The village of Bowes is situated in unspoilt countryside and has a long history dating back to the Romans. Its most famous landmark is Bowes Castle. Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, was patron of Bowes Museum for more than 40 years, until her death in 2002. Her own family, the Bowes-Lyons, had strong historical links with the area. Bowes also has a significant connection with Charles Dickens as the village is believed to have been the inspiration for Nicholas Nickleby.

A few minutes away is the lovely market town of Barnard Castle, with medieval ruins towering over the river. Nearby are the Pennine and Teesdale Ways, beautiful Swaledale, the Yorkshire Dales, the River Tees and the magnificent waterfalls at High Force. The east coast of Yorkshire, the North York moors and the Cumbrian Lakes are within easy reach.

Location description from owner

The England region

Northern Dales

Teesdale, in the northern Dales, is a calm and tranquil backdrop of valleys and hills, moorland vistas, waterfalls and winding rivers, dotted with charming villages and quaint market towns. It is part of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is an idyllic setting for a holiday. The Pennine Way passes through the Northern Dales and alongside Bowes.

This breath-taking countryside is bordered to the south by the delightful Yorkshire Dales, to the west by the Lake District and to the east by the dramatic east coastline and the historic Durham area. Further north is the Kielder Forest Park and the Northumberland National Park.

Attractions in the Northern Dales include spectacular waterfalls, awe-inspiring castles, beautiful gardens, picturesque market towns and some of the finest walking country in the region.
