Holiday accommodation

Winstonberry is located in a beautiful grade II listed country town house in Gainford, Darlington.

We occupy both the ground and first floor with our café, shop and holiday apartment/ B&B, all of which have undergone complete transformation and opened in Summer 2018!.

Our 3 boutique bedrooms have been decorated and furnished to a very high standard.  They all have gorgeous sash windows and overlook the pretty village green and outside terrace.

Gainford is a beautiful, historic village which sits on the bank of the River Tees in County Durham.

It was once cited as one of England's prettiest villages and has a mix of amazing architecture including the Jacobean Manor House, the Georgian High Row & medieval Village Green.


The apartment is ideally situated just off the A67 between Darlington & Barnard Castle, making it easily accessible and a great place to stay if you're looking to explore the area, whilst enjoying the tranquility of a quiet village setting. With the Yorkshire Dales, Weardale & Teesdale all right on the door step, there is so much to see and do near by.Local attractions include the beautiful Bowes Museum, Raby Castle, Richmond Castle, Hamsterley Forest & More!
