The cottage was perfect; spacious with beautiful oak furniture, underfloor heating, friendly owners and comfy beds. A fab time was had by all!

It was a beautiful cottage, everything was perfect.

It was a stunning cottage ideal for a big family, there was 8 of us and the setting of the house was perfect.

We had a wonderful stay at Cobblers Barn. A beautiful property in a great location.

It was perfect and we did not want to leave.

Cobblers Barn is amazing! From the peaceful surroundings and the cleanliness of the barn, to the fantastic hot tub, the comfort of the barn and how well equipped it is. Everything was just perfect.

A perfect place to stay. It was a stunning property at very good value, it was as we expected and more.

We didn't leave the cottage, the views were outstanding. It was perfectly laid out.

The property is in a wonderful position, it was scenic, beautifully appointed and very comfortable. It was amazing sitting in the hot tub looking at the hills as the sun went down and then seeing the stars come out!

The location was beautiful and the house was fantastic. The owners were helpful and friendly.

We booked Cobblers Barn for my Dad's 70th Birthday weekend and it was fantastic. Everyone who came commented on how perfect it was from the layout to the views. We were all impressed with everything and we are already looking at booking again.

The property was in a great location. The owners were friendly, warming and there if needed. It was a beautiful cottage, spacious and well equipped. There were lots of walks on your doorstep and good food and a nice atmosphere at the local pub. The hot tub was a nice little extra bit of fun. Would highly recommend this property.

Liked absolutely everything and more.

Cobblers Barn is a fantastic conversion done to a very high standard. There was plenty of space in the property.

The cottage was amazing, well worth the money we paid. I couldn't fault anything. We had a very warm welcome from the owner who showed us around the cottage and gave us the history behind it. I like that as you could tell she was proud of what he had built. Also there was a few essentials there for us on arrival, tea , milk and fresh homemade bread!! The cottage it self was spot on. It was clean, it was welcoming and homely. The heated flooring in the room was a massive treat. We went to celebrate 2 birthdays and we wanted to go somewhere with a hot tub and with it being the middle of November we didn't move out of it all night. It was lovely and warm. I am definitely looking to go back next year, it's a great place for a group of friends or family to go. Really happy with my stay and it's made my birthday more memorable!!

Simply the best

Our 2nd stay at Cobblers Barn. First in 2016 was our first cottage holiday. We have done several since but always wanted to return here. With the Covid situation, we decided in May that now was the time and booked a week in September. We`ve been back home a week. Everyone is missing Cobblers Barn and Mickleton, especially the Sunday Lunch at the Blacksmiths which was the best everyone had had. Tea at the Rose and Crown in Romaldkirk was fantastic. Our visit to the Kirk Inn over the road prior was one that we will be talking about for many years for several reasons. The Barn has everything a large group could wish for. It is very spacious even when fully occupied. Mickleton is great. So many lovely walks. Low Force is a particular highlight. We hope to return.

Highly recommend

We stayed at the Cobbler's Barn in February 2020 and couldn't recommend it highly enough! A family of 4 with 2 teenage children, girlfriend, grandparents and a cocker spaniel, the house was spacious enough for the 7 of us to be comfortable for 3 nights (could happily have stayed longer). The owner is lovely and made our arrival extremely welcoming, with fresh bread baking there was milk in the fridge and a selection of goodies waiting for us! I'd ordered a Tesco delivery for the day we arrived so we were well stocked up for the duration.The barn, with its underfloor heating and wood burner was warm and cosy, which was just what we needed as the weather was terrible! That didn't stop us venturing out to the high & low force waterfalls and nearby Barnard Castle and the village itself is really pretty for walking the dog. It was lovely to come back to the barn, choose a dvd from the collection provided and snuggle up in comfort on the reclining sofa to watch on the large screen together. With fantastic facilities to ensure outdoor clothes could dry out we could make use of the hot tub before settling in for the night playing cards, making pancakes for supper and sampling a few glasses of wine. Shame the local pub was closed while we were there as it had such good reviews for the food. We would love to return! Thank you for having us and sorry it took me such a long time to write this!

