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.

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.

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.

Previous visitors' comments about Stables Cottage:
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
Very safe for our toddler - an enclosed patio area, no steps, counter-level oven, safety feature on hobs etc. Knowing he was safe to run around and enjoy himself made our holiday! Our son also enjoyed seeing the chickens and using the play equipment.
Mrs Shaw, Welwyn Garden City, June 2012
The cottage was in easy reach of towns and countryside. The owner provided a small welcome pack of milk etc and was very helpful and on hand if required.
