Two comfortable bedrooms, one double, one twin (listed separately) available in a cosy traditional cottage close to the river Tees, Barnard Castle with the Bowes Museum, the 'The Witham' arts centre, Lartington Hall, Eggleston Hall Gardens, High Force waterfall, Hamsterley Forest, Kynren at Auckland Castle, the heart of the Yorkshire Dales and less than an hour from the Lake District. You’ll love my place because of its location in a picturesque village with two welcoming pubs and lovely walks.
My house is located off the main road in a quiet, peaceful back lane overlooking fields with horses, sheep and cows. The bathroom which has a roll top bath and vintage mirror overlooks countryside. The sitting room is furnished with 1930's furniture (including flying ducks over the mantlepiece!), period fireplace, and has a piano guests are encouraged to use. You'll be served a delicious home-cooked breakfast in the spacious breakfast room and I can provide evening meals if required. The bedroom has antique (and comfortable!) bed with fresh linen and towels and a lovely view of the back garden. It's only five minutes from Lartington Hall and 25 minutes from the fantastic Kynren event at Auckland Castle. There are 2 pubs within walking distance that serve real ale and home cooked food. There's also a Post Office and General Shop.
  • The cottage is in a lovely location in a small village. Rachel is very welcoming and is really helpful. Her cooking was fantastic, and the whole experience was great. I would highly recommend Rachel and her cottage.

    Freddy2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • As the song goes “simply the best” ! Rachel is a warm, open, and generous, and very very helpful. Truly a Super Host, who goes out her way to make you feel at home in her home, which is not just comfortable, but full of character too. And she is a great cook ! Rachel is such a lovely person, who is very happy to share time and chat, offer help and information, or give you some personal/private space too, if that’s what you want. Perfect. One of the best places I’ve stayed anywhere (and I’ve stayed in a few !), and I cann’t wait to return.

    Steve2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • A superb place to stay in every respect. Rachel is a generous and kind host, and her house is extremely comfortable and stylish. The village has two really nice pubs a short walk away.

    Simon2019-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • Rachel’s B&B is superb. A beautiful little cottage with the perfect cosy, country feel. From the comforting Aga, with wafts of wonderful home cooking coming from the kitchen , to the antique freestanding bath. A comfortable and relaxing bedroom too. Rachel is the perfect host, she’s there to help and advise you if you’ve any queries, but otherwise leaves you in peace. I would highly recommend this B&B for a short break or even an extended stay in a quaint little village set in some beautiful countryside.

Rachel was very quick in responding to all of our enquiries. The rooms in the house are very spacious. The whole house is sparkling clean. The bed is super comfy. And the shower in the bathroom is great! We had a great stay and I would definitely recommend Rachel's place for anyone visiting the local area, or wanting a base to explore further a field. Thank you Rachel for a lovely stay!

  • We had a lovely weekend. Tessa was really helpful with recommendations of places to eat and the best way to go and see high force. We had a lovely day out and then spend an evening in front of the fire which was absolutely perfect. The barn was absolutely gorgeous. Thank you for the wonderful stay.

    Jessica2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • I booked Tessa’s place as a special treat for my friends birthday and it was everything we hoped it would be. Tessa was an excellent host and the accommodation was amazing. It was clean and cosy, there was lovely little finishing touches that made it all feel so personal and welcoming. I only wish we could’ve stayed for longer. The location is great with so much to do and see especially the high force waterfalls and the Strathmore Arms, just a little car ride away. Definitely hoping to visit again, maybe this time in the summer!

    Sarah2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Take a bow Tessa! Our stay was nothing but awesome =) Whether we were out on a beautiful stroll right from the doorstep or sat all cosy indoor playing scrabble by the fire, we felt relaxed and super happy in the barn house. It was wonderful meeting Tessa and she made us feel right at home. Tessa has set up an amazing property full of character and provides everything you need. Any issues or can't decide what to do, Tessa is ready to help. Me and Laura are already planning when to go in the summer and we just left today. We can't wait to visit all the local pubs and try the local ciders! Not to mention any names... but all of them! See you soon Mickleton!

    George2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely clean and cosy place to stay. Tessa was a great host, made us feel welcome and shared great tips on the area. Even though we stayed during a storm we were able to stay cosy and warm in front of the wood burner.

    Sarah2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Tessa was great with communication. The actual barn was much more spacious and larger than it looks in photos. Such a homely feel as soon as you walk in with a fire ready to light and tea selections. Tessa made the effort of giving special little touches for our Valentine’s night away with chocolates and heart lights in the bedroom. Everything was immaculate an cosy and Tessa had made many great recommendations for the local area including a delicious meal at the crown. 5 star stay, couldn’t have been better and we will definitely be returning! Thank you Tessa!

    Archie2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • A spacious and comfortable cottage set in a lovely Teesdale village. Tessa's little gem is perfect for exploring the North Pennines AONB. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys rustic charm combined with modern facilities

    Great value cozy twin room in the heart of Historic Barnard Castle. Super-convenient for all beautiful Teesdale has to offer including the world famous Bowes Museum and High Force. A few minutes drive from the A66 so a perfect Lakes stop-off.
    This is a second floor flat, accessed by an external and internal flights of stairs. The handsome building is immediately on the hight street, next to commercial businesses with all its market-town hustle and bustle so there is an amount of town centre noise. Probably not suitable for the lightest of sleepers or anyone who struggles with stairs. Otherwise, welcome to my home, it is nice. Cozy John Lewis bedding and luxury electric blankets.
    I am right on the high-street. Everything you need is a minute away including the beautiful River Tees, The Witham Arts Centre, The Bowes Museum and much more!
  • Great location on the main street in Barnard Castle. We had a great stay. The host was not there all weekend. If he had been it might have been a bit crowded.

