Externally the cottage is lucky to have wonderful views from the terraced garden across the farmland to Harkerside. In the garden there is a bench, offering a perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee listening to the local birdsong which is beautiful in the spring and summer months. Further up on the patio area is table and chairs to enjoy dining alfresco. There is secure bike storage and parking for one car on the gravelled drive, with further roadside parking available. Please note there are steps within the garden and to access the cottage – 9 steps to the front door, 4 further steps within the garden to access the patio at the top of the terraced area.

This rural escape in Fremington is a great choice of holiday destination for the outdoor enthusiast. A D Barn is based at the foot of Fremington Edge, with long distance walks accessible from the door including the Pennine Way and the Coast to Coast. There are also some lower-level walks along the River Swale or simply to the neighbouring villages. The area is renowned for both road cycling and mountain biking. The 2014 Tour de France route and the Tour de Yorkshire routes both passed directly past A D Barn, and the largest Enduro Mountain Bike event is held annually in Fremington. If road cycling is your thing, there are loads of routes to choose from, but a favourite is the 28 mile loop to The Tan Hill Inn, the highest pub in England. Or, if it is a short blast out you are after, attempt the route known locally as The Triangle of Death, a challenging but short ride! The Dales Bike Centre is opposite the cottage, offering bike hire including road, mountain, and electric bikes. They have a wealth of knowledge and will happily guide you to a trail that suits your abilities. Locally there are loads of bridleways and the Swale Trail which is a trail made suitable for families and those new to off road cycling, wheelchairs, and prams. The Swale Trail is accessed from Grinton, about 1 mile from A D Barn. The Swale Trail is great as it gives you access to a 12-mile route to Keld which is 70% off road.

Only a short walk from A D Barn is Reeth. This popular village surrounding a beautiful green which is surrounded by fells and amenities including 3 pubs, cafes, an ice cream parlour, 2 bakeries, gift shops, Dales Art Centre, post office and village store. In the opposite direction, and an even shorter stroll, is Grinton with a popular pub serving real pub grub, fine wines, and real ales. Opposite at the Dales Bike Centre, there is a fantastic café, serving great full English breakfasts, huge jacket potatoes, scrumptious cakes, and a range of tasty pizzas!

Slightly further afield is the market town of Richmond. Here you will find a Georgian Theatre, Richmond Castle, Easby Abbey a selection of shops and eateries. There is also the Station home to a cinema, deli, artisan bakery, ice cream parlour and microbrewery amongst other things. Leyburn is also worth a visit, with a fantastic weekly market, chocolate factory, lots of eateries and The Shawl, a famous walk leading to the impressive Bolton Castle. Hawes is a good day out. Take the scenic route through the Swaledale valley over the Buttertubs which drops down into Hardraw. A stunning drive made better by the abundance of amenities in Hawes including several cafes, pubs, and a brilliant fish and chip shop. Hawes is also home to The Wensleydale Cheese Factory, the Dales Countryside Museum, and Hardraw Force and Semer Water, which is the second largest natural lake within North Yorkshire.

Richmond was founded by the Normans in 1071, and is overflowing with history, mostly centred around one of the finest tourist attractions in North Yorkshire – Richmond Castle. The castle, finished in 1086, is one of the greatest Norman fortresses in the UK and well worth a visit, not only to hear the history of the unruly North but to see the stunning views of the Dales from the castle keep and the tranquil Cockpit garden. ...

  1. Jane

    We were looking for a house to relax and get away from the hectic months we’d had. The house, beautiful scenery and local villages with pubs and a few shops meant it was perfect. We hired bicycles and followed the Swalesdale Trail, walked locally and further afield and visited Barnards Castle. As soon as we arrived we felt relaxed and our minds took a well earned rest. It is the first time we have used Airbnb, it worked very well. All the information we required was received beforehand and within the house the book covered all we needed and Hannah was in contact if required. Thank you, we would be happy to revisit.

  2. Jon

    Perfect place to stay. Would definitely return again

  3. Tara

    We have just returned from a wonderful stay at AD Barn and couldn’t have wished for more from this beautiful property. The cottage itself was incredibly homely and cosy, whilst also spacious. It was perfectly clean, with pristine bedding and towels. We had everything we needed for our 5 night stay; a fully equipped kitchen, logs for the fire, and some lovely food and drink supplies kindly left for us. The surrounding area is beautiful, with many local spots walkable and accessible. We are already hoping to return to AD Barn and would certainly recommend it to others considering staying there. Many thanks to Hannah for great hosting, she was proactive, friendly and helpful throughout.

  4. Matthew
