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.

Liked everything! The location of the cottage, the peace and quiet, it was well off the road but not isolated. The cottage was well stocked, enough towels for an army and very soft indeed. A very roomy cottage with nothing skimped on. We enjoyed the short stay very much and we wouldn't hesitate in requesting to stay again. Thank you.

The cottage was very cosy, warm and comfortable.

Peace Cottage was exactly that! Peaceful and warm. A home from home. In fact, better than home, as we did not want to leave. We enjoyed our stay there, and would like to stay again some time next year. We went to High Force waterfall, which was magnificent, and went to The Coach and Horses pub in Barnard Castle to play pool and darts each evening, where the real ale was excellent.

Ms Taylor, Birmingham, November 2013

The cottage was like a tardis, much bigger than it looks from the outside, and very warm and comfortable, in very good order. One of the best we have stayed in. It was a good area to explore the surrounding countryside, which is beautiful, lots of places to visit, we could not fit it all in.