    Neil2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Matthew's flat is a very cosy base, very conveniently situated right on the main High Street in Barnard Castle. Matthew is a really hospitable helpful host.

    Red Lion Cottage is set in the heart of the beautiful Teesdale village of Cotherstone. Our self-catering cottage offers a combination of traditional country style with modern luxury and convenience. The cottage sleeps eight in 4 bedrooms. Red Lion Cottage has been awarded 4 stars with a Gold Award by VisitBritain, reflecting the high standard of accommodation - ”Exceptional with a degree of luxury” according to the ratings.
    “Lovely cottage, all mod cons… Locals very friendly and helpful. Countryside very beautiful, will definitely visit again, lots to see and do.”
    The Cottage is situated next to the Red Lion Pub, a quiet and friendly country pub serving excellent ales. 150 metres up the road is the Fox and Hounds which serves delicious food lunchtime and evening, 7 days a week. In between the two pubs is the village post office/shop/newsagent, which sells a good range of food and drink.
  • Had a lovely stay in the cottage and we were impressed with the standard of cleanliness. Lots of good quality dishes and cutlery and everything you need really. Communication with Chris was very good with quick responses to any queries.

    Retania2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely cottage set in the middle of a very cute village. Brilliantly located for an easy pop for a potter in Barnard Castle one way, or an explore up into Teesdale the other. Having a pub next door was definitely a bonus when the storm hit during our stay! The pub is very traditional with no music; we heard nothing through the walls at any point.

    Tim2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Chris' cottage is beautiful - clean, spacious comfortable. We stayed over Christmas & felt particularly welcomed to find a Christmas tree, Christmas lights & the fire all lit when we arrived. The kitchen is particularly well equipped with loads of pots, pans cutlery & crockery. Chris was very friendly & welcoming. I would definitely recommend him as a host & his cottage as a venue.

    Michelle2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • The Red Lion Cottage is a superbly located and well equipped house, and our group of five enjoyed every minute of our stay. Chris was an excellent host and responded to our messages and phone calls immediately?

    Trevor2019-07-05T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is a lovely place. Spacious and cozy. The house was a lovely setting for 6 adults and 2 children to meet up and spend a lovely weekend at. Chris kept a few jars of jam for us. There is a little shop across the road that has more than the few essentials. The pub down the road serves food as well. Might be a good idea to book as it can get busy. We had a great time there. It almost became difficult for us to get out of the house to explore! A small selection of books and games are also stocked in the house.

    Aansan2019-05-06T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed in Red Lion Cottage for three nights. The cottage is a lovely base in an amazing location. The cottage itself is very comfortable, cozy but spacious, warm, tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. Impressive welcome basket with real coffee, cake and homemade preserves! Great communication with Chris the host. The local area is stunning, and Cotherstone village itself is beautiful and has excellent facilities, good walking (for both humans and dogs), a playground, a great shop / post office (amazing bread) and two great pubs (one of which is right next door, but we had no problem with noise - didn't hear a thing).

    Sarah2019-04-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great cottage. Great location. Excellent walking from the doorstep. The village is picture perfect. You wouldn't know the pub next door was there. Super friendly pub 200metres down the road in the Fox & Hounds, which served excellent grub. The cottage itself is spacious, well equipped, very warm and comfortable. Highly recommended.

    Tom2019-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • First time we have used an Airbnb and this was superb starting with the location. There are lovely walks within a few metres of the house including the famous Teesdale way down by the Tees to the walk along the old rail track to Romaldskirk. The cottage is on the main road through the village but it is a very quiet road and next to the Red Lion pub which is also very quiet and it has off road parking for 2 small cars with plenty of other free parking next to the house - we took 3 cars The cottage is like a Tardis and much bigger than we expected. A lovely large lounge set out in a big square perfect for the 8 of us to sit round the gas fire and large flat screen TV. It also has a well equipped kitchen and large dining room with a massive table and lots of chairs - great for our family meals. On that score there is a good local shop a hundred metres away with all the basic household and grocery provisions and the Fox pub a short walk along the same road serves good food There are spacious bathrooms one on the ground floor with walk in shower and one on the first floor with a jacuzzi bath with a shower over it. There are two big double rooms on the first floor and two smaller twin rooms in the attic conversion with sloping ceilings making a nice self contained area for one family. Wi-fi works well and there’s a modern digitally controlled thermostat to keep the cottage nice and cosy. Also nice touches from the hosts including lovely ground coffee for the cafetière and delicious home made jam Would have no hesitation to stop again and have already recommended to several friends

  • This is a lovely place to stay. The flat is very well situated, very clean with all the things you need for a nice day out. The flat is very well equipped and very comfortable. There are lots of great walks on that can be done from the doorstep. The town itself is great - we timed our trip for a night out at The Witham Comedy Club - which runs monthly. If you've never had a weekend in Barnard Castle, this is the ideal place to stay and to investigate from. Top class.

    Steve2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place. Really cute flat.

    Charles2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a real find and the only regret is that we did not stay longer. Warm and cosy, easy to get to on public transport and within a few minutes walk of the town centre and the Bowes Museum. The flat has everything you need and more. Every item is a work of art and a pleasure to use. The bed is the most comfortable we have ever slept in and it is a real treat to sit by the shuttered windows eating breakfast and watching the world go by. The shower is great too. Stay for a relaxing break, for the culture of the Bowes museum or on a walking holiday and you will not be disappointed.

