We're delighted to welcome you to Swan Cottage, a cosy and charming holiday cottage getaway in the heart of  beautiful Barnard Castle.

"We recently stayed at Swan Cottage and couldn't imagine a better choice for a UK holiday. The cottage is charming and cosy, and really well equipped. We're keen walkers so wanted easy access to Teesdale, but still wanted to be close to shops and catering, so for us the location was perfect - we didn't move the car all week! Highly recommend"

"Staying at Swan Cottage felt like a home away from home. The cottage is cosy and inviting, with everything provided you could need for self-catering - although Barney is more than well provided for if you want to eat out! Fab location, close to the town centre but still in a peaceful and quiet setting.  We had a wonderful time and can't wait to come back" 
Phil & Sharon G - Chesterfield
"This was the perfect choice for our holiday getaway. The cottage is beautifully decorated and the location is unbeatable. We enjoyed exploring the town and its attractions, and coming back to the peaceful setting of the cottage. Would highly recommend Swan Cottage to anyone looking for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday."
