    The property was home from home , in a great location to visit the Yorkshire dales National Park. On arrival there was a thank you card, chocolate and a bottle of wine. The owner had left a carton of milk and butter in the fridge. The property was spotless throughout and the wheelhouse had been restored to a high standard. The log fire was a real bonus too. We stayed for a week and found the dual washing machine tumble dryer invaluable. The owners had thought of everything. Dishwasher, free view TV, hairdryer, deck chairs, coat stand, fresh supply of logs and kindle wood etc We have nothing but praise for this property and would highly recommended this to anyone.

The property

A most unusual and unique former wheelhouse, sitting on the village green alongside Barton Beck in the pretty Dales village of Barton, just eight miles from Richmond.

Fully renovated, this charming semi-detached cottage, built in the early 1800s, still retains many original features of the former wheelhouse and was used to inspire the picture entitled ?The Refuge?

by Rodney Matthews.

The features include a spectacular beamed ceiling, and parts of the original workings, which all add to the immense charm.

This cottage has an open plan living area with a modern, well-equipped kitchen, dining area and sitting area with comfortable two and three seater settees, woodburning stove, 3D television and 3D Blu-ray player, all tastefully furnished with contemporary styling.

A ground floor master bedroom with en-suite facilities, a modern, ground floor bathroom and a first floor bedroom with 'secret window' overlooking the main living room all combine to create something a little bit different that is ideal for a small family or for a romantic break.

Enjoy a stroll along the nearby stream, visit the nearby Roman ruins, or, for the more energetic, take advantage of the many walks available in this attractive area including the renowned Teesdale Way, just a mile from the cottage.

A short drive away is the fascinating market town of Barnard Castle, with its cobbled streets, quaint alleyways, The Bowes Museum of art and of course, its dramatic castle.

Beautiful Raby Castle, the National Railway Museum, Richmond and the High Force waterfall are also nearby.

With the Northern Dales and the Lake District waiting to be discovered further afield, this charming cottage has much to offer!

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.
