Town: The market town of Barnard Castle stands on the site of an ancient Roman ford in the glorious unspoiled countryside of Teeside. The town takes its name from its 12th Century founder, Bernard de Balliol. The castle was later developed by the Beauchamp family and Richard III, and the ruin of the castle still dominates the settlement, set on a high rock above the town overlooking the River Tees and is well worth a visit. The town itself has lovely cobbled streets and back lanes ready to be explored. The surrounding area is home to some fabulous walking country, with the Pennine Way, Teeside Way and the magnificent High Force waterfalls all close to hand. This area is home to some great family attractions and is a tremendous location for an enjoyable holiday.

Had a wonderful few days here and very grateful for the flexibility to only have 6 nights fitting in with another holiday. Super owners and enjoyed gentle pace of life. Very relaxing. Great place to visit the surrounding area from. Really appreciated the 'goodies' on arrival. Thank you.
...this is what our week was, in this beautiful cottage - everything we needed. Owners on hand if we needed them. Fully equipped kitchen, we cooked all our meals from scratch, large fridge with ice box. Large - easy to use electric fan-assisted oven, micro, kettle, toaster, TV, DVD player, wifi, huge bathroom with separate shower, loads of very soft towels Extremely comfortable bed, set of drawers. Would definitely stay again. The dog loved it too - first time away for him & he's an 8 year old large dog (rotti-cross). Welcome pack of wine, fresh eggs from owners hens, milk & biscuits was a lovely surprise - loads of leaflets on what to do in the area. Small patio with table & two chairs. We had a totally relaxing stay of a week that went by far too quickly.

I absolutely loved this place! Set in the middle of no where, perfectly furnished, lovely cottage, a local town about 10 minute drive away which has everything you can need. The only down side was lack of mobile signal but if you want the perfect get away that's no problem! I will definetely be returning and recommending to friends as it's perfect!
A week of tranquility

The cottage is in a peaceful location but is an easy centre for heading into Weardale, Teesdale or to the larger towns towards the east coast. Barnard Castle, a few miles away, is a lovely small town with all amenities. We found no shortage of things to do or places and attractions to visit. We were warmly welcomed to a comfortable, well equipped cottage in a quiet valley, part of an industrial heritage, and with walks from the doorstep. We would be only too happy to go back again and certainly recommend the cottage to anyone seeking a week of tranquillity.

Excellent cottage with the most welcoming reception from the owners, everything is available for you to just go in and relax.
Phone signal/reception is limited which may be of concern if you need to be in touch with relatives or friends, but great if you don't want to be disturbed.
Travelling to anywhere is not hard, but a car is a necessity, or be ardent walkers!!
Whatever you decide, this is an ideal location for adults who are looking for peace and quiet.
Ps: take plenty of jungle spray as you are the main source of food for the midges at night if you want to sit outside !!!

I booked this at very short notice, but the process was very easy and efficient.The owners were there to meet me with the key, and nothing was too much trouble. The standard of the furnishings and decor of this lovely little cottage, is excellant. The welcome pack included fresh eggs from their own hens, biscuits, tea,coffee, sugar , milk and wine. The bathroom also had bath and shower gel, and soap. the only downside was the lack of mobile phone reception, but that may be a bonus to some people, and they do have wifi connected. The location was perfect for touring around the Barnard castle, Teesdale area, and is in a very secluded spot for peace and quiet.
