Barden, Leyburn

Guide price

Bedrooms: 3
An attractive, stone-built character property situated in the accessible hamlet of Barden with the added benefit of a self-contained cottage, currently used as a holiday let, along with a two-storey barn with planning permission for conversion.

Situation and Amenities

The rural hamlet of Barden is situated approximately 4 miles from Leyburn and 5 miles from Richmond. Both market towns offer a wide variety of amenities including many excellent local and artisan shops, a weekly outdoor market, filling station, dentist, primary and secondary schools and a sixth form colleges. Leyburn is also home to one of the largest auctioneer houses in the UK, Tennants, on the eastern outskirts of the town.

The area benefits hugely from tourism, being situated on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and has good communications and easy access from the A1 at Catterick (9 miles approximately). The nearest train station is at Northallerton (about 18 miles) with a regular service on the east coast main line to York, Newcastle, London or Edinburgh. Leeds Bradford is the nearest international airport but there are an increasing number of services now being offered from Durham Teesside airport.

Old Malt Kiln House

The entrance porch leads into the dining kitchen which has Terracotta tiled flooring, an alcove housing the electric Aga, a Belfast sink and a range of high-quality, free-standing solid wood units including a dresser. There is ample room for a dining table and access to an additional preparation kitchen with extra units, space for free-standing white goods and a sink.

The sitting room benefits from a multi-fuel stove with stone surround whilst the rear porch, which gives access to the ground floor shower room, has a glass roof and windows overlooking the garden.

From the sitting room, a staircase leads up to the first floor landing, which leads into the spacious principal bedroom as well as the house bathroom and a further single bedroom. To the second floor, there are two attic rooms, currently used as double bedrooms, both with Velux windows. One of these also has a range of fitted wardrobes and a quaint feature window.

Rose Cottage

The cottage's entrance porch leads into the living room which enjoys a feature fireplace and a window overlooking the front garden. There is access through to the kitchen, which has a range of units and free-standing white goods as well as a useful storage cupboard. There is a double bedroom with fitted storage and a spacious bathroom with P-shaped bath and shower above.


The property is approached via wrought-iron gates and a pathway leading up to the two properties. There are well-stocked flower beds and borders, ample space for seating and areas of lawn to both the front and rear.

There is a detached, two storey, stone-built barn with light and power connected and an external stone staircase, which we understand has planning permission to be converted into a one-bedroom cottage. The planning permission was granted several years ago, however we understand works have commenced in order to retain granted status. There are also two additional stone-built stores.
