Barnard Castle, Durham, England
A group of 5 adjoining cottages, sleeping 17 in total - there are 2 one-bedroom cottages and 3 two-bedroom.

We have just opened our new leisure facility, with a swimming pool, hot-tub, gym and games room.

The holiday cottages are situated in Baldersdale (made famous as the former home of Hannah Hauxwell), two miles from the village of Cotherstone, which has two excellent pubs and a village shop/post office.

First visit to East Briscoe and certainly won’t be the last. We’ve stayed in lots of cottages before but the bonus of the resistance pool, jacuzzi and games room drew us to here. The stunning scenery was the icing on the cake. Lots of friendly furry neighbours and great for spotting wildlife!

I booked all 5 cottages for my group and I, over the weekend, to celebrate my 25th birthday, and it definitely had more than enough space + more left over. Everything was perfect for my needs; Communication From...

Coming From the South on the A1

If using M1, carry on when it joins the A1. Turn off at Scotch Corner onto the A66. Carry on for about 10 miles then turn right onto the B6277, signposted to Barnard Castle. Stay on this road past Barnard Castle, through Lartington to Cotherstone (4 miles from BC).

Coming From the M6

From the North, turn off at J40 onto the A66.

From the South, exit at J38 and follow signs to Brough (A685). About 4.5 miles after Kirkby Stephen, turn right onto the A66 East.

Where the A66 splits, bear left onto the A67. Immediately after the junction, there is a small turn-off to the left, signposted to Cotherstone. This is a very small, isolated moor road, which is great to drive, but should probably be avoided in bad weather. If you take it, turn left when you reach Co...
