“We stayed at Thelma & Gordon's cottage whilst visiting relatives and house hunting in the nearby area. The location was absolutely perfect and the 10 minute walk into Barnard Castle was perfect for us to enjoy a drink or two in the evening and try the restaurants in 'Barney'. Thelma provided very good, clear instructions prior to check in and communication was always prompt. The Cottage was spotlessly clean and really cosy. The home made cakes and scones were a lovely touch and it made a nice change to find some fresh milk in the fridge too! I can't say much more other than I fully recommend the cottage, its clean, comfortable, well furnished & ideally located to explore Barnard Castle and surrounding areas. Parking nearby to the cottage was readily available and free.”

“Rachel’s place is absolutely gorgeous! We stayed for the weekend to attend our friends wedding in Barnard Castle and cannot recommend No.3 highly enough. It is beautifully furnished, warm welcoming and comfy with exquisite touches like fresh flowers and helpful info. Rach is a fabulously helpful and responsive host. We also felt our stay was really great value for money and will 100% be back. Thank you so much for lending us your lovely home! Alex and Josh ☺️ X”
