A group of 14 of us (8 adults, 1 teenager and 5 children) stayed at the cottage for New Year 2016. We had a brilliant time. There was plenty of space for everyone. The dining room had 2 tables and lots of chairs to allow us to sit together for all our meals. Plus the kitchen had everything we needed for a large group. The kids all adored the dogs owned by the owner and loved when they popped around to the courtyard outside the cottage during our stay. They also loved playing hide and seek in such a large house and really loved the loft room or what we called 'The Nanny McPhee room' upstairs with lots of beds. Will hopefully visit again sometime.
Good value and quality accommodation for a larger group. but they want 100 characters so I will just h
Stayed at Raygill Farm for the weekend for my friend 50th birthday with 10 friends, we arrived and Peter was there to great us and showed us around explained where everything is and if we needed anything to phone him.
The house is great for partying plenty of rooms we all loved it, we went into Barnard Castle on the saturday taxi was about £10 £15 for a mini bus which works out only couple of pound each, we used Hodgens and Ace had a great day there some great pubs got back to house on the night and carried on partying.
You do get the smell of the farm occasionally but that was not a problem as you are on a working farm.
Would defiantly recommend it for groups for whatever occasion and we will be back.

Peter communicated very quickly and clearly throughout the booking process and was happy to show us around each room when we arrived- which was very helpful!
The accommodation was perfect for our mixed group of 12 with large outdoor spaces and plenty of socialising room inside (big kitchen and living space)! We are a group who enjoy sport and Peter designated us a field to which we could crack on with football/rugby/rounders throughout the day!
Not far at all from Barnard castle, so easy to pop in for a pub lunch!
Myself and 15 friends stayed at Raygill farm for a few nights and had a wonderful time.
We were lucky enough to have great weather on the first night and sat outside in the garden area with the horses and dogs all around. It is in a great location with a lovely walk to town through the woods. Barnard castle is a beautiful town, and the Three Horseshoes Hotel (a pub recommended by Peter) accommodated for all of us and was fantastic food.
The living room was spacious with a lot of seating for all. The kitchen was slightly basic but had all of the amenities necessary for cooking with plenty of fridge and freezer space.
Overall, a lovely stay and would recommend for a country retreat.
We had a lovely stay in this cottage, 5 families wanting a catch up/ weekend break. Kids loved the surrounding farm land & open fields. Cottage had all the facilities needed, owner is also trying to update some facilities. Lovely walks in surrounding area. Very enjoyable weekend, looking to book another weekend stay next year.
