  • "A lovely comfortable cottage in a quiet location."

    2 good sized bedrooms with en-suites and a brilliant size kitchen. We had arrived on a very wet day and were pleasantly surprised to see the welcome hamper. A nice personal touch. Everything is clean and in good condition. It took us a couple of days to realise that there is a vacuum cleaner under the guise of a tall rabbit in the dining area. Ingenious! We had thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Highly recommended.

    Thank you for your feedback we really appreciate your comments Look forward to you revisiting us at some time Very pleasant people Regards jacky Phil Property Owner

    Fish and chip van on Tuesday and Thai van on Thursday we're superb, and the cottage is well located for trips to the dales, moors, Richmond town (beautiful) and only 30mins to Durham with its stunning cathedral. The welcome pack from the owners was a lovely touch, thank you.

    Beautifully renovated and modern inside. Fully equipped and brilliant size kitchen. Lovely having two good size bedrooms each with ensuite facilities and walk in wardrobes. Welcome hamper a nice touch. Situated in a beautiful village and very peaceful. Less than 5 minutes from the A1(M) motorway so a great base for visiting the local area. Hosts were very helpful. Would definitely recommend and return if in the area.

  • "This was a lovely holiday cottage and there were a few unexpected welcome additions which immediately won us over."

    There was a hamper of essentials such as bread, milk, cheese, biscuits, coffee, etc plus a bottle of wine; toiletries in the en suites and boxes of tissues in all the rooms. The beds were very comfortable and we slept well every night as it was a quiet area. 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. Although there was a local pub it didn't serve food but four miles away the pub at Stapleton served delicious food of every nation. All in all this was a delightful holiday and comfortable cottage.

  • "We have had a wonderful week staying at Magnolia Cottage."

    The cottage it self is beautiful and finished to a high standard, and has literally everything and more that you could need for a week away. We had a lovely warm welcome from the owners and nothing was too much trouble, and appreciated a fabulous welcome hamper full of goodies. Barton is a lovely little village and a perfect location for exploring the dales, with York, Richmond and Skipton all being great days out. The fish and chip van on a Tuesday to the village is a must and would recommend The Bridge Inn down the road at Stapleton for a delicious meal. We’ve had a lovely family break and would highly recommend Magnolia Cottage, thank you for a lovely week!

  • "What can you say about Magnolia cottage in the lovely and friendly village of Barton."

    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 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.

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.

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.
