Peaceful and relaxing break

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our peaceful and relaxing break, the tower was immaculately clean and very spacious, had all the facilities needed.

It was well heated and a lovely welcome pack was waiting for us from Wayne and Yvonne, who were also very helpful and freindly.

we didn't have the best weather, but had the relaxing break that was needed, there are lovely walks around the area and your not too far from Seaham where there is dog friendly beaches and nice Indian takeaways and plenty of supermarkets/shops, will deffinatley book to stay again.

WoW. Beautifully restored folly

  • 5 of 5

Just what was needed for a stress free break. Nicely secluded but within a 10min drive of Seaham. There is a beautiful walk that takes you through Hawthorn Dene ( managed by English nature ) and leads you to a nice secluded beach. The folly has been beautifully restored to a high standard and Yvonne and Wayne were very helpful and attentive. We will definitely be booking again when in the area and would highly recommend this property.

What an amazing cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We booked on a whim and having never visited C.Durham we were unfamiliar with the area but had a marvellous few days. During the 3 days prior to our visit Wayne and Yvonne were really helpful and answered all our questions positively, especially about taking the dogs. The property was spotless and the welcome hamper was superb. We settled in and then drove to Seaham. On our return we were delighted to meet Wayne who had popped in to make sure everything was as we had hoped. Although the weather was mixed the Folly was not draughty and the heating allowed us to settle in the evening in a warm, comfortable environment. The furniture, especially the bed, was comfortable and in excellent condition.

In the 4 days we visited Beamish, Durham and the Dockyard at Hartlepool; collected sea glass; walked miles with the dogs and met some genuinely hospitable people.

5 stars are not enough.

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
