Wow - what an amazing place! We absolutely loved our week staying at the Backhouse. With the recent covid restrictions we were a little apprehensive about going on holiday but with all the practices owner Judith has put in place in regards to her guests safety, we knew all was going to be OK. The place itself is beautifully decorated, comfortable and immaculate with everything you need for your stay - including some extra special treats! The location is fabulous too with walks from your doorstep or only a short drive away, High Force, Barnard Castle and Teesdale are all within a short driving distance.....a beautiful part of the country. We're already planning our next stay here!!

Perfect in every way, hard to leave behind
Stayed for the second new year running and loved it just as much. Judith & Richard have maintained the highest standards and are the perfect hosts. The cottage is absolutely immaculate with everything you could possibly need at your disposal, in fact we think there's even more crockery, cutlery and utensils available since last year which shows constant monitoring and improvement. On arrival we were met by Judith's lovely welcome pack including delicious home baking, the mince pies and chocolate roulade were especially delicious, we could move in permanently haha. It was really ovely being able to see the new born lambs again, both Judith & Richard are so accommodating and you would definitely be hard pushed to find a better cottage with such lovely caring owners, we will definitely be booking to return again.

My sister & I had a wonderful week here.You're made to feel very welcome,the cottage is spacious with themed rooms.The village is lovely with walks from the door and is a great location for exploring Raby Castle,Hamsterly Forest,High force Waterful and Beamish.The welcome pack is amazing, probably the best we've ever had.We would'nt hesitate in recommending this cottage.

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.
