About Belinda Bartle
Barolin Farm is the family home in which I grew up. I am the youngest of the Bartle family, renowned for their fame and success in the horse world. It adjoins the Yorkshire Riding Centre, which my mother founded in 1962. We enjoyed a wonderful and eccentric childhood here, wondering about the extensive grounds and riding constantly. Guests at Barolin Farm, are welcome to visit the horses and watch lessons taking place. Now my two daughters have grown up and fled the nest, and after a very successful stay at new years by a group of friends, we have now decided to make it available for groups to rent out. We receive plaudits for it's unique charm, comfort and suitability.
Belinda Bartle purchased this country house / chateau in 1950
Why Belinda Bartle chose Markington
Barolin Farm was originally part of the Wilberforce estate built in the late 18th century, and it is very much a country house set in beautiful Yorkshire countryside between Harrogate and Ripon. It is in a great situation for a rural retreat, surrounded by rolling Yorkshire countryside, half a mile outside the sleepy village of Markington. Its perfectly located for access to Yorkshire's most popular tourist destinations; two miles from the great heritage site Fountains Abbey and six miles from Newby Hall.
What makes this country house / chateau unique
Barolin Farm has 8 spacious bedrooms, sleeping 17 all en suite. The large farmhouse kitchen with an Aga is very much the heart of the house. Adjoining the kitchen is a snug area with solid fuel stove. The large drawing room with log fire and the dining room make entertaining in this house a real occasion. So there is plenty of room for large groups and all generations to enjoy. The one acre walled garden on the South side of the house and the courtyard on the North provides ample traffic free safe space for children to let off steam. There is also a tennis court to play in.
