  • "We loved our stay at Claire House in November."

    It was cosy, well equipped, had everything we needed. The garden was perfect and safe for our little dog. Property was comfortable, quiet spot but 5 mins from the main high street. Will definitely stay again and recommend. Thank you.

  • "Even the Premier Inn provide hand soap!"

    Difficulty of stairs should have been mentioned in description. We had a real performance to guarantee that the toilet seat had been fixed before arrival. Furniture needs updating or replacing, springs coming through king sized mattress and dining chairs. Bedside tables only low boxes. Sofa too wide and low, cushions too soft. Nowhere comfortable to sit. Equipment not working e.g. radio and hoover. Claims to be dog friendly, many notices up prove not so. Items provided such as washing up liquid, loo roll, washing liquid etc.very cheap. No extras such as cling film or foil. Food from previous guests left in cupboard. Only one hand towel per floor and only one tea towel. Overall felt very cheap, which is a shame because it is a beautiful property in a fantastic location. The finishing touches let it down. It felt like the owners were just trying to make as much money as they could out of you. We do appreciate that it is a business, but there was a distinct lack of customer service.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are disappointed to hear that you weren't fully satisfied. This is very surprising, as 1 Claire House Way is one of our most popular properties in the Barnard Castle area; and we receive fantastic reviews overall. Regarding items not available in the property, it is a self-catering cottage, therefore the owners are not at liberty to provide such things as cling film, etc. Guests are expected to bring their owner provisions for their stay. furnishings and soft furnishings are all subjective, we are sorry these weren't to your taste. There are a couple of signs politely asking guests not to allow pets upstairs or on furniture. We advised the owners to provide these as not all their guests will be pet owners and they have to be more mindful of them. In terms of the hand towels, the cleaning company should have left more however if you had contacted us or the owner they could have supplied more. We are sorry that this property proved not to be the correct one for you. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful property, which has everything needed, great location and close to the town, along with some lovely walks and places to visit."

    Sadly, let down by the overall cleanliness (toilet dirty, floors still with dog hair, beds not made and more) and not being ready for our check in time. Owners very helpful when first notified and some things rectified. However, follow up text to owners not responded to, leaving us to contact Sykes, which was disappointing. There is a washing machine available which is missing from the listing.

  • "The house was in a perfect location and close to town."

    It was quite difficult to find though as it's not clear from the directions that you have to drive through the entrance to the hospital. It would help people find it if this could be included. We had a wonderful stay and would certainly stay again.

  • "We had a lovely stay in 1 Claire House."

    It's in a great location, with a 5 minute walk to the town centre. The house was spotless and it was lovely to receive some welcome gifts on our arrival. The accommodation is very comfortable and the layout is great for a family. Barnard Castle area is great for a short visit with plenty to do in the town and the amazing Tees valley and Pennines close by.

    The property is one of best that we have stayed in, very well equipped, warm, quiet, with high quality fittings and finishings. Parking & location are very good. Leisure facilities close by. Lovely enclosed private garden. A few little touches would enhance the property further, a non slip shower mat along with a soap dish & a little more support in the lounge furniture. Would definitely recommend & return for another stay. Thanks for the lovely welcome pack, much appreciated.

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.
