Stables Cottage, Barnard Castle

This charming Yorkshire Dales holiday property lies two miles away from Whorlton and is situated on a former farm three miles from Barnard Castle.

The property is served by underfloor heating, making it a cosy place to stay off-season and in the depths of winter. There is also an outdoor play area for the children and a small private courtyard for guests to relax. To the rear of the property is open farmland and many pathways to explore, making this an idyllic rural retreat at any time of year.

Want for nothing!

A very comfortable, well equipped, warm (underfloor heating) cottage. Everything we needed was there. Within easy reach of Barnard Castle where there was a large supermarket & lots of individual shops & a weekly market. Very close to Bowes Castle if weather is inclement. Within easy reach of beautiful countryside & attractive towns & villages. An excellent base, with friendly helpful owners.
