Golf, riding, tennis and fishing (on the River Tees) are available locally. Excellent choice of pubs/restaurants in Barnard Castle and surrounding villages. Historic Richmond 14 miles.

    Spacious beamed sitting/dining-room with open fire in inglenook and rugs on stone-flagged floor. Steps down to well-fitted kitchen. Utility room. Step up to twin-bedded room, bathroom/W.C. with over-bath shower. Spiral staircase to first floor: Large double bedroom with 5ft bed and en-suite shower room/W.C.
