What Bowes offers for Cottage Breaks

Bowes Castle is a famous local landmark. Built between 1171 and 1187 during the time of King Henry II, the quite substantial ruins stand on the site of a Roman fort. It’s the keep we see today along with a moat on two sides. Another interesting outing is promised at Bowes Museum, just outside the nearby market town of Barnard Castle. This museum is housed in a stunning building, and its collection of European fine arts and decorative arts is equally impressive. Purpose built in the 1800s, exhibits include paintings, textiles, fashion and silver, and the collection spans 20 galleries, covering items from the 14th century to the 20th century. You can also explore the grounds, and children enjoy activities designed just for them.

Head around 5 miles south on you self-catering break and you can be in the inspirational scenery of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Opportunities for walking, cycling and wildlife watching abound in the natural beauty of this park.

Book a Bowes cottage and look forward to discovering some of the best of Durham on holiday.
