  • “We had a wonderful week, started ...”
    We had a wonderful week, started off by a lovely welcome parcel of some lovely biscuits and some wonderful fresh farm eggs from the owners. The cottage was beautiful, with everything we could possibly need and more. The village of Staindrop is so pretty, a lovely little place to walk around. There is a brilliant butchers just round the corner and a small shop and just a short walk of only 5 minutes a lovely little cafe that sells the most wonderful cakes among other things

At the end of a busy day exploring enjoy curling up with a good book in the cosy sitting area in front of the woodburning stove.

Upstairs there is one king-size bedroom which is zip/link and can be made up to make a twin if required, as well as a further double room with a walk-in wardrobe.

The surrounding countryside is ideal for cycling, walking and sightseeing, with a host of historical buildings to visit nearby, including impressive Raby Castle, The Bowes Museum, the roofless ruins of Barnard Castle and Eggleston Hall.

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.
