Attended a three hour knitting workshop booked via Living Social Deals. Ann, the teacher, was very patient and obviously an expert at knitting. The class had a lovely friendly atmosphere. I really enjoyed learning how to knit again. Ann volunteered her home phone number in case my first attempts ended in disaster and i needed advice. Such a lovely lady.... More

Weardale provided exactly the right atmosphere for our country retreat. Consummate host, roaring fire, hearty grub - couldn't really have asked for more.

I've been lucky enough to visit Coves House a number of times and it is one of my favourite places in the North East. Everyone at the house and centre are very friendly and welcoming and the views are breathtaking. I wholeheartedly recommend a visit to anyone!

This was an exceelent weekend. The views from the centre are amazing and the accomodation we were provided with was excellent. The staff are friendly and approachable and they will adapt their packages to your needs. This is an excellent location for outdoor activities or team building weekends. I will definitely be staying again.

Breath taking panoramic views surround the estate helping to clear your lungs from the smog of city life. A beautiful house with a fantastic host who indulged us with a 5 course feast! For a fun packed hen weekend with a difference this is the place to go! Off road driving, laser tag shooting and gossiping by the fire into... More

Will Parker is the perfect host. He strikes the perfect balance between militant organisation and making you feel at ease and well looked after. Coves is simply beautiful. It was my first time in that part of the world and Coves seems to humbly boast all the quirks and characteristics of the desirable English countryside. Friends, fresh air and an... More
