About the location
Barnard Castle 15 miles; Durham 20 miles.
Heighington is a small village in the unspoilt countryside of Teesdale, in County Durham, 15 miles from Barnard Castle, 20 miles from the magnificent cathedral city of Durham. Consisting of a small group of traditional cottages, four pubs and a Norman Church, and boasting lovely views of the surrounding Dales countryside, Heighington is a great rural base for this part of the northern Dales. Barnard Castle is known affectionately as 'Barney' by residents and visitors alike, and boasts shops and eateries laid out over cobbled streets, yards and back lanes. A trip to Durham with its majestic castle and cathedral is a must, as is a visit to the wild and rugged northern fells of Yorkshire and Cumbria. Nearby attractions include Raby Castle, Eggleston Abbey, Rokerby Hall, Hadrians Wall and Northumberland Coast. In 2006 Heighington was judged from amongst 11 other villages around the UK to be the BBC's Perfect Village.
