  • “Our only challenge was collecting the keys.”

    The email said to contact the owner, but he did not answer the phone when we called. (I left two messages. He finally emailed me back. Turned out he was having some issues calling me back.) Luckily your Skye team answered when I called and were able to provide the code to access the key lock box, or we would not have been able to get in. Also, there were not any instructions regarding the handling of the garbage or recycling when we left, so we just left it in the apartment. Sorry if it ...

Otherwise we loved the place. It was very comfortable and quite unique.

The property

A freshly converted apartment within the old ‘White Swan’ pub, right at the foot of the old bridge and overlooking the castle across the River Tees.

On the first floor of this beautiful and spectacularly situated old building, 2 Riverside is a delightful and modern retreat and a perfect location from which to explore the many attractions of Barnard Castle.

The views to the rear of this building are superb, taking in the famous River Tees, the ancient bridge at the foot of the castle walls, dating from 1569 and the 12th century castle.

After a day exploring the town and the wonderful countryside of Teesdale there is no nicer place to relax.

Take in the scenery from the open-plan living area, a wonderful modernised layout, divided between a lounge/diner and a well-equipped kitchen, or discover the bedrooms where you can wake up to the charm-filled surroundings every day that goes by.

Barnard Castle is a real gem; the nearby Bowes Museum has a world-class collection of European art and textiles whilst the town itself is a colourful and lively place where interesting local shops jostle for space along the ancient roads.

High Force is down the road, Bowes Castle just four miles away, Witham Hall nestles in the centre of town and Eggleston Abbey sits on the banks of the river.

Further afield are the Yorkshire Dales National Park, the beautiful Dales towns of Richmond and Ripon and of course Durham.

A one-of-a-kind retreat in an enticing part of the country.

About the location

BARNARD CASTLE

Staindrop 6 miles; Richmond 13 miles; Darlington 16 miles; Durham 20 miles.

The market town of Barnard Castle is situated in the unspoilt countryside of Teesdale in County Durham. It stands on the site of an ancient Roman fort 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 cobble streets, yards and back lanes, which were first laid out in the 12th century. The nearby Bowes Museum is well worth a visit and a wonderful way to spend a day wandering around this beautiful building and experiencing the fascinating exhibitions. Beautiful walking country is right on the doorstep of this lovely market town, with woodland walks and cycle routes and the Lake District, the Pennine and Teesdale Ways, and the River Tees and magnificent waterfalls at High Force are all within easy reach.
