  • “David and Roalyn were excellent ...”
    David and Roalyn were excellent host. We got a lovely welcome on arrival. The cottage was idea. Plenty of logs for the fire for the chilly evening, but only outside.

The property

Staindrop 2.8 miles.

This lovely cottage is situated next to the owners’ farmhouse, on a working livestock farm less than three miles from the village of Staindrop and five miles from Barnard Castle.

This delightful cottage is ideal for a couple with pretty villages and towns to explore close by and the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Yorkshire Dales National Park are within reach.

You enter direct into a compact but fully functional kitchen/diner with open-tread stairs that open directly into a bedroom with a double sleigh bed and en-suite shower room.

Back on the ground floor is a separate sitting room with a warming woodburning stove ideal on chilly evenings, or on a sunny day why not venture outside to enjoy a cold drink on the seating area set out at the front of the property?

The village of Staindrop is home to Raby Castle with its 200 acre deer park, and the village has shops, pubs and cafes.

About the location

STAINDROP

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.
