  • “Lovely cottage.”

    Very clean and spacious, nice decor (traditional without being twee). Nice views from a big window downstairs over fields, easy walking distance to a reasonable pub (didn't try their food, so can't comment on that). The location is good, all sorts of things within a reasonable drive. ...

    Very clean and spacious, nice decor (traditional without being twee). Nice views from a big window downstairs over fields, easy walking distance to a reasonable pub (didn't try their food, so can't comment on that). The location is good, all sorts of things within a reasonable drive. Owner was really helpful - had a call just before to say the boiler had broken and refunding two days straight away. Boiler was fixed just before we arrived on the Friday (but might have needed people in to fix it on the Saturday). These things happen, and what you want is somebody on it fast.

About the property

Barn Cottage is a characterful stone-built cottage set in a peaceful location within the picturesque village of Newbiggin in the heart of Bishopdale.

This cottage is ideally located for walking, cycling, and visiting the many local attractions and historical sites.

Relax in the beautifully planted cottage garden and enjoy cosy evenings in beside the fire.

The open plan lounge/dining area is spacious and charming.

Beautiful oak beams, exposed stone walls, multi-fuel stove, plush sofas and tasteful décor create an inviting and cosy ambiance.

Enjoy stunning views through the arched window from the window seat and dining table.

The country-style kitchen is well equipped with all the essentials.

Off the kitchen is an annex, with a separate entrance for storage and somewhere to leave muddy boots and coats.

The spiral staircase with its arched window leads to two bedrooms and a bathroom.

The bathroom is fitted with quality modern fixtures and the bedrooms are well appointed with contemporary soft furnishings of a very good standard.

The large master bedroom has a super-king bed, dressing table, built-in wardrobes and a seating area ideal to enjoy morning coffee whilst admiring the outlook over hills and the village.

The second bedroom is warm and inviting with a lovely aspect over the garden and features a king-size bed.

Outside, beside the kitchen is a patio ideal for dining alfresco and stone stairs lead up to a lovely private cottage garden with a further patio.

If any of your party are wishing to store their bikes, there is secure lockable storage available in the garden.

Set out for the day and explore the local area, where you will find welcoming pubs within walking distance of the cottage, ideal for those nights where you don’t feel like cooking.

Grab your walking boots and marvel at the excellent variety of walking trails on offer which showcase the very best of the luscious Dales countryside.

For a wider selection of amenities, head to the nearby town of Leyburn, home to Forbidden Corner where you can explore the trails speckled with fascinating statues and buildings.

For a truly relaxing afternoon, hop aboard the steam locomotive at the Leyburn Station and indulge in a scrumptious afternoon tea as you see the sights.

Just a little further is Hawes, where you can learn more about rural life at the Dales Countryside Museum or pay a visit to the impressive Hardraw Force Waterfall for a peaceful moment.

Barn Cottage is a lovely cottage for exploring the beautiful surrounding areas.

About the location


Leyburn 7 miles; Hawes 9 miles.

In lower Bishopdale, where the glacial moraine and drumlins cause small undulations in the landscape, the village of Newbiggin nestles close to the valley floor on the south side of the dale. Although Newbiggin means 'New Buildings', the term is relative since here are some of the finest examples of 17th century dwellings in the Dales. This pretty and ancient village in the heart of Wensleydale is situated in truly beautiful countryside, with old stone cottages set out in a long line through a minor road that wends its way through the village. This is a walker's paradise, with wonderful Dales countryside, magnificent views and the small, but spectacular Cauldron Falls still delighting visitors since the days when the great artist, J M W Turner, captured its watery magic. The local pub is set on the outskirts of the village and serves fine ales and excellent homemade cuisine. There is also an excellent range of amenities in the nearby market towns of Hawes and Leyburn.
