About the location


Barnard Castle 2 miles.

The small village of Boldron is situated in the heart of beautiful Teesdale. Boldron consists of a cluster of stone houses and a few farm dwellings. Beautiful walking country is right on the doorstep, with the Pennine and Teesdale Ways, the River Tees and magnificent waterfall at High Force all close by. The nearby market town of 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 cobble streets, yards and back lanes which were first laid out in the 12th century. Other local attractions include the magnificent Raby Castle in nearby Staindrop, the Bowes Museum, Beamish Open Air Museum, Yorkshire National Railway Museum, Alnwick Gardens and of course Hadrian's Wall, the great Roman frontier across the north of England.

The accommodation was so relaxing and comfortable we spent much of our time enjoying it.

Mrs Upton, Leeds, March 2014

Black Barn stands alone, so the feeling of being way out in the middle of the country is with you. However, you are in fact within the village of Boldron. Excellent location if you enjoy country living and doing lots of walks in some fantastic countryside. Further to this, the accommodation is perfect, everything you could possibly need. Warm and welcoming.

Mrs Francis, Hinckley, February 2014

Fantastic barn conversion in a lovely location - rural and quiet but only a short drive to Barnard Castle with shops, restaurants and the beautiful Bowes Museum and castle. Log burner was great and made the cottage very cosy. Loved the walk-in shower and huge bath! Décor was modern and contemporary yet the cottage still retained that old 'cottagey' feel. Overall a great holiday.

Mr Ellam, Wakefield, January 2014

A lovely cottage in a really nice location with fields all around. Beautiful area. Very well equipped cottage.
