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?

Closely associated with the fortunes of nearby Raby Castle, the village of Staindrop is a pretty holiday spot for anyone looking to spend time in Teesdale. Open to the public, the castle itself is one of the most spectacular in England. Extended and adapted over the years, the construction was originally medieval, boasting a walled garden and a 200-acre deer park. The village of Staindrop offers visitors a range of interesting shops, pubs and cafes, all of which are set round its long village green. For more diverse shopping opportunities, the popular market town of Barnard Castle is only five miles away, and provides a selection of shops and tea-rooms, in addition to it's namesake – the famous castle. The Teesdale countryside is also a draw, offering a huge number of routes for walkers and cyclists looking to explore the region.
