In addition to the spacious Master Bedroom suite on the first floor with a mezzanine, ensuite bathroom and south-facing balcony, the house has a ground floor wing. Rooms in this part of the house overlook the beautiful, private gardens and the 3 double bedrooms next to the house bathroom means that 2 families can enjoy lots of space and privacy. Decorated to a high standard, with hardwood flooring and 300 year old listed sandstone pillars in the impressive entrance hall, the Coach House is stylishly furnished and very well equipped. You will enjoy fast broadband internet access; high quality hi-fi in the lounge for music lovers; very well equipped kitchen with a 5 burner gas hob in addition to the Aga, NEFF combination microwave and electric fan oven, juicer, bread maker, ice cream maker, 2 fridges, dishwasher, qualiy stereo and beautiful garden views.

Northern England region

The Dairy Cottage is situated in peaceful, rolling countryside between the River Swale and the Tees, on the ancient site of the impressive 2000 year old Brigantes settlement. There is an abundance of historical monuments within 20 minutes' drive - castles, abbeys, earthworks, villages and towns to name but a few. Walkers will love the Yorkshire Dales, England's largest and most impressive National Park is just 15 minutes' drive away and the Lake District is just over an hour's drive with sailing, hiking, wind surfing and much more. Enjoy horse riding from the nearby stables (you can walk there!) on the perfect network of bridleways or play a round of golf at the nearby course at Richmond in the middle of beautiful countryside. Going slightly further afield, explore the stunning North Yorkshire coastline and enjoy the delights of Whitby, just over an hour's drive from here, or take a trip up the A1 for 40 minutes to a worldclass concert at the Sage Gateshead or a contemporary art exhibition at the Baltic.


One of the best pubs in the area is a pleasant stroll along country footpaths to the Stanwick- here you'll find excellent, home-cooked food and real ales, some of which are brewed right here in the village. The beautiful market town of Richmond is 8 miles away and has an ancient catle and abbey, swimming pool, tennis courts, golf course, cinema, full range of shops selling local produce, quality restaurants and beautiful riverside walks in National Trust woodland. There is a lively Arts scene in Darlington, 8 miles away, and in May-June, the Swaledale Festival attracts musicians from all over the country. Stanwick itself has one of the largest ancient monuments in the UK, the Stanwick Camp, site of the ancient Brigantes headquarters over 2000 years ago. There are so many walks directly from the Dairy Cottage that you don't need to get into your car for the whole of your stay, making this the most relaxing place to come and get away from all the pressures of modern living without sacrificing any of the comforts.
