Barnard Castle 1 mile.
Stainton is a small village in the unspoilt countryside of Teesdale, in County Durham, just one mile from the market town of Barnard Castle. Consisting of a small group of traditional cottages and boasting lovely views of the surrounding Dales countryside, Stainton is a great rural base for this part of the northern Dales. Barnard Castle stands on the site of an ancient Roman ford which crosses the river. The medieval ruins of the castle still tower over the river and are well worth a visit. Known affectionately as 'Barney' by residents and visitors alike, the town boasts cobbled streets, yards and back lanes which were first laid out in the 12th century. Beautiful walking country is right on the doorstep with The Pennine and Teesdale Ways, the River Tees and magnificent waterfalls at High Force are all within easy reach.

It felt like a home from home.
Mrs Christie, Dunfermline, July 2012
The accommodation was faultless with lots of little added extras. The surroundings were beautiful and peaceful, and there were lots of places nearby to visit.
Ms Crawford, Crewe, June 2012
The homely touches and welcome atmosphere as we walked in for the first time. The cottage we booked was just the icing on the cake to a very special Christmas. The cottage was just perfect, clean and modern with lovely warm touches and a roaring fire what more could you ask for.
