About the location


Barnard Castle 8 miles.

The village of Hamsterley sits on the brow of a hill between Teesdale and Weardale, on the edge of the North Pennines. Boasting an old village pub, where basic provisions can be purchased, the village is just two miles from Hamsterley Forest, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which covers 2000 hectares of mixed woodland and has an abundance of wildlife. The Forest Visitor Centre, complete with tea rooms, provides visitors with a wealth of information on the many activities available in the forest, including splendid walking, cycling and horse riding trails to suit all levels of expertise. Cycling enthusiasts will be well catered for with the Hamsterley Forest mountain bike downhill trail which has some of the steepest slopes in the UK, together with miles of cross country routes. The forest runs alongside the Bedburn Beck for four miles, providing access to grassy picnic sites and a play area for children, and also stages a wide range of events and activities every Summer, from wildlife watches to theatre performances. With Raby Castle nearby and the delightful market town of Barnard Castle, with its medieval castle ruins and delightful cobbled streets, just 8 miles away, this is an ideal holiday location.

This is a beautiful cottage in beautiful surroundings. The welcome pack was comprehensive and the home made cake was delicious. It was so nice that you could sit in doors and look out at the rolling Northumbrian countryside and do little else! A real home from home and very relaxing. We will definitely return, soon!

Mrs Murphy, Bedford, December 2013

This is the second time we have stayed at South Byre. The cottage has everything you could ever need. It is spotlessly clean. The owners are extremely helpful. The surrounding countryside is beautiful. We would love to return, and would definitely recommend to friends and family.
