"We've been a few times now & enjoyed it each…"
We've been a few times now & enjoyed it each time. Traditionally the place Bobby Shaftoe lived with his wife, It now houses a hotel,deer park & small lake in which some of the remains of the original house can be seen. There is also a country garden to look around & a family pub/restaurant which serves fantastic Sunday lunches & international food. Incorporated into the pub building is Bobby Shaftoes play barn ( a soft play & outdoor play area) which children can play in for a small fee. You can take along your own carrots to give to the deers who are very tame & happy to eat out of your hand or you can buy bags of food in the play barn. The ducks in the lake are also happy to accept a crust or two! A really nice place with beautiful gardens located in Spennymore County Durham you can easily spend an hour or two here.Read moreLess
