Christmas Magic

Wonderful xmas touches on arrival. 7 night stay in a fabulous apartment every appliance and cutlery provided for cooking our xmas dinner. Nothing was too much trouble when contacting owner. Grandchildren loved it and all set in a wonderful village. Perfect Christmas

Great stay!

Fabulous apartment exceeded expectations. Lovely touch with welcome basket and robes for the Hot Tub. Huge garden area which would be amazing in the spring/summer months. Very relaxing weekend had by all. Recommendation to look outside of Stanhope if looking for a nice pub lunch or tea room. Pubs and tea rooms we visited in the main street were not of a very good standard (see other reviews). Would highly recommend anyone visiting the area to stay in this apartment.

Very relaxing

Had a lovely 3 night stay at knights corner. Place is spotless. Decor is beautiful. Everything you need is in this place. Hot tub fabulous, only one criticism is that walking back to the apartment it’s in total darkness, lights are required as the ground is uneven. Apart from that I cannot knock this place.

Great holiday

Had a lovely family holiday. Decorated to a high standard. Great touch with a welcome hamper left for us. The hot tub is very clean and well maintained.


Fantastic stay in a beautiful castle located in a lovely village with stunning surrounds. Just over the road from all amenities. All essentials and more included. Would highly recommend.
