    “The Sykes booking process was very simple and we were kept informed before, during and after our holiday.”

    Cannot fault the service. ...

    Cannot fault the service. The holiday accommodation was really lovely with top of the range furniture and furnishings. The cottage was centrally located with both the river and the shops being only 5 mins walk away. The cottage owners had done a tremendous job with cleaning the property (stayed during the Covid-19 pandemic) and we felt safe. They left plenty of cleansing products too. We appreciated the hamper of wine, beer, scones, sweets and flowers. The owners called on the phone to see if everything was ok with the property and I felt nothing was too much trouble for them. They were not at all intrusive and do not live locally. Would we return - without a doubt.

About the location


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.
