Paddock Barn Family Cottage description

Holiday home
Paddock Barn is a single storey, detached barn conversion opposite a dairy farm within the rural village of Hilton, 1 mile from Ingleton in Teesdale. Boasting two twin bedrooms and one double with ensuite facilities as well as a family bathroom, this cottage sleeps up to six people. The rest of the cottage is made up of a fitted kitchen with a dining area and a sitting room with a woodburning stove. Outside the cottage is a garage containing a games room, off road parking for four cars and a large enclosed front garden. Perfect for families or for a group of friends who wish to explore the northern Dales, Paddock Barn provides a great holiday for everyone.

The Yorkshire Dales village of Ingleton is situated at the junction of two rivers and is notable for its natural beauty. There are waterfalls and walks in the area, plus the area is perfect for day trips to places of historical interest and natural attractions, such as the White Scar Caves and the Ribblehead Viaduct. A brilliant day can be had by travelling along the Settle to Carlisle Railway. Nine miles away is the wonderful Barnard Castle, and within driving distance are Bowes Museum, Raby Castle, and the towns of Middleton in Teesdale and Richmond. Ingleton is an ideal base for exploring this part of the country.

From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?

A home from home with nice finishing touches and a well-equipped kitchen; we didn't want for anything.
Mrs Featherstone
March 2016
When we arrived to spend the Christmas period at Paddock Barn, the wind was strong and the weather was very cold indeed. When we opened the door, we not only stepped into a beautifully decorated home but it was warm and welcoming. To top it all, there was a large Christmas tree and other decorations. We all had a wonderful Christmas.
Mr Walker

One of the nicest cottages we've stayed in, plenty of space for the children to run around, great play room and the accommodation was finished to a very high standard. The children are already nagging at us to go back! There were plenty of activities and days out within a short drive.The heating and log stove were both very effective. I would highly recommend the cottage and the area.
Mrs Thompson

Paddock Barn was a real home from home! The standard, quality and facilities were second to none. Already trying to fit in another trip back to Paddock Barn for 2015
Mr Breed
September 2014
We had a fantastic time, the Barn became a home from home with all the things you expect and some you don't such as the sheer size. One of the best aspects was being able to sit and enjoy an early morning coffee whilst looking at the views from the kitchen.
Mrs Smith
May 2015
The property was far superior than we expected and was converted to a very high standard. The property was extremely spacious with an abundance of hot water and the heating was on when we arrived. There was plenty of information on the surrounding area and all conveniences e.g. places to eat and supermarkets were within easy reach.
Mrs Smith
October 2014
An excellent place to stay, in beautiful quiet surroundings. Paddock Barn was clean well equipped and the games room was excellent. We are saving up for future visits and wouldn't dream of going anywhere else now we have found this holiday property.
Mrs Roberts
September 2014
A beautiful property and surroundings in a very lovely village. Friendly locals and wonderful areas to visit all made for a fantastic weeks break. The surrounding countryside to our property was stunning and very peaceful. Definitely a great place for a rest or for a family with children, a great place to let them run free! The sheep in the fields were very cheeky!
Mr Penman

This cottage was by far the best cottage we have been in! It had every little thing you would need for a good stay. The welcome basket was a lovely surprise. It was nice and quiet and you could go for a walk from your doorstep. I would recommend this cottage to anyone who wants to walk and be close to all amenities.
Mrs Woodthorpe

We had a great weekend and the cottage was much better than we had hoped for. A great space to get away and catch up with friends.
Ms Ridgley

Paddock Barn was just perfect for our Christmas stay in the North East; very comfortable, spacious and well equipped. We would definitely consider another visit to the property.
Mrs De Witt
August 2014
The cottage was everything that we read in the description and more. It was for instance a lot bigger than we had imagined. The cottage was warm and welcoming.
Mrs Coburn
July 2014
Paddock barn was one of the best cottages we have stayed in. 10 out of 10. A home from home that accommodated all the family. The owners had thought of everything. Set in a lovely quiet road with just a few houses. It was our first visit to the area and we hadn't realised how lovely it was. Lots to do and places to visit. Good walking area too. Have no problem in recommending Paddock Barn to our family and friends. First class.
Ms Barker

Excellent standard of property at the Paddock Barn, finished to a high standard indoors. The cows and sheep in the next garden made our stay - they were a lovely surprise. The kids loved them. The games room was very popular too!

This is a lovely home and getaway. It's an easy drive into Darlington (when it's not snowing!) to get necessities. The opportunities for walking or chilling out with some good food and wine make for a nice relaxed break.
Mrs Parkin

Paddock Barn was excellent. Welcome pack brilliant. Clean and welcoming. A home from home. A great choice for visiting the area and surrounding areas such as Durham, the Lakes, Angel of the North, Beamish, Yorkshire etc. Would recommend it and intend to go back. 5* all the way.
Mrs Evans
April 2011
This is an outstanding property which has 5 star features. There is ample space for a family and the garden is excellent for children. The welcome basket was divine. Everywhere was so clean. There are lots of places of interest to visit nearby without having to drive for miles. As I wrote in the guest book....simply perfect.
Mrs Riley

Quiet relaxing location - high quality decor and furnishings. Beautiful breakfast/kitchen - excellent equipment.
Mr Barrett
January 2011
The property was spacious and comfortable with an excellent games room. It was well located in a quiet rural hamlet, but close enough to larger towns. Well equipped on the whole and very pleasant. Good first impressions.
Mr K J Sparrow
September 2012
Magnifique!Most excellent barn conversion and with good neighbours which are farm animals! Raby Castle can be seen and good walks to pub / restaurants. Excellent well maintained front lawn where children play various games provided.
June 2013
Unfortunately due to my hesitation in booking this property I could only book for one week instead of two. I was worried that if we did not like the property two weeks is a long time. From the photos I thought the house was on a main road it's not, the road has very little traffic mainly neighbors cars only. It is in Hilton a tiny little village and we drove past the turning a few times. Walking into the cottage we were immediately impressed it was almost like we were the first to stay there. It is large and modern. Cleaned to a high standard. The double bed in master bedroom was comfortable which I have to say is very unusual, I normally have to go out and buy a foam pad. I regularly rent houses in the north of England and this is the best I've experienced. The area is very quiet, the only noises are from the farm animals. Did not hear neighbors. Tesco's and Sainsburys about 5 miles away. No free wifi nil available. If you have any questions feel free to ask.
September 2012
We can highly recommend this cottage and it's lovely location. It was great to receive a hamper on arrival, just what we needed after a long drive. The cottage had everything you could possibly need and so clean...wonderful. We have stayed in many holiday homes but this was one of the best. Lots of info of where to go and what to do

Well placed to explore the surrounding area, with the comfort and facilites of home. Modern and clean, with a games room which added some extra fun.
October 2011
Excellent accommodation, loved the kitchen dining area. Extremely well presented interior and in a fantastic location, our 1 year old loved seeing the cows next door.
February 2011
What a lovely place. We had all the comforts that we needed and more. We were partly snowed in during the time that we were there but we were able to relax and unwind, including spending time with our daughter and her family. The locals, including the owners, were lovely and made us feel welcome. We would definitely like to return in warmer times in order to walk some of the paths in the area.
November 2010
