The Gathering Place

Please note: There are two houses being built in this area. There may be some disruption and the tennis courts and children's play area are currently inaccessible. Building planned until approximately April 2020.


  • Table Tennis
  • Barbecue
  • Tennis court
  • Hot Tub
  • Play frame
  • Catering can be arranged

Inside the Gathering Place you can play games on the wii, table tennis or sit and read a book.

You may want to use it when you are barbequing and need somewhere warm inside to sit down.

You may also want to hide in it if you need somewhere bigger than the individual cottages.

Catering can be easily arranged if you wish. In order to find out how to get in, ring the Grace Darling Office on 01665 721 332 and we will be happy to help you in any way we can. Enjoy!

Tennis Court

The new all-weather tennis Court at Dukesfield is now available. Guests are invited to reserve 90 minute slots in the diary which will be located beside the tennis court. We recommend that all guests book in advance to avoid schedule clashes.

Hot Tub

The Everyday 530 hot tub at Dukesfield has just arrived and can accommodate up to 6 people. Surrounding the tub is a 1mtr wide platform which extends to meet the existing stone/gravel path. Also with the tub there is an open sided cedar gazebo and deck surrounding.

Play Frame

The new playframe guarantees hours of fun for children and is ideally located beside the Dukesfield tennis court so you can keep an eye on things. The frame includes a slide, swing, watch tower, drawbridge and see saw.
