Northern England region

Raygill is on the border of County Durham and North Yorkshire, in Teesdale near the historic town of Barnard Castle on the river Tees.

The beautiful rolling hills of the Yorkshire dales with sights such as High force waterfall on the river Tees set this up to be one of the most stunning locations in England.

Barnard Castle

Barnard Castle Near Richmond is a Norman Castle set on the banks of the River Tees, the town has built around the castle over the years and still keeps its original authentic look. Shopping in the town has really changed over the years going from a farming market town to what is more becoming a boutique experience.

One of the best kept secrets is the ever increasing places of high quality places to eat supported by fantastic local produce. Local produce is sold throughout the town and displayed at markets on selected weekends

Many attractions and activities can be found here to make a stay very memorable such as; cycling, canoeing, Walking, climbing, off-roading, sailing, shooting & fishing all set in stunning landscape abundant in natural flora and fauna.

"Well-equipped and clean."

We went as a group of 12 - and the house were certainly big enough for us all (which is somewhat hard to find in rental cottages!). Well-equipped kitchen, comfortable living room. Peter was a great help in many ways, and so were those living nearby on the farm.

Everything was very clean. Warm too (even in December!). And a lovely 20min walk into Barnard Castle. A thoroughly enjoyable stay overall.

Thank you for your feedback and it was lovely to have your group stay with us, we hope too see you again in 2014

Kindest regards,

"The children adored it!"

A great weekend in a spacious cottage on a working farm with horses gallore! We all had a brilliant time. The 9 children aged between 15 months and 4 years all loved it, seeing the pigs, horses, sheep… More

It is really lovely to hear your group had such a great time and look forward to seeing you again. I am currently working on several improvements including work on showers, which generally are fine but could do with some TLC in certain areas. I need to buy more bowls as there have been quite a few broken recently and it is on my list to do today. The major improvement I am currently doing is the large guest garden having a large screened fence and purpose built BBQ area, this will still retain the fantastic views of open countryside surrounded by woodland and the Bowes Museum (French Chateau), with added privacy and peace of mind for families with children,

"Happy overall"

There were 18 in our group age ranged from 4 months old to 70 years old. To start with the positives.. although Peter the owner was not on site the communication from start of finish was excellent. … More

Its lovely to hear your group enjoyed your stay overall & would recommend others to stay here. Raygill is a working farm with the main entrance to the front of the property away from the farm side for safety. A large 200m2 lawn area at the bottom of the court-yard is for guest use, the area is surrounded by a fence with wooden gates with latches which can be closed by guests to enclose the area. The 2 dogs Meg and Sage are not farm dogs but house pets and very friendly just saying hello. The cottage is 16th century with a lovely original feature of a carved stone staircase, shown on the photos of the website you booked through, all stairs can be dangerous with toddlers and where at home you might have safety gates for young children this would not be the case in most guest houses/hotels etc and therefore the safety issue would be supervision, not the stairs. I am not aware of any other safety issues reported? The accommodation is checked >weekly for safety issues with an up to date risk assessment modern heat/smoke detectors with zoned alarm system, serviced fire extinguishers and fire blanket, alarm tests are scheduled and unscheduled & electrical appliances have current PAT testing. The loft room beds which you say are too small and uncomfortable are >6'ft and I quite often get feed back from many guests that these beds are extremely comfortable and a great nights sleep. I do test the beds and have added cushioned mattress protectors for extra comfort. We have recently upgraded and laid new tarmac on the farm road, access to the accommodation is separate from the farm yard and free of stones. The check out time is 10am on day of departure which is pretty standard throughout the industry to allow sufficient time for me to clean for the next party arriving at 2pm. Cleaning by guests on departure only consists of removing all belongings and rubbish, strip bedding, wash dishes etc or use dishwasher, clean oven & a general sweep through, with a group of people this should only take about 30 minutes, leaving all the fine thorough cleaning throughout for myself. I am slightly confused with some feedback you have left? At first you have noted the excellent service and communication from the start, however your marked score for this was average. The quality of bedding/mattresses was marked below average but nearly every guest including myself have found these beds extremely comfortable with new bed spreads freshly laundered between each group. The mark for cleanliness of bathroom & overall condition was average when the accommodation is deep cleaned from top to bottom between each group.
Thank you for your feedback and we are always improving on things.

"Everything we needed"

Raygill was in the perfect location for our group, and the setting is beautiful. The accommodation was just right for a large group and despite it being freezing outside, it was very warm and cosy inside. The owner Peter was very friendly and took the time to explain where everything was and the best places to go locally. We had a great weekend. Thank you.

Thank you and we look forward to you staying with us again.
