  • “Town Farm is the perfect 'home away from home' and in a great location.”


    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.
