This stone built cottage is located in the village of Gainford near Barnard Castle and sleeps two people.

The Old Dairy is a stone built cottage in the village of Gainford in Teesdale near to Barnard Castle. The cottage sleeps two people and has a four poster double bedroom with an ensuite, a family bathroom, a fitted kitchen with a dining area and a sitting room. Outside the cottage is off road parking for one car and an enclosed patio with outdoor furniture. Set in beautiful countryside and with so much to see and do in the area, The Old Dairy is a superb cottage for a romantic retreat.


The whole holiday experience from arriving at the property to departing was fantastic. The four poster bed was large and comfy and the living area was cosy, all in all it could not have been better. The dogs were well catered for as well, with pleasant walks close by and even a bit of swimming. We would all go back again, thank you.

The Old Dairy is a small cottage that suits 2 people down to the ground. The cottage had everything we needed to use in the kitchen to cook an evening meal. Location is perfect for Durham and the Yorkshire Dales which we enjoyed visiting. The local people were friendly.
Ms Copson

The cottage was very cosy and tastefully restored with a wonderful, cosy lounge and well kitted out kitchen. The bedroom was a very good size and the bed was very comfy. I especially loved the enclosed patio area ideal to let the dogs out first thing in the morning. I would imagine in the Summer months it is lovely to sit out with a glass of vino. The Old Dairy is situated next door to a very nice local pub and a great butcher. The village itself is beautiful with a massive village green and minutes walk to the riverside walks. I will be recommending to everyone and hope to come back soon.

The Old Dairy was just what we needed after a stressful week. It had everything and more, the owner had thought of just everything! The cottage was lovely, warm and comfortable and we just loved the roll top bath and candles. The king size bed was so comfortable. The locals were friendly, kind and helpful, and we will be coming back soon. The best holiday cottage we have had so far, we cannot wait to return! Thank You.
