This stone-built cottage situated close to the Teesdale village of Gainford sleeps two people.

Barforth Hall Parlour is a stone-built cottage situated in a rural location, one mile from the village of Gainford and within reach of Barnard Castle. This ground floor cottage sleeps two people and has studio accommodation with a king-size double bed and a sitting area, a shower room and a kitchen. The cottage also has off road parking and a patio area. With many walking and cycling routes in the area, as well as plenty of attractions to enjoy, Barforth Hall Parlour makes an excellent base for a romantic retreat.


A great place to get away from it all, very friendly owners, very friendly farm dog and cat, Alpacas just over the way, great view of field and horses at the rear, many local attractions, 12th century ruins of St Lawrence's Chapel in nearby field. If you are looking for a peaceful countryside break this is the place for you. I would stay there again.
