    • “Appropriately named "peace cottage"”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “This is a stunning little place, although little not being the operative word as this cottage is bigger than it looks. I think this might be one of the oldest buildings in the village. It has a lovely welcoming approach with small enclosed front garden, very dog friendly. On entering you immediately feel the comfort and quiet and the stillness is very calming. It is very well equipped and furniture and decor lovely. The provisions and 2 bunches of flowers were a kind and lovely touch. The kitchen is very spacious with everything in it you might need. This also houses a large table and 6 chairs. The front master bedroom is very spacious and has a romantic feel to it, maybe the romantic pink, it's lovely with its own shower room. This overlooks the front of the village and views beyond. The twin room at the back, again, is very well decorated with lovely calming teal blue colours and brilliant views. This has a family bathroom/over bath shower just at the top of the landing. The cottage is very well cared for and it is Immaculately clean and beds are very comfy!, There are no shops for supplies in the village but the town centre of Barnard castle is only a couple of miles away and you can get everything there. This has been a lovely place to relax in and it's very homely indeed. In fact I don't know why I'm telling you all this as I want to keep it to myself as I will definitely be returning”

    • “Deceptively large cottage very well presented, a good base for exploring moors and dales, and with a little more travel York and the coast, could also get to the lakes but we ran out of time. Much more to see and do, would definitely go back.”

    • “We enjoyed our stay at Peace Cottage very much indeed. The cottage was of a very high standard without exception. Tastefully furnished and decorated with a high standard of equipment. Everything was provided down to the smallest detail. The area is perfect for days out with more places than you can fit into a week. Very varied attractions with museums, galleries and castles with attractive towns such as Barnard Castle and of course the city of Durham. All in all, everything for a perfect holiday and we would definitely recommend this cottage and hope to visit again sometime. The lovely quiet location was just ideal. Many thanks to the owners!”

    • “What a gem! Clean, comfortable, and in a lovely peaceful village location overlooking small green. The cottage is spacious in all rooms, and although says sleeps 4, there is plenty of room for a cot in main bedroom. Decorated and furnished to a high standard. Large TV/DVD. Small front cottage garden with seating and BBQ. Very quiet and cosy to sit and have a BBQ and glass of wine. Plenty of parking space. Welcoming extras are lovely thought from the owner. My only gripe was walking to the fridge when cooking or making tea. In such a big kitchen it needed to be nearer the prep areas and cooker, instead of the washing machine! You do need a car if stopping at this property, although Barnard Castle is just a very short hop down the road. Lots of little individual shops in Barnard, a real mix (no big brands here). A Morrisons and Co-Op supermakets. Many of the local attractions cater very well for disabled visitors and children. Reasonably priced and everyone helpful and friendly. The Jersey Cow Hotel (just outside Barnard) is THE place for Sunday lunch. Book have been warned!”

    • “By far one of the most enjoyable places I have stayed and renting a cottage gives you the freedom to come and go as you please. The cottage itself was indeed very homely, immaculately clean and provisions included absolutely everything. A credit to its owner. Ideal for anyone just wanting a peaceful break. It must be said though that a car was necessary although I did spot a bus stop, and there's no nearby pub but apart from that I cannot fault this cottage. If its quiet and quaint you're after this ticks all the boxes!. Bravo.”

    • “Peace Cottage is appropriately named for the lovely peaceful, beautiful surroundings. The cottage was very very clean and very well maintained. The kitchen was very well equipped and spacious and I couldn't think of anything that was missing. The décor was very attractive throughout the house especially the bedrooms. It was extremely comfortable and a very relaxing place to be. The enclosed front garden was ideal for our small dog. Having had some sunny weather, the table and chairs outside came in very useful. We thoroughly enjoyed our short break and didn't want to leave.”

    Mrs Stones, Pontefract, April 2015

    • “Despite some poor weather we were cosy & warm in this wonderfully furnished cottage. The owner was kind & helpful. This is an excellent base for touring, walking or just resting. We have already booked to come back.”

    • “We had the most wonderful stay at Peace Cottage - actually surpassed all expectations. It was cosy, very warm and well equipped. Perfect for us with a dog too - plenty of room for the dog to stay in the kitchen. Also, there were lovely soft white towels and plenty of them and the water was hot with plenty of it. We just loved it - perfect for exploring the surrounding area and I would not hesitate to return there for more visits.”

About the location


Barnard Castle 1 mile.

Stainton is a small village in the unspoilt countryside of Teesdale, in County Durham, just one mile from the market town of Barnard Castle. Consisting of a small group of traditional cottages and boasting lovely views of the surrounding Dales countryside, Stainton is a great rural base for this part of the northern Dales. 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 cobbled streets, yards and back lanes which were first laid out in the 12th century. Beautiful walking country is right on the doorstep with The Pennine and Teesdale Ways, the River Tees and magnificent waterfalls at High Force are all within easy reach.
