  • “The property was nicely appointed and clean.”

    Was in a good central location. ...

    Was in a good central location. The property was cold on arrival and would have benefited from the heating being on in advance. The parking proved to be an issue. The small courtyard we were told on arrival was for our use only. On arriving back to the property after a day out we couldn't park as two cars were in the courtyard. I had to go to the Hotel where the keys were collected from and reported the problem. The member of staff I spoke to seemed to know straightaway who was parked there and got them to move the cars. As this is clearly an ongoing issue it needs to be resolved.

The historic town of Barnard Castle boasts a traditional weekly market and there are many excellent restaurants, cafés, bakeries and shops within a few minutes’ walk of this cottage.

A visit to the Bowes Museum is a must but make sure you get there in time to see the Silver Swan in action.

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.