    Jane2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely and very cosy flat. The perfect place to stay at for a visit of Barnard Castle and surroundings.

    Ryszard2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Delightfully quirky flat, furnished with excellent taste and so very cosy and welcoming. Situated in the heart of Barnard Castle and yet still peaceful and a real joy. The flat was sparkling clean, Myra responded to our questions immediately and was very helpful. The bed was huge and extremely comfortable.. We loved staying there and will certainly return.

    Julia2019-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • A real gem in a fantastic location which is super cosy and decorated to perfection. I can highly recommend this to anyone travelling within the area. It is much bigger than the photos suggest and the bed is a dream. The apartment is just superb and Myra was a fantastic host. We will definitely be back. Parking is free on the street and we brought our dog with us - there are plenty of walks and green spaces very near by. Thanks Myra!

    The Stables is a spacious barn conversion with separate large fenced garden, outdoor spaces and BBQ area. Surrounded by open countryside, on the working farm of Raygill near Barnard Castle on the river Tees. The accommodation can sleep up to 20 persons with 4 bedrooms including a master en-suite family room. Set in beautiful Teesdale near Lartington hall, minutes from the historic town of Barnard Castle on the river Tees. We mainly cater for large self catering groups.
    Fantastic large space ideal for large groups of friends and family. Plenty of outdoor space in the countryside but only a short walk in to the centre of town. The large fenced guest garden overlooking open countryside with picnic benches is separate from the main building at the bottom of the courtyard and not the garden pictured at the front of the Farmhouse and Adjoining Stables cottage.
    Barnard Castle & Lartington in Teesdale is a picturesque rural setting with great outdoor space for walking, cycling, Canoeing, Kayaking and all other outdoor pursuits. Close to a busy historic market town with castle on the River Tees & a French style Chateau called the Bowes Museum. Plenty of great places to eat and drink with lots of boutique style shopping.
  • The host is trying really hard to upgrade the property to a high standard. This will be completed soon. The Pool table was full size and good quality. The kitchen table allowed 8 of us to play Monopoly. House was warm. This is a good house for families. Toilet lights came on automatically. Small item, but great at night. The house easily holds 8. It can hold 16, but the extras are put in a dormitory room which is basic. Bernard Castle is the friendliest town I have come across. Bowes Museum and Loco museum in Shildon great.

    John2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • The stables were great for our party of 15 staying for the weekend. The kitchen is large and well equipped, with enough dining space for everyone too! Perfect location, on a scenic farm and only 10 mins drive from Barnard Castle, Peter was a brilliant host! Everyone had a great stay, fantastic spacious house that I would highly recommend!

    Nick2017-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Raygill Farm for my hen do. The cottage was very spacious, plenty of room for all of us, including in the kitchen and living room. Peter was very friendly and helpful on arrival and when we left. The cottage is in a lovely scenic area and it was nice to be able to walk around the farm and see the lambs and horses. Great place for a nice relaxing visit. Thanks Peter!

    Helen2017-06-04T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic weekend. The Stables are huge ! Our party was made up of 16 across all ages, we had plenty of room and didn't feel as though we were on top of each other. The facilities were good, everything you need really. The location of the stables is on a farm, which is brilliant, with plenty of horses and a couple of friendly pigs. One of the farmers even brought a baby lamb over to show to the children in our group, they loved it. The Stables are about 20 minutes easy walking through pretty woodland to Barnard Castle, well worth a look. Throughout, Peter communicated really well with us. He made it clear that if we needed anything we only had to give him a call. We'll definitely be back in the future. Good luck Peter

    Jason2017-04-23T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely, comfortable and spacious house ideal for large parties. Lots of great walks in the local area and a very welcoming host.

    Bettina2017-03-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great place for a large group, the house is well provisioned for cooking with big fridge freezer and plenty of space to cook and eat. Pool table is a nice addition and we were able to catch the rugby on the big screen before heading out for the evening. Peter's communication is fantastic, we spoke multiple times during booking and I knew exactly what to expect. He even helped us book some activities and check-in was easy. Would stay again.

  • We stayed at Thelma & Gordon's cottage whilst visiting relatives and house hunting in the nearby area. The location was absolutely perfect and the 10 minute walk into Barnard Castle was perfect for us to enjoy a drink or two in the evening and try the restaurants in 'Barney'. Thelma provided very good, clear instructions prior to check in and communication was always prompt. The Cottage was spotlessly clean and really cosy. The home made cakes and scones were a lovely touch and it made a nice change to find some fresh milk in the fridge too! I can't say much more other than I fully recommend the cottage, its clean, comfortable, well furnished & ideally located to explore Barnard Castle and surrounding areas. Parking nearby to the cottage was readily available and free.

The only thing you might miss is an Internet connection, it was clear in the description that it was not included though. The area is very quiet and has handy on street parking just across the road. Thelma had thoughtfully left fresh milk coffee and teabags along with some cake and biscuits, lovely after a few hours driving. Town was a short 5 minute drive away, and within walking distance of about 20 mins, we had no difficulty finding parking even on a busy Saturday in town. We would definitely stay at this cottage again.

  • Great location to see Barnard castle at night and morning sunrise.

    Sue2019-11-01T00:00:00Z

  • Beautiful village and ideal cottage. Cosy but with excellent size bedrooms. A very central location incredibly close to both pubs. A small kitchen but has the essentials. Friendly neighbour pops round to help with the bins. Excellent communication and help from host Gillian. We found the cottage a great base for exploring the local area and would love to return. Thank you.

