitchen is well stocked they have thought of everything. We managed to cook for 19 with no problems.

All the bathrooms were spotless as was the whole house.

Hot tub was well used, we had great weather so were able to make full use of the gardens, but it wouldn't have mattered as the house is huge, with lots of space for everyone to relax, dance, enjoy.

The village is great with lots of places to eat, drink and shop.

Cycling and walking is also on the doorstep so perfect for anyone wanting to get out and about.

Thank you all for making my Birthday weekend so special

Can't wait to return.

Amazing!! Recommend!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with 13 ladies for my 30th birthday and it was amazing.

We were met by Tracey who showed us around the house and gave us info on working the hot tub etc and then left us to it. The house has absolutely everything you could possibly need and more. We didn't use the games room but it would be fab for a group with kids. It's got a pub near by and walks around the area. Totally recommend for a weekend away!!

An absolutely stunning house that makes you feel extra special!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this house for a group of 12 girls/ladies (aged between 21-50). Everyone was absolutely blown away! It was just stunning. The owners had clearly spent a lot of money renovating the house and the decor was unbelievable. Every room was breath taking! Absolute bonus having an outdoor hot tub which we took advantage of on the Friday night. The house has clearly been well designed for large groups and we made the most of the huge dining table both on the Friday night and Saturday (we made afternoon tea!). We headed into Durham on the Saturday evening (about 40 minutes away) pre-booked taxis with no issue. I would most definitely go back and would make the most of the area by going for some nice walks (our weekend was a little more lively). Anyone looking for a bit of luxury away from the hustle and bustle this is the house for you. I'd also like to thank the company House Parties for being so helpful, great communication and as the designated organiser you made things much easier for me! Thank you x

40th birthday girls weekend

  • 4 of 5

We booked Fairfield house to celebrate my 40th birthday. We were an all female group and all but one room was made into twins thanks to the house keeper who contacted me to arrange in advance. On arrival we were shown around and informed how everything works which was extremely helpful. The house is clean and has very comfortable bedrooms, a huge lounge/kitchen and plenty of room if you want some quiet time. The hot tub was amazing and the games room was an added bonus. The photos online don't do this house justice, it was simply fantastic! The celebratory bottle of fizz was very much appreciated too. The house has everything you need (except for a pizza cutter) for a great weekend away. The village has some lovely little shops and a couple of pubs too.

The only improvement that could be made to the property is to put some outdoor heaters near the hot tub.

Thanks for an amazing weekend which cost less than a nice hotel!!
