Wonderful place to stay, nice and clean. Town center around the corner and beautiful museum closeby.

  • 5 of 5

Top marks to the helpful owners Michael and Pauline Hanby who live next door for a lovely self-catering cottage with everything you need.

Delightful shops in the town, one's that you cannot find in my country Holland anymore. We enjoyed a meal at Clarendons but there are plenty of places to eat and drink.

The bus to Darlington gives access to the trains to ex. Edinburgh. The Bowes museum is a must.

So Barnard Castle was really a wonderful surprise with walks, castle and bus rides; we tell our friends what a lovely part of England it is.

I must confess the weather was superb but we were always happy to return to the cottage after daily trips.

The perfect place to stay for comfort and convenience

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't fault Wood Street Cottage.

Don't pack anything other than your clothes because it's all there, everything you could possibly need and really good food shops are just a short walk away.

Barnard Castle has much to explore and makes an excellent base for a holiday.

Very spacious, well equipped cottage which made for a comfortable stay.

  • 4 of 5

Although only two bedrooms, the master had lots of room and plenty of storage for large suitcases etc. The second one was perfect for our 3 year old but lack of a wardrobe would cause difficulties if you needed more space.

There was everything you would need and more, extremely well equipped cottage. The welcome tray of flapjacks and homemade jam was lovely and we found cooking very straightforward, although lack of a dishwasher meant more washing up than usual.

The location was great, 5 mins walk from the centre but quiet enough to be peaceful. Parking was difficult as roads were narrow and no view from the windows or garden but the courtyard was lovely and a nice place to relax if the sun lingered on an evening. Overall a very pleasant stay in well maintained, centrally located home from home.

Beautiful property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had such a fantastic stay at Wood Street Cottage - the accommodation is spotlessly clean and very well stocked with everything you need to make it a home from home. The owners were extremely welcoming and helpful and went out of their way to make the stay enjoyable for our little girl - providing toys and books. We can't fault it and will definitely be back to stay again!

Extremely well appointed with everything you might need provided. Very consideration owner who lives just next door. Very easy access to the centre of the town and own parking just outside the front door.

We would be happy to recommend this property to friends and family and we will definitely book this cottage again.

Well equipped cottage in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage has been recently refurbished and has everything you need such as kitchen equipment, iron, hairdryer etc. The owners next door were very welcoming and helpful. The cottage location is great, 5 minutes walk to the town centre (with lovely ice cream shops and a variety of good restaurants). There's also a big Morrisons five minutes walk away and the river and lovely walks are all around so that we didn't need to use the car. Would thoroughly recommend the place.
