Nestled in Barnard Castle, County Durham is this wonderful mid-terrace cottage, Hide & Bolt.

The property boasts a luxurious and modern interior, thoughtfully decorated throughout.

Entering the cottage, you will find an elegant sitting/dining room with an inviting leather sofa, Smart TV, woodburning stove and a seating area for enjoying a home-cooked meal, or fish and chips from the local takeaway, after wandering the cobbled streets of Barnard Castle.

The kitchen is a lovely contemporary space with an electric oven and hob, wine cooler and a large American fridge/freezer ready to be stocked up for your stay; the enclosed courtyard just outside is the perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee from the coffee machine in the sunshine.

On the first floor, Hide & Bolt has two bedrooms, one double and one single, and a beautifully tiled bathroom with a spacious walk-in shower to start your day, topped off with a warm towel from the heated towel rail.

Staindrop is another picturesque town a short journey away, with the stunning Raby Castle Parks and Gardens, a traditional pub for a tasty lunch and surrounded by countryside for excellent walks.

To the south rests Richmond, a market town with a unique character surrounded by stunning scenery, where you will find the ruins of Richmond Castle, Richmondshire Museum or catch a performance and one of Britain's oldest theatres, Georgian Theatre Royal.

The bustling city of Durham sits north of Hide & Bolt, where there are plenty of options for shopping, the spectacular Durham Cathedral and Castle, and pleasant riverside walks to see the best of the city's amazing architecture.

Choose Hide & Bolt as your home-from-home in the fascinating town of Barnard Castle.

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.
