    “Easy to find, comfortable and warm.”

    We took our toddler with us and Jon and Amanda were very kind to set up a travel cot and highchair so we didn't have to bring that with us. They went the extra mile when I asked if they had an extra fridge/freezer as we were staying to attend my best friend's wedding and I was making the cake. The wine and bubble bath was a nice touch too and very appreciated after a long drive. ...

    We took our toddler with us and Jon and Amanda were very kind to set up a travel cot and highchair so we didn't have to bring that with us. They went the extra mile when I asked if they had an extra fridge/freezer as we were staying to attend my best friend's wedding and I was making the cake. The wine and bubble bath was a nice touch too and very appreciated after a long drive. Only things I would change is maybe some new pillows as they were rather flat and a better vaccum. I tried to vaccum the rug (it had quite a bit of dog hair on it, as did the sofa) and it had very little suction. I understand it's a dog friendly cottage so I was expecting a bit of dog hair but not to the point that my tights were covered just from sitting on the rug to play with my son. Overall a very pleasant stay, family and friends came to visit and thought it was a gem of a find too. We loved the little guide book they had made and all the leaflets from local attractions really helped us get around especially since the cottage is a black spot for phone signal and data so you can't just Google things.

The property

Barnard Castle 6 miles.

An attractive, detached stone cottage set in a quiet, rural enclave within upper Teesdale, on the outskirts of the small village of Copley, 6 miles from Barnard Castle.

This Barnard Castle cottage was a former lead mill workshop and lies next door to the owner's home within sight of the original lead mill chimney – a local land mark.

Long since landscaped and afforested, this Barnard Castle cottage lies in a small valley with public footpaths leading away from the door and into the beautiful surrounding countryside.

With wooden flooring and a pitched roof with original beams, this Barnard Castle cottage has been finished to a good standard and has an open plan living area with a contemporary kitchen, dining area and sitting area.

French doors lead to a front patio with pretty views of the countryside and the small wooded valley; an ideal spot to enjoy a drink and plan the next day's activities.

The local shop and pub are both just one mile away and Hamsterley Forest is also nearby, with lots of opportunities for cycling, hiking and touring in this beautifully scenic district, which include the deer park at nearby Raby Castle and the waterfalls at High Force and Cauldron Snout.

The market town of Barnard Castle with cobbled streets and the Bowes Museum is nearby, plus a short drive brings you into the heart of Durham, with its majestic cathedral standing high above the River Wear.

This Barnard Castle cottage offers a unique, romantic holiday experience for a couple wanting to enjoy the beautiful countryside of the northern Dales.

About the location

BARNARD CASTLE

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.
