West Cottage

Overview
Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Barnard Castle, Durham, England
We have just opened our new leisure facility, with a swimming pool, hot-tub, gym and games room. The pool and hot-tub are available to book for private use at no extra cost.

The holiday cottages are situated in Baldersdale (made famous as the former home of Hannah Hauxwell), two miles from the village of Cotherstone, which has two excellent pubs and a village shop/post office.

Holiday guests can enjoy nature walks around the estate, fishing on the estate and in nearby reservoirs, free-range eggs from the resident hens and seasonal food from the vegetable garden and orchard.

Very spacious, comfortable cottage with free use of laundry facilities in The Wash House, located near playground. Nice walks around the farm, although paths not clear at times and care needs to be taken near the river. Excellent 'Fox and Hound' pub in nearby Cotherstone...More

Coming From the South on the A1

If using M1, carry on when it joins the A1. Turn off at Scotch Corner onto the A66. Carry on for about 10 miles then turn right onto the B6277, signposted to Barnard Castle. Stay on this road past Barnard Castle, through Lartington to Cotherstone (4 miles from BC).

Coming From the M6

From the North, turn off at J40 onto the A66.

From the South, exit at J38 and follow signs to Brough (A685). About 4.5 miles after Kirkby Stephen, turn right onto the A66 East.

Where the A66 splits, bear left onto the A67. Immediately after the junction, there is a small turn-off to the left, signposted to Cotherstone. This is a very small, isolated moor road, which is great to drive, but should probably be avoided in bad weather. If you take it, turn left when you reach Co...
