Our second visit to Desmond House and it is just as impressive as the first time. We have loved our stay and only wish we could stay longer. We visited Raby castle, well worth a visit and spent a lot of time over the road at the stream with the children. Seeing wild deer in the woods was a delight.

Have very much enjoyed staying in this well-equipped, comfortable cottage. There is so much to see and do in this area. Fabulous walks from the door with good pubs for refreshing.

Had a lovely week exploring this part of the country. House warm and cosy – just what you need after long walks and bike rides and plenty of hot water. Hope to be back.

Gorgeous house. We immediately felt at home. Loved sitting on the front bench drinking tea and enjoying the afternoon sunshine. Super walks to Low Force then High Force.

Well done for the superb renovation of Desmond House: it has a very comfortable, cosy ambience. The property offers excellent facilities and is furnished to a very high standard; it met all our requirements – ‘ home from home’. The location is exquisite: providing beautiful, tranquil walks; a friendly village and stunning views from the house. The spectacular High and Low force waterfalls are definitely worth a visit. Hamsterly Forest provides a fun-filled, action-packed family day out (for children and adults alike!). Thank you.

Beautiful house in an amazing location. The wooded area opposite the house has some lovely walks and a stream which was great for the kids to play in with their wellies on. Plenty of places to eat out within walking distance and the Co-Op was handy too for meals at home. We loved waking up in the morning to see fields of sheep before venturing out. Everything we could ever need was provided for a perfect relaxing holiday. We cherished every minute here and will be back this summer!
