Where to stay in Barnard Castle

About Barnard Castle

Barnard Castle is a historic market town centred around the ruins of a medieval castle after the same name. Rich English history abounds within and around this town, along with picturesque British countryside, traditional pubs and tearooms, horse riding and cycling routes and antique stores.

Things to do

Begin your Barnard Castle holiday by immersing yourself in the region’s fascinating history at Bowes Museum, where you can admire artwork, historic relics, curios and antiques within a grand French-style building. You absolutely must tick off Barnard Castle, a Grade I-listed building with medieval ruins dating back to the 11th century. Tour the castle to learn about the sieges and different owners, before wandering across the nearby 16th-century Barnard Castle Bridge.

Are you a foodie at heart? Visit one of Barnard Castle’s charming tearooms or coffee shops, such as Clarendon’s or No. 15 Coffee House & Deli. If you’re looking for something a bit stronger, head across the street to the Golden Lion pub or the Turks Head, both of which boast a true English-pub ambience with timber bars, chatty locals and British ales on tap.

Don’t forget to explore the surrounding region, which reveals its own historic attractions, such as Egglestone Abbey. This abandoned Premonstratensian Abbey sits on the River Tees and dates back to the 12th century. Alternatively, venture north to Staindrop to see the 14th-century fortress and immaculate grounds at Raby Castle.

If you love golf, tee off at Barnard Castle Golf Club, which has a par-73 18-hole course with natural water hazards. You can also watch a game of rugby at Barnard Castle Rugby Club near the town centre.

Getting around

Barnard Castle is best reached by from Newcastle upon Tyne in about one hour. You can walk or catch public buses around the town centre but will need a vehicle to explore further.
