Cobblers Barn is a wonderful stone-built, detached cottage situated on the edge of the hamlet of Mickleton, close to both Middleton-in-Teesdale and Barnard Castle in Teesdale. Set over three floors, this cottage sleeps ten people in four bedrooms, including two zip/link super king-size double with en-suite (one on ground floor), one twin and one family room with a double and two single beds, as well as a separate bathroom. The cottage also has a lower ground floor kitchen, a dining room and a sitting room with woodburner.

Outside, there's off road parking for five cars and a courtyard garden with hot tub, patio, furniture and barbecue. Cobblers Barn offers quality accommodation for families and groups of friends.


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
