As soon as we arrived Brian ushered us into the sitting room and offered tea, coffee or sherry - which after our long journey was a lovely welcome. This is definitely one of, if not the, best Guest House/B & B we have stayed in. Everything was just right, the huge comfy bed, the bright modern ensuite, the lovely big...

Lovely rooms, excellent breakfast, cordial host and a magnificent breakfast of locally sourced produce. We would certainly choose to stay here again. Close to the Bowes Museum which is definitely worth a visit.

Truly excellent service. I am always disapponted if they are booked full and I have to stay elsewhere. Breakfasts are fabulous (actually cannot recall better) and rooms are cosy and always spotlessly clean.

Made welcome with tea/coffee and biscuits and chat from Brian (a bit early for the complimentary sherry, but saved it till later!). Five minutes walk from the Castle and town centre; on the busy main road into town, but street parking right outside and our room at the rear was perfectly quiet with lots of extra touches. Very pleasant dining...

We have stayed many times over the past ten years at Homelands. Never disappointed, consistent - we stay in the Garden Room, comfort, hospitality and excellent food. A good place to stay either for one night, short stay or a holiday. Barnard Castle is an excellent base. The welcome and hospitality makes you feel at home.

Beautiful house and garden in a good location. Deborah made us most welcome on arrival and booked us a table for our evening meal. The room was clean, very comfortable and well appointed. Brian cooks an excellent breakfast, and was very entertaining and helpful. We have no hesitation in recommending this B & B.
