Gainford, England, United Kingdom

Gainford is an historic village with a beautiful green, two churches, & with charming riverside walks along the River Tees that forms part of the Teesdale way. Opposite the flat is the Cross Keys pub if you wish to have a quick drink during the day or settle in for the evening for a few more. The historic Market Town of Barnard Castle is 7 miles away, where you will find the Bowes Museum and castle ruins, and nearby is Raby Castle with its beautiful grounds and large Deer herd. There are several excellent places to eat in the vicinity such as The Bridgewater Arms at Winston (2 miles away), The Fox Hole at Piercebridge (3 miles away) and the Michelin starred Raby Hunt at Summerhouses (4 miles away).

I'm a self employed Property Developer (hence the holiday lets!) and live in my native North East with my Wife and two children. I've a love for football and over the past year have become a qualified football coach for a local youth team now that my playing days are (nearly!) over and I also sit on my local Parish Council. As a host I am aiming to be helpful and respectful and I hope that people staying at my properties enjoy the local area I love as much as I do.
