  • "An excellent property, clean & well equipped & Peter, the owner, is extremely attentive & helpful."

    Only minor draw backs are lounge sofas too long in the leg needing lots of cushions & one bed at least is too soft for us. But would happily stay again.

    Thank you John It was a pleasure having you stay with us and I look forward to welcoming you back. Thank you for your feedback about the sofas, and when you mentioned to me during your stay about cushions, we purchased several more, to make your stay more comfortable:) We have a selection of beds with different firmness levels if you’d prefer both firm mattresses next time:) Thank you for leaving everything so clean and tidy:) All the best, Peter Property Owner

  • "Had one or two issues."

    Having paid nearly £1200 for three nights were slightly annoyed to be asked for an extra £10 for wood before we’d even in packed. Our main issue were the little extras you’d expect from 5* accommodation ie hair dryers. ‘A mirror in each room. ‘Full size bath towels few commodities like milk and bread and maybe a bottle of wine(which we’ve had in previous rentals)when we raised these issues with the owner were told they were on the list. Should have been reflected in the price !!!

    Hi Mary I’m sorry that your experience was not as we would hope. We will learn from your feedback to improve in the future, and thank you for making us aware. We have, since your review added extra mirrors to bedrooms and downstairs toilet, a hair dryer has been added. Complimentary gifts kindly left by hosts differ from each holiday let. The hottub is drained, cleaned, refilled, and heated to bathing temperature, extra logs can be purchased at less than cost before arrival, as advertised. Property Owner

  • "The house is beautiful, we were a bit cautious with the cream carpets which made us feel a bit uncomfortable at times but other than that it is a great house with plenty space for a big group or family."

    Early check in and late check out was allowed on this occasion so was great.

    Hi Christina Thanks for your review and feedback, it’s great to hear you loved the house and would recommend to others. Thank you, Peter Property Owner

    Great location. Would highly recommend this property.

    Thanks for your great review and the house was left immaculate, fantastic guests, and we hope to see you again! All the best, Peter. Property Owner

  • "A lovely, spacious, clean house, ideal for 2 families to get together."

    It is clear this is a newly let property with holes in the kitchen where a previous window blind had been and a missing kitchen utensil, however once we made the owner aware of this one was delivered within a few hours. The hot tub was not as enjoyable as we had hoped, being a wood fired hot tub and requiring constant attention and maintenance for use, but the owner replenished our log supply during our stay. Overall we had a great holiday and enjoyed staying in this lovely house.

    Dear Amanda We are excited to hear you loved the house and had a fantastic stay & we would love to welcome you back. Thanks for your feedback and we are already looking at new blinds for the kitchen, we are always trying to improve:) I’m disappointed the hot-tub wasn’t as enjoyable as you’d hoped, it was particularly rainy and windy for your dates in December, which is out of our control:(. All the hot-tub maintenance, including; cleaning, filling with fresh mains water & treatment, is done before each groups arrival, and we now, from your feedback will ensure that the water temperature is up to bathing temperature, which will improve the guest experience. Kindest regards, Peter. Property Owner

About the location


  • Staindrop 6 miles
  • Richmond 13 miles
  • Darlington 16 miles
  • Durham 20 miles

The market town of Barnard Castle is situated in the unspoilt countryside of Teesdale in County Durham. It 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. The nearby Bowes Museum is well worth a visit and a wonderful way to spend a day wandering around this beautiful building and experiencing the fascinating exhibitions. Beautiful walking country is right on the doorstep of this lovely market town, with woodland walks and cycle routes and the Lake District, the Pennine and Teesdale Ways, and the River Tees and magnificent waterfalls at High Force are all within easy reach.
