Just returned from spending a couple of nights in the 'romantic medieval retreat' room. It was absolutely stunning and really quirky with a tree in the middle of the kitchen (check out the photos). It was extremely quiet, toasty warm with the log fire on and Nicky the owner was very helpful. The bed was extremely comfortable and the whole place beautifully decorated. The kitchen was high spec with everything you'd need - we cooked in each night. If you go don't miss the walk to Hailshaw Linn waterfall from Billingham which is stunning. Highly recommended.
