Great location, great facilities, great stay!
We stayed at the end of October and loved every second. We wanted a nice, relaxing and comfortable stay...and we were not disappointed! The hosts, Angela and Jack were really nice and very helpful. We arrived to a welcome hamper which was very generous. The Arches has everything you need - They have thought of everything. We stayed in The Arches - The place is huge! It was very clean, warm and comfortable. The barn conversion has been done to a very high standard. We wanted a place where we, as a family, could chill, chat, cook and spend some quality time together and The Arches was perfect for this. All the rooms are massive. Especially the main bedroom. There is a decent speed WiFi at the property - Mobile phone signal is patchy but that did not bother us. We took our dog and we enjoyed lots of walks. The dog and kids loved watching the chickens and ducks outside the window. It's a working farm so there are lots of animals. Especially sheep. The view from The Arches looks towards the village of Ravensworth - you can even see the ruins of the Castle which was built in 1200! You have to drive by it when entering and leaving the farm - We thought this was very cool. There is a huge lake on the land too. Lots of ducks and wildlife. Great for walking around. We really enjoyed our stay - We were gutted to come home.

Stayed here for a weekend with couples and was fantastic. An amazing spacious converted barn. It was so big you could not hear other guests in different rooms. We arrived to a lovely gesture of a welcome hamper which went down well with us ladies. Barn was spotless clean and lovely and warm. the only sound you could hear when we checked in was ooo's and aaaa's. Nothing bad to say at all. 5 Minute walk down the farm brings you to local pub were everyone was so friendly and welcoming. We will definitely recommend this to family and friends and shall be returning next year. Thank you for an amazing weekend.

Exceeded expectations
The barn conversion is more spacious and better appointed than expected. Lots of homely touches made you feel right at home. Everything is as described or better. The en-suite master bedroom and open-plan kitchen/sitting/dining room are huge and light. Two huge sofas welcomed you in. All the technology worked as promised. The farm has an wonderful selection of animals (sheep with lambs, cows with calves, goats, multiple types of poultry including guinea fowl, a dovecote with doves, plus dogs and cats. You can even feed some of the menagerie - the farmer. will give you the right food. We loved being able to walk out into the farmyard and fields with our grandson and our dog. There are three rental properties here. A house and two barn conversions. The barn conversions look at each other, so you need to not mind this and to close curtains when deshabilee. The house is more private than the barn conversions other than the sitting room which overlooks the same courtyard. The two pubs are just as promised, one a short level stroll past the surprisingly impressive ruined castle and the other a steep pull up the hill through the fields. The area was beautiful with Richmond and Barnard Castle being the local towns complete with plenty of shops, cafes, restaurants and ruined castles overlooking the Swale and the Tees respectively. We enjoyed lots of lovely hill walks in Arkengarthdale, Swaledale and Wensleydale and spent half a day at the lovely Kiplin Hall.

Stunning, amazing - don't hesistate - it is really excellent!
It look good when we booked it but it was even better when we got there! The setting and the comfort of the house is excellent and really, really very spacious ( which is ideal when traveling with 2 teenagers and 1 child - not forgetting the excellent WIFI off course). Rural walks within 2 mins reach ( = Mum and dad happy), Richmond Town/shopping within 10 mins ( = Teenagers happy ), Feeding the lambs on the farm ( = Everybody!! happy) 7 days is just far too short.

Very relaxing and a great location. One of the best cottages we have stayed in, all the extras provided were greatly appreciated. The standard of fixtures and fittings were excellent and extremely clean.
