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.

About the location
Grassington 4 miles; Skipton 12 miles.
A delightful village in beautiful Wharfedale, Burnsall is situated on a bend in the River Wharfe and is framed by the dramatic backdrop of Burnsall Fell. The oldest building in the village is thought to be the 12th century church and the lovely village school is one of the oldest in Britain. Perhaps the most famous feature in the village is the bridge - a traditional Dales bridge with five stone arches. The river meanders through the village and with an extensive village green and magnificent walks in the area, this delightful area makes a superb base for exploring the Dales and all it has to offer. The village itself has a pub/hotel, and a tea room, whilst nearby Grassington and Skipton offer a fuller range of amenities. Children shouldn’t miss Burnsall’s river 'beach' - just a few minutes' walk away and a 'must' on a sunny day!
