Riverdale Cottage

Riverdale Cottage

Tucked away down a leafy lane in Barnard Castle by the upper reaches of the River Tees, ‘Riverdale Cottage’ is a Grade II listed building which was once an outbuilding of the local Gamekeepers cottage. This Victorian building was originally built around 1860. Then, in 1996, the property was lovingly renovated to provide a cosy one bedroomed detached cottage for holiday makers to enjoy Barnard Castle & the Teesdale area.

Refurbished to a very high standard, this 4 star self-catering cottage has a sunny southwest facing lounge with French doors leading onto the garden, perfect for watching the sun go down. There’s also a fully fitted kitchen/diner, double bedroom with fitted furniture, new fully tiled bathroom with shower over bath, separate WC, full central heating & double glazing. Your own off-street car parking is a real bonus, when being so close to all the activity means parking in the town is at a premium & hard to come by on market day Wednesdays & busier holiday weekends.

Only a two-minute walk away is the town’s bustling Market Place, alive with the comings & goings of the local Dales folk. Although near the centre of activity, this cosy cottage is unique in being a haven of peace & quiet, only yards away from the banks of the River Tees & the medieval Castle walls. The property has been decorated & furnished to a high standard with every amenity you could wish for to enjoy your cosy holiday in Teesdale.

The secluded garden is a real suntrap, an ideal place to sit out & watch the sun go down. If you are quiet, squirrels, rabbits & the wild doves may even come to join you. Walk out to Barnard Castle & you’ll find the centre of Dales life – a fantastic range of pubs, restaurants, museums, galleries & specialist shops are within a couple of minutes’ walk. One minute in the other direction & you are in Flatts Woods by the banks of the River Tees – great for walkers & ramblers with many trails & routes to enjoy, if you are lucky you may even see some of the wild deer.
