Pet friendly accommodation Pet Friendly


Just wanted to say a big thank you for letting us stay in your stunning cottage. The cake and scones and the rest of the welcome pack was a lovely surprise, the village was lovely and the pub and locals were so friendly. Barnard Castle is a lovely place and we loved highforce waterfall. We would highly recommend anybody looking for a cottage to stay there. After staying for a week it was so hard to leave as we loved every minute and once again a big thank you to Judith and Richard.

Wanted to say a big thank you for our weeks holiday, the cake and scones were most welcome and very much enjoyed, the cottage is one of the nicest we have stayed in could not fault anything. Will recommend and definitely return

Excellent Stay.
We have stayed in many holiday homes, but this is by far the best! The accommodation is immaculate, the kitchen is equipped with everything you could possibly need, The three bedrooms are furnished beautifully as indeed is the whole house. The owners Richard and Judith are really lovely people so kind and friendly, the homemade cake is so good you just have to try it! Fresh free range eggs, milk and country butter awaits their visitors. This accommodation is not to be missed!!! They have some Suffolk sheep, and we were lucky to help with some lambing, which was a long life dream, so dreams do come true when you stay here! Thank you so much Richard & Judith for a truly amazing stay.

Wonderful stay
Just returned from a lovely weekend at the Back House & cannot wait to plan our next visit. We travelled as 4 adults and a dog, the house has plenty of space, it's beautifully decorated and has all the amenities we needed & more...we loved the theme of each room, the dog bed & towel was a lovely touch too. The village is very pretty with a pub (dog friendly) in walking distance. Raby Castle & tea rooms are also only a short stroll away. Judith & Richard we're wonderful hosts! We will be back!

Perfect in every way, hard to leave behind
Just returned home after staying here for new year, On arrival we were met by the lovely Judith who showed us around and explained everything, Judith really made us feel welcome and the food ?welcome pack? was an absolutely lovely gesture, the home made scones were scrumptious and the prosecco nicely washed them down . The cottage is perfect in every way, it just feels so homely, everything you could possibly want is provided and it is all of excellent high quality. The bedrooms are all lovely and the actual beds are unbelievably comfortable, we can honestly say we?ve had the best nights sleep we?ve ever had, even the dog loved the provided dog bed. Judith & Richard farm sheep and during our stay they were lambing, they invited us to see the new born lambs which was a lovely gesture & experience. The location is absolutely perfect whether you just want to sit and chill out or if you want to get out and do some walking & exploring. We've stayed in numerous cottages over the years and have to say this is definitely the best one yet, as per the above title it's perfect in every way and so hard to leave behind, we?ve just rebooked for next (this) new year, can?t wait for it to roll round.
