    • “Stayed here for a midweek break mid July. A very well equipped cottage, nice quiet surroundings in a lovely village. Owner lives next door although was away when we stayed so had some friends looking after guests, the hosts were lovely! The owner has an amazing garden with a gorgeous dog and a few cats scattered around! Cottage has all you could need and added extra's too. Lots of lovely walks to do nearby along the tessdale way, an old railway line now converted for walkers, very safe for dogs too. The owner supplies an excellent guide on things to do and places to stay. We look forward to visiting again”

    • “A comfortable unwind”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “The upstairs flat was well fitted and the decor was cosy and "country comfortable". The views were lovely and peaceful. We brought our 1 year old son with us, and it was perhaps a bit too cramped with the required cot and high chair... but the weather was nice, so we indulged in the bbq as much as possible. Nice walks in the area, and the quality of the food in the local pub was second to none.”

    • “Bijou retreat in lovely village”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Henberry is the upstairs level of a small barn conversion. It is an ideal retreat for two and is priced correctly for this size of accommodation. If you want more room, be prepared to pay accordingly. Access is up an old stone staircase with entry directly into the living room/kitchen area. The bedroom is compact with a normal sized en-suite beyond.I found the bed to be particularly comfortable. Every room is tastefully decorated and fitted out. The owners are very friendly and helpful - they live in the main house next door and were there if we needed them but left us happily to ourselves most of the time. The village has a popular, though quite expensive, pub / restaurant. There are other places within easy reach up and down the valley. Romaldkirk itself is delightful - pretty village greens and church. The location is great for walking - the Tees Valley Way passes right by the cottage. We hardly used the car all week, preferring to walk straight out of the door into the lovely surrounding countryside.”

    • “Perfect little cottage in idyllic surroundings. Clean, comfortable and very well furnished and equipped. It was cosy but with oodles of character and I very much regretted having to leave the delightful cottage and the village after a perfect week.”

    Ms Kiersey, Greenford, June 2015

    • “Everything was to a high standard, particularly the views.”

    Mr Williams, Barnard Castle, December 2014

    • “One of the best holiday cottages we have stayed in, we will certainly return.”

    Mr Penny, Leeds, November 2014

    • “Delightful village in beautiful rugged countryside with weather to match - fabulous! The property is a lovely, intimate, stone built apartment perfect for couples who are o.k. with steps, which we are. We shall, given the opportunity, go there again, and recommend it highly, particularly given the fine couple who own it and live next door.”

    Mr Challis, Southampton, October 2014

    • “A beautiful cottage in a beautiful part of the country. The view from the cottage was stunning, so relaxing to sit in the lovely garden and soak it up.”

    Mrs Scott, Hull, July 2014

    • “Fantastic owners, friendly and helpful and couldn't do enough for you. Not only would we recommend the place, we will be back.”

    Mr Dyde, Sheringham, April 2014

    • “The barn conversion is located in very quiet village with a choice of two pubs. The owners very helpful advising where to eat and shop in nearby villages. Excellent location for walking and cycling. Visited Beamish Museum, Barnard Castle, Appleby and High Force during our weeks stay. Pet friendly accommodation and doggy treats. The majority of pubs in the area welcome dogs.”

    Mr Norton, Bridlington, March 2014

    • “The cottage was in a beautiful location, within easy reach of walks and areas of outstanding beauty. Our hosts were very welcoming, gave us lots of information on the area. Will be going back again next year.”

About the location


Barnard Castle 6 miles; Richmond 14 miles.

Arguably the most idyllic little village in unspoilt Teesdale, Romaldkirk has pretty greens, old stone cottages, a beautiful old church and two pubs, one of which won AA Pub of the Year for England in 2003 and serves excellent restaurant and bar meals. The village itself is surrounded by stunning Dales countryside and makes an ideal base for walking and touring throughout the Northern and Yorkshire Dales areas, boasting superb fell, flat or river walks and cycle rides from the doorstep. The northern Lakes and the cities of Durham and Newcastle are all within easy driving distance, whilst the ancient market town of Barnard Castle, with its many historical and cultural attractions, is just a 10 minute drive away.
