Beautifully furnished, it perfectly combines the late Victorian style with quintessential Italian charm, it offers individually designed bedrooms, a friendly welcome and hearty homemade food, that is the pride of Glenda and Daniele, the Italian hosts of this family run hidden gem, as described by most of their guests.
“Homelands - A Family Heritage” is the book Daniele and Glenda dedicated to their Homelands, to their family members and pets, who are no longer with them but whose memory remains more vivid than ever.

Just returned from this beautiful guest house fantastic food, lovely accommodation owners so very friendly and exceptionally dog friendly we stayed in the garden Room and it was just perfect for us with little Bobby. I can honestly say that we will definitely be back soon. Thanks so much for the great weekend and fabulous food.
Homelands Guest House is 10 stars
What a wonderful place to stay at for 3 days. The service was excellent and breakfast was really good. I would also suggest booking a dinner or 2 as its one of the best dinners I ever had. There is also plenty to do in Barnard Castle and the surrounding area. They also will do your laundry for you at a reasonable price. Plenty of free on-street parking. Thank you, Glenda and Danielle, for this wonderful time.
Home away from home
Thank you to our hosts, we enjoyed a fabulous overnight stay. Homelands really is a home away from home. Our room was spacious. Large comfortable king size bed, spotlessly clean. Wonderful locally sourced breakfast, extra touches such as a teapot and mince pies in the room.
The hosts were very welcoming with tea and coffee and home-made cake. We had a lovely clean and fresh bedroom with toiletries. The breakfast was fantastic and very filling. We had somewhere safe to store our bikes. Barnard Castle was a nice place to visit.
Feel like at home
We spent a couple nights in Homelands, the days when our daughter got boarded in Barnard Castle School and Glenda and Daniele made us feel like at home. The food was great and the en suite room absolutely relaxing and warm.
Welcoming and homely with a touch of real class
Spent 3 days at Homelands and had a wonderful time. Central location 5 minutes walk to centre of Barnard Castle. We were in the garden room suite which was charming and well appointed. Breakfast lovely and Glenda and Danielle were perfect hosts, friendly, helpful and very welcoming. Will definitely be back to stay next time in Barnard Castle. Plenty to do in the town and some beautiful walks.
Found this place at the last minute, got a room because someone else had to cancel. A very lucky find. The owners are very nice and friendly, the room was immaculately clean (a priority post covid, felt safe), the breakfast was fantastic, local butcher sausages were so tasty.
