“Wonderful weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2008

Just spent a couple of nights at Number 34. Had a great time, the hosts were so attentive and the accomodation was superb.

We stayed Friday and Saturday night in the deluxe double room, loads of space, large four poster bed, leather sofa, separate bathroom with roll top bath and large walk in shower. The room came with nice touches (sherry, plenty of tea and coffee and luxury toiletries).

We ate breakfast as part of the package which was the best i have had in any hotel, started with fresh fruit, followed by a plentiful suppy of cereals, full cooked breakfast and even chocolate brownies to finish.

The hosts were really friendly,offered coffee immediately on our arrival and offered plenty of guidance on the locality. At the same time they gave us plenty o space to do our own thing.....Otto the dog was a great host too!

Well werth a visit!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2008

We booked directly and were offered the Standard Double room.
The house is located pretty centrally in Barnard Castle. The room was fine - some lovely luxurious touches - fabrics, mini decanter of sherry for a cheeky sharpener before dinner, real coffee for a cafetiere. The house has a great selection of books - old and new in the large front room - with comfy sofas to relax in.

Breakfast was excellent - fresh fruit and a full English - cooked just before it hits the table.

We peeked our noses into the larger rooms - try for one of those if you can - they look really good.

Recommended!
