    “Lovely property which has had a sympathetic restoration to enhance its grade 2 listing.”

    Situated in a quiet location overlooking the church and ancient graveyard yet in the town centre a great place for visiting Barnard Castle and the surrounding area ...

    Situated in a quiet location overlooking the church and ancient graveyard yet in the town centre a great place for visiting Barnard Castle and the surrounding area The cottage is warm and cosy, and despite its age has plenty of room with good sized bedrooms. It has no private outdoor space, however that was not a problem for us. Parking is on street yo the rear but very hit and miss as to whether you can find a space, we used the long stay car park over the road and just paid for the week. The only improvement for us would be a proper mirror in the bathroom. One warning if you are tall be prepared to dodge the light units in the kitchen, especially the unit next to the oven and hob. All in all a great cottage and contact with the owners was great and they are happy to provide local information.

The property

A delightful Grade II listed semi-detached cottage located in a tranquil conservation area of the popular market town of Barnard Castle.

In an enviable location, a stone’s throw from the town's bustling high street, this beautiful cottage has been lovingly restored to a high standard and is full of charm and character throughout.

It benefits from a quiet and peaceful setting, opening onto a picturesque churchyard.

There are two bedrooms, both boasting beautiful original fireplaces, the main bedroom is particularly spacious and includes a king-size bed and there’s also a stylish family bathroom.

Downstairs you will find an inviting and relaxing sitting room complete with a woodburning stove, perfect for nights in with family or friends in the chillier months.

You will also find a well-equipped and spacious kitchen/diner, ideal for family meals or preparing a picnic for a day out exploring the wonderful Yorkshire Dales.

Barnard Castle's high street is a real gem, offering fantastic independent shops, pubs and cafes, as well as a weekly market.

A short walk from the cottage is the impressive Bowes Museum, with its colourful collection of European art.

Nearby attractions include the breathtaking High Force, England's highest waterfall, the historic Raby Castle, stunning Witham Hall, Egglestone Hall and its walled gardens and Egglestone Abbey, an abandoned monastery on the banks of the River Tees.

Why not visit the historic market towns of Richmond and Ripon, not to mention the northern Dales towns of Reeth and Hawes.

Less than an hour’s drive away is the beautiful city of Durham and its magnificent cathedral which is well worth a visit.

With the Yorkshire Dales National Park within an hour’s drive, this cottage makes for a fantastic base to explore the stunning County Durham countryside.

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.