    Alain2018-05-10T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely cottage in a stunning location looking over the village green. Gillian is really communicative and helpful and our stay was great.

    Ann-Marie2017-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay in Caroline Cottage. It's as clean and comfortable and cosy as described. Though we never met Gillian she responded to our queries within the hour even though she was on holiday herself for part of the time that we were in Romaldkirk. Drive and then walk to High Force waterfall was so good as were our more local walks. Always good to return to Caroline cottage to rest and and look out the window at a most superb and very English village green.

  • All the reviews had told us it was it was a great place to stay and it certainly was. Super hosts. Thanks so much. Look forward to staying again.

    Virginia2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cozy cottage

    Rachel2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Howgill Cottage is a lovely cottage in amazing surroundings! When we went it was rainy and windy so the fire was very helpful in keeping us warm! Tony and Peta provided some cute touches e.g. hot chocolate, cake and more, which we thought was lovely. Overall a wonderful stay, well worth coming back in the summer to explore the area more!

    Lesley2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • It was a compact space but ideal for two and a dog. Our hosts were exceptionally helpful and thoughtful with lovely treats waiting for us on our arrival to celebrate the New Years. There is no signal for calls or WiFi inside the cottage, however outside it is fine. We enjoyed the open fire and having a nice rural break with a good excuse to turn our phones off after a busy Christmas.

    Lisa2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Such a relaxing time at Tony and Peta's cottage. They weren't there to greet me but I had very clear instructions. I only stayed for one night with my two dogs but we were so cosy in the lovely cottage and the fire was just perfect. Everything we needed was there and it's such a quiet spot I slept really well. Fantastic, will definitely be back

    Sam2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great little place with thoughtful touches. A lovely break away.

    Elizabeth2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • I had a lovely two nights in Howgill Cottage. It was spotlessly clean, with lovely touches like a full wood and coal bin for the fire, scones, and milk and butter in the fridge. So cosy and welcoming! Peta and Tony were great, very helpful with directions and local info. I’ll come again!

    Amelia2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • A charming cottage where you feel happily remote despite its being easy to find. Very friendly welcome. Scones, jam, dog biscuits and the fire lit on arrival. A pint of milk and some butter in the fridge. Tea and proper coffee and a cafetiere. The main living area is a very comfortable bedsit and a good size for a single traveller or a couple, and a dog. The separate kitchen has everything you could possibly need, in the way of crockery, cutlery, utensils and appliances, for a short to medium stay. The separate shower room is very nice indeed, has good water pressure and is spotlessly clean. Books, maps and local information are provided and I think Tony and Peta have quite a lot of local knowledge too. I know this area pretty well and would/will book again without hesitation.

    Beautifully located, Rose Cottage is a cosy Dales cottage & 274 yrs old! With a large working fireplace & beams, it provides a comfortable family home & could easily accommodate 2 families or a group of friends. It is ideal for guests with children & dogs. Set on the river Tees, Cotherstone was voted one of the top 10 English villages. Only 4 miles to Barnard Castle & 2 miles to Lartington Hall, a popular wedding venue. It is close to the Lakes & ideal for breaking a trip to & from Scotland.
    My cottage is quirky and decorated with vintage finds and local art. There is a family kitchen, fully equipped with both modern and vintage kitchenalia. It has a huge stone sink which is over 100 years old! There is a range cooker and a large fridge freezer. On your arrival there will be juice, milk and fresh bread/ bakes. There is tea and coffee, sugar and basics for cooking such as oil, salt, pepper & spices-all fresh and usually kindly donated by previous quests! There is a small table and a few chairs, ideal for breakfast. A large pine dresser is filled with glasses, plates, cups and saucers, cake plates and vintage china. There are plastic cups for children, pots, pans and baking trays and lots of salad / serving bowls. It's a good sized kitchen for a cottage and great for socialising! The dining room has a table which seats 8 and a large bookcase with a good selection of local books and maps & games, There is an open fireplace filled with logs and a gas cast iron stove. With beamed ceilings and a big open fire, the living room has comfortable sofas and arm chairs. There is a CD player and lead to attach your phone to for your own choice of music. In the old school cupboard there are 100's of DVDs ( the TV has an integral DVD player). There is a wonderful large open fire. We always set the fire ready to light and leave logs, coal and matches. The fire is cosy and guests always enjoy the ambiance it creates. There is a downstairs loo and laundry /boot room. Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms. Each bed has a good mattress, doubles are memory foam. Beds are made up with fresh linen and clean throws and good duvets. We supply towels. Each bedroom is furnished with care, with vintage rugs and furniture. There is a large family bathroom with both a bath and shower. Outside there is a small garden and patio area. There is a BBQ, deck chairs and jali table for good weather. During the summer months there will be fresh herbs in the garden. The garden leads to a beautiful river- great for walking and there is a football pitch. It is child and dog friendly. There is a travel cot and a high chair and baby seat for a chair. There are dog bowls for dog guests. There is an extra Z bed for an extra single guest and a sofa bed, also for a single guest so I could accomodate 9/10 guests if for example children shared rooms and used the Z beds.
    The location is beautiful and Cotherstone is a pretty and quiet village just 4 miles away from Barnard Castle. There is an excellent pub opposite the cottage which serves good fresh food and reals ales. You may want to book in advance so check out the Fox and Hounds, Cotherstone link online. There is a small local shop, well stocked with basics and a post office inside. They sell the local Cotherstone cheese and a good selection of breads & bakes. The Red Lion pub is in the middle of the village. It is a traditional Dales Pub and serves good ale. The pub was in the 90's comedy 'The Fast Show'. Ted and his boss, the Toff used to drink there in the famous 'Ted' sketch. It's worth a visit for a pint. There is a good playground for children with some great equipment and cycle track. It is at the far end of the village near the church. There are walks from Cotherstone to Romaldkirk and Barnard Castle. The nearby High Force, the biggest waterfall in England and Low Force waterfalls are well worth a visit at anytime of the year. The area is a brilliant place and base from which to explore the Yorkshire Dales or the Lakes. If you are travelling from or to Scotland it is an ideal place to stop off and break the journey for a day or two. Teesdale is a wonderful working Dale, unspoilt & outstanding countryside with waterfalls and moorland. It is fabulous for walkers, and a magical place for children and guests with dogs. Cotherstone really is a perfect place to holiday with dogs- I have 4 and they love their walks in Teesdale. We are very close to popular weddings such as Lartington Hall, The Morritt Arms and Headlam Hall Spa and Jersey Farm. If you are visiting from a city, coming to Cotherstone and Teesdale might be like stepping back in time. The location is beautiful and the pace slow. It's a different lifestyle. My guests who book the cottage for just one or two nights usually wish they had stayed longer or plan to return in reviews. I am sure you will like Cotherstone and will be impressed with the countryside & the people :)
  • Andrea's place was quaint, comfortable and cosy. We loved our stay. It's in the perfect location to explore the many walks nearby and then snuggle around the open fire in the evening, before retiring to one of the very comfy beds. Andrea had left us a delicious cake, baked bread and coffee which was a really lovely welcome. We would really recommend staying here!

