  • A stunning barn conversion in beautiful County  Durham
  • Set in a wonderfully secluded spot near the Teesdale Way
  • This fantastic property is perfect for celebrations and family get-togethers
  • Relax in the hot tub and enjoy the rural views
  • Perfect for exploring the North Pennines and Yorkshire Dales
  • Discover the charming towns of Richmond and Barnard Castle
Property code: G0126

Set in glorious open countryside in Teesdale, this stunning barn conversion has been designed to cater for larger groups looking to get together and celebrate in beautiful surroundings.

Imagine yourself amidst friends or family, wandering the high wilds of the North Pennines or Yorkshire Dales (4/14 miles), and returning from days of adventure to this dreamy abode, secluded in County Durham's deep green tranquillity. Discover the glittering treasures of Barnard Castle (5.5 miles), a medieval market town straddling the River Tees, and savour scrumptious local produce at the monthly farmers' market or the myriad marvellous restaurants, bistros and pubs. Explore the French-style chateau of the Bowes Museum (6 miles) and exquisite Eggleston Hall Gardens (3 miles), known as the ‘Secret Garden of the North', or simply browse the antiques, boutiques and superb independent shops. Romaldkirk and Cotherstone (4/6 miles) are quintessential Durham villages, with old stone houses, terrific dale views and some tremendous country pubs. Ramble the Tees Railway Walk and the Teesdale Way from one to the other, for spectacular views of river, hill and cliff.

As you follow the lengthy track through fields towards the cottage, you'll immediately sense the special atmosphere that surrounds this idyllic location. Who wouldn't wish to be welcomed by a chandelier and sweeping staircase above the flagstone hall? Let the light, space and elegance of the open-plan living/kitchen/dining area encourage you to create and enjoy banquets, cooked within a wood, chrome and quartz haven. Sink into leather sofas around the wood burner or in the cosy corner for nights of red wine to reminiscence; re-join around the bespoke oak table for bright morning breakfasts. Spill out onto the paved courtyard for sweet rural air and delicious Durham scenes. Underfloor heating, oak beams, pendant lights and high, pitched ceilings set the chic, country mood. Soak in the bathroom's dove-grey bliss, or in the sweet en-suite of your own decadent bedroom; each has its own distinct charisma, with fine fabrics, vibrant vistas, stylish furniture and fabulous furnishings. Wind down with your own TV before you sleep and dream of tomorrow.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

With its elevated position, it enjoys uninterrupted views down over the River Tees and Teesdale Way beyond. It is the perfect location if you enjoy walking with a myriad of beautiful routes nearby including three local reservoirs, the High and Low Force waterfalls, and Hamsterley Forest. It's also a superb location for mountain biking if you want to bring your bikes along.

Just 4 miles from the cottage is the historic market town of Barnard Castle. Recently listed as one of the ‘top 10 rural places to live in the UK’, there is a host of boutique shops, cafes and pubs to explore. The excellent Bowes Museum is here and is well worth a visit. As the name would suggest, there's an English Heritage castle to discover too.

Other nearby attractions include Eggleston Hall and Gardens (3.5 miles) which has a great cafe on-site, Raby Castle at Staindrop (11 miles) and Auckland Castle (19 miles) - all excellent options for days out with the family. The cottage is also within easy reach of Richmond (19 miles), a historic market town with much to offer the discerning holidaymaker. Explore the cobbled market square or head up towards Richmond Castle for a slice of Yorkshire history. The cottage is also well placed for a day trip over to the Lakes and Durham City if you want to explore those areas too.

Our group loved our stay at this property. Spotless, brilliantly equipped and spacious. The views were fantastic. Having a pub that served food within walking distance was a definite bonus. The only downside is the road leading to the property (single track) is full of potholes and needs some attention. Apart from that, it is perfect.
