  • "Great place to stay for a girls weekend away, had everything we needed and beautiful views!"

    Reviewed by Nicola5.0Nov 2023

  • "Had a lovely time but there were just a few things that I would have expected due to the cost of the holiday."

    There was no dryer, which, had it been raining and we all got wet after walking would have been a problem as we didn't have many clothes due to the short stay. We brought films to watch but there was no DVD player so we connected to the app as directed, which we had to sign up to with a subscription attached and it couldn't connect our phone to the TV. This was very annoying and took us out of the holiday, relaxed mood. We then had problems cancelling the subscription. Other than that it was a lovely clean place to stay, with nice views and a lovely big hot tub.

  • "Great location."

    Nice welcome package and kitchen had any utensil I could possibly need. Could do with a larger sign/sign closer to the gate for this particular lodge, and maybe fill a couple of pot holes, but I will definitely be returning.

  • "We all had a great time at Low Shipley Mill."

    The cottage was clean and spacious. We enjoyed using the hot tub! Only minor suggestions would be to provide some more tea towels for the kitchen and some scrubbers/washing up equipment.

    Cottage is immaculate and has all the facilities you would need. Hot tub was lovely with amazing views. Would definitely return. Thanks for a great weekend.

  • "A slightly bigger fridge would have been useful and the approach road could do with a bit of attention but otherwise, an excellent place to stay."

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed our stay to celebrate a special birthday, stunning views from the hot tub and the sitting room."

    We will definitely be booking a return trip.

  • "Really delighted with the stay, which was for a surprise birthday getaway."

    Not quite as secluded as we thought from the listing, however, absolutely stunning location and a beautiful property. Thank you for the lovely welcome hamper too; a nice surprise for those who arrived first ;-) It would be worth highlighting prominently on the listing also about vehicular access and the state of the road; fortunately our cars all managed, but I had contemplated bringing my sports car for the weekend which would never have made it down the track without considerable damage. Nonetheless, wouldn’t hesitate to book again!

    I have never commented on here before, but I feel it necessary to do so. I am very pleased that this party enjoyed their stay. But the comments about the road in are very exaggerated, yes the road is unmade in places which is pointed out in the details on the website. But to say that there would be considerable damage caused if a sports car was brought down is a bit far fetched. All cars come down the road quite happily, if you have a lower car, if you drive a bit slower and sensibly there would be no problem. Property Owner

    Cleanliness and amenities were 10/10. We couldn't recommend it enough. Thank you for a wonderful stay

  • "An outside light near the hot tub for access would be really good."

    It’s very dark when getting in and out of it.

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.
