The Property

Whorlton 2 miles. Situated on a former farm near the village of Whorlton, 3 miles from Barnard Castle, Stables Cottage is an imaginative conversion of an old stone stable. Care has been taken to convert the building to ensure a high quality holiday cottage, retaining original features and character throughout. Picture windows offer wonderful views over the lower reaches of the Teesdale valley, there is underfloor heating throughout, and guests can relax in the small private courtyard. With the owners on hand to ensure a warm and comfortable stay, and an outdoor play area for children, this property is an ideal Whorlton cottage for a family holiday exploring nearby Teesdale, Durham and the Yorkshire Dales. To the rear is open farmland with a bridleway accessible from the cottage, and there is much walking in the area. Visit Raby Castle, High Force, the National Railway Museum Shildon, or enjoy the tea rooms, shops and restaurants in Barnard Castle, which also houses a leisure centre with swimming pool, gym, soft play area and indoor climbing wall for the more energetic.

About the location

Whorlton

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.

Great cottage - lovely and quiet, no hassles. Can't wait to stay there again one day!

Neeson, Tamworth, August 2013

Comfortable cottage with lots of up to date kitchen equipment. We liked the under floor heating. Also the lovely lemon cake that the owner left for us!

Mrs Mifsud, Aylesbury, May 2013

The property was all on one level and not allowing pets and smoking was ideal for anyone with access difficulties and allergies.

Mr Jowett, Leeds, July 2012

The accommodation exceeded our expectations and the welcome we received was very cordial. The accommodation was central to the places we had planned to visit and there were other suggestions available in the cottage if we had run out of ideas.

Mr Thompson, Abingdon, June 2012
