Northern England region
Teesdale's principal town is Barnard Castle, a historical market town. It also includes the small town of Middleton-in-Teesdale and a number of villages, including Mickleton, Eggleston, Romaldkirk, and Cotherstone. Middleton-in-Teesdale was a lead-mining centre, and plentiful traces of this industry can be seen round the adjoining slopes and side-valleys. On the South side of Teesdale looms the Bronze Age burial site of Kirkcarrion.
Over ledges in the Whin sill fall the famous waterfalls of High Force and Low Force and the cataract of Cauldron Snout.
Teesdale gave its name to the former Teesdale district of County Durham, although the south side of Teesdale lies within the historic county boundaries of the North Riding of Yorkshire.
The River Tees flows through Teesdale before reaching and passing between Barnard Castle and Startforth, thereafter passing to the south of Darlington, reaching the North Sea south of Hartlepool after passing Stockton-on-Tees and Middlesbrough. Running roughly parallel to Teesdale to the north is Weardale.

"Brilliant location! A typical country cottage"
Loved our week in Romaldkirk, and loved Caroline Cottage. Great area for walking and not far from high force. Two pubs on the doorstep and lovely scenery around village. I side the cottage was really nice and we really enjoyed the log stove after our cold walks.
