The historic towns of Richmond and Barnard Castle are only a short drive away and the cities of York and Durham can be reached in just over an hour. There are an abundance of great places to eat out in the area and the nearest pub serving good food is one mile away. Anyone using public transport can be collected from Darlington train station or bus depot free of charge and bus services run to Richmond and Barnard Castle run every day except Sundays from the end of the farm drive.More
