    • “The cottage was fantastic.It was clean, and the owners had even left tea,coffee and milk, which I thought was a lovely touch. The photos are exactly as the cottage, not misleading in any way. It was quiet, which is what we were after and close enough to Richmond centre to have a little walk up. There was even a washer and dryer. The owners were fantastic when I rang up for details, so an all round brilliant service.”

    • “Foxglove cottage was well equipped for a family of four. Spotlessly clean and nobody else's "leftovers" in the kitchen cupboards. Warm and cosy, small but spacious, Owner often around and about to sort things out (pipes froze due to extreme temperatures at xmas) Tastefully decorated with xmas tree etc. Lovely lights in the gardens”

    • “Nice little cottage”

    • “This cottage is situated within easy walking distance of the town centre and there is ample parking space to leave your car. The cottage is quite small but is very clean and well furnished and equipped. The only thing we would have liked which was not provided was a hairdryer. There were books and games for entertainment and a few DVDs. We didn't take any towels with us so had to go and buy some but tea towels and a bathmat were provided. Outside there was a garden table and chairs although the weather was not good enough for us to use them during our stay. I would definitely recommend this cottage.”

About the location


Barnard Castle 10 miles; Leyburn 12 miles.

Situated at the entrance to Swaledale, the ancient market town of Richmond stands on a prominent hilltop site to the north of the River Swale. Its cobbled streets and narrow alleys or 'wynds' enshrine over nine centuries of busy history and unique character. The town grew up around its castle, a Norman fortress dating back to 1071, famously situated high above the river - indeed the name Richmond is derived from 'Riche-mont' meaning 'strong hill'. 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 town flourished in the 18th and 19th centuries and the resulting elegant Georgian architecture lines many of the old streets. The Georgian Theatre is one of the oldest surviving theatres in the country with visitors enjoying its regular productions all year round.
