Marvellous property with wonderful views - fantastic !!
We had great stay, fantastic little castle with stunning views across the coast and equine neighbours. Beautifully furnished and equipped to a high standard. Lovely welcome package from the hosts which was much appreciated. Lots to see and do and an ideal base for collecting sea washed glass from Seaham Beach. We hope to return
A lovely break from the pressures of work!
The property was amazing - welcoming, warm, and just as described. Fantastic views - and above all, peace and quiet. My friends have already asked if they can go back there when they return to England in 3 years time!
Good location. Had all we needed. Owners helpful and flexible.
This place is a gem! Peaceful and quiet, outstanding views, friendly people and the folly is adorable. Just what we needed to relax and come home to each evening after a day of fresh air. The horses were a huge plus for us! Thank you so much!
Another lovely holiday in 'the castle'.
This is our fourth stay in this lovely folly. It's tastefully decorated throughout with all the home from home amenities. The location is great with plently of walks from the doorstep to explore the surrounding countryside and access to several beaches so close by. Such an interesting area with lots of industrial heritage. Wayne is very knowledgeable of the local area and is always very helpful with directions and places to visit. The only thing we miss is a microwave in the kitchen. Having dogs it isn't always easy to find dog friendly places to eat and if we don't want to 'cook' while on holiday just the smallest basic microwave would be great. Despite this we love the place so much we're already booked in for our next holiday in August. Looking forward to another stay in 'the castle'.
Once again we have totally enjoyed every moment of our stay in this delightful little castle. It is idyllic in its seclusion and tranquility yet perfectly placed for exploring the local area and beyond.
Wayne and Yvonne always make us very welcome and the little welcome basket is a lovely touch.
Beaches and coastline are a twenty minute walk
Newcastle Airport is thirty mile away
Hawthorn village is two mile away. Seaham is located 4 miles from the property with Durham, Sunderland, Hartlepool and Newcastle all within easy driving distances.
Although Kinley Tower is located rurally all facilities can be reached within easy driving distances, the town of Seaham has had over the years millions spent improving the dock area and also incorporates shopping facilities inc Byron Place and Dalton Park.
Kinley Tower is close to some of the North East's great shore fishing points and also close by, trout angling is available on ponds at Warden Law. With plenty of walking available, historic towns and cities close by and a local pub that serves home cooked food hopefully you'll find lots to explore in the North East of England
