Background history of Stanhope Morningside Cottage

Stanhope Morningside is situated on the former farm buildings of Newfield Farm, the 170 acre hill farm was worked by the owners family from 1960 until 2003. The holiday cottage was formerly a cowbyre where milk was collected morning and night every day of the year.

In 2003 the farm buildings were demolished by the landlords with the exception of the main farmhouse and adjoining cowbyres. The distinctive haybarns and cattle sheds were removed and developers built the houses at the rear of the farm.

Donna and William Stobbs have developed the farm buildings for their current use. Location of the accommodation is two minutes walk to the town centre of Stanhope. Stanhope has three taxi services and an excellent bus service for those who wish to travel in the area (No service on bank holidays or Sundays). The town is at the centre of Weardale and is in a good position for those who wish to see the North East of England and explore its surrounding areas. 

The main cowbyre has been split into two units Granary and Dairy
