This welcoming barn conversion near Bowes sleeps six people in three bedrooms.

Howlugill Barn is semi-detached barn conversion in the countryside a mile from Bowes in Teesdale. The cottage has two double bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs, with a ground floor twin with en-suite shower room. Also downstairs is the kitchen diner, while the sitting room is on the first floor to make the most of the countryside views.

Outside is off road parking for three cars, a front patio with furniture and shared use of the owners' gardens. Howlugill Barn has walks from the door, and is ideally placed for visiting Barnard Castle, Raby Castle and the rest of the northern Dales.


My parents booked to stay earlier in the year although they rearranged to September as their first Grandchild was due very close to their original stay dates - the owners accommodated their request to alter dates without any trouble whatsoever. I contacted Jackie the morning my parents were due to arrive asking her to put some bubbles into their cottage for an anniversary drink from the children - Jackie was ever so helpful and all to glad to help, the gift bundle she's put together for my parent's anniversary is wonderful! I shall certainly look to stay there in the coming years once my little boy is older. Many thanks again Jackie

Everything was perfect including the weather. We were made very welcome from the moment we got there and didn?t want to leave. The cottage was well equipped and the location was ideal. Plenty to see from caves, waterfalls, castles and Hadrian's wall not too far. We saw a tawny owl in the nearby woods which made my grandsons day and the night sky was amazing with no light pollution. Would highly recommend this area and especially Howlugill Barn. Thank you.

Peace, perfect peace!
Magical area.Stunning countryside studded with dry stone walling field boundaries.Beautiful hillside views.Sheep, lambs,cows,rabbits,red squirrel,grey squirrel,deer,pheasants,curlews, all spotted whilst out and about(and most of these from the windows of Howlugill barn).The property was all that I hoped it would be(spacious, well furnished,very well equipped,clean,peaceful and quiet.)The owners, Jackie and David made us very welcome.

We liked the position and the friendliness of the owners. It was very quiet with wonderful views, very good walking from the cottage and it is very central for exploring the region. There was good access from the main road. The cottage delivered in all respects.
