Cottage Review:  

Such a lovely cottage, with big airy rooms, beautifully decorated, with large comfortable beds. Located just off the high street of one of the prettiest villages in the area.

A warm welcome from the hosts, with some very welcome baked treats, milk, and eggs.

Dog friendly with the yard close to the dog walks.

Lots of places to visit, very pretty villages, and castles, and nearest town Barnard Castle is lovely, recommend a visit to Beamish Museum and nearby Raby Castle

Our must have things when we book a cottage are that it has to be dog friendly, have good wifi, a log burner, put and shop within walking distance and stunning surroundings.

The Back House does not disappoint on any of these points. The owner, Judith, was so welcoming and friendly and it's obvious that a lot of thought and details has gone into the decor of this beautiful home.

On our arrival Judith had left us a lovely homemade cake and scones, fresh free range eggs from their own chickens, milk and prosecco - we were spoilt!

There was even a dog bed and bowls for the pooches.

The cottage was spotless which is so reassuring in the current Covid climate.

There is a secure area outside the back door where you can let your dogs out, it is a paved area with no grass which our dogs aren't used to but they soon got the hang of it and it wasn't an issue at all.

Staindrop and the surrounding area are stunning, there's so much to see and do and plenty of off lead walks for the dogs.

There are a few shops within a short walk of the cottage - Spar shop, newsagents, butchers, and also a pub which unfortunately we couldn't make full use of as the second lockdown came into place whilst we were there.

There's so much we haven't had chance to explore yet in this beautiful part of the country and we will certainly make a return visit to the Back House to continue our adventure.

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!!

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.

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.

We have stayed in many holiday homes, but this is by far the best! The accommodation is immaculate, the kitchen is equipped with everything you could possibly need, The three bedrooms are furnished beautifully as indeed is the whole house. The owners Richard and Judith are really lovely people so kind and friendly, the homemade cake is so good you just have to try it! Fresh free range eggs, milk and country butter awaits their visitors. This accommodation is not to be missed!!! They have some Suffolk sheep, and we were lucky to help with some lambing, which

Just returned from a lovely weekend at the Back House & cannot wait to plan our next visit.

We travelled as 4 adults and a dog, the house has plenty of space, it?s beautifully decorated and has all the amenities we needed & more...we loved the theme of each room, the dog bed & towel was a lovely touch too.

The village is very pretty with a pub (dog friendly) in walking distance. Raby Castle & tea rooms are also only a short stroll away.

Judith & Richard we?re wonderful hosts!

We will be back!
