About the location

HUDSWELL

Richmond 2 miles.

Hudswell is a small ribbon village sitting on top of the valley above the River Swale, located just two miles from its better-known neighbour of Richmond in Swaledale. Set in delightful rolling countryside, the village boasts a mixture of lovely old houses, and a most interesting local pub, the George and Dragon. Like many village pubs, it recently fell on difficult times, so the villagers clubbed together and now run it as a 'Community Pub Initiative'. The ancient market town of Richmond stands to the north of the River Swale. Its cobbled streets and narrow alleys embody nine centuries of history and unique character. The town grew up around its castle. Today there are wonderful walks to be enjoyed by the castle or alongside the River Swale where there are parks, safe paddling areas and small waterfalls. 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.
