  • "A few insect nettings and fly catchers would help make the stay more comfortable plus new bed sheets without stains on."

    The walk in shower is restricted movement due to space and im a average size person. The hot tap gets to boiling temperature a bit to quickly. Leave it on a high note good size kitchen

  • "A lovely huge house, which is very clean and with a well-equipped kitchen."

    A pleasant seating area outside and lots of parking. Two lovely bathrooms. Very quiet with just the farm noises and birds to wake up to. Very close to Barnard Castle for shopping and eating etc. Lost of dog walks nearby. On the downside: 1) There was no four-poster bed as advertised, which was one of the main reasons for booking the house. 2) The Washer/Dryer advertised is just a washing machine. 3) Whilst the Wi-Fi signal was strong with many repeaters, it was virtually impossible to connect to them and even if we could there was no internet. This was with our two laptops, two mobiles and my car. I think being in the country with copper ADSL and with so many people trying to use the Wi-Fi, and with so many repeaters, it was unusable and very slow. Fortunately, I had a Plan B, an old 4G router that I brought with us! 4) A folder in the house with useful local information would be good. I wish properties would correctly advise the facilities, it's surely not rocket science!

  • "We had an excellent stay at Butterwick."

    It was central to what and where we intended to go and do. Very comfortable, especially the bed. The only niggle that we had was no access to a washing line. Highly recommended.

  • "Butterwick was ideal for our needs."

    The cottage was clean and warm. The bed was comfy. It was nice to have a proper freezer not just an icebox in a fridge. Husband was happy as he didnt have to do washing up because there was a dishwasher. There was a sound proof door between our cottage and next door but we did hear a little noise. The kitchen was large and everything you could want as regards pots and pans. The oven worked fine but we didnt use it on fan as it was so noisy, maybe the fan was sticking somewhere. There was plenty of parking space in front of Butterwick. The hosts were very friendly and accomodating and the bottle of wine a very welcome addition. All in all we would go back again.

    Lovely cottage and lay out. It was a real added bonus having a table tennis table.

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Butterwick, clean, tidy and well maintained."

    Will definitely be back to stay as apart from being born in next village I always return to visit my lifelong friends that live 1.5 miles from Cleatlam (Staindrop). Mrs Marion Boyes was so kind and nothing too much trouble. It was so lovely to be on a working farm once again and very peaceful surroundings. Very fortunate to have found the Boyes Farm tucked away on the edge of the village. Thank you.

  • "Butterwick was a lovely, comfortable stay."

    Just for the owner's information in the main bedroom. The side lamp (nearest the en suite) the bulb needs replacing - I guess as the lamp did not work. This did not at all spoil our stay - It's a lovely property.

  • "Very kind helpful people."

    Very busy farm. Lots of smells but it's expected if you book on a working farm. Lovely well maintained cottage. Very hot radiators at flick of switch. Massive kitchen. Lovely warm sunny bedrooms.

  • "Really spacious lodge, and extremely well kitted out with kitchen utensils, games, books, sugar, fairy liquid etc."

    The play park and toys outside were fabulous for our 2 year old. Close to Raby Castle which is worth a visit. The views are beautiful and it is wonderfully quiet. The bedding desperately needs to be refreshed though. It was aged and felt unclean. There were a couple of areas like this. The lodge was also unbearably hot on arrival yet no heating appeared to be on. The only way to cool it down was to open the windows which wasn't ideal due to the farm smells. We expected these and weren't too bothered but would have liked to be able to close the windows. All in all, it is a lovely property, would recommend.

  • "We were visiting family so we could look after our two little grandsons and wanted somewhere to take them rather than traipsing round museums etc and this turned out to be perfect."

    Huge rooms for them to gallop around in and an outdoor play area as well. On our second day, they were absolutely rapt looking out of the window watching sheep being herded, horses wandering about and also farm vehicles. Toys were left out for them and the huge TV was a source of constant pleasure, needless to say! When they had been returned for the evening, we could relax on the two big sofas and the bed was big and comfy. The price was great, the owners friendly but not intrusive and all in all, it was lovely. The central heating was possibly the best and most efficient ever and the constant hot water also a big bonus. Just two little points, not niggles exactly, but in the interests of honest feedback - firstly, the kitchen floor needs a really good clean. It has ingrained dirt in front of the sink and cooker which is a bit off-putting, also there was a garlic skin under the table and as I am allergic, I know for sure it wasn't ours! I used to own a company doing holiday let cleans and I would not have passed this job of work. Other than the floor, though, everything was clean enough. The other thing is that when the adjoining unit is in use (as it was on our last night) smells of food come through the connecting door, as does a howling draught when their front door is open. A draught excluder would probably fix that and it didn't bother us, but I can see that some people might take exception. The cleverly designed units don't have adjoining bedrooms, so there was no disturbance after bedtime. But all in all, fabulous!

  • "Generally we were happy with the property and found the owner to be most welcoming."

    There were only one or two minor adjustments we would like to see, such as a screen for the over bath shower, and perhaps some more kitchen utensils. The "Big girls pop" was most appreciated. We hope to return sometime soon.

  • "Lovely little cottage, in picturesque setting."

    Couple who own the place were very friendly and helpful. We had a small issue late one night with a toilet and they were straight round to fix things. Little park was great and kept the children entertained, it also allowed them to make some new friends as there are 4 cottages in total sharing the little courtyard.

About the location


Barnard Castle 5 miles; Durham 20 miles.

The pretty Teesdale village of Staindrop has always been closely associated with the fortunes of nearby Raby Castle and its owners. The Castle (open to the public) is one of the most grand in England. Enlarged and beautified over the centuries, the medieval heart remains and a walled garden and 200 acre deer park add to the splendour. Staindrop has many interesting shops, pubs and cafes set round its long village green. The popular market town of Barnard Castle is 5 miles away, with its castle, the Bowes Museum, plus of course its wide range of shops and tea rooms. Walkers will enjoy the many walks around Teesdale.
