A lovely cottage with everything you could ask for and more

  • 5 of 5

We were made to feel very welcome and Anne bent over backwards to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we wanted. Home baked scones with jam and cream were waiting for us on arrival, a lovely touch. The cottage was well maintained and furnished to a high standard. We had everything we could possibly need. Books, magazines, games, dvds were all provided if we needed them. The views from the cottage were lovely and it made a good base to explore the surrounding area. Hopefully we will be back for many more visits. Barnard Castle, The Bowes Museum, Bowlees visitor centre and the walk from Low Force to High Force are all well worth a visit.

Perfect and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Kearton Cottage was a lovely experience.

We were met with a lovely welcoming smile from Anne, and the cottage was spotlessly clean and very well maintaned.

The cottage is in a beautiful spot, overlooking Barnard Castle and is very accessible to so many places., eg Darlington, Leyburn, Bishop Aukland, Richmond , Beamish, The Lakes.You are never far from anywhere.

Anne is extremely helpful and professional and only a phone call away if you need her.

A massage , and sauna are available on request and only next door.

This proprety has beeen very well thought out for it's purpose and is a total retreat .

I would thourghly recommend this cottage and deserves the 5 stars credited to it.
