About the neighborhood
Avelin cottage is just 1.5 miles from Branard Castle, we are in open countryside, wonderful views, the cottage is right next to our home called Kirkstone, which is a converted Chapel, we are not on a main road, and so not a lot of trafic, we do have a bus service every 2 hours through the day down to Barnard Castle, the nearest Pup is 1 mile away takes 20 mins to walk, but that is a main road and very busy.
Getting around
You need a car, we have a bus route into Barnard Castle every 2 hours but only through the day
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Durham Tees Valley: 6.8 mi

From the A1 M come off at Scotch Corner and on to the A66 travel about 6 miles.
Come off the A66 at Greta Bridge you have to cross the duel carriageway , about 4 miles into Barnard Castle, passing the Bowes Museum on the right.
You will come to a large round stone structure we call the Butter Market, use this as a roundabout, turn right straight through the town centre, carry on through the town until you get to the road to Middleton in Teesdale , turn left carry on past Glaxo Smith Cline , straight on for about 1 mile then turn right at the sign for Kinninvie we are 200 yes along the road on the left
