    “Hidden Gem”
    Took this for a last minute short break, so a bit pot luck. The location is excellent being so close to the nearby road networks and Scotch Corner, so you can drop down into the Yorkshire Dales, go across to North Yorkshire or up into the Tees Valley. The village is a real hidden gem, with 2 excellent pubs and a lovely village shop, large church and pleasant walks round the village itself. The house is very pretty and very nicely laid out, with great heating and stove, lovely to come home to on ...

About the location


Richmond 3 miles; Barnard Castle 11 miles.

The attractive and peaceful Dales village of Gilling West, winner of the "Yorkshire in Bloom" award, is situated in lovely rolling countryside just a few miles to the north of the popular market town of Richmond. The village itself has a lovely old church, two real ale pubs both serving food. There are footpaths and bridleways in every direction and fishing is available nearby. Nearby Richmond grew up around its castle, famously situated high above the River Swale, with panoramic views of the river. Today there are wonderful walks to be enjoyed such as the Castle Walk - a dramatic terrace walk beneath the castle walls - or alternatively walk alongside the River Swale where there are parks, safe paddling areas and small waterfalls to enjoy. Within the town, narrow streets and alleys radiate from the cobbled Market Place (which has a weekly market and monthly farmers’ market) and there are numerous shops, pubs and restaurants to enjoy. The Georgian Theatre is one of the oldest surviving theatres in the country with visitors enjoying its regular productions all year round. An ideal location for exploring all of Swaledale, Teesdale and the Yorkshire Dales.
