What we offer on a school trip
Blackton Grange is a traditional stone-built farmhouse which nestles deep in the heart of the North Pennines, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Enjoying unspoilt views of hills and Blackton Reservoir, Blackton Grange sits between the picturesque towns of Middleton-in-Teesdale and Barnard Castle.
Blackton Grange accommodates 40 guests in total, with further sleeping potential in our onsite camping field. The property has 10 comfy bedrooms (two of which are en-suite), with a mix of single, double and bunkbeds to cater for every type of group. There are five shower rooms, five WCs and a disabled bathroom on the ground floor. We also offer both an indoor and outdoor meeting room, and a laundry room for guests to use.
The large, cosy lounge with open log fire is the ideal place for groups to gather and relax. Blackton Grange also has a fully-equipped professional kitchen and a dining room seating up to 24, and onsite catering can be easily arranged on request. Situated in 11 acres of stunning hills and fields, our wonderful outdoor facilities include a garden patio with picnic benches, BBQ and an amazing view, and a camping field adjacent to the house.
