  • "Very comfortable cottage, ideally located for exploring Richmond and the Dales"

  • "A super little cottage in a quiet, perfect location for exploring Richmond."

    River walks and facilities all within walking distance, and the cottage was spotlessly clean and nicely furnished. Had a great week and would recommend this cottage to anyone.

    Thank you John and Heather, as you say brilliant location for exploring Richmond, we hope you’ll return. We do our own cleaning so we want to make the cottage as clean and tidy as possible. All the best Ian & Karen Clarke. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage in a great location."

    Communication had been good beforehand so we were fully informed of key arrangements etc. Everything was spotless when we arrived and lots of things which we had packed were provided. Owners had thought of everything including dog bowls and treats. The welcome pack was much appreciated and the owner even texted beforehand to ask our preferred wine which was a nice touch. All in all a very pleasant stay.

    Hi Janet, Thanks for your review, we are always looking to make our guests stay the best they have experienced in Richmond, so we added Sky Sports for those cold nights in. We hope you will return in the future. All the best for 2024. Ian & Karen. Property Owner

  • "A very cosy cottage, warm and with a welcome bottle or red, plus tea, coffee + biscs and a beautifully decorated Christmas tree."

    The cottage is in a lovely situation overlooking the Green and a very short walk to the town (uphill) and to the river and riverside walks (on the flat). Parking is on the lane/road around the Green and was very busy but we did always find a space. We were 2 friends staying, one had a very spacious double bedroom, the other a much smaller one, both comfortable. Super shower over bath and plenty of hot water. Well equipped kitchen. We enjoyed our stay and Richmond is one of the loveliest towns in north Yorkshire.

    Hi Penny, Thank you for your positive feedback, we hope you will come back in the future. We will put in a full length mirror as per your suggestion. Many thanks Karen & Ian Clarke Property Owner

  • "Lovely just absolutely lovely, the cottage was fantastic and Richmond is a great town to visit."

    Walk along the river to the Falls and Batts and enjoy the tranquil views than walk into town and grab some lunch at one of the many Pubs or cafes with great food in all we ate at. Enjoy the market on a Saturday with lots of stalls selling great produce, then back on Sunday for the Artisan Market and enjoy a Sunday lunch in the Town hall Pub (great food). The hosts of Bay Tree were great to with a couple of Texts in the week to make sure all was OK and if you needed anything. Wood for the log burner was also provided which we lit and enjoyed the warn glow of the fire. Just go yourself and enjoy a great place to stay in a lovely doggie friendly town. Mark

Park on the road outside the property and enter into a charming open-plan living space with a feature fireplace and the welcoming glow of a woodburning stove, making this space ideal for guests to relax with a coffee and plan the day ahead of them from the stylish sitting area.

When mealtimes call, cook up a storm in the contemporary kitchen and enjoy a meal at the dining table, whilst a shared rear patio with furniture is an ideal space for breakfast in the sunshine.

This property houses two well-presented bedrooms and a bathroom where guests can take a quick shower or enjoy a soak amongst the bubbles, so choose between two doubles and cosy up for the night.

Richmond is a delightful town in North Yorkshire, with the centre only a brief stroll from the property.

The town also offers a selection of attractions and exciting things to do and see, including walks beside the River Swale, Culloden Tower, Richmond Falls, St Martin’s Priory and The Station, and the option to try out a game or two at Richmond Yorks Golf Club.

Travelling over the bridge, guests can reach Billy Bank Woods, a haven for wildlife spotting and exploring, whilst Bay Tree Cottage is also an ideal stopping point for coast-to-coast walkers.

Further from the property you will find the fantastic Yorkshire Dales National Park containing a wealth of walks, mountain biking trails and bird watching opportunities.

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.
