I booked a weekend break at Staffield Hall, advertised as a luxuary stay. We were in the Butlers loft which was find except rather gloomy beacuse the windows were too high to see through when sat down. The apartment was cold and there was not heat in the storage radiators so I was glad to find a portable heater in the wardrobe. We ended up using this the whole time as we couldn't adjust the storage radiators to come on when we wanted. Who wants to spend their weekend trying to figure out the heating?
Another niggle was the fridge door which wouldn't stay shut and the can opener was shot. The worst thing was the bed. The mattress was rock hard and when I investigated it found it to be a cheap mattress that was often on offer because it had such bad reviews. The reviews indicated that it was very uncomfortable. This was such a pity as it spoiled our stay.
The setting of the hall was lovely and is worth spending some time there. There were also several thigs to do and see and the area; We enjoyed Long Meg and her daughters, The Settle to Carlisle line and the road to Alston. Most of all i enjoyed quiet time in the garden sketching the lovely surroundings.
Despite warnings we had no trouble with the wi-fi and got an acceptable mobile signal in the car park. So for the sake of a few pounds what could have been a excelent review was just average.
