  • "An excellent cottage and location."

    A nice base for the Pennines, County Durham and North Yorkshire. The Cottage was very clean and spacious with every convenience you would need for a week away. A nice touch was the welcome pack of cheese, home baked bread and butter provided by the owner. The only negative was the weather…..but that’s the UK in the summer for you !.

  • "What a fantastic stay we had."

    The accommodation was perfect for our 4 night stay. It was very well equipped and the mattresses and bed linen were good quality so had a super nights sleep! We didn’t meet the owner as the key was in a lockbox but if I needed anything I could have contacted her. Would 100% recommend this holiday cottage/farmhouse for anyone wanting a peaceful break away and enjoys walking and wants to explore Durham.

  • "Really enjoyed our stay."

    Property was comfortable and warm. Nice quiet area to stay and very near to Bishop Auckland and with easy access to Barnard Castle and Raby Hall. Enjoyed visit to the Bowes Museum in Barnard Castle. Owners were very helpful. Could not fault anything.

  • "Modern,exceptionally large property,ideal for 6 but just the two of us, so we had plenty room."

    .Two bathrooms made showering and washing very convenient, although the main bathroom shower was like something from Starwars. It only took about 2hours to work it out. All in all a very comfortable stay with tremendous views from every aspect.

  • "We enjoyed a really lovely stay at Wellberry, the setting was perfect."

    The kitchen was well equipped with everything you could think of and we loved the open planned living space. The bedrooms were a good size although the twin rooms would benefit with a bit more storage. The garden was perfect, more garden furniture would have been welcome as the stone set although looked lovely was not the most practical for relaxing and we would have liked a washing line.

  • "The cottage was excellent and extremely good for a base to visit the surrounding countryside."

    A very nice pub was within walking distances that served wonderful Italian meals, unfortunately we could only eat outside due to Covid. We were fortunate with the weather and the garden enjoyed the sun all day. I would recommend that to benefit fully from the garden, relaxing chairs should be provided.

  • "Very quiet location, just what we wanted."

    Plenty of space and comfortable sofas. Bedrooms equally comfortable. Only issue was that, as we like to cook on holiday, we expected the pots and pans to be clean, but quite a few still had some food on, so we ended washing everything, including plates and cutlery, just to be sure. I know that turn-round times on changeover days are short, but in these days of Covid-19, I feel that the priority should be on making sure that anything related to food, cooking, eating etc. should take priority. Other than that no complaints, and we had a really good rest despite the weather!

  • "Absolutely fabulous cottage."

    Booked over Christmas for a family get together and it didn’t disappoint . The cottage itself is very well designed with an overall feeling of space. There were 4 adults and 3 children, aged 8,6 and 7 months and we were joined by 3 more adults and a 9 year old on Christmas Day and not once did it feel cramped. The boys loved the outdoor space. Then there are the extras. The Christmas tree and decorations were perfect and the welcome pack of milk, fresh bread, butter and cheese board were very appreciated. We have never stayed in such a well equipped cottage . The kitchen made Christmas dinner a breeze and the games/ jigsaws available kept everyone entertained until Father Christmas had been with their own toys. The real fire was lovely and the views felt like we were in the middle of nowhere. Best Christmas ever. Thank you!

  • "This beautiful cottage had more the feel of the hotel about it than a self catering holiday home, equipped with everything anyone could need for a comfortable stay including towels, tea towels, hand soaps, shower gels, cleaning products, and much more."

    We were even left a welcome package of fresh bread, butter and cheese, plus milk in the fridge ready for the first cuppa, for which the tea and coffee were supplied too! Truly wonderful, looking forward to another stay soon!

  • "The cottage was excellent position get away from it all."

    Well equipped. Fantastic walking around virtually traffic free country lanes. Just could do with a more deep clean,several areas in the property like under sofa and bathrooms. Also little areas like light bulbs out handles loose in kitchen. Also plumbing in en suite made a loud noise every time you used the sink/toilet could do with a handy man around just doing little touch's here and there. We have stayed in several Sykes properties and they are normally spotless clean. But on a good note nice welcome from owner and bread,milk cheese in kitchen. Great log burner and the under floor heating is amazing the whole cottage lovely and warm.

  • "This is our 3rd visit to Wellberry, it is a beautiful location and the space inside is well laid out, ideal for two families as there are two sides to the cottage and all rooms are very generous in size."

    The owners have thought of everything you may need and are always friendly and welcoming. The house is always well kept, clean and equipped with a welcome of fresh bread, butter, cheese and milk. There is a garden outside for children to play and to sit and take in the glorious views. We will be back.

  • "The accomodation was of a very high standard of decor and fit it also had lovely surroundings."

    A couple of things took the gloss off it for us. Not everyone likes dogs, unfortunately the adjoining properties that have permanent residents have dogs and a few times during the week we got woke up very early in the morning by dogs barking. The dogs also hassled us when trying to get from the car to the cottage, and they also went to the toilet on the lovely lawn. If a dog is your best friend then this probably wont be a problem. In the accomodation the table runners in quite a few of the rooms were quite dusty, hence the reason we folded some of them up and didn't use them. In our opinion it looks as though rooms that hadn't been used recently may not have been dusted

About the location


Barnard Castle 5 miles; Durham 20 miles.

The pretty Teesdale village of Staindrop has always been closely associated with the fortunes of nearby Raby Castle and its owners. The Castle (open to the public) is one of the most grand in England. Enlarged and beautified over the centuries, the medieval heart remains and a walled garden and 200 acre deer park add to the splendour. Staindrop has many interesting shops, pubs and cafes set round its long village green. The popular market town of Barnard Castle is 5 miles away, with its castle, the Bowes Museum, plus of course its wide range of shops and tea rooms. Walkers will enjoy the many walks around Teesdale.
