Peter communicated very quickly and clearly throughout the booking process and was happy to show us around each room when we arrived- which was very helpful!
The accommodation was perfect for our mixed group of 12 with large outdoor spaces and plenty of socialising room inside (big kitchen and living space)! We are a group who enjoy sport and Peter designated us a field to which we could crack on with football/rugby/rounders throughout the day!
Not far at all from Barnard castle, so easy to pop in for a pub lunch!
Myself and 15 friends stayed at Raygill farm for a few nights and had a wonderful time.
We were lucky enough to have great weather on the first night and sat outside in the garden area with the horses and dogs all around. It is in a great location with a lovely walk to town through the woods. Barnard castle is a beautiful town, and the Three Horseshoes Hotel (a pub recommended by Peter) accommodated for all of us and was fantastic food.
The living room was spacious with a lot of seating for all. The kitchen was slightly basic but had all of the amenities necessary for cooking with plenty of fridge and freezer space.
Overall, a lovely stay and would recommend for a country retreat.
We had a lovely stay in this cottage, 5 families wanting a catch up/ weekend break. Kids loved the surrounding farm land & open fields. Cottage had all the facilities needed, owner is also trying to update some facilities. Lovely walks in surrounding area. Very enjoyable weekend, looking to book another weekend stay next year.
Turned up to find that the actual accommodation is not the one shown in the picture. It's actually behind the large tree on the left!!! So you find your way through a slimy stable yard to a little wall that has to climbed over to the back door. The door which is rotten on the bottom and has a hole in it.
The place itself is warm with clean bedding, new toilets, wash basins and shower in ensuite but it's work in progress and not finished!! Downstairs communal showers very1950,s. most of the tired crockery in the kitchen needs replacing..IKEA have some bargains. Sofas in living room are not good but new tele and snooker table a big hit.
There is no hanging space in the long bedroom just small bedside tables and only a coat stand in living for all outdoor clothing our many muddy shoes we put on newspaper at the door in living room, no where else to go!
We paid £750 for 3 nights over Easter and asked the owner that in view of the fact it wasn't as described could we have some refund and at no point did I say I would give a bad review if he didnt. I notice he said that about someone else that complained. No refund!!
