    • “Been there 3 times and will stay again. Everything works, very clean and comfortable, in a very pretty part of the world. Owners (and their dogs) very friendly. Good pub too. Close to Barnard Castle and convenient to Durham, Newcastle and Teeside/Middlesborough. Nothing negative to report except, if you like to cook, bring a sharp knife.”

    Mrs Cordingley, Isle Of Mull, July 2015

    • “We were greeted with a warm welcome when we arrived. The hospitality continued throughout our stay. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners. They were very informative, helpful and friendly. We were also included in the villages events and met some very nice local people, which made our holiday a little bit more special. We would return in a heartbeat, and would recommend anyone to stay in this lovely village.”

    Mrs Guyett, Narberth, June 2015

    • “A lovely cosy cottage with beautiful views, sheep and rabbits in the field at the bottom of the garden! Well-equipped with lots of lovely thoughtful touches. The owners were very friendly and helpful. There were lots of things to do in the area, and beautiful walking country.”

    Ms Baldwin, Manchester, April 2015

    • “The Cottage was warm and had a great garden and location for the dog as well. We will be returning.”

    Miss Nolan, Hull, November 2014

    • “We had a lovely stay in this delightful cottage. The gardens are gorgeous and the house very clean and comfortable. Three nights was not really enough. Nice linen and comfy beds with everything you need in the kitchen. The owners are on hand next door and are very welcoming, friendly and very happy to have a dog in their property. The community pub is worth a visit too, just a few yards away! We would recommend this little gem of a place for a nice relaxing break.”

    Mrs Baggs, Macclesfield, October 2014

    • “This was our fourth stay and as usual, we had a lovely time. The owners always welcome us with essentials. It's no wonder Stable Cottage feels like our home-away-from-home. We'll be back.”

    Mr Graham, Basingstoke, October 2014

    • “Lovely quaint cottage, friendly and warm welcome. Very dog friendly with fabulous walks nearby and within a short drive there was castle Barnard riverside walk and high force which were a real highlight. The cottage garden was very generous in size and maintained beautifully. The peace and quiet of the cottage and village was lovely and relaxing. Thanks to the lovely owners for a great stay, and the fresh orange juice!”

    Mrs Fitzpatrick, Saltburn-by-the-Sea, September 2014

    • “The owners couldn't have been more welcoming. The cottage is in a lovely quiet spot but has easy access to amenities. We thought is was very good value for money.”

    Ms Talbot, Cheltenham, September 2014

    • “The owners are very friendly and helpful and full of local information on tourist venues, giving their opinion on the best places to visit, supplying maps, leaflets etc. The property is in a lovely village setting. The cottage is like a home from home, very relaxing and the surrounding area is beautiful, with lots to explore. We would certainly recommend this property and will most probably be making a return visit. Full marks to the owners for making us feel so welcome.”

    Mrs Wrigglesworth, Leeds, August 2014

    • “Lovely property, in a gorgeous location. Exactly what we were looking for. We would definitely like to visit again and would recommend to family and friends. The garden was perfect.”

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 fort, 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.
