About the location
Barnard Castle 3 miles; Middleton in Teesdale 11 miles; Richmond 14 miles; Durham 40 miles.
The pretty Teesdale village of Whorlton 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 grandest 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. The popular market town of Barnard Castle is only 3 miles away, with its own Norman castle plus a wide range of shops, renowned antiques quarter, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants. The Bowes Museum, High Force and Shildon Railway museum are only a short drive, and walkers will enjoy the many trails around Teesdale.
