  • "Owners of the property were so lovely and accomodating - we couldn't have asked for more."

    The cottage was clean and warm, with fresh towels and bedding. The wifi was great because signal wasn't amazing for us there. Modern kitchen and bathroom facilities. We will definitely return in the future!

  • "Three of us stayed in this lovely cottage for a walking holiday in the surrounding area."

    The cottage was well equipped and quiet. Initially we did have some problems with the Broadband/WiFi which really wasn't fit for purpose, however we were pleasantly surprised when the owner got a technical engineer in who resolved the problem. After this we had no further problems and can report that SmartTV, tablets and phones can all be used adequately including to make calls and video calls. The hot tub was also lovely and most welcome after a days walking. The owners could not have done more to help us and without hesitation we would recommend this cottage to others.

  • "Our stay was very enjoyable, lovely location, peaceful on a working farm."

    The family were very helpful and friendly, we shared a play area, and my little grandson loved it. My elder Grandson loved the hot tub, and used it daily. The only negatives were the weather and the wifi, one of which our hosts couldn’t do much about, and the wifi which they had done what they could, but the area just as a poor signal, we struggled with phone and gps, so that’s just one of those things. If you are planning a holiday streaming films on your iPad this isn’t the place for you, if you are planning a peaceful break in the country, and get out and about it’s a great location, and place to stay.

  • "A lovely place to stay, the barn is spacious and comfortable."

    The children were happy to play everyday on the park area, and relax in the hot tub. The family who run barn are so friendly and helpful, and just next door if you need them.

Alternatively, guests can relax in the small private courtyard before dipping into the bubbling hot tub to soak up the picturesque surroundings.

Once the evening has drawn to a close, catch your rest within one of the two well-presented bedrooms, comprising of the master suite, which is notable for its plush double bed, whilst the twin bedroom is great for friends or those with children.

To the rear is open farmland with a bridleway accessible from the cottage, and there is much walking opportunities here!

About the location


Barnard Castle 3 miles; Middleton in Teesdale 11 miles; Richmond 14 miles; Durham 40 miles.

The pretty Teesdale village of Whorlton has always been closely associated with the fortunes of nearby Raby Castle and its owners. The Castle (open to the public) is one of the grandest in England. Enlarged and beautified over the centuries, the medieval heart remains, and a walled garden and 200 acre deer park add to the splendour. The popular market town of Barnard Castle is only 3 miles away, with its own Norman castle plus a wide range of shops, renowned antiques quarter, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants. The Bowes Museum, High Force and Shildon Railway museum are only a short drive, and walkers will enjoy the many trails around Teesdale.
