“I booked Fairfield House to celebrate my 40th birthday with a group of friends. It honestly is a gorgeous house. The pictures don’t do it justice. Spotlessly clean. Every bedroom is lovely. No one in the group felt like they’d been left with the worst room as they are all beautifully decorated. The house itself is very spacious and even with 16 of us there was so much room. We weren’t on top of each other at all. The games room and hot tub provided lots of entertainment for everyone. It has a well equipped kitchen. Really couldn’t ask for anything better. We’d like to come back in the summer to make more of the outdoor space and have talked about coming back every year as none of us could imagine finding anything better. Thanks for letting us stay in your wonderful house.”

  • I stayed at Fairfield House last weekend with a group of 16 people and we could not have asked for a better experience. The house was even better than the descriptions, complete with interior design reflecting modern British charm and some delightful extras, such as home baked bread on arrival, games and apparatus for the grounds and union jack towels for the hot tub. Everything about Fairfield was simply exquisite. The property was extremely clean and well maintained, and they had even collected some pre-ordered packages for me before my arrival. This is good for groups of adults, children and families alike. The customer service provided was excellent, we had full information and communication at all times and it was very easy to deal with all staff. I would recommend this property to anyone looking to have a weekend that is as fun and as relaxing as you make it. The surrounding countryside and quarry nearby is also breath taking.


  • What a special place Fairfield House is! Just spent an absolutely wonderful family weekend there and loved every minute of our short stay. From the beautiful decor in the bedrooms to the fantastic kitchen, huge dining room and lounge, to the lovely lawn where we held our family games, the tennis court and well equipped games room, to the superb deck area complete with fire pit and hot tub and even a brand new dog hotel for our four legged friends, Fairfield Hotel has it all! A lovely relaxing weekend spent in beautiful surroundings – thank you so much! We’ll definitely be back!


  • Just had the most fabulous weekend stay at Fairfield House! It was a surprise party for my “Special” birthday. The house is absolutely stunning and so comfortable. Nothing has been forgotten and great care has been taken to ensure that you will enjoy your stay no matter the weather. There were 16 in our party and with the tennis court, hot tub and superb games room no one was ever without something to do. We even had outside kennels for our 4 dogs! Wonderful place! I highly recommend it and shall certainly be having a return visit!


  • We had a fabulous time at Fairfield House. The house is exceptional in many ways, and is about 10 times more comfortable, tasteful, relaxing and entertaining than anywhere else we have ever stayed on the C2C over the last 10 years. We would highly recommend Fairfield House to any Group, Family or Club looking for something extra special in the beautiful Weardale.


  • The rest of the Group were bleeding ecstatic ! They are used to roughing it in a bunkhouse or at best getting a room in a slightly tired B&B with dodgy plumbing, grannies furniture and musty carpets. Fairfield blew them away with the care, quality and flair that is so apparent in every single detail. And the outside seating, BBQ, hot tub area was about as perfect a place as you could imagine for our tired group to relax with a few beers and burgers. As it was so very hot already, only a few sampled the hot tub, whilst a few others played tennis and the rest just soaked it all in. You have pretty much thought of everything


  • Hello Paula, Just a short mail to thank you for your gift, also to let you know everything was absolutely perfect even the weather- we had glorious sunshine all weekend, a heavy rainfall this morning but soon brightened up. Perfect weekend with our family and real quality time together. Definitely recommend! Thanks again.


  • We stayed at Fairfield House a weekend in July, what an amazing place. Right from the start the booking was effortless which was no mean feat trying to organise 16 people and 4 dogs. The attention was unbelievable right down to the housekeeper texting me the night before our arrival to say everything was in order. The facilities were fabulous tennis courts, games room and hot tub not to mention the house itself. The interior design is absolutely fabulous with 8 huge bedrooms most with ensuite, I guarantee you will want to redecorate your own home after visiting this place. The gardens are extensive, we played croquet on the lawn ,tennis, netball, badminton, rounders and of course football all equipment supplied. Everything was to the highest standard imaginable even down to the” doggy hotel” which was a two roomed kennel with run ..I cannot recommend this highly enough and we will definitely return.


  • Just stayed at Fairfield this weekend for friends surprise party, was totally amazing, will recommend, had a brill time.


  • Had a great week in Fairfield House and loved Weardale followed by a dip in the hot tub.


  • I just wanted to drop you an email to say what a wonderful weekend we had at Fairfield. The house is absolutely gorgeous and what incredible surroundings, we couldn’t have asked for anything more perfect on an autumnal weekend such as this. Thank you for all your help in booking and for all the additional information you provided. Special thanks to Jacob for hanging around waiting for me to arrive on Friday night, it is much appreciated.


