The property

Luttrell House is a former officer’s barracks built in 1875 as part of the Cardwell Reforms which encouraged the localisation of British military forces.

A semi-detached premier holiday home with a hot tub, situated in the Garden Village area of Richmond within a short walk from the centre of this ever popular market town.

Individually styled and furnished, the house provides spacious accommodation, perfect for a large family or group of friends to get away and enjoy the many delights of this lovely old town and the beautiful Swaledale countryside.

A unique property, steeped in history with rooms that once housed the Militia, the Paymaster and the Guardroom.

Guests will feel the character of this cottage the minute you arrive with a beautiful staircase with curved balustrade and the rest of the journey through this holiday home is equally impressive.

Attention to detail and great styling in every room.

The spacious sitting room has a wonderful open fire, stylish leather Chesterfield suites, a 50” Smart TV and provides a great space to relax and chat amongst friends and family.

The well-equipped kitchen is well laid out with plenty of food preparation areas and the added benefit of a cooling pantry, useful utility area and ground floor cloakroom.

The main dining area benefits from a cosy woodburning stove and provides a great space for a lovely evening meal.

About the location

RICHMOND

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.
