    The house was spotlessly clean, very comfortable, well equipped and with loads of space. Despite the cold, wet weather the hot tub was enjoyed by all. The owner, Paula, made time to greet us and say goodbye in person. She was lovely. Highly recommended.

    Hot tub was a hit with everyone and the kids loved watching a movie whilst in it. I can’t emphasise how well kitted out this place is compared to lots of other places we have stayed. Weather was shocking for the week but the house made sure we still all had a lovely time

  • "We had an absolutely amazing holiday at Town Farm."

    The house was absolutely fantastic, very clean, very tidy, plenty of space for even our family of 7 to spread out and enjoy the odd hour of peace to read or watch TV, but also plenty of garden space for us to enjoy together as well as the hot tub. We had many hilarious games of rounders, tennis, bowls etc., and most nights we got into the hot tub to watch the sun go down outside and just enjoyed time together (no electronics in the hot tub so all of our teenagers actually spoke to us for 90 minutes straight!). Paula was an amazing host, very attentive and nothing was too much trouble; we all agreed she just put the finishing touch on our holiday as we really felt she genuinely wanted us to have a good time and cared about our holiday. We would love to come back here sometime soon!

We would like to particularly thank our fantastic host, Paula who quietly checked the hot tub each evening (itself a wonderful feature) and very generously provided us with a sample of the delicious butter produced on her farm.

    Town Farm was a fabulous place to stay. Rght from the start the owner was helpful and nothing was too much trouble for her. We've stayed in many places and this was by far the best. The house was equipped with everything - there was nothing we needed that wasn't provided. We were even spoilt with a welcome gift of milk, eggs,cake and wine. The kitchen was top notch. Everywhere was spotlessly clean. There was so much space for everyone. The sofas were perfect to flop on at the end of a busy day and the beds were so comfy. The bathrooms were spacious with great showers and lovely good quality big towels were provided. The accommodation would be great for a large family gatheirng or a group of friends. The hot tub was a lovely addition overlooking the beautiful garden - a great play area for kids with a slide and swing. Sadly the rain stopped us from having a BBQ outside but we just swapped to he oven and had it anyway. The house is very close to Barnard Castle, Teesdale, Weardale, Durham and lots of lovely countryside and pretty villages.

Could easily have spent another week there. I imagine it's brilliant in the summer months with all the outdoor equipment ....although we did manage to bbq once, our grandchildren used the play park and the hot tub was used every day and night. However the indoor rooms are spacious and comfy, and they work well for everyone to have their own time to rest and relax, or to get together and be noisy! All previous reviews were spot on. And, for a small fee, Paula changed the bedding and towels/robes in 2 of our bedrooms as we had a change of guests half way through the week. We hope to return again in the future.

    What a great week we had at Town Farm, Winston. We are 4 couples and found the space, facilities and accommodation to be the best we have ever experienced. The owner Paula and her family make the house spotless and so comfortable for your stay, including a welcome basket of goodies. Although the location is semi-rural the small village of Winston has some very interesting walks from the front- door taking in the local history of the area. It's a 10 minute drive into Barnard Castle (Barney as the locals call it) which provides plenty of amenities for your stay. We visited Durham and the Cathedral, Raby Hall, the castle at Barney, Beamish the living museum, Kynren (seasonal, but not to be missed if you are there in summer) and Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay and Staithes on the Yorkshire Coast. And there's lots of other places we could have visited (hopefully next time). Even driving around and stopping in the nearby villages was lovely. Paula provided lots of advance information and greeted us with even more info and was always available to answer queries. I promise you will not be disappointed at Town Farm.

It's really well located for exploring the local area, with lots to see - The owners are so lovely and sent such a helpful email before hand with lots of recommendations of places to go and things to see. Can't wait to go back!

    We had some wet weather but it didn’t matter as there was loads of space in the house. We had a really superb time and discovered how beautiful Teesdale is. This is a very special holiday home and one we would absolutely love to go back to. It’s all so ultra clean and fresh. Particularly the hot tub was checked and cleaned every day. Fantastic!

