Barnard Castle or Barney, as it’s known, is a little town with a lot to see and do. The superb Bowes Museum, the medieval Barnard Castle ruins, the river walks, the truly iconic Butter Market, the cobbled marketplace where you’ll find independent shops, the antique shops and Blagraves down The Bank, a farmer’s market on the first Saturday of the month and good places to eat and drink

Barney is very pleased to host the Funny Way To Be Comedy Club based at The Witham Community Arts Centre in the centre of the town – there may be a show or event you could book

Newgate House bed and breakfast is walking distance from all the attractions of Barnard Castle and ideally placed for visitors to the town


Barnard Castle is the gateway to glorious Teesdale, parts of which are in The North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, famous for its birdlife, its arctic alpine flowers and its sense of wildness and remoteness

Bowlees Visitor Centre is a great place to start your discovery of Teesdale, with access to the impressive waterfalls High and Low Force. High Force is the highest unbroken fall of water in England.   

Stargazers can take a short trip to the observatory at Grassholme Reservoir to make the most of the Dark Skies above Teesdale

Some of the most impressive sections of the Pennine Way National Trail are found in Teesdale but you don’t have to be a hard-core walker to enjoy yourself, there are numerous excellent circular walks giving you access to meadows, fells, reservoirs, and villages where you can find a cosy pub with a promising menu

Another of Teesdale’s gems is Eggleston Hall Gardens.

Come, stay with us at Newgate House and get to know Teesdale

I had one of the best breakfasts I’ve had in my life…

I had a fantastic couple of nights at Newgate House! Carole and her husband were very friendly and hospitable, and their B&B was immaculately presented throughout. I had the best breakfasts I’ve had in my life there. Will definitely be returning in the future.
