Barnard Castle 5 miles; Durham 20 miles.
The pretty Teesdale village of Staindrop has always been closely associated with the fortunes of nearby Raby Castle and its owners. The Castle (open to the public) is one of the most grand in England. Enlarged and beautified over the centuries, the medieval heart remains and a walled garden and 200 acre deer park add to the splendour. Staindrop has many interesting shops, pubs and cafes set round its long village green. The popular market town of Barnard Castle is 5 miles away, with its castle, the Bowes Museum, plus of course its wide range of shops and tea rooms. Walkers will enjoy the many walks around Teesdale.

Really excellent standard of accommodation with everything you could possibly need.
Miss Dodd, Frodsham, October 2012
Homely atmosphere achieved by the owner's art works in the lounge and bathroom. I particularly enjoyed the wide open landscape view from the lounge window so we could view sunsets and changes in the weather.
Mr Smithson, York, September 2012
Cottage was first class. The owners were very helpful. Very warm! Very clean! Very cosy! We will be visiting the area again in the future, and will book Anvil Cottage if available.
