Overview
Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Barnard Castle, Durham, England
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.

Holiday guests can enjoy nature walks around the estate, fishing on the estate and in nearby reservoirs, free-range eggs from the resident hens and seasonal food from the vegetable garden and orchard.

We have just opened our new leisure facility, which currently boasts a 6 seater hot-tub, and an 'Endless Pool' swimming pool with current. We are just putting the finishing touches to the gym area and games room. The games room will shortly have a pool/table tennis/air hockey table, bean bags and library area. The gym currently has a treadmill, more equipment to come soon.

I've always loved Upper Teesdale but never thought to stay on holiday. This is a beautiful area. Villages are as beautiful as the Cotswolds but no one has ever heard of them outside the North East. Huge amount of industrial heritage - lead mining / now healed and blended into the landscape and plenty of "big house/ big estate" history...

My husband and I have just returned from a week spent in Barn Cottage with our black labrador Bonnie. The location of this cottage is absolutely stunning and we were easily able to visit family in Durham city (50 mins), the Lake District (1 hour to Ullswater) and the Yorkshire dales (30mins). There are also any number of wonderful places...

The dining room leads from the sitting room to a large separate kitchen, which includes a dishwasher.

Ferry: Newcastle: 80.0 km
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...
