Quartermasters’ is a sunny self-contained flat with its own private access and parking. It has been sensitively modernised from an area last used by the army for their kitchens and retains its historic feel. It sleeps 3 people in a double and a single bedroom with two shower rooms, one en-suite.

The flat is centrally heated throughout and has a strong wi-fi signal. There is a fully equipped kitchen with electric hob and oven and microwave. The sitting room area has a TV with Netflix provided, and a range of terrestrial channels through the internet.

Brancepeth Castle Golf Club is laid out in the former deer park of the castle and is a few minutes’ walk or drive from Quartermaster’s.
