    "Scargill is a beautiful and a very atmospheric place to stay.ideal for romantic breaks and getting away with that special someone.It was very clean and well equipped also the welcome hamper was a great touch.The log burning stove was very cosy.The building has a stone spiral staircase leading to the sitting room and the bedroom at the top. So if you have bad joints or generally unfit you may struggle with it.It just adds to the charm of this amazing place though.Scargill is situated in the grounds of a working farm so working dogs barking at all hours can be heard,also due to the animals outside flies especially in the bedroom can be a bother. We stayed in November so in the summer I guess it could be worse?We perhaps could have done with a bit more local knowledge as to where to walk as we were often unsure as to exactly which track or field to explore as the public footpath signs often led to a dead end up a farmers yard or actually disappear altogether leaving us guessing as to which way to go. But that’s us city folk for you having no idea!! And no way a fault of anyone but ourselves.We had a fab time and enjoyed the fresh air and wildlife. If you want lots to do though then maybe scargill isn’t the place to get it.But it is still a great place. 😁"

    "We looked for somewhere special, romantic and rural to celebrate our anniversary and we were not disappointed. What an amazing place! We arrived when the ground was lightly dusted with snow and the landscape was absolutely breath taking. The personal touches left for us were truly heart warming and welcome as was the generous hamper and treats in the fridge. We enjoyed immensley, the Tudor Banquet. Who would have thought the Tudors would have so much flavour - they could rival with Masterchef. A wonderful experience to add to the whole experience. We relaxed with walks and just taking in all the beauty of Scargill and its surroundings. In the evenings we went to Lumley Castle which was amazing, albeit a little further than anticipated, but well worth the 45-minute drive. The path to Hawksworth is through the gates in front of the cottages, well worth the walk and the snow added to the beauty of the hills, wolds and streams. Thank you for sharing this amazing place.

    "We can from Boston in the USA, via Puglia, Italy and further south from London and Cambridgeshire in England. A magical stay. We had four days of fine weather. We explored the coast - as far away as Seaham and then more local haunts - from a challenging bike ride along Beck's creek and the Greta River, to the Bowes Museum and Barnard Castle - with Eggleston Abbey a stop along the way. But always the highlight was 'coming home' to S41771. The comforts provided - from luxurious bath robes to delicious marmalade. The cosy fires in the living room and equally cosy duvet in the bedroom. And above all, the sense of enjoying history, while being relieved of any of its discomforts! Along with feeling part of the rhythms of life here in the dales. So much gratitude to you, Caroline and Niall for your vision and commitment - and for sharing it with the rest of us - we carry precious memories home with us."

    "One word - WOW! When we pulled up outside and I saw where we were staying, I was godsmacked.... then I came inside and it amazed me even more, everything about this place is amazing, the location, the view, the decor. I could go on but anyone else who comes here will know what I mean. This was meant to be a surprise weekend for my birthday, little did I know an even bigger surprise awaited me, a proposal (and it really was, he was very sneaky! Plus its been 14 years, so I'd given up on it ever happening). We've done a couple of walks while we've been here - Low force and the small one in the folder and they were both delightful. Visited High force very nice and the bengal merchant in Barnard Castle which was recommended. Thanks to the owners, it has truly been wonderful and we will definitely come back. JS, Wakefield"

    "S41771 was everything we wanted it to be and more. The 'extra' thoughtful touches were very much appreciated. The castle was our protection against the roaring winds that circled most nights. We sat happily though, in front of the welcoming log burner with tudor music in the background whilst reading from the array of books on the shelf. We really enjoyed the tudor banquet that Rachel made for us on New Year's Eve and brought the New Year in wearing the very important crowns, we did indeed feel like a King and Queen of S41771. We've enjoyed walking in the area and have seen some beautiful landscapes. Back to Derbyshire now and return to the routines of life but we will never forget our week of escapism in a wonderful place called S41771. Thank you to everyone who contributed to making it a very special place."