Beautiful peaceful getaway

The cobblers barn long weekend away was bought as a Christmas gift off all of our husband's, there was 10 of us in total. We had a lovely 4 day 3 night relaxing stay here, the barn it beautifully decorated, and fits in with the lovely surroundings, the barn is fully equipped with all the amenities needed.

Family Birthday getaway

We stayed at the Cobblers Barn in Feb 2019. We were celebrating a family members special birthday. We stayed 2 nights as a girls break and the final night with our partners. The barn is gorgeous with all amenities that you would need catered for. The barn has 4 bedrooms, all with large wardrobes and 2 en-suite. It is kept immaculately clean. The dining / kitchen area is a large space and is ideal for family meals for large groups. The living room is also very large with 3 x 3 seater sofa and 1 x 2 seater sofa. There are 2 TV's one in the dining room and one in the living room. WiFi is good, although can be a bit iffy with the signal upstairs. The garden area is ample for sitting outside with many doors to give access to the garden. The hot tub is great and a fun way to relax. The only query I have is that it says it has parking for up to 5 vehicles, but I could not see that unless there was parking I did not see. We parked on the road at the side of the house which is on a steep incline, so make sure your handbrakes is working lol. The Barn is a bit out of the way, we ordered a take away from a take away in Barnard castle on the first night. We found that the take-aways don't deliver but a company called Speedy will pick up your delivery and pay for it and deliver to you. The delivery charge to the barn was £8, and it does take about a 15 minute journey so food might need warming up. However about a 10 minute walk is The Crown pub which has excellent food choices. All in all we had a great stay at The Cobblers Barn and I would recommend and visit again.


What a place!! We have come home today and I just want to go back. Karen was so friendly, met ya i think he first day and took us through everything we needed to know. The hot tub was red hot and the whole house was just gorgeous. I don’t think i have ever slept so well, the beds were so comfy. The Kitchen was amazing and there was enough pots, pans and trays etc! We were on a girlie weekend and we do like a drink, we did have to be mindful of neighbours given it’s in a small village. We were allowed out the back after 10pm, so the hot tub couldn’t be used at that time, I thought it could be an issue but it wasn’t! And we really didn’t want to get any complaints from the neighbours because we would love to go back. Highly recommended for groups, families or couples, nice walks near by, views are stunning and there’s a pub not too far away. What else could you want! Thanks Karen we hope to see you again soon xx

A lovely stay

A beautiful cottage in a very quiet village. It was just what we needed for a quiet weekend. The cottage had everything we needed. We would definitely stay again.

Fabulous week

What a fantastic week we had at Cobblers Barn. 7 adults, 4 kids and 2 dogs all had an absolute ball. House had everything you needed and more, was absolutely stunning. Lovely welcome from Karen and her brothers, such lovely people and accommodation, cannot wait to come back.

Great 'girls' weekend

We stayed as a group of 8 friends and had a fantastic weekend . We were welcomed by Karen and greeted at the cottage by the smell of freshly baked bread . Cobblers Barn had everything we wanted. It was beautifully decorated , spacious and well equipped . The location was perfect with stunning views all around . We had perfect weather which was an added bonus as we were able to walk to Middleton in Teasdale and enjoy the hot tub on our return . The log fire was cosy on an evening and the underfloor heating a luxury . We took advantage of the recommended caterer who came in to serve afternoon tea on Sunday which was lovely . We had a meal at the nearby pub 'The Crown' which was outstanding . We had the reassurance that Karen and her brother were only a call away should we have needed anything however everything was perfect . We would definately return and would not hesitate to recommend Coblers Barn .

Lovely cottage

This cottage was great for a girls weekend as all the bedrooms had twins, although one of the twin rooms beds were small. The directions and instructions were perfect and there was a lovely welcome of freshly baked bread. The wood burning stove was lovely as was the hot tub after being out for the day either walking/shopping We had a problem with the upstairs showers but owners were only a phone call away.

