We had a very warm welcome and early check in. There were two boxes of age appropriate toys for our baby and superb level of equipment through out. The en-suite sauna was definitely an added treat for me!! Lovely out door play equipment for the children and high level of comfort and thoughtfulness in everything. Would look to come and stay again and have recommended it already. The added bonus of being in a Tesco delivering are made this a really easy and relaxing holiday. The beautiful market Town of Barnard Castle is only 10 mins drive away, easy access to Darlington, and some fantastic scenery on your door step!

Great location hard to choose what we liked most, but adored Barnard Castle a big hit with my 2 young grandsons.Plenty of places to explore and good places to eat, so plan to go back
on the downside, felt the shower could have been cleaner but soon sorted that. some wonderful memories, thank you.
Quiet location. Convenient for seeing the area.

Very warm, comfortable large property which is well equipped. Since its initial renovation some parts of the property are beginning to look tired and in need of some TLC. A good spruce up and some minor maintenance work would do the trick.
We enjoyed our stay. Very friendly owners.
happy scotts on holiday
