About the location

STAINDROP

Barnard Castle 5 miles; Durham 20 miles.

From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?

Set in the York Dales, the pretty Teesdale village of Staindrop has always been closely associated with the fortunes of nearby Raby Castle. This impressive building is open to the public and is one of the finest in England. Extended and modified over the centuries, the castle is medieval in origin and boasts a walled garden and 200-acre deer park. The village of Staindrop itself has many interesting shops, pubs and cafes, all set around its long village green. The popular market town of Barnard Castle is only five miles away and, in addition to it's famous fort, is home to the Bowes Museum and a wide selection of shops and tea-rooms. The area also offers many exceptional walking and cycling routes through the beautiful countryside.