    Faye2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful cottage with lovely additional touches. Great stay for family occasion, peaceful village and thoughtful host. Would highly recommend this cottage and will certainly return in the future.

    Ruth2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay for one night at Andrea's Rose Cottage, and it had everything we needed. It has the characteristic charm of an old style cottage, its very spacious and comfortable, had everything we needed from cooking utensils to blankets, towels and a roaring fire (and a few extra delights left by Andrea), and was in a lovely quiet location. Andrea provided all the information we needed and check in and parking was super simple- she even was kind enough to let us check in a couple of hours early. No negatives at all, really pleased with our choice and I would definitely recommend the cottage! Thanks Andrea!

    Kate2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had a gorgeous short stay at Andrea’s. We enjoyed cake and biscuits on arrival. Really lovely touch! We didn’t want to leave!

    We are lucky enough to have just taken over Clove Lodge Farm in beautiful Baldersdale which is the perfect place to rest your head for a night and celebrate reaching the half way point along the Pennine way. Or to stay a little longer and enjoy this beautiful area, stunning views, amazing night skies and tranquil setting. The cottage has been recently fully refurbished and a Scandanavian hot tub and sauna installed in a decked wooded area overlooking our very own waterfall...….Paradise!
  • Thank you so much Vicky & Paul. Clove lodge is such a beautiful place, hosts are very welcoming and the fire was pre lit ready for us arriving. An amazing property with stunning views and walks around the reservoir just a short distance away. Thanks for having us and our dogs x

    Jonathan2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • The place is truly special but the location and scenery really stand out. You cannot pit a price on having a waterfall crash down as you sit in a sauna on a cold winters night. A true gem of a place.

    Andrew2019-12-15T00:00:00Z

I loved the fire too. The dogs had lots of long walks and places to explore! The local pub was a short 10 min drive and had lovely home made food!! Hosts were fab and really couldn’t do enough for us! Can’t wait to come back.

    We are located in beautiful Baldersdale, the half way point of the Pennine Way, which runs right past the Hay Loft making it a perfect stop off for weary walkers! It has been recently refurbished and sleeps up to 8 people in 3 bedrooms. There are shared facilities including a shower room and everything you would need to rustle up an energy packed meal. However if you don't fancy cooking meals can be provided at a small additional cost. Please note the price (£25) is per person per night
  • This is a perfect camping barn if you are walking the Pennine way. We stayed in December, and it is fairly chilly but then we are in the great outdoors so bring warm clothes and a good sleeping bag if you are coming in the winter! The fire is nice and everything works as it should. Mr Nibbles (the cat) was a welcome visitor.

    Abi&Mike2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great place in an amazing location. The view at night was spectacular. Lovely wood burner for heat source, yummy breakfast with home laid egg, and sweet kitten for company. Hosts are very friendly. I’d recommend this for any walker or someone passing by.

  • We had a great stay in the Shepard’s Barn. The area is beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed all the local walks right on your doorstep. The Shepard’s barn itself was fantastic and actually more tucked away than we thought it would be. We particularly liked the sheep to say hello to each morning! Thanks again and we hope to come back again soon. Tony & Jo

Robin is around on the campsite should you need anything.

  • The most comfortable bed we have ever slept in! Lovely hosts and great location. They were very helpful with information and we thought Barnard Castle and the Bowes Museum were interesting, and the local eateries were excellent so we would definitely go back.

    Sandie2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful room with lots of space and an extremely comfy bed and couch. Sue was really helpful with tips of places to eat and we enjoyed wandering around Barnard Castle before heading home - it's a great location for a halfway break on the way home from visiting family in Norfolk.

    Amanda2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Simply the best. You won’t be disappointed.

    Mark2019-11-02T00:00:00Z

    Emily2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • Very friendly hosts. Spotlessly clean accommodation. Quiet location, although within the town. Would thoroughly recommend.

    Jonathan2019-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • Sue & Arthur were wonderful hosts, friendly and welcoming from the start. They have a lovely property and our room was perfect for our one night stay. Enjoyed a lovely meal at Blagroves House Restaurant in Barnard Castle, worth booking. Whilst there is a bit of a wait for the food (as everything is cooked fresh to order), it is well worth it. Would definitely recommend Sue & Arthurs place to anyone wishing to stay in the area.

