Bedrooms 4
Property type barn
Minimum Stay 2 - 31 nights


About the property

Close to Durham City, secluded position with outstanding views

Converted to a very high standard by the present owner, this spacious barn dates back over one hundred years. Surrounded by glorious open countryside, this barn is detached within a large lawned area, has lots of parking for cars and makes an ideal holiday home for families, sensible groups or a romantic and relaxing break.

The indoor heated swimming pool with large hot tub is attached to the property and has magnificent views over to the Yorkshire Dales.

Catley Hill is ideally positioned to visit a number of great towns and cities being only 9 miles from Durham City, 20 miles from the popular quayside in Newcastle upon Tyne, 10 miles from Hartlepool Marina and Historic Quay and just over an hour from the beautiful Northumberland Coast as it is from the Yorkshire Dales and the North Yorkshire Moors. So whether you wanted to stay at home and relax in our luxurious facilities or take a trip to one of the many interesting and nearby attractions, it is up to you.

NEW FOR 2015 - we are creating a fourth bedroom overlooking the swimming pool. This bedroom will have a king size bed and ensuite facilities as well as a large balcony. Pictures to follow.

This fourth bedroom will be separate from the main accommodation with its own access.

Excellent holiday

  • 5 of 5

Returned from a lovely week at Catley Barn. The barn in immaculate with all facilities you would need. From kitchen appliances, cutlery, crockery, cleaning products to dressing gowns for the pool. We had two children with us aged 10 and 12. These spent most of the week in the pool and playing with the owners four lovely dogs. The barn is a credit to its owners Barbara and Guy who couldn't do enough and very welcoming. They were also extremely accommodation to one of our party needing to have their oxygen delivered ready for the week.

Would highly recommend to anyone of any age.

Thankyou very much for the use of your fabulous barn.

We will definitely be back again.

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

Lovely stay in a beautiful property. Maintained and cleaned to the highest standard. We had 8 of us staying for a girls weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the barn - I would really recommend this place for a family or group getaway, very quiet rural location with plenty of outside space and lovely views too. Thank you so much.

Definitely recommend!!! We would go again!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 nights, 10 ladies aged from 21 to 60, and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. It was so clean, modern and plenty of space for everyone, very luxury and homely!

The owners live next door and was so helpful, we were shown around on arrival, how to work the hot tub and pool area, there was a dressing gown for everyone and towels provided. On the second night the owner was happy to call round to help us to set up the karaoke, and ended up bringing his own tele round for us! And didn't mind the noise!

There is a massive garden with a small park area and trampoline for children, a B&q area but unfortunately it was snowing for us! The landlady was happy to arrange for a beautician to come round to do treatments, unfortunately she was already booked up that weekend so if you would like this then I would suggest to book in advance.

All in all a perfect weekend!! :-)
