We chose the property because we wanted a quiet place where we could simply relax with a book. The conservatory and the outdoor terrace delivered in spades! We are keen walkers and the town has two excellent walks. The first by the Methodist Church starting in the centre of town, leads past the castle and down into Flatts woods. The second starts at the accommodation and follows the river to the ancient abbey ruins. Lots of other walks are available and a short car drive to visit High Force waterfall is recommended. We enjoyed lunch and a tour round the Bowes Museum, a beautiful building that would not look out of place in the French countryside. The silver swan animated automaton impressed Mark Twain when he saw it and we certainly agreed. The property has been fitted out to a high standard and we were comfortable with the arrangements.
Great place to stay with very friendly Hosts. This place is convenient for visiting the Lake District, and the East coast (HMS Trincomalee is a must). A very comfortable, well set up cottage. Walking distance to some excellent sites in Barnard Castle and well placed for the markets. Loved our holiday in this area and Wood Street Cottage just made things so much easier.
