  • "No external front door photos of holiday property which is on a main road with traffic lights immediately adjacent."

    When in kitchen area (by the way lounge/kitchen area open plan) all one can hear is traffic noise !! This being from high window on road side. When reading about property describes parking as being near by. This is the very first time luggage etc has had to be carried some distance in order to reach a holiday property. Had to leave shortly after arrival.

  • "Beautiful lower ground apartment with amazing views of the river and the castle ruins, what a treat waking up next to those views ever morning!"

    A quick walk over the bridge and up the hill to the wonderful Barnard Castle centre with a great variety of shops, pubs, and cafes. The flat has everything you need for a comfortable stay, the couch was really comfy. The property was warm, the shower was great, the Milton brown and espa toiletries were a luxurious touch! My only request would be to change the pillows in the main bedroom, they were too thin and flat for my liking! All in all a wonderful stay, thank you for the memories.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at the property."

    Only negatives are the misrepresentation of the view of the river and bridge. From the photographs on yr website it looked like you had a superb view of the bridge and river - this was not the case. Possibly from other properties but not this one. Also not easy Parking - mainly due to roadworks but even so I think this should be pointed out. The property itself is stunning, it had everything and more that you would need for a very comfortable stay. The cleanliness was also superb. Would highly recommend if you didn't mind not having a view and the parking isdue.

    Unfortunately the internet was not good enough for todays standards on top of the fact there is no signal inside. Apart from that it’s great. Would go back

  • "A lovely cottage, well furnished and equipped."

    We enjoyed our stay. Probably out of your control but a window in the lounge to look at the river would have been perfect. Only problem was opening the front door from inside. Every time it stuck and took ages and a knife to get out. A bit panicked. Thought instructions to access key could have been a bit clearer, but help came when we rang someone.

    Thank you for your feedback we are pleased you like the cottage and enjoyed your stay. The lock on the door has since been looked at. Kind regards Katrina and Stephen. Property Owner

  • "A lovely clean apartment in a superb location -close to town and castle as well as some lovely walks ."

    As avid tea drinkers it was great to find a teapot as well as a milk jug -rarer than you would imagine! Beds were super comfortable and we found ourselves sleeping in way past our normal getting up time! Would have liked a mirror near a plug point for blow drying hair and dining chairs were incredibly uncomfortable but they are the only slight criticisms , apart from maybe a welcome pack of some sort would have been nice.Even post -Covid we have always found something has been left for us in other places even if it was just a pint of milk and some nice biscuits.

  • "We enjoyed our stay very much."

    The apartment is tastefully decorated and well looked after. A small hitch was soon resolved by a phone call, very professional staff swiftly had everything in control. I’d recommend this place to anyone and the lack of on site parking wasn’t a problem don’t let it put you off. Barnard Castle is a lovely place to wonder around. Our dog Viv enjoyed the walks around a nature park 5min down the road, she’s at her happiest off lead exploring. We would love to return again soon!

  • "Absolutely outstanding property."

    Parking could be an issue to some as the cottage is situated on the corner of the bridge where traffic lights are deployed. But don't let that put you off. We will definitely re-book this cottage as we have fallen in love with the property and its position

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.
