Great location. Quiet. Log burner. Induction hob. Kitchen equipment. Decor. Towels. Comfy bed. Welcome pack. Wine. Flowers. Outdoor seating. Path to back gate.
Tricky parking for our estate car. Square heavy plates and bowls. Fiddly key box. Numerous messages to do with booking from various sources.



great communication with the hosts. clean and tidy, great location, lovely welcome hamper.



Stunning Cottage. We arrived late and the Cottage was lovely and warm. It is decorated to a very high standard and all appliances are top spec. All the bedding and towels are top quality and the Cottage was spotless. Love the pictures around the Cottage. The basket of goodies on arrival were amazing and also the items in the fridge. This all makes a big difference. I have stayed in alot of Air Bnb and this Cottage is by far the best one. A short walk into town. We also cycled to Middleton in Teesdale, you can pick up the Tees Trail and cycle the old rail track, 20mile round trip. We didn't want to leave and will definitely be back. This Cottage is a must.



Beautifully presented cottage, very well equipped and totally spotless. We found it to be comfortable and cosy and the welcome hamper was amazing. Fantastic location for walking into town and walks along the river. We loved it.
Couldn’t fault it.



Decor and Cleanliness. Owner's response to a WiFi problem was instant and resolved in 30 minutes.
Car parking was restricted to0 only 1 car but at this time of year there was public parking across the main road



Super house, beautiful inside, great location, would definitely recommend staying here.

Great communication. Our colleagues loved it and made it a great home from home. Would and have booked again. Thankyou very much :)



We had a relaxing time at the cottage. We chose this property because of the location just across the bridge from Barnard Castle and because pets are allowed on the ground floor of the property. Access was by a key safe for which we had already been sent the code. There was a comprehensive book of instructions about the cottage which was helpful. The cottage was very clean and welcoming due in part to the comprehensive included grocery pack. The cottage kitchen is very well equipped with cooker, hob, microwave, 50% fridge/freezer, crockery, pans etc. The two bedrooms included 1 with double bed and 1 at the back with twin beds. There is a large screen smart TV which included Netflix and other apps and I was able to use my own Firestick TV. The 4G internet wasn't working when we arrived, however the owner responded immediately by SMS text with advice how to restart, which restored the service. It subsequently worked at speeds between 3MBps to 22MBps. The parking is just in front of the cottage. Although it seemed a little tight for me, as I am currently driving a 5m long T5 campervan, I was able to leave sufficient room for others to pass and none of the neighbours complained. There are lots of excellent dog walks within walking distance. Your dog's quick morning and evening exercise needs to be done away from the property by crossing the road. This is busy at peak times, so keep your wits about you. This cottage was a good place to stay which I recommend.



Clean, well equipped and comfortable home from home in a great location.
Very small outdoor area and somewhat awkward parking but plenty space available nearby.



Great little place, wonderful location right by the castle. Well equipped and very nicely furnished. Excellent for a small family (and dog).



Really enjoyed our stay and the cottage was beautifully decorated. We had everything we needed and the breakfast and food gift basket was helpful. Location was great, just a short walk into the town centre. Nice shops and cafes. Parking was easy.All information was in the handbook. Wi-Fi and TV was easy to access.
I really can't fault anything. The only thing I could suggest is 2 sets of keys so that each person can access the house if they are out separately.



barnyard castle is a delightful town and we enjoyed being so close.
the bed is good, wood burning stove, too. welcome package thoughtful.
one must cross a busy thoroughfare to access a place for the dogs to do their business, often stressful in the early morning. kitchen well outfitted. we were easily able to self-cater. place looks more spacious than on the pictures. communication with an agency is less personal than with the other 3 airbnb locations we had on this trip. all that said, we enjoyed our time there.



Lovely stay here, spotlessly clean and in great location. We loved it



Location was great for town and for walking
Outside space small
Coffee table in lounge would be nice



Fantastic house. Everything there you could need, right down to an electric whisk. All top quality appliances. No cutting corners here. Worth every penny! So handy to the castle but yet quiet. Wonderful week there!



Very clean and quiet cottage with all the amenities we needed and close to Yorkshire wand Durham Dales.
