Anne is a charming hostess and the cottage is superb in every respect and exceeded our expectations. There are many places to visit in this wonderful area. Barnard Castle is very close where you can get anything you want. We enjoyed our stay and wish we had booked it for longer. We would definitely recommend it to all ou friends and family.
the property was first class and very comfortable
we enjoyed the property and the stunning views, there was everything you needed in the house, it was exceptionally clean, tidy and comfortable. The owners were very accommodating and looked after us very well. We would definitely return to explore more of the area, Barnard Castle was very nice, with Bowes museum a must see. Raby Castle also worth a visit and we also enjoyed the evening at the open air show Kynren. The next time will be for a longer visit.
Great property in a lovely position
We had a wonderful weeks stay at Kearton Lodge. The cottage is very nice and comfortable. Anne was very accommodating and even had cakes, fruit juice and milk waiting for us. The views from the lodge look straight over the rolling country side. The area was great to explore. Barnard Castle is a lovely town. We were spoilt weather wise as the week we stayed was the hottest this year. We will definitely be staying again. I would recommend this accommodation to anyone who wants a great holiday cottage in an outstanding area with lovely owners.
Fantastic 5* Stay
We have just had 5 wonderful days at the Kearton Lodge from arrival to departure we have enjoyed every moment.
On arrival Anne gave us a lovely welcome along with a full introduction to the cottage answered any questions we had gave info on the local area and were to visit etc.... and even had the kettle on ready for us with fresh warm scones.
The cottage is fantastic and has everything you need the little extra touches are so lovely (easter egg bunny) and fresh flowers along with high quality toiletries and the beautiful smelling reed diffusers all make it extra special
The cottage is of such a high standard and is a real treat and you feel welcome and at home from walking in.
We used the sauna during our stay which was brilliant and was such a lovely thing to have been able to use.
We re-booked with Anne just as we left for a stay over christmas and new year and we cannot wait to return
Thank you for a great holiday

A Wonderful Retreat
We have just returned home following 3 perfect days at Anne's wonderful relaxing, retreat.
We were warmly welcomed by Anne on our first evening and made to feel at home immediately. The lodge is amazing, and immaculately maintained throughout, and it is clear to see why it has the 5 star (Gold) award, although Anne alone deserves the 5* award for her hospitality as following our warm welcome we were provided with delicious cake, the offer to use the sauna, and information regarding the local area. Anne had also provided additional luxuries throughout the lodge such as fresh flowers, and beautiful fragrances, that all assisted in providing a wonderful, relaxing environment for our stay.
During our stay we walked in the beautiful countryside, shopped in nearby Barnard Castle, enjoyed the quaint tea rooms, and also relaxed in the beautiful lodge as there was everything you required to stay in and enjoy the rest, if so desired. We both felt so relaxed and rejuvenated following our break and easily could have stayed longer.
This property is an absolutely delightful find and we cannot wait to return to this very special retreat. Thank you so much Anne for a wonderful stay!
A Perfect Retreat!
We have just experienced the most wonderful, relaxing weekend staying in Kearton Lodge. This was our first stay and we were warmly welcomed by Anne on our arrival and greeted with delicious cake and many additional luxuries during our stay, that easily demonstrated why this property was awarded 5 stars! During our stay we walked in the beautiful countryside and relaxed in the luxurious lodge. On our departure we felt so relaxed and revived which was amazing considering this was only a 3 night stay. We certainly did not want to leave, and cannot wait to return to this absolutely delightful find.
A wonderful and very memorable New Year! Thank you Anne.
