Very clean, comfortable accommodation, everything you need for home comforts. Close to Barnard Castle Town centre, central for all activities, lovely town and brilliant museum, Bowes Museum. Diane the owner of the Bothy left a lovely welcome basket, very much appreciated and lots of information for things to do and see.
Thanks for the lovely review. Really glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you both again. Very best wishes, Diane
Lottie's first nights away
A lovely cottage, well appointed and very clean with a well fitted out kitchen.
A lovely welcome pack upon arrival.
The bed was harder than we're accustomed too and after a days walking the setee and chairs were not the most comfortable. Overall a nice place to stay. Thankyou Diane.
Thanks for the lovely review, it was great to meet you both and the beautiful Lotte! I agree the mattress is on the firm side so with that in mind have purchased a good quality mattress topper. You are the first guests that have mentioned the sofa not being the most comfortable, sorry about that, however we are upgrading the sofa for the new season anyway, and comfort will be our main priority. Very best Wishes, Diane
This is a very nice little cottage to stay. Although called the Bothy, it's probably a little bigger than you'd expect from a Bothy with cosy but comfortable sized rooms and a good standard of furniture and easy to relax. It's nicely located within easy reach of Barnard Castle, and Raby Castle just up the road, plus many other things to do in the area. It has a comfy living room and well equipped kitchen, the welcome pack was very good and Diane was quick to reply to any messages. We did have an issue with the oven having developed a fault but help was offered and I'm sure that will be fixed by the next visit. It is a peaceful place, I would probably agree with a past review that the double bed mattress was a bit uncomfortable but that would be my only slight criticism, and I'm told the twin ones were very nice. Everything else was very comfy, clean and we enjoyed our stay.
Thanks very much for the lovely review , so glad you and your family enjoyed their stay. The oven, as you suspected, needed a new thermostat which has been fixed, so thanks for the feedback on that. I have taken on board your comments about the mattress and purchased a good quality mattress topper, which should make it less firm and a bit cosier in the colder months. Very Best Wishes, Diane
Prompt, accurate instructions from owner.
Lovely welcome pack much appreciated.
Would definitely stay here again with our dog.
Thanks for the good review. Lovely to meet you both and your gorgeous puppy. Hope to see you again!
The Beautiful Bothy
My friend and I spent 2 nights here 9-11/9/2019 with our two dogs. The beautiful Bothy was a short drive to Barnard Castle for all the facilities but far enough out to enjoy the peace and quiet of the surrounding area. Diane was an excellent host leaving us the most beautiful welcome basket and always willing to give advice on local walks. We were given access to the beautiful big garden which was totally secure and the dogs thoroughly enjoyed running around with Dianes dog Lottie. Overall an excellent stay and would recommend the Bothy whole heartedly. We will definitely be returning. Thank you again for your kindness Diane
Thanks for the amazing review. It was lovely to meet you both and of course the adorable Roxy and Husky - I think Lottie is still missing them! Best wishes, Diane
A nice two bedroom cottage
Well designed layout with everything you could need even treats for the dog. Hosts were 1st class. Only criticism would be that we both thought that the mattress was too firm .
