A splendid Teesdale cottage, this unique property is a ground floor wing of a stone-built detached barn, only one minute from the village centre on the edge of the charming village of Romaldkirk. Carefully renovated and distinctly styled, the cottage, all on one level, has been well appointed throughout to provide good quality comfortable accommodation in a tranquil location, just the place for that romantic hideaway. An open-plan living room opens out onto a tranquil garden, while the kitchen provides all modern appliances and a comfortable dining area. Just beyond the cottage are a myriad of scenic walks and nature trails, whilst the superb pub with its award winning food are just a minutes stroll, as is the lovely village green.

About this location
The County Durham region
From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?
Romaldkirk has to be one of the most delightful villages in Teesdale. It has all the main ingredients for a typical "chocolate-box" village with its greens, old stone built cottages, a beautiful old church and two pubs, one an AA Pub of the Year for England winner in 2003. Romaldkirk is surrounded by the outstanding Dales countryside and this makes the village an excellent base for walking and for touring around the Northern and Yorkshire Dales. There are fantastic fell, flat and river walks and cycle rides all from the doorstep and if you want to journey further afield then the Northern Lakes and the cities of Durham and Newcastle are an easy drive. Just a 10 minute drive away is the historic market town of Barnard Castle with many cultural and historical attractions all under the protective watch of Bernard de Balliol's stunning 12th Century castle.
