The property

A beautiful period terrace house resting in the ancient market town of Barnard Castle, Stang View is a fantastic base for a trip to County Durham to explore the Durham Dales and the cobbled streets and back lanes of Barnard Castle.

Hosting two bedrooms and several receptions rooms, this spacious townhouse is suited perfectly to two couples or a small family looking to enjoy the delights of this historic settlement and the brilliant surrounding walking country.

Step into the lovely hallway and across the original period tiling to be welcomed into the stylish fitted kitchen, complete with all you need for cooking up some tasty meals, you can perch at the breakfast bar while the chef gets things going.

The sitting room lies at the front of the house and has a warming woodburning stove to enjoy as you relax on the sofa or armchair after an afternoon of walking, with a TV to entertain amidst the elegant decor.

Gather around for a meal together or an indulgent takeaway at the dining table to the back of the house, or take it outside to the enclosed garden on a summer evening, with furniture out here and storage for a pair of road bikes too.

Following a busy day, get some rest in one of the two double bedrooms, both enjoying attractive decoration and colour schemes as well as plenty of storage for your things, while the fabulous bathroom has a walk-in shower and a bath.

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.
