In detail...

All homes have BT Openreach Fibre.
The nearby historic market town of Barnard Castle takes its name from the castle which it grew around and dates back to the 12th century. The remains of the castle, now a Grade 1 listed building, overlook the River Tees which today is a popular destination for canoeist and anglers.

In the centre of the town stands an octagonal building, the Market Cross known locally as, the ‘Butter Market’, built by Thomas Breaks and given to the town in 1747. Legend has it that the two bullet holes in the weather vane are the result of a shooting competition between a volunteer soldier and a local gamekeeper in 1804!

Tourism is important to the local economy with the town incorporating a number of antique shops and an antiques centre which attracts buyers from all over the world.

Day to day provisions can be purchased from the local Morrisons supermarket or from the many independent traders in the town. There's also a monthly Farmers' Market held on 'The Cobbles' in the Market place. On top of that, the town boasts a number of excellent restaurants, tea shops, cafes and pubs - all which serve good quality, home-made food!

On the outskirts of Barnard Castle is The Bowes Museum - an impressive and charming French-style chateau built in the late 19th century by John Bowes. The building is also surrounded by beautiful green gardens and a vast amount of parkland! The museum houses a collection of European fine and decorative arts and is regarded as one of the most significant museums outside London.
