handy location
very grey but that’s not a huge criticism



A lovely comfortable place to stay. Very clean and quiet. Regarding Air B and B there wasn’t anything for breakfast- no milk for a cup of tea. So more Air B



Excellent cottage just off the high street and walking distance to pubs, shops and restaurants



Good location on edge of town centre, so quiet at night, especially in its cul-de-sac location. Kitchen looked well-equipped, but was wasted on me, as I was using it as a place to sleep in order to attend functions in the town and visit friends, so ate out for all meals. TV is Firestick equipped, so able to log onto my own account and watch my Netflix/Amazon Video, as well as use apps like iPlayer, All4, ITV Hub, etc. Both bedrooms are ensuite shower-rooms with sink & toilet and water pressure was good in shower. The hot water temperature was also good. Bed was comfortable, bedside lockers have storage cupboards in them and there are electric sockets both sides.
Somewhat lacking in storage space in bedrooms - e.g. no wardrobe, but a chrome coat stand for hanging things on hangers and what I presume was a trouser stand for hanging two pairs of folded trousers (never seen something like it before).
Dressing table is only a free-standing "bench" three feet wide by six inches deep, due to space constraints, and has no drawers, so doesn't accommodate much clutter.
Hand basin in ensuite is about the size of a wok and, typical of a bowl shape, it takes little to get water sloshing all over the place. I have a dislike of square toilet seats, but that's me, and the design of the seat attachment to the toilet is, as with many modern designs, prone to torque resulting in the seat twisting and not sitting centrally on the porcelain base. The only place to store stuff in the ensuite is around the hand basin (which gets wet) or on the window sill behind the toilet.
Car access up the narrow mews is difficult with anything but the smallest car, and requires reversing out. More difficult again if the next door property is also occupied. Street parking in town can be difficult to find: I was lucky to find a spot immediately outside - my neighbours also parked elsewhere, but I don't know where.
The external environment was, however, a mess - higgledy-piggledy waste/recycling bins, some with lids open and full to the brim, litter (and probably overflow from the bins) strewn all over the mews area outside the property. Not a great welcoming sight.



A really nice, cosy, comfortable home, centrally located and ideally placed to enable us to easily walk to the shops, restaurants and historic sites of Barnard Castle. Parking was available on site and there was free parking on the nearby streets making it easy to explore the local area beyond the town itself. The information our host provided prior to, and during, our stay was really useful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will look to stay here again whenever we return to the town.



A hidden gem. Close to the main street, but tucked away down a driveway, so very quiet. Parking space next to the property. Comfortably and stylishly furnished with a well equipped kitchen. Barnard Castle itself is historic, quaint, characterful, very friendly. We found some beautiful walks by the river, and enjoyed the local shops and market. We were visiting with our dog, who was very comfortable too and was made a fuss of by the locals every time we went out. Cafe round the corner recommended for full English breakfast. We hope to return!



No toilet paper, washing up liquid, bin liners, salt, pepper etc provided. Very limited range of kitchen utensils. Bins outside overflowing. Random door in the kitchen leading into an external garage which wouldn’t lock. Tap fixture not properly fitted. Very overpriced - would not recommend.

Lovely property. Good location



Excellent location,very quiet,lovely property but severe maintenance problems..central heating did not work on arrival,then broke down again overnight....garage where boiler was situated was crammed with bags of rubbish including food waste...Outside where I parked had builders rubbish including broken wood and pallets leaning on property....wife wanted to use oven dish to cook in the morning but had dead spider in it....it had been there a while...
Working heating,rubbish cleaned up and generally checking over before guests arrive...company in charge should make sure all is ok on a regular basis...



Lovely cozy place in a wonderful location. Center to the town, but tucked away and quiet. Handy for country walks from the door as well.
