    “As a base, it's great - 4 bedrooms, 4 en-suites.”

    Perfectly clean and tidy. The kitchen is a great layout for social gatherings. The East Wing at Barforth Hall certainly has character as an aged, listed building however it is missing charm. It's rough around the edges in places. ...

    Perfectly clean and tidy. The kitchen is a great layout for social gatherings. The East Wing at Barforth Hall certainly has character as an aged, listed building however it is missing charm. It's rough around the edges in places. If you are looking for a base to explore the local area as a big group/family, and are not planning on staying in much I would highly recommend this place. I don't think this property would be suitable if you are a group looking for somewhere with cosy charm and comfort to nest for a few days and stay in and relax.

Barforth Hall Cottages

Eppleby 2.9 miles. These charming cottages are set in a beautiful rural location in the grounds of Barforth Hall, six miles from the village of Gainford and eight miles from Barnard Castle. They form part of a group of former farm buildings and provide an excellent base for touring this unspoilt and historic area. Featuring a variety of accommodation, these ground floor cottages provide wonderful holiday homes for couples, families and groups of friends who want to relax and discover County Durham and the Yorkshire Dales. The cottages are an ideal base for animal lovers as there are horses in stables next door, and just across the entrance is a small paddock, which is home to a family of alpacas. Footpaths spread off in every direction straight from the door, including a lovely trail which meanders along next to the river, or you can pop to the pretty village of Gainford, home to a shop and pub. There are plenty of opportunities for cycling, hiking and touring in this beautifully scenic area, with Hamsterley Forest, the deer park at nearby Raby Castle, or you can discover the waterfalls at High Force and Cauldron Snout. The market town of Barnard Castle, with cobbled streets and the Bowes Museum, is within reach, plus a short drive brings you into the heart of Durham, with its majestic cathedral standing high above the River Wear. These lovely cottages provide well-equipped accommodation in a wonderful countryside location.
