    “Very easy to find by car the location of this well presented flat is directly on the traffic lights that allow traffic to flow over the bridge and there is a lot of traffic noise.”

    Also with being at street level people walking by very close are able to look into the windows to the living room and kitchen area.We kept the blinds down to combat this. This being said the general location is very good for the area and the town of Barnard Castle itself We had a very pleasant stay and visited the local area and completed walks on the Teesdale way and had a drive up to Hadrians wall. Very enjoyable stay

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.
