Blackton Grange, Barnard Castle, County Durham, sleeps 10-40 in 10 bedrooms.

Blackton Grange is a traditional stone-built farmhouse which nestles deep in the heart of the North Pennines, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), rumoured to be England's last wilderness. Enjoying unspoilt views of hills and Blackton Reservoir, Blackton Grange sits between the picturesque towns of Middleton-in-Teesdale and Barnard Castle.

The property is fully equipped to welcome up to 40 guests for accommodation inside the house itself, with further sleeping potential in our camping field adjacent to the main property. We have 10 comfy bedrooms (two of which are en-suite), with a mix of single, double and bunkbeds to cater for every type of group. There are 5 shower rooms, 5 WCs, and a disabled bathroom on the ground floor. We also offer both an indoor and outdoor meeting room, and a laundry room for guests to use.

The large, cosy lounge with open log fire is the ideal place for groups to gather and relax. Blackton also has a fully-equipped professional kitchen and a rustic dining room seating up to 24.

Situated in 11 acres of stunning hills and fields, our wonderful outdoor facilities include a garden patio with picnic benches, BBQ and an amazing view, and a camping field adjacent to the house.

There are hundreds of activities available at or in close proximity to Blackton. Simply pop on your walking boots to explore the local peaks and rolling moors on your doorstep. Home to some of the country's best walking landscapes and plenty of beautiful wildlife, guests are guaranteed to leave Blackton with a lot of happy memories. The Baldersdale Valley is a fantastic place to explore on foot, and the Pennine Way runs alongside the house.

Facilities include disabled access, wifi, satellite tv, 10 bedrooms (two en suite), open log fire, bbq. Please visit our website for a short video on the property.
