Delightful stay in Barnard Castle
Michael and Pauline were welcoming and thoughtful hosts, and their gifts of milk, home made flapjacks and wine was much appreciated. The cottage is comfortable and relaxing. The Hanby's were very approachable if anything needed to be clarified; eg where to dispose of rubbish. They were helpful in sharing their knowledge of the area and there is useful information in the cottage. We are only at the beginning of our exploration of the North of England and hope that we could stay again.
Quite simply, the ‘perfect’ place to stay. Extremely comfortable & superbly appointed. Lovely owners who were very helpful.
Thank you so much for the welcome and all the additional extras that make a stay so comfortable when travelling.
Comfortable, well furnished and spotlessly clean.
