Church Cottage

A delightful Grade II listed semi-detached cottage located in a tranquil conservation area of the popular market town of Barnard Castle. In an enviable location, a stone’s throw from the town's bustling high street, this beautiful cottage has been lovingly restored to a high standard and is full of charm and character throughout. It benefits from a quiet and peaceful setting, opening onto a picturesque churchyard. There are two bedrooms, both boasting beautiful original fireplaces, the main bedroom is particularly spacious and includes a king-size bed and there’s also a stylish family bathroom. Downstairs you will find an inviting and relaxing sitting room complete with a woodburning stove, perfect for nights in with family or friends in the chillier months. You will also find a well-equipped and spacious kitchen/diner, ideal for family meals or preparing a picnic for a day out exploring the wonderful Yorkshire Dales. Barnard Castle's high street is a real gem, offering fantastic independent shops, pubs and cafes, as well as a weekly market. A short walk from the cottage is the impressive Bowes Museum, with its colourful collection of European art. Nearby attractions include the breathtaking High Force, England's highest waterfall, the historic Raby Castle, stunning Witham Hall, Egglestone Hall and its walled gardens and Egglestone Abbey, an abandoned monastery on the banks of the River Tees. Why not visit the historic market towns of Richmond and Ripon, not to mention the northern Dales towns of Reeth and Hawes. Less than an hour’s drive away is the beautiful city of Durham and its magnificent cathedral which is well worth a visit. With the Yorkshire Dales National Park within an hour’s drive, this cottage makes for a fantastic base to explore the stunning County Durham countryside.

Two bedrooms: 1 x king-size double, 1 x twin. Bathroom with bath, shower over, basin and WC. Kitchen with dining area. Sitting room with woodburning stove.
