  • "One word - perfect!"

    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.

    The facilities were fab:- rooms, lounges, kitchen/diner, outside too! It was like a 4-5* hotel! We all enjoyed it, kids especially. As an owner of 2 replacement hips I wish the step down into the downstairs en-suite had clearer markings & a hand rail in that shower would've assured me more! Just little things! But fabulous!

    Thank you for your lovely feedback. It was a pleasure to host you for your birthday celebration! I’m sorry that I hadn’t realised you needed a little more assurance as I do have a range of equipment to assist and I will make this known in my welcome email in the future.

    You won't be disappointed. Town Farm is a lovely property that is well maintained and equipped. We've just spent a fabulous week there, and I really didn't want to leave. 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.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback. We are delighted that you had a lovely time with us and were only too happy to help so other guests could join you. Looking forward to seeing you again in the future! Property Owner

    The house was warm and welcoming, with plenty of space for our group of eight, and could easily accommodate more. The decor is beautiful and the rooms and bathrooms were perfectly clean. The Kitchen/Dining room was very social and had ample storage space in the fridges for food and beer! We have also never seen a kitchen better equipped, we wanted for nothing in the utensil line! The bedrooms are a very good size, as are the beds which are also extremely comfortable. The garden is spacious, and great for playing in, for all ages! The house is surrounded by walks for which excellent laminated maps are provided. The house is also well positioned to visit nearby towns, and cities, for cultural and shopping visits.

    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.

    The property easily accommodated all ten of us (6 adults and 4 children) and was immaculate and extremely clean throughout. The kitchen was very well equipped and the table was plenty big enough for us all to sit around. The bedrooms and sitting rooms were tastefully decorated and the settees and beds were very comfortable. The en-suites and bathroom were light and airy. The patio area with built in bbq was great and there was plenty of seating and cushions. The hot tub was checked every day and the surrounding area and outside shower were thoroughly cleaned at the same time. The large garden was well kept and was safe for the children to play in - they were particularly pleased to play on the play equipment which was in very good condition. The proprietor, Paula, was very helpful with suggestions for restaurants, trips out etc - a visit to Hall Hill Farm in Lanchester was a particular favourite. We wouldn't hesitate to stay at Town Farm again and wish Stephen and Paula all the best for the future.

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!

Communication before we arrived was fantastic and Paula offered to be there for the online shopping delivery.

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. We would wholly recommend this place for a get together of friends and/or family as it has everything you would need - even sheep in a field at the end of the garden! Proper job! Amazing!

  • "Town farm is a stunning property with plenty of room and lovely finishes."

    We stayed as a family of nine and Paula the owner went out of her way to ensure our stay ran smoothly giving us lots of tips on places to visit. We really enjoyed the hot tub and the outdoor garden which had plenty of space for a football match with the children. Each room has a TV so you can escape for a little bit of peace and quiet and the beds were comfortable too. The local pub served lovely food and there were plenty of walks. We would definitely recommend Town Farm and would return.
