  • "We enjoyed our stay at Barn House Mewes very much."

    It is a very well equipped cottage, extremely clean and well maintained and felt like a home from home. We appreciated the high standards and efforts of the owners to make us feel very welcome and made our stay all the more enjoyable. We would certainly recommend Barn House Mewes to our family and friends and would have no hesitation in staying here again.

  • "Lovely property in centre of the attractive village of Gainford."

    The property is well equipped with all the things you might possibly want on a holiday. Owners live in the adjacent property and are readily available for help and advice if required. Plenty of safe parking space. Although beds were very comfortable, the double bed is relatively low and - some may find it difficult to get back up again! Apart from that minor issue, the property is comfortable and was beautifully clean on arrival. It is set in an ideal location for visiting lower Teesdale. I am sure we will be back again.

  • "We had a lovely holiday at Barn House Mews."

    The property was clean and comfortable. Comfortable mattresses and nice bedding which is so important. The owners live in the adjoining house so help is there if needed. Barn House is very well positioned in a lovely village, lots to do and see in the area particularly if you like walking.

  • "Fantastic property, which contains everything you will need to have a comfortable, relaxing holiday."

    Good communication from owners leading up to us arriving. Helen lives in the adjoining property so is on hand if you need help with anything. Barn House Mews was spotlessly clean when we arrived, and is really well equipped. Good location for drives out to the coast/Barnard Castle/inland walks etc. There are some nice riverside walks which can be started just a couple of minutes away. We loved every minute of our holiday, and have no hesitation in recommending BHM. We will definitely be returning.

  • "Barn House Mews was lovely."

    Everything was clean, comfortable and of the highest quality. The kitchen was extremely well equipped. There were lots of books and information about the surrounding area. We enjoyed our stay immensely and it was the perfect location for our walks. Gainford was a quiet village with one pub that didn’t serve food, so if you want a bit more life this may not be the place for you.

    The village is delightful and the residents are really friendly. Our hosts were delightful and a pleasure to be with. We cannot wait to visit Barn House Mews again soon.

  • "Such a lovely property and lady who runs the house."

    Stayed there with my sister and our children for a quick break away. A little quiet for young children, but the major towns had plenty of entertainment and only a 15min drive away. Floor boards a little creaky when navigating getting to rooms once the children were asleep but every other box utterly ticked.

The property

Standing in the pretty village of Barnard Castle, next to the owner’s home, is this tranquil barn conversion, Barn House Mews.

Positioned seconds away from the beautiful village green and the historic houses that surround it, this 1700s property is a welcome retreat for families and friends in any season.

Upon arrival, park up in the spacious courtyard before getting to know your new home-from-home.

Enter into the dining room where you can host family mealtimes, whilst there is also a utility area with washing machine, sure to come in handy when your trails take off on a muddier route.

The living areas and bedrooms rest upstairs, including a sitting room with Smart TV, welcoming cosy nights on the sofa.

Move round to the kitchen, offering all the home-cooking essentials when you’re not dining at a local restaurant.

The master bedroom features a double bed and en-suite shower room, whilst there is also a twin and single which is perfect for children.

To the outside is a shared courtyard with seating, so you can enjoy a favourite drink on a balmy evening.

When you’re ready to explore, the local village of Gainford is truly unspoilt, offering a delightful village green with Georgian houses, along with amenities such as a general store, fish and chip shop and a pub where you can savour a pint and a hearty meal.

There’s plenty of wonderful scenery to explore, such as spectacular waterfalls and riverside walks, whilst cycling and hiking opportunities come in abundance.

Explore the dense Hamsterley Forest, the deer park at nearby Raby Castle or head to the market town of Barnard Castle and explore the cobbled streets and the Bowes Museum.

Barn House Mews is a delightful escape for a group of five, whatever time of year.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £450.
