About the location
Barnard Castle 10 miles.
A dale branching off Teesdale, Baldersdale is made up of a small cluster of hamlets and farm dwellings overlooking the reservoirs of Hury, Blackton and Balderhead. Baldersdale came to fame as the home of Hannah Hauxwell, who featured on television in the 1970s for single-handedly running her farm from her home, which had no running water. 'Hannah's Meadow' is now managed by Durham Wildlife Trust as a nature reserve. The village of Romaldkirk is nearby, one of the most unspoilt villages in Teesdale, with pretty greens, old stone cottages, a beautiful old church and two pubs, one of which won AA Pub of the Year for England in 2003 and serves excellent restaurant and bar meals. The area is surrounded by breathtaking Dales countryside and makes an ideal base for walking and touring throughout North Yorkshire and the Yorkshire Dales, with superb fell, flat and river walks and cycle rides available from the doorstep. The northern Lakes and the cities of Durham and Newcastle are all within easy driving distance, whilst the ancient market town of Barnard Castle, with its many historical and cultural attractions, is just a 15 minute drive away.