  • Stayed for a weekend for a firend’s birthday, wonderful place in a great location.


  • Stayed with 15 friends for my birthday. Had an amazing time, decor is gorgeous and enjoyed our stay.


  • Fab place. Will be back!


  • What a treat. Ab Fab!


  • What an amazing property and what a superbway of celebrating my 50th with ladies in the hot tub. Thank you paula for the chocs, proseco and card. Very kind gesture. We will be definately returning again!


  • We stayed for a full week at Christmas with all the family (16 of us). Weather wet and very windy but it didn’t matter as we enjoyed the house & managed to make the most of all the rooms, including the dog house! The hot tub was great & the games room proved to be a big hit with all the family – ages ranging from 12 to 87! We would love to come back in the summer & make full use of the outside facilities, BBQ etc.


  • Thank you for a great week. We have all had a fantastic time despite the weather. We think it is an amazing house with high class decor and fittings.


  • Thank you, Excellent.


  • What a wonderful house and surroundings! Top quaility weekend, would love to stay in the summer.


  • Beautiful property, fantastic renovation, great place.


  • Lovely place in a great location. Amazing hot tub.


  • Amazing house in a glorious setting. Had a fabulous weekend. Wine and birthday card a nice touch for Emma’s birthday. Dissapointed we couldn’t find the rennovation DVD, we were looking forward to seeing it.


  • An amazing venue for 30th birthday celebration. The wow factor the house has didn’t wear off.


  • Beautifully renovated Victorian property, very spacious and tastefully furnished situated in attractive grounds and with plenty of parking. Facilities were second to none, something for everyone here and our party age range was from 12 to 83! The younger generation were particularly well catered for with the well equipped games room, in fact we hardly saw them all weekend! The village of Stanhope is lovely, we had a stroll around by the river and called in at the arts & crafts centre to purchase locally hand made chocolates and soap for souvenirs. Paula, the property owner was very helpful and recommended several places for us to visit/eat – just wish we had had more time to do so! Would definitely like to go back again in the future.


  • Another big thank you for a fabulous holiday. We had a wonderful stay and my Dad coped admirably and was very touched by your gift ,so thank you on his behalf. The weather was great , windy but dry and we managed all our outdoor games ,even managed a seat in the sunshine. We all commented on how little the house has been affected by so many people having visited since our last stay , well done to you and your team . We can’t wait till our next trip and we all decided there doesn’t need to be to be as excuse. We had our pub lunch in the Black Bull on Sunday and it couldn’t have been better. They were extremely attentive and accommodating, the food was delicious. We had a couple of friends from Hexham join us and they managed to have us all together in the same room, it was great .

    It was nice to meet Simon and hopefully we will meet you on our next trip. I hope we left the house in good order. It was hard to leave


  • I just wanted to say thank you for letting us rent out your wonderful property – we had an amazing time. My sisters and I lost our Dad 18 months ago and our Mum 6 months later so this was a really important break for us and our families and I think we chose the perfect place. We had so much fun together hiking, playing netball, football, tennis, rounders and Jenga as well as all the games in the games room –  I know it’s a cliché, but we really did have quality family time. The rooms are all beautiful and we loved the unusual furniture around the house. We particularly loved the hot tub, especially good for relieving aching muscles after all that exercise. Thank you for the recommendation of the Italian restaurant, the kids loved it and we had a really lovely and reasonable meal.  Best wishes and thanks again.


  • As I sit here back at home reflecting, I just wanted to thank you again for our amazing few days at Fairfield. The family and particularly dad whose birthday we were there to celebrate, were bowled over by the place and we were able to do everything we had planned from our fancy dress party on Friday night to the games competition and BBQ on Saturday. We certainly made good use of all that the house has to offer!

    The fabulous new rooms above the games room were perfect for mum and dad and my aunt and uncle and gave them a bit of ‘space’ from the rest of the hordes when they wanted it! The rooms were fab – I don’t think we’ve ever had such beautiful accommodation! 🙂

    Anyway, Paula, you can be assured that we all had the best time ever and Fairfield House certainly sets the bar extremely high. I appreciate Simon coming out so promptly about the lights and I’m sorry in my panic I had to call you about the alarm – I should have read your notes first! I’m already wondering when I can book our next visit…

    PS. (Dad says thank you very much for the bottle of bubbly – a kind thought.)


  • Yes everything at the wedding was absolutely perfect and we wanted to thank you so much for agreeing to us having our wedding there. It was everything we wanted and more and everyone commented on how beautiful the setting was.
    I also wanted to say what fabulous staff you have. They are all so welcoming and friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. Please pass on our thanks to them as well.