  • I had a wonderful night at Danielle's guest house. The room was small (as described) but very comfortable with nice little touches, the private bathroom was great. The highlight was definitely the included breakfast which was absolutely the best I have had in my 2.5 months of travel. Would recommend based on that alone, but the entire stay was lovely.

    Hilary2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • Outstanding B&B with the friendliest hosts who exude true joy and pride in providing warm, quality hospitality.

You are slap-bang in the middle of this busy town, but the flat was quiet and a perfect place from which to observe the activity below. The flat was perfect for our dog and allowed us lots of lovely walks along the Tees and nearby 'Demesnes'. We'll definitely be back.

    Perfect for a romantic getaway! Hylton Barn is a stunning one bedroomed barn conversion, set in the grounds of the historic Bowes Castle, having been spectacularly designed and renovated to the highest possible standards. Nestled among some of the most dramatic and scenic countryside in the North of England,uniquely located on the doorstep of the Pennine Way, one of England's most historic and beautiful national trails, offering some of the finest upland walking in England.
    Hylton Barn's renovations and design were inspired by trips to Scandinavia. This beautiful two storey stone structure is one of the loveliest examples in this area of a traditional built barn. It has exposed beams, lime rendered and traditionally plastered walls and many features revealed throughout. A fabulous cast iron wood burning stove awaits those cold wintry nights, and the polished stone floor is fitted with underfloor heating to keep you cosy too. The barn is bright, light and spacious, and perfectly placed on the Pennines for a long walk followed by a cosy snuggle in the evenings. Bedding is french linen and fine cotton with pure new wool duvets. The kitchen is well equipped and has a dishwasher and a small oven. Hylton House and Barn sit side by side in this superb area and can be rented together for parties of 6 - please see my other listing for details.
    Bowes, in upper Teesdale, has a surprisingly rich history for a quiet village and, back in the 1830s, it provided Charles Dickens with the inspiration for Dotheboys Hall, following his stay, which appears in his novel Nicholas Nickleby. Set in the dales, in countryside demarcated by dry stone walls and characterised by the gentle bleating of sheep, Bowes village is a tapestry of historical interest. Dating back to the ruins of the ancient monument, Bowes Castle occupies the north-west corner of the Roman fort, this was first built in 1087 for the earl of nearby Richmond, the castle was strategically important, controlling trade across the Pennines. Managed by English Heritage, the castle is free to visit.
  • Lovely place, clean modern and well thought out decor, location is unreal being on the door step of castle. I like it so much I've already booked a return trip!

    Eugene2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely cosy place, brilliant for coming home to after a long day of walking. Can quickly warm up with the underfloor hearing and log fire! The place itself was beautiful, we had an amazing stay Thankyou very much.

    Catherine2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Claire’s barn is impossible to fault. It is a beautifully crafted space with stylish and thoughtful decor and generous touches. It is furnished and equipped to a very high standard. The location is great for exploring the Durham and Yorkshire Dales and is on the Pennine Way providing great walking from the front door. It would be lovely to visit in Summer and picnic in the Castle grounds. The view from the bedroom window is stunning! Thanks Claire.

    Tricia2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • Hylton Barn is a beautiful barn conversion, thoughtfully done with some great touches of luxury - really like the piping hot shower and earn cosy stove. Would whole heartedly recommend this property.

    Paul2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • The perfect country retreat, a good size cottage, cosy, decorated to a high standard, with a great shower!! Located in a quiet little village, a decent local pub within walking distance. Lots of picturesque villages around with great walks and stunning views.

    Laura2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • From our first step into the lovely barn we loved it. The views (castle, landscape), the many windows, the colours, the materials...It was very comfortable and we felt "at home", when we came back from our hiking tours in pennines or Yorkshire dales. Thank you very much for hosting us, we missed nothing an enjoyed our stay very much.

    Wolfgang2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • We have previously stayed in Hylton House the property next door also available through Claire and Steve. We saw the renovations start on Hylton Barn and said when it was finished we would have to visit if it was going to be half as nice as Hylton House. And sure enough we weren’t disappointed. A beautiful well thought out barn conversation with everything you need for a comfortable stay. It’s so peaceful. The decor and finish is exceptional. The views are second to none. Who can say they have a castle in their garden. The ancient unicorn pub is a stones throw away where the bar staff will greet you as a local. Barnard Castle is 10 minutes drove away where you can buy everything f you’d ever need. we cant wait to return.

  • What a great find! Thanks for our goodies on arrival and loved the cottage it was stunning!

    Hannah2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Claire’s home is absolutely stunning and everything is catered for. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend a stay there if your after a little getaway like we were. We got out into the great outdoors by taking a three hour walk as recommended by Claire along the Pennine Way, literally starting out just at the end of the back lane past the castle. Very comfy bed and the most beautiful bath which was badly needed after a three hour walk. We made a visit to the pub just down the road for a few drinks and food was lovely. Thank you for a lovely stay, we hope to visit again soon. Janice

    Janice2020-02-20T00:00:00Z

    Bethan2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage is absolutely beautiful, it’s not one to be missed. There are so many nice features, details and luxuries to make such a comfortable, relaxing stay. The landscape from the back door is outstanding and there are many other interesting places to visit just a short drive away. This has been the perfect Xmas getaway, but we would love to come back in the summer months to really make the most of the walks nearby and visit some more surrounding places.

