Charming Originality

  • 5 of 5

Another excellent stay at this beautiful folly. This area is perfect for getting away from it all. Peace & quiet with lovely views.

Plenty of walks for us to explore with the dog.

Your own fairytale castle

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property which is fab both inside and out but also looks out over fields of horses, corn and the sea. For quiet seclusion in a luxurious 'castle', this is perfect.

A perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place to stay. Very comfortable and nicely furnished etc. There are far reaching views over to the North York Moors as it sits on top of Kinley Hill. Weather was wild on one night but felt very cosy inside. Only 10 minutes from civilisation - Pizza Express at Dalton Retail Park - and you are only minutes from the coastal path. Wayne and Yvonne left us a nice basket of goodies too! Will book again if we are in the area.

Beautiful Property, Beautiful Location

Lovely property to stay in. Had everything we needed to make the stay pleasant. Only thing missing was a decent shower but this in no way ruined the holiday for us. In the loveliest location with stunning views. Friendly owners and welcome food/drink basket :). Would certainly recommend

We thoroughly with enjoyed our static central to visit all amenities in the area. I deal for a 5 year old boy lots to see, the farm quarry railway and the beach. Close to digger land beamish and Durham. Nice to return to the peace and quiet in the evening

Travel:

Newcastle Airport is thirty mile away

Distances:

Hawthorn village is two mile away. Seaham is located 4 miles from the property with Durham, Sunderland, Hartlepool and Newcastle all within easy driving distances.

Further Details:

Although Kinley Tower is located rurally all facilities can be reached within easy driving distances, the town of Seaham has had over the years millions spent improving the dock area and also incorporates shopping facilities inc Byron Place and Dalton Park.

Kinley Tower is close to some of the North East's great shore fishing points and also close by, trout angling is available on ponds at Warden Law. With plenty of walking available, historic towns and cities close by and a local pub that serves home cooked food hopefully you'll find lots to explore in the North East of England
