  • "This was our 2nd visit to Magnolia Cottage."

    The reason for our return was that this is a very well kept,clean and cosy cottage. All needs are well catered for. The summer house is a perfect addition to the cottage. Great for some quiet time. The village is small and quiet, however, the local pub and village shop are ideal. The added bonus is that the cottage is only 5 minutes from the motorway which takes you down to South Yorkshire and up to County Durham and beyond. Lots to do and see for all the family. You won't be bored. More importantly, the lovely owners live just across the street and are on hand if needed. We are currently looking at re-booking next year. Well done Jacky and Phil.

  • "Great cottage located in a lovely village just off of the A1."

    Cottage was very well appointed and the log burner was a great bonus with the weather changing the week we were there. Both bedrooms with an ensuite and we were not disturbed once during the whole week. Would definitely recommend to others and will use again when exploring North Yorkshire and County Durham, which this cottage is ideally situated to do. Great Stay.

    Jackie and Philip the owners were very friendly and helpful. Very quiet and relaxing. Pretty central for visiting places. The cottage itself was home from home feeling. The outside garden area was bigger than we thought with a lovely summer house. Would recommend. We would like to book again in the future.

  • "My first impression was that the cottage was cosy, seemed recently modernised and spotlessly clean."

    The owner lives just across the road and came to check things were OK as soon as she saw us arrive. The welcome pack of tea etc was a lovely touch, as was the box containing guides to local attractions. For a cold and wet week in March the cottage kept us warm. Two rooms, each with an en-suite, was perfect for us. The bedrooms were comfortable with plenty of space to hang/store clothes and I was pleased there was a hairdryer. The kitchen was well equipped and having a freezer as well as fridge turned out to be more useful than I expected. Barton itself hasn't much in the way of facilities but the proximity to the A1(M) and Scotch Corner gave us plenty of scope for days out. We had a lovely week and would happily return to Magnolia Cottage.

  • "Magnolia cottage is a hidden gem situated in the small, picturesque village of Barton in north Yorkshire."

    The very friendly owners live just across the street and are on hand should you need anything. The cottage was clean, comfortable, nicely furnished and had the most comfortable beds. The added bonus was that both bedrooms have their own ensuite bathroom. The recently redesigned garden and summer house is ideal if you need some "time out" and personal space. The village has a well stocked local shop, the Half Moon pub ( no food, just good beer) ! and a travelling fish and chip van on a Tuesday. The cottage ideally situated for visiting County Durham and Yorkshire as the A1 and Scotch Corner is only a few miles away. We explored the local area which is steeped in railway history, visited the Tanhill Inn, the highest pub in the UK and Newby Hall ( recommend the guided tour) which has an excellent permanent dolls house collection, beautiful gardens, miniature railway, boat rides and a not too shabby cafe ! All-in-all we had a very good all round holiday experience and plan to return soon.

    It is in a good location for exploring the surrounding areas. The owners are very friendly and approachable and it was nice having chats with them. We were there during the recent record breaking heatwave and the bedrooms retained the heat even when the temperatures dropped. So it would be good if fans could be provided for the bedrooms.

    This is a lovely cottage, decorated and equipped to a very high standard with everything you're likely to need. The owners (Jacky and Phil) live opposite and were on hand on arrival or when needed but totally respected our privacy throughout our stay. The cottage is in the quiet, pretty village of Barton with great access to wherever you want to go in the area. The village pub was also very friendly but doesn't do food. However, there were several pubs a short drive away that did fantastic food. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Magnolia Cottage.

An easy to use wood burning stove in the sitting room was an additional pleasure on the chilly evenings although the central heating was very efficient anyway. The cottage was just a short easy drive to Richmond and then onwards into the Yorkshire Dales and the delights of Reeth, Muker, Leyburn, Hawes and the Wensleydale cheese factory, plus Masham and Bedale.

    Firstly you could not ask for a better standard of accommodation which has been well thought out and equipped with all you require be it a short or longer stay. Its location for exploring the nearby towns and villages could not be better and if you want to take the fast rout with its proximity to the M1/A1 you can reach most places of interest in less than an hour. For fuel would head to either Morrison's or Sainsbury in Darlington about 6 miles away as much cheaper that the service stations on the motorway. If eating at the Bridge inn (3.2 miles away) beware the portion sizes as they are huge and probably best to book to be sure of a table.

The property

Magnolia Cottage is a delightful property dating back to the 19th century, and is set amidst beautiful rolling countryside in the pretty village of Barton near Richmond in the Yorkshire Dales.

The attention to detail throughout is evident, from an original range cooker now used for decoration only, to thoughtful touches in every room.

The well-equipped kitchen with dining area is a light and spacious room, a magnet for guests to mingle before dinner.

The cosy sitting room is an oasis whatever the time of year, and for those chillier nights the comforting glow of the multi-fuel stove is really addictive.

There are two charming bedrooms offering every comfort including en-suite shower rooms.

Richmond, just over 7 miles away, is one of the many jewels in Yorkshire's crown and is the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales.

This inspiring town is complete with a Norman castle, cobbled market place, superb architecture and a great range of shops and tea rooms to choose from.

The magnificent Bowes Museum offers a fantastic day out for everyone and the fascinating musical automaton, The Silver Swan is a much loved icon of the museum.

Discover Herriot country which includes beautiful countryside and the charming and picturesque market towns and villages of Northallerton, Thirsk, Great Ayton, Bedale and Easingwold.

This stunning area has changed very little over the centuries and is fortunate to have preserved its beauty and tradition including a choice of heritage pubs, village greens and age old customs and with great road links in all directions a new adventure can be taken every single day.

Yorkshire is acclaimed for its stunning walks, awesome caving, amazing food and its renowned hospitality.

One visit is never enough!

About the location


Richmond 8 miles.

The attractive and peaceful Dales village of Barton is situated in lovely rolling countryside, just a few miles to the north of the popular market town of Richmond. Barton has a lovely village green, a stream winding its way through the village, a pub, a shop and a Post Office. Nearby Piercebridge is renowned for its Roman heritage, which dates back to around 70 AD. The Piercebridge Roman Fort Site, a recognised ancient monument, forms part of the region’s Dere Street Roman Trail, a celebration of the rich Roman heritage still to be enjoyed in the area. Forming part of the Teesdale Way, and within easy reach of the Cleveland Way, this walker’s paradise provides an excellent base to explore this delightful Dales area including nearby Swaledale and Weardale, with many bridleways, footpaths, cycle trails and lovely riverside walks available. Local attractions include the magnificent Raby Castle in nearby Staindrop, the Bowes Museum, York’s National Railway Museum, Durham Cathedral and of course the delightful market town of Barnard Castle. Nearby Richmond grew up around its castle set high above the River Swale, with panoramic river views. Within Richmond, narrow streets and alleys radiate from the cobbled market place (which has a weekly market and monthly farmers’ market) and there are numerous shops, pubs and restaurants to enjoy. The Georgian Theatre is one of the oldest surviving theatres in the country with visitors enjoying its regular productions all year round. An ideal location for exploring all of Swaledale, Teesdale and the Yorkshire Dales.
