Win the Wolsey Lodges prize for December. This is a two-night weekday stay for two at Dowfold House, a multi-award-winning luxury B&B in Weardale, just outside Durham. Built in the 1860’s by John Pease, the first Quaker MP, for his senior mine managers, Dowfold House is a hugely welcoming place where guests can bring their children, their dogs, and even – thanks to stabling next door – even their horses. Rupert and Jill are delightful hosts who love entertaining guests and sharing their love of the region.
At Dowfold House guests are free to bask on the patio, laze in the conservatory or relax on a sofa by the open fire. The extensive gardens are known for their flower borders, views over the Wear Valley and manicured lawns, ideal for games of croquet or boules.
There are three comfortable and well-equipped bedrooms here, all ensuite. Breakfast is invariably a highlight, with local ingredients – many from Dowfold House’s own vegetable garden – served in our elegant dining room.
There’s plenty to do in the area. The city of Durham is less than 20 minutes away, and Newcastle, Sunderland and the Durham Coast are within easy reach. The village of Crook, where Dowfold House is situated, is a gateway to the Durham Dales and the North Pennines AONB.
A two-night stay at Dowfold House for two consecutive nights for two in a twin or double room – with Kingsize or Superking bed
Breakfast each morning of your stay
Choose a take-away gift from Dowfold House’s home-produced goodies. A jar of home-made marmalade or jam, a home-baked loaf, a pack of its famed potato bread, or a bottle of apple juice, made using our own apples by a local social enterprise.
The prize is to be taken before August 2023, excluding weekends, Easter and Bank Holidays (all of which are pretty much booked anyway), is subject to availability and is not transferable. Competition entrants have the opportunity on the tiebreak page to opt in to our mailing list.