    Non-intrusive throughout the time we spent there when she cleaned the hot tub daily, but would always engage in conversation and offer help / advice if requested. The accommodation itself was fantastic, very clean and well maintained with everything you need at your fingertips. Very spacious and the opportunity to have quite time alone in one of the many rooms if needed!. In comparison to other cottages we have stayed at I would have to say it is certainly the nicest and one that we will hopefully be able to stay at again in the future.

    ! and also the garden, hot tub, bbq and outdoor dining area. The hosts were very friendly and as we were celebrating birthdays Paula was kind enough to leave cakes and a lovely chilled bottle of fizz for us upon our arrival. The kitchen is extremely well equipped with lots of storage for food and a lovely big dining table. The bathrooms and bedrooms were very comfy, lovely thick soft towels and shower gel/shampoo and hand soaps in every bathroom. The children loved playing on the climbing frame-slide-swings in the garden while the adults enjoyed the hot tub (with outdoor shower - which also had showergel/shampoo for use). All in all value for money, luxury, friendly helpful hosts I would have to give 10/10 and would definitely like to book this lovely house again in the future.

    We were greeted by Paula, who couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. I knew it was going to be a memorable stay because of the caring and considerate e-mails we received before our arrival. There was an excellent welcome pack, including flowers, Prosecco and a homemade chocolate cake. We have stayed as a family group in many holiday cottages, but this was definitely the best in terms of facilities and amenities for a large group of people, (including our elderly mother.) Everyone had their own spacious bedroom and bathroom. The kitchen had enough of everything needed for meal times, and the oven and fridge space to prepare and cook meals for a large number of people. The village of Winston is pretty and quiet. We enjoyed walks nearby and there was ample outside space to enjoy. We tried out the well maintained hot tub, which was a very enjoyable experience with a glass of Prosecco! The house is wonderful: spacious, beautifully designed and decorated, well equipped and very comfortable. I'm not a good sleeper, but slept extremely well in a super king sized bed, as did the rest of the party. It is evident that a great deal of thought and care has gone into making it the perfect place to go and stay. You have done an excellent job, Paula and Stephen. We would love to return and certainly recommend it.

Certainly the BEST we have ever experienced! Everything was 5 star at its best. Comfortable beds in all 5 bedrooms & lots of choices on where to sit as there are 3 lounges! and so many TVs you're spoiled for choice! En suite facilities were lovely and a great modern kitchen very well equipped with everything you can imagine. The downstairs bedroom was very convenient for folk who find stairs difficult. Care must be taken going into the ensuite there though as there is a step down. The BBQ , hot tub and plenty comfy outdoor chairs are the "icing on the cake!" The sun shone for a few days so we made good use of these facilities!

    It is difficult to write down everything which made this a most brilliant place to stay but I'll try!. Paula and Stephen are great hosts who thought of everything to ensure we had a great time at Town Farm. Communication before we arrived was fantastic and Paula offered to be there for the online shopping delivery. All the beds were extremely comfortable and were made up to our requirements The kitchen was extremely well equipped - not just the statutory 1 cup, knife fork, plate etc each - so catering for all 10 of us was not an issue especially with 2 ovens, microwave and combi oven and numerous tins and serving dishes and utensils! Christmas dinner could easily be cooked in this kitchen! The whole house was spotless, comfortable and beautifully furnished so had a real home from home feel about it. A bathroom for everyone is such a great thing and meant we could all be ready in good time and be out to enjoy the beautiful part of the world in which we found ourselves. We had such fun in the hot tub and I was most impressed that it was maintained every day by our hosts - such great service. The outdoor play space was great for the children and Paula even fetched a sit and ride especially for the smallest member of the family and fishing nets for plodging down by the river. There were also loads of games and puzzles for all ages so everyone was catered for. It is obvious that a lot of time and effort has been put into Town Farm and this has paid off in bucket loads as it is absolutely stunning! We arrived here by default as the property I had originally booked became unavailable but are not sorry at all and we were all very grateful to have been able to experience this property at the start of it's journey.Thanks again to Paula (amazing pavlova! soooo kind!) and Stephen, such lovely hardworking people who deserve every success with this project.
