From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


Delve into the medieval history of Raby Castle, walk or cycle the Teesdale Way or wonder at the splendour of High Force waterfall.

Set amidst the grounds of Thorpe Hall Estate, this is one of three charming properties (Refs IWF, MPR and MVP) that offer the perfect holiday retreat. Chapel Cottage, which adjoins the main hall, enjoys wonderful views of the gardens and parkland, whilst Corner Cottage and Greystones sit close by as a pair. With beautiful sunsets, the River Tees flowing close by and the Teesdale Way, this is a truly magical setting. Guests are welcome to view the lovely gardens designed by Chelsea gold medallist 2012, Arne Maynard, at the award-winning Thorpe Hall by arrangement with the owner. A local pub and farm shop providing good home-made food is ½ mile. Just 10 minutes by car, the market town of Barnard Castle offers tea rooms, shops, galleries, markets and the Bowes Museum. Raby Castle and High Force Waterfall are some of the many local attractions. Durham, York, Harrogate and the Gateshead Metro Centre are approximately one hour’s drive. Shop 1/4 mile.

    Whilst many aspects of the property are fine the bathroom is tiny and of poor quality: a tiny cheap plastic shower enclosure , WC and washand basin in a space so cramped that people of a large build would have trouble getting into! This is not mentioned in the description of the property and I think this is misleading for potential occupants, so please correct this omission. The "open fire" has no proper hearth, it is merely a log basket sat under an open flue and it smokes badly stinking out the living room and I know how to set, light and build a fire as I have x2 at home. That said the logs are very good. A small wood burner or a properly built hearth would resolve the issue. As other reviewers have mentioned the kitchen is poorly (and cheap Ikea) equipped for cooking. The utility room is huge, so why a ground floor wet room was not added instead or in addition to the useless mini-bathroom upstairs is beyond me. The mattress on the double bed needs to be replaced. Those on the beds in the twin room are OK.
