Staindrop is an historic village in Teesdale, which lies in the south-west of County Durham.
The Village is a thriving and vibrant community with lots of local organisations, a post office, general store, butchers, several more shops, a public house and two schools. The layout of the village is linear and reflects its medieval origins, with many of the houses built of stone and clustered around a large village green. The magnificent local church, St Mary’s, dates back to the late Anglo-Saxon period.
The village and parish sit amongst wonderful countryside. Raby Castle, with its Deer Park, is close by, as well as the ancient market town of Barnard Castle, a short drive away. Upper Teesdale is also only a short journey away and here you can find High Force, one of the highest waterfalls in England.
