Henberry Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
This property is a charming first floor Romaldkirk cottage located in the wing of a detached, stone-built barn conversion on the edge of the village and just six miles from Barnard Castle. The cottage is a well-equipped, cosy intimate haven. The property has been lovingly restored and carefully styled to provide a comfortable homely atmosphere. The accommodation is open plan and includes a sitting, dining and a kitchen area with plenty of appliances. The charming bedroom has its own en-suite facilities. The cottage has fabulous views to the countryside beyond and outside there is a well-maintained, shared garden. With the award winning pub just minutes away and lots of walks and nature trails on the doorstep, this property offers excellent all year round holiday accommodation.

A picturesque little village in beautiful Teesdale, Romaldkirk has village greens, a beautiful church, old stone cottages full of character and two pubs; one an award winner of AA Pub of the Year for England in 2003. Surrounding the village are the stunning Dales with breathtaking countryside, making this area an ideal base for walking and touring the Yorkshire landscape. The varied terrain offers fell, flat and river walks and many cycle rides from the proximity of the village. The cities of Durham and Newcastle are an easy drive away. Closer to hand and just 10 minutes in the car is the historic market town of Barnard Castle, the 12th Century castle being one of the many attractions this ancient town has to offer.

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?

Henberry is a delightful first floor cottage apartment, well fitted out with all the creature comforts. It has superb views and a lovely garden and is situated in the picturesque village of Romaldkirk. The owners were very friendly and helpful and we were so impressed we have booked again for next year.

Perfect little cottage in idyllic surroundings. Clean, comfortable and very well furnished and equipped. It was cosy but with oodles of character and I very much regretted having to leave the delightful cottage and the village after a perfect week.
Mr Barron

A lovely cottage in a very quiet and peaceful location close to neighbouring towns and villages. We would highly recommend staying in this delightful cottage.
Mrs Gale

We loved the aspect of the cottage being in a village, but with walks from the door and two pubs/hotel which were a minute away. The owners were unobtrusive. We have already recommended it to my sister who is keen to visit the area.

Delightful village in beautiful rugged countryside with weather to match - fabulous! The property is a lovely, intimate, stone built apartment perfect for couples who are o.k. with steps, which we are. We shall, given the opportunity, go there again, and recommend it highly, particularly given the fine couple who own it and live next door.

Fantastic owners, friendly and helpful and couldn't do enough for you. Not only would we recommend the place, we will be back.

A beautiful cottage in a beautiful part of the country. The view from the cottage was stunning, so relaxing to sit in the lovely garden and soak it up.
Dr Miller
August 2013
The cottage was very well appointed, and nicely furnished. A great deal of thought had obviously gone into kitting it out, and ensuring that all likely requirements were accommodated. Romaldkirk is extremely pretty and has a great village pub which does delicious food! There were walks straight from the doorstep of the cottage.

The barn conversion is located in very quiet village with a choice of two pubs. The owners very helpful advising where to eat and shop in nearby villages. Excellent location for walking and cycling. Visited Beamish Museum, Barnard Castle, Appleby and High Force during our weeks stay. Pet friendly accommodation and doggy treats. The majority of pubs in the area welcome dogs.

The cottage was in a beautiful location, within easy reach of walks and areas of outstanding beauty. Our hosts were very welcoming, gave us lots of information on the area. Will be going back again next year.

The view from the kitchen window was beautiful. The cottage was like a cosy nest, up high. The kitchen was stocked with everything necessary, plus lots of extra useful things. I could tell that a lot of thought had gone into providing everything to make us comfortable. I liked the village, very peaceful and the stars were wonderful on the clear nights.

We received a lovely warm welcome from the owner and the cottage is in a beautiful setting, literally within a couple of minutes of some good walks. The cottage was charming and well supplied with plenty of crockery and cutlery. All in all a beautiful location for a break.

Beautiful, quiet setting, the dogs loved it. Great walks fro the door - no need to use the car. Owners very helpful, really enjoyed the fresh, free range eggs left for us.

The peace and quiet with only a few animal noises. The cottage was clean and very comfortable and the owners very helpful and friendly. They had even left us some milk and some of their own eggs. The siting was excellent with open views over the countryside.
Mr Holgate
July 2010
A superb cottage equipped with all that you desire, truly a home from home. It is a special place owned by a special couple. We and the dogs did not want to leave!
April 2014
Henberry is the upstairs level of a small barn conversion. It is an ideal retreat for two and is priced correctly for this size of accommodation. If you want more room, be prepared to pay accordingly. Access is up an old stone staircase with entry directly into the living room/kitchen area. The bedroom is compact with a normal sized en-suite beyond.I found the bed to be particularly comfortable. Every room is tastefully decorated and fitted out. The owners are very friendly and helpful - they live in the main house next door and were there if we needed them but left us happily to ourselves most of the time. The village has a popular, though quite expensive, pub / restaurant. There are other places within easy reach up and down the valley. Romaldkirk itself is delightful - pretty village greens and church. The location is great for walking - the Tees Valley Way passes right by the cottage. We hardly used the car all week, preferring to walk straight out of the door into the lovely surrounding countryside.
Mrs Proud

August 2012
Stayed here for a midweek break mid July. A very well equipped cottage, nice quiet surroundings in a lovely village. Owner lives next door although was away when we stayed so had some friends looking after guests, the hosts were lovely! The owner has an amazing garden with a gorgeous dog and a few cats scattered around! Cottage has all you could need and added extra's too. Lots of lovely walks to do nearby along the tessdale way, an old railway line now converted for walkers, very safe for dogs too. The owner supplies an excellent guide on things to do and places to stay. We look forward to visiting again
July 2012
Excellent property. Just big enough fot 2 people. Great locoation no shops in the village but only a few miles from Castle Barnard. Had a good break although it was cold for april and snow was about most of the week. We would go again.
September 2010
We took our dog with us for the first time and the cottage was brilliant as a base for lovely walks.
December 2009
The upstairs flat was well fitted and the decor was cosy and "country comfortable". The views were lovely and peaceful. We brought our 1 year old son with us, and it was perhaps a bit too cramped with the required cot and high chair... but the weather was nice, so we indulged in the bbq as much as possible. Nice walks in the area, and the quality of the food in the local pub was second to none.
