The hamlet of Holwick is situated just three miles from Middleton-in-Teesdale on the south side of the river. It consists of a loose cluster of about thirty houses at the end of a quiet country lane. The lane ends at the Earl of Strathmore’s shooting lodge.
Before boundary changes it was the most northerly settlement in Yorkshire. Now it is in County Durham.
Most of the buildings in Holwick are farms, the homes of local tradespeople and holiday cottages. Many of the farmers in the parish are tenant hill farmers working the Strathmore estate.
At the centre of the community is the Strathmore Arms, (shown opposite) a quiet country pub which is only a stones throw from The Barn. The pub is open six days a week and sells excellent local real ales and great food. NOTE: THE PUB IS CURRENTLY CLOSED AND UP FOR SALE
