“Relaxing Break”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Just stayed a couple of nights at the cottage with my extended family.
The location is beautiful and the cottage had everything we needed for a relaxing break.
Peter the owner was very helpful and constantly checked we were ok.
Looking to stay there again next summer

Hi Maria
It was a pleasure having your group stay with us & great to hear you would recommend to friends as a place to stay. It is planned for the overflow carpark to be moved with better access, the winter weather can make much of the countryside quite muddy, but has since dried up. We are always looking at ways to improve Raygill and the overall experience of our guests, so thankyou for you feedback and we look forward to having you back.

Kind regards,

Peter

“The children adored it!”
Reviewed 24 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

A great weekend in a spacious cottage on a working farm with horses gallore! We all had a brilliant time. The 9 children aged between 15 months and 4 years all loved it, seeing the pigs, horses, sheep and experiencing farm life. We all managed the beautiful walk to Barnard Castle through the woodland and there was only one short steep section where getting the 2 prams down was tricky and it was lovely to be able to walk there from the property. The cottage is simple but very functional and living room and kitchen diner are lovely and spacious. We would definately recommend this cottage to other families and friends. The beds were comfy and the property was clean. The shower room could do with a re-furb if the owner is thinking of making improvements and small things such as more bowls for large groups (all eating copius amounts of cereal in the morning) and an electirc kettle or too would have been great! The children loved the freedom and being able to close the gate and let them run around and play was great. We all throughly enjoyed our stay - thank you very much.

Hi
It is really lovely to hear your group had such a great time and look forward to seeing you again. I am currently working on several improvements including work on showers, which generally are fine but could do with some TLC in certain areas. I need to buy more bowls as there have been quite a few broken recently and it is on my list to do today. The major improvement I am currently doing is the large guest garden having a large screened fence and purpose built BBQ area, this will still retain the fantastic views of open countryside surrounded by woodland and the Bowes Museum (French Chateau), with added privacy and peace of mind for families with children, www.facebook.com/pages/Raygill/197144803725001

Thanks,
Peter.
