A warm welcome from Diane, Mary and Frank awaits guests to our family home where we aim to offer an excellent personal service throughout your stay with us.
Situated in its own grounds Stanhope Old Hall, which dates back over 800 years to the 12th Century, offers our guests an opportunity to enjoy a stay in an historic Grade Two* listed hall.
Stanhope is situated near the source of the River Wear within the area known as Weardale. This is a landscape of high, wild heather moorland and green settled dales, with tumbling rivers and waterfalls, an internationally important biodiversity and geology and a rich historic environment. Weardale and the surrounding moorland is rated as `An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty`.
Stanhope itself, the `capital of Weardale` is a charming dales village with a friendly and welcoming community and is only a few minutes’ walk from Stanhope Old Hall
There are a selection of shops ranging from the local grocery store, butcher, baker, greengrocer, tea rooms to gift shops and public houses. There are also a number of restaurants including an Italian restaurant in nearby Wolsingham, as well as a selection of `take away` establishments.
For those who enjoy being outdoors and active you can find the tranquil waters of the River Wear running through the village, providing an idyllic backdrop.
