Welcome to Millstone House

Escape to the Picturesque Village of Staindrop

Gary and Helen look forward to extending you a very warm welcome.

Millstone House  is a high end, adult only Bed and Breakfast, which can be found on the outskirts of the historic village of Staindrop, County Durham.

There are many great destinations on our doorstep, for example, Raby Castle is only a 3 minute drive, inside 10 minutes you can find yourself visiting places such as Barnard Castle, a 20 minute drive will take you to Bishop Auckland or Darlington and Durham City is only a half hour drive away.

If it is a weekend treat or a longer relaxing getaway you are looking for, then Millstone House is the perfect setting for your tranquil stay in our luxurious Bed and Breakfast. 

Millstone House can also be used as a great base for visiting an array of amazing places further afield including places like the Yorkshire Dales, the Lake District, the east coast and York. If you fancy some retail therapy then the Metrocentre in Gateshead is less than an hours drive away.

We are also ideally located for visiting fantastic local attractions like Kynren (June-Sept), Locomotion at Shildon, the Bowes Musuem, Beamish - the Living Museum of the North, and also events at Raby Castle, The Witham in Barnard Castle and The Scarth Hall in Staindrop. 

There is ample free on-site secure parking. All of our bedrooms are located on the groundfloor (see our access statement for further information).  

Although we love all our four legged friends, it is with regret that we do not accept any pets at Millstone House.

Check-in time is between 3pm to 6pm on the day of arrival (please see terms and conditions for futher information).

Millstone House offers three large luxury bedrooms, en-suite facilities, TV, free WIFI, hairdryer, luxury toiletries, bathrobes and super king beds.

Bedroom One

This west facing bedroom overlooks a garden shrubbery, where you may see our resident Hens roaming freely about their home environment.

Bedroom Two

This south facing room looks out over unspoilt views of the lower Teesdale Countryside.

Bedroom Three

Just like bedroom two, this south facing room is delightful catching the morning sun and looking out over unspoilt views of the lower Teesdale Countryside.

Equal To Any Five Star Plus Hotel

The property is in a rural location and is equal to any five staff plus hotel we have ever stayed in worldwide.

There are B&B's and then there are B&B's. But this is simply world class, wherever in that world you have landed for overnight accommodation. Great location, superb hosts, space, excellent beds, teccy stuff for those that want it and spotlessly clean.

Exquisite Luxurious Stay

This is not just a B&B ... This is an Extraordinary B&B. It far surpasses anywhere we have stayed in the Country. The location is amazing, tucked away in the lovely village of Staindrop, down a lane which transforms you to wonderful views over fields and tranqulity. If you want the BEST then look no further.

1 Night Stay

Millstone House is beautifully decorated and the architecture falls in with the surrounding countryside. We will definitely be staying again.

From the moment we were greeted at the door by Gary and Helen we were blown away with the whole experience. If you are ever visiting Staindrop or the local area, we highly recommend you stay at Millstone House. You most certainly will not be disappointed.

Better Than Most 5 Star Hotels

We stayed two nights and were very impressed. It was extremely comfortable with excellent attention to detail. If all B&B's were this good then we would never go to a hotel again.

I wish I could rate this accommodation a 6*, it was immaculate. This is by far the best B&B we have ever stayed in. Huge comfy bed, latest gadgets and 24hr access to high quality tea and coffee. We will definitely be returning.

Outstanding B&B

We have just spent the weekend at this fresh, modern and beautifully appointed B&B in the heart of Co. Durham countryside. Thanks for a great stay, we can't recommend you highly enough.

The Ultimate B&B

Breakfast... WOW...fruit, yogurt, croissants, patries and an amazing choice of cooked breakfasts. There is plenty to do in the area, we visited beautiful Barnard Castle, spectacular High Force Waterfall and the fascinating Raby Castle which is a walk or bike ride away from Millstone House.

Don't hesitate to book, you will not be disappointed!