Girls weekend

7 of us stayed in cobblers barn in November for 3 nights... it was amazing! We've tried a few different cottages/barns with hot tubs & this is definitely the best! Very warm welcome, all amenities you need & beds very comfy! Only slight downside is the barn sleeps 10 & hot tub seats 6 but still an amazing stay! Loved it so much we have booked again for November this year!! Can't wait

Loved our stay at Cobblers Barn

Stopped here for 2 weeks in August. 6 adults, 2 children and 2 dogs. 2 lovely pubs within a few minutes walking distance. Lots of great walks nearby. The cottage is large with lots of room to ensure privacy. Hot tub was great. We loved the tranquility. Would definitely stop here again.

Superb high end rental

Stayed with a group of friends and thoroughly recommend this property.i have stayed in quite a few holiday rentals but I think this is probably the best. It is very well appointed - decor and furnishings are excellent and love the kitchen which is very well equipped. The hot tub is lovely. Only disappointment is not being allowed to use it after 10 at night. I do understand the reasons why (neighbours!) The pub in the village also does really good food. I definitely hope to return!

The Best holiday cottage

We booked the Cobblers barn as a group of 8, consisting of 5 adults, 1 teenager, 2 under 6 years olds and our dogs. As a family we have stayed in several holiday cottages but we have to say this was by far the best!!!!! We were welcomed by a smiling Karen and shown around the property and given all the information we needed, she had also left us some basics, chocolates and fresh bread baking!!! what a lovely surprise! the cottage is more than well equipped, nothing is lacking, every utensil you could need is in the kitchen along with a massive range of dishes, pots and pans! previous visits to other cottages have always ended up in a visit to a shop to get some cooking utensil but not at the cobblers barn! the barn is well designed, beautifully laid out, clean, comfortable, welcoming and has lovely decor. The beds are very comfortable, bathrooms are luxurious and the underfloor heating throughout kept us all warm and cozy in the snow! The wood burning stove was great and we often sat the kids in front of it after they had been in the hot tub!! The hot tub tops it off, sitting there bubbling away looking at the hills and listening to the sheep baaaaa! was just lovely! there is plenty to do in the local area and a visit to the crown gastro pub is a must! we used the chef service and had an afternoon tea served to us in the cottage, this is a great idea and the food was wonderful!!! there is nothing we could fault, Alistair and Karen have it spot on. We cant wait to return as no other cottage would compare now!!!


Myself and my friends have just come back from a fantastic break in Cobblers Barn. It is everything you expect and more!! A beautiful property that is of a very high spec, everything you need is under this roof. The owners are delightful and cannot do enough to help, and extremely welcoming on your arrival. The views from the hot tub are amazing. The village and surrounding areas are stunning and the local pub 'The Crown" has outstanding food, just a 5 minute walk away. This has been my hen weekend and couldn't have been any perfect. I will be back this time with my family, to let them enjoy it as much as I did. Perfect hen weekend, perfect company and a perfect choice in accommodation.

Stunning...well equipped...highly recommended!

I just spent 3 nights away at Cobblers Barn with 9 friends. The cottage looks stunning online and does not disappoint at all. It is very well finished and spacious and has everything you need for a lovely relaxed weekend. The owners are very friendly and live close by and are happy to come and help with advice/any issues. The village itself is lovely and The Crown pub which is a 5 minute walk serves amazing quality food...The views are also stunning and the hot tub is the icing on the it!!!

10/10 Couldn't have wish for more!!

Just got back from an excellent stay at Cobblers barn. The cottage was spacious, clean and had everything we wanted and more. We had lots of fun in the hot tub!! The owners were so friendly and helpful. You couldnt ask for better views, we didnt want to leave. Would definitely return.

Great holiday. Can't wait to get back.

Had a fantastic time staying here for a family birthday last weekend. There was 8 adults and 1 child and there was ample room throughout. Every aspect of this property was immaculate. Kitchen was spacious and clean. Hot tub was amazing with brilliant views. The owner karen couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome. Great location for walks and pubs. Can't wait to get back next year.

Amazing cottage

Lovely welcome. Cottage has been done out to a very high spec. It was very clean on arrival. Under floor heating down stairs which was lovely. Will defiantly be recommending and going back again


Beautiful cottage. Every room was clean and to a high standard. Well worth the money. The hot tub was clean, the owner came round to top it up as well and to check the chlorine levels. It made my birthday memorable and I will defiantly be going back.... was a well thought out and decorated cottage. Loved it!!!