    Rose2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • Amazingly beautiful cottage, very clean and tidy. Apart from being at a very nice village, you still get the ruins of a 1,000 years castle in the backyard. And this is not a joke. A must seen attraction and a must staying place.

    This unusual house sleeps four very comfortably and offers the amazing views of the River Tees and Barnard Castle's castle! Perfect location for walking, bird watching, photography and touring the wonderful North East and in particular Teesdale and Weardale. Barnard Castle is a lovely town to wander around and the centre is only a 5 minute walk away. Perfect location for Kyren and local weddings. The house was converted in 2016 from The White Swan and is a very comfortable space.
    The house is Grade II Listed but with modern refurbishment inside. The space is furnished in a vintage style with original pieces. The entrance is on the ground floor which leads to a cloakroom and the lounge/dining area. Views of the River Tees and the castle. Downstairs is reached by paddle stairs (hence the concern about young children in the house) and one of the quirky features of this home! The stairs lead to a comfortable area which is currently used as a cinema room with beanbags to lounge on! On the first floor there is a modern kitchen (fridge freezer, washing machine and hob/oven), a bathroom and bedroom. The second floor houses the master bedroom with en suite and a room with air mattress and wardrobe space.
    Barnard Castle is a market town in Teesdale. Within the town are a selection of independent and high street shops together with a Morrisons supermarket. A larger selection of shops can be found in Bishop Auckland and Darlington. The town is full of interesting places to visit: the castle, Bowes Museum (built in the style of a French chateau opened in 1892) and for music and theatre lovers there is The Witham. You are close to High Force and Low Force, fantastic walks, Raby Castle and much, much more.
  • Kate is an excellent host and nothing is too much trouble. The house is gorgeous with lots of lovely little touches and the 'Cave' is an especially cozy space. Located just below the castle it's very convenient for walking to the high street. But I would happily sit in the window and watch the river all day. I would definitely recommend staying in this lovely, cozy cottage.

    Emily2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • A great base for Barnard Castle and Teesdale

    Charlotte Mendes2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great and unique place to spend time. The views over the river taking in the bridge and castle are outstanding. The house is exceptionally well finished, its warm and cosy. Everything is clean, with only sensible house rules. We'd certainly stay again.

    Ian2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • A really interesting & well appointed house in an attractive town. Bath & shower rooms are all exceptional. For our older children the cavern was a great place to watch a film. Great to sit in the chair by the lounge window watching the Tees go by. Flexible accommodation with plenty of room for 5 though dining table I recall seats 4 but we were eating out (The Three Horseshoes served good quality well priced food & popular - we had to book on a Wednesday night in late October). The house probably wouldn’t suit the infirm or family with very young children. Kate is a friendly & helpful host. Overall disappointed to leave & would definitely return if the opportunity arises.

    Peter2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • Light, bright, airy, stylish, sparkling clean and comfortable! Location is great for exploring Barnard Castle and surrounding area. If you are visiting B Castle and this is available - book it!

    Dee2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • A magical house with the most incredible views of the castle and river! Perfect base to explore the area, river walks, shops, castles and the spectacular high force waterfalls. Super comfortable and beautifully kept, we loved our stay!

    Daniel2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great cottage - a few minutes walk from Barnard Castle centre. Facilities were better than we expected in the house - would definitely stay again. Cavern room is ideal for a rainy day!

Welcoming touches such as fresh flowers, scones, cake, butter, milk etc. make you feel at home straight away and Tony and Peta are very helpful and keen to make your stay as great as possible. The cottage was very clean and had all the equipment we needed during our stay. The beds were also very comfortable and the cottage was warm and cosy, despite the rainy, windy weather outside. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage for a perfect 'get away from it all' break and have already booked to return for another stay!

Highly recommended.

Fairly toddler proof with no clutter, nooks or projections to cause anxiety.. and super soft carpets means your child can have a snooze anywhere. Nice location close to the town centre with all amenities at hand, including a decent Chinese takeaway and well place for Scotch Corner so a great base and easy to travel in any direction. Nice one!

  • Fantastic space, spotlessly clean with amazing amenities that went beyond air bnbs I've stayed in before. The garden room was lovely for chilling in with the Autumn sun coming through the windows (the garden would have been amazing in the summer but was a bit cold for us in oct!) Great location with lots to do in the area. We were 3 generations and everyone loved the house and area! June was a great host, checking in with us. A fabulous stay!

  • Fantastic stay at June’s house - we couldn’t have asked for more. We will definitely be requesting to stay again when we return to the area. Thank you!

    Sarah2019-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • For once the pictures are true of the house itself. Great property, had everything we need and extremely clean and tidy. June the host was fantastic with communication and had some great tips on where to go. Loved the place and will certainly be back.

    Dave2019-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • This is an incredible place to stay. The cottage was beautiful with incredible views and very well equipped for our family. The welcome box was amazing and beyond all our expectations, and June was lovely box at check in and check out. The location was great for exploring the north east -- we visited picturesque Durham, a variety of castles and high force waterfall, all in the four nights we spent there. We couldn't have asked for more!

    A brand new modern detached property. It is warm and airy with a spacious feel to it. I am situated in a cul de sac which is quiet with friendly neighbours. The view from your bedroom has a promenade of poplar trees with lots of natural light. The kitchen has a small breakfast table where you can enjoy your continental breakfast. I have high standards of cleanliness and will do my best to ensure you have a relaxed, comfortable and enjoyable stay.
    I have lived in Barnard Castle for 28 years having returned from the Far East where I grew up. I'm an affable and gregarious person who enjoys meeting people from all walks of life.
    The town is a short walk away from my house. We have the Witham Hall which boasts a fabulous comedy club and regular theatre productions in addition to the famous Bowes Museum a few hundred yards away on Newgate.
  • Perfect place to stop for the night and relax to break up the drive from North to South. The house and room were sparkling clean. There was a nice table in the kitchen set up for us to have breakfast at the next morning. Thank you Jane!

