Situated in the popular market town of Barnard Castle, the properties at 10 Newgate are the ideal base from which to explore the local and surrounding areas. Perfect for business guests, families, friends, couples and single guests, there is an ample choice of accommodation to suit each guest and fulfil their requirements. Each property at 10 Newgate offers good quality, comfortable and practical accommodation. There is a choice of property depending on the guest’s requirements. All named after local attractions and historic buildings, there are many personal touches throughout, making Newgate a real home from home. Raby (ref 31097) and High Force (ref 31098) are both 2-bedroomed apartments that sleep 4 people. Each have 2 double bedrooms, as well as a comfortable living room and well-equipped kitchen with good quality appliances. Hamsterley (ref 31101) is a 1-bedroomed property with a double bedroom. Fully self contained, there is a small kitchen, living room and family bathroom with ample space for 2 guests. The Market Cross (ref 31099) is a quirky property which is an ’upside down’ building with the 2 double bedrooms on the ground floor and a large living room and kitchen on the first floor. Once again there are good quality bathroom facilities and many personal touches. The Museum (ref 31096) is perfect for guests who want to enjoy comfortable, practical accommodation. The space has been well used to provide a comfortable sleeping area that has been cleverly screened off from the living room and kitchen area by the careful placement of the furniture and wardrobe. This studio apartment is perfect for guests who would like a little more space and facilities than a standard hotel room in the area.
10 Newgate is located behind a local pub at the heart of Barnard Castle, and guests will be able to leave their car behind to take a leisurely stroll into the town centre, with many top class pubs, restaurants, inns and cafés that line the old fashioned high street. There is also a weekly farmers market that provides local produce, arts, crafts, food and drink, and several boutique and gift shops that are scattered throughout the town. At the end of Galgate is Scar Top and the ruins of the stone castle date back to 1125 and gives the town its name. The castle also overlooks the River Tees and offers magnificent views over the surrounding areas. A little further afield but still within only a few miles distance, guests will find the pretty picture-postcard village of Staindrop, which is set in a dedicated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is definitely worth the short trip out to visit. Perfect for walkers, cyclists and nature enthusiasts, Barnard Castle is set amongst some of the most magnificent countryside that the county has to offer. There are many public footpaths, established walks and cycle paths that lead through the town, alongside the River Tees and out into rolling countryside and beyond, towards places and attractions including Binchester Roman Fort and Raby Castle, as well as many National Trust houses and sites. The cathedral city of Durham is only a 30-minute drive away and is perfect for guests wanting to include a theatre break into their stay, a romantic boat ride along the River Wear, a meal out in one of the bistros and restaurants, boutique shopping or the opportunity to visit the famous cathedral and Durham Castle, which is steeped in history and tradition. Durham is a city that is thriving all year round and offers free on street entertainment on a regular basis including the annual book week, Lumiere Festival, jazz festival, art festival, miners gala and many more. For those wanting to travel a little further afield, guests will find all the majesty and beauty of both High Force and Low Force waterfalls or be able to explore the Durham Dales, Pennines and even the northern counties of Northumberland and Cumbria all within an easy 2-hour drive. Any of the properties can be booked together for larger groups. There is also a public car park to the rear of the propertie

    The property is comfortable & close to the town centre. The on-site staff were welcoming & friendly. My only negative comments are that the lounge is rather spartan, a few table lamps and pictures on the walls would make it more welcoming and the double-bedded room could do with a bedside table and lamp. There was no wi-fi, which one would expect be provided these days. Hence my low score of 6 for comfort.

    Lovely little apartment - everything you need for a short break and the kiddies loved the diwnstairs bedrooms. Kitchen very well equipped. Perfect location with a very short walk to shops, cafes, bars and takeaways with all you need. Would definitely go back.

    Overall very good. The property was fairly clean but could do with more of a thorough clean - a bit of dirt in the corners, little bits or rubbish in draws, a line of grime in the bathroom sink. That was my only complaint, otherwise it was a great place to stay.

    Absolutely lovely cottage, couldn't have asked for more. Location perfect as just 2 mins walk from the centre of town and yet lovely and quiet. The cottage was spotless too. Would definitely stay there again and might go with the 'girls' next time rather than the family as the pubs in Barnard Castle were fantastic too! Loads to do and see including the amazing Bowes Museum, the Castle and walks along the river.

    Loved location and apartment. Softer lighting in lounge would make for cosier atmosphere

    Great location, pay-to-park but cheap, decent facilities but basic. Needs more furniture and 'homely' touches in the living room. Rooms fairly small especially the double bedroom.
