    Everything was A1 for comfort and was very carefully thought out. Plenty of extras as tea bags sugar milk even a lovely cake and a bottle of wine. The views were exceptional and of course the weather was truly wonderful. I would recommend this holiday cottage to everyone to have all the home comforts as if it was your own home. Just loved the extra quokka tap which gave the hot water for your tea without having to boil a kettle Wonderful. Should be tried by everyone. Thanks for the hospitality given.

About the location


Barnard Castle 1 mile.

Stainton is a small village in the unspoilt countryside of Teesdale, in County Durham, just one mile from the market town of Barnard Castle. Consisting of a small group of traditional cottages and boasting lovely views of the surrounding Dales countryside, Stainton is a great rural base for this part of the northern Dales. Barnard Castle stands on the site of an ancient Roman ford which crosses the river. The medieval ruins of the castle still tower over the river and are well worth a visit. Known affectionately as 'Barney' by residents and visitors alike, the town boasts cobbled streets, yards and back lanes which were first laid out in the 12th century. Beautiful walking country is right on the doorstep with The Pennine and Teesdale Ways, the River Tees and magnificent waterfalls at High Force are all within easy reach.