    Helena2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was perfect and Jane is a lovely host. She was kind enough to provide breakfast, which was unexpected, and checking in and out was super easy.

    Jodie2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • Very friendly welcome, spotlessly clean, quiet and comfortable. Great value for money.

    Keith2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Had a lovely time staying at this house- was really easy to check in. The house was super clean and had everything that you would need and we got treated to breakfast- even accommodating for my boyfriend who is gluten free. Very close to barnard castle which was really convenient for us as we were attending a wedding.

    Sam2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely perfect stay! Super decor, comfy and clean. Would definitely stay there again!

    Come and enjoy our newly opened Pool House, with pool, hot-tub, gym and games room. One bedroom cottage with open plan living area, separate bedroom and bathroom. Wonderful views, in undiscovered part of the English countryside. 4 star rated. Please note that changeover days are Friday or Monday only, unless it is at short notice, when we may be able to be more flexible.
    A cosy open plan living area - kitchen, dining area, large sofa, reclining Lazy-boy chair. Separate bedroom and bathroom. Ideal for one or two people. Access to a communal swimming pool, hot-tub, gym and games room (see pictures). Pool and hot-tub can be reserved for private use at no extra charge.
    A beautiful, undiscovered part of the English countryside. The village of Cotherstone is 2 miles away, and has 2 pubs, a cafe, and a village shop/newsagent/post office. The market town of Barnard Castle is 6 miles away, and has a supermarket and lots of quality independent shops.
  • Me and my wife stayed at the studio part of East Briscoe Cottages, and weren’t disappointed with our stay. Comfortably enough space for a stay for a few nights or longer. Well appointed ground floor flat, with a good enough kitchen to prepare meals... we dined in for all three nights. Great bathroom and a bedroom that was so so quiet. If you need to get out then the hot tub, pool, gym and games room is a small walk away, which we made full use of as we needed to unwind. The cottages are well positioned to explore the area, but you will need a car to get to the local village of Cotherstone... but that’s why you come here. To get away from it all. We had a great day walking, with the mandatory pub stop. We also had a short drive to high force waterfall and the town of Castle Barnard all in the space of three days. Emma was attentive (thanks for the plastic glasses) but also gave us room to relax and enjoy the weekend. A fantastic place and if you need a place with quality accommodation that is well positioned but in a peaceful rural area then your search stops here. Thanks Chris and Emma you have wonderful accommodation.

    Jarrod2018-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend and I had the best three nights at the studio!! We were very lucky with the weather whilst we were there and were able to take full advantage of the beautiful countryside surrounding us. The hosts left us lovely biscuits which we ate whilst sitting on the bench outside the cottage in the sunshine. The best Airbnb we have stayed at!

    Natalie2018-06-28T00:00:00Z
  • The studio cottage was lovely! The kitchen and bathroom are new, clean and large enough for what was needed. The bedroom is quite snug but fine for being only needed to sleep in! We were welcomed with a plate of homemade biscuits with fresh milk, tea and coffee available which was lovely. Chris checked in on us to make sure all was ok but otherwise we were left to it. Plenty of information about our cottage, the site and local area including recommendations was available to read and this was helpful. We really enjoyed the gym/pool house which is a fab addition and has great views. We felt really relaxed here and took a nice walk one evening with bunnies, sheep and other things to see. Oh and the chickens are funny...one friendly one joined us for breakfast! Overall, great place and great value! Will hopefully be back again!!

    Sarah2018-06-13T00:00:00Z
  • A wondeful homely cottage with everything you need. The bathroom and kitchen have recently been refurbished and there’s a lot more space than the photos would suggest! The pool and games room were fab and although a bit of a drive from local shops I would definitely go back.

    Kirsty2017-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place, views were phenomenal and the place is really homey, would definitely recommend it for any couple/family/ group of friends !!!

    Jade2017-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • The studio is a really lovely place to stay, it is clean and modern (the new kitchen and bathroom especially). The location is perfect for a quiet secluded break, we had the perfect honeymoon and appreciated the homemade biscuits and the bottle of prosecco left for us in the fridge. The pool and hot tub are a real bonus too. Would recommend staying here :)

    Lucy2017-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Chris and Emma were very welcoming hosts and their place was perfect for our needs. They have a lovely, peaceful rural set up and yet it's only 10 mins in the car from Barnard Castle and 5 mins by car to the local pub (The Fox and Hounds in Cotherstone) which is also well worth a visit. :-) All in all it's really very good value and with a hot tub which can be booked for individual use, together with a communal games room it made for a really enjoyable and relaxing stay.

    Stuart2017-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • The place was lovely. So comforting and romantic to spend for my boyfriends birthday. We absolutely loved it. Such a beautiful surrounding and amazing places to visit. The hot tub and pool definitely completed our stay and we had such an amazing time. We're already planning our 2nd trip. The hosts are lovely and we communicated well. Generous cookies and tea upon arrival after an 8 hour journey stuck in traffic from London. Definitely recommend visiting Barnard Castle if you do stay at the cottage!!

    Adam2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic space and amenities, Andrew was a great host. The apartment wants for nothing and the farm is amazing with trails and is central to exploring the area and the Pennines way. A great place to relax after a long walk on the moors. I recommend Andrew’s apartment
