A Weekend In Barnard Castle

A weekend in Barnard Castle – A guide from The Times. 

For those of us who live in the area we have always known that Barnard Castle is a very special place, steeped in history, home to a French Chateau that houses some of the worlds most impressive art works, surrounded by breath taking scenery and lucky enough to have maintained a traditional high street of independent traders and of course, plenty of friendly folk.

Barnard Castle has come to the attention of the Times travel writer, Stephen McClarence who chose to visit recently for the “weekend in …” feature in the Saturday travel section. We were delighted to host Stephen when he visited and very happy to fill him in on the best places to visit that are not in the guide books and of course tell him all about our own history and connections to Charles Dickens.

If you are thinking of visiting Barnard Castle, take a few minutes to read the feature, it really will give you some inspiration and for us locals, well reading it just makes us feel very proud.

Our Delighted Clientele

Staff were lovely, hotel was lovely, food was brilliant and the beds were unbelievably comfy. Wouldn’t have got up other than the breakfast being perfect every morning. Will definitely be staying again.

Nice old building that is easily accessible. Well appointed with properly trained staff. Been eating there for many years and always had a good experience. Interesting how some restaurants can produce a Sunday Lunch and some cannot. This is one of the can does. Splendid choice of starters and mains to match.
Give it a try. You won’t regret it.

The garage spa is cute and compact and the staff were very welcoming and friendly. The treatments my group indulged in were gorgeous and we enjoyed the hot tubs, steam and salt rooms. Thoroughly relaxing and topped off with a yummy afternoon tea over at the hotel to end the day.
