When you arrive in the village of Greystoke, you will see two village greens. One has a Sandstone Monument on it, and the other a large flowerbed. You will also see the "Boot & Shoe" pub so if all else fails you can pop in there to get your bearings, but don't worry it's really quite straight forward.
To find us at Stafford House, you will need to drive through the large Sandstone Archway, it actually looks like the Gatehouse as it has a lodge built into the left hand side of it and takes you into the grounds of Greystoke Castle.
There is a sign at the entrance saying "Not Open To The Public" but do not be deterred as it is refering to the Castle itself, which is just a short distance further up the drive from us, so don't worry you are alright to drive under the Archway.
Drive past the first turn on the right which you will see as you come through the archway, and after about 40 yards you will pass over a speed ramp or "Sleeping Policeman". Please take care when driving over it as it is on an angle and rather steep!.
As you go over the ramp, look a little further ahead and you will see the second turn to the right along with a Blue and White sign with "Stafford House" pointing to the right. Turn right, drive across the small wooden railed bridge, down the drive and you are there.
The main entrance to the House is round the other side. So if you follow the main gravel drive to the left of the House and round to the back, you will find the main door about halfway down the back of the house, but we like to come out and greet you on your arrival to show you the way in.
Please be aware that unfortunately we do not allow pets into the main building of
