  • "Perfect cottage."

    Very clean. There was everything we could need there. Loved the boot tray for muddy boots and a dog towel. Perfect location for travelling, space for parking on site. Gentle walk into Richmond, plenty of nature walks too.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay in a lovely area of Richmond."

    It took only 10 minutes to walk into town so didn’t need to take the car. There was plenty of parking at the cottage. There were tea, coffee, sugar & milk to use which was good as we had forgotten to take any with us. We would definitely stay there again

  • "This was our 2nd stay at one of these four delightful cottages."

    This time we stayed at Foxglove and found the cottage similar in layout and beautifully clean when entering. We had our dog Charlie with us and he loved the river walks near by. The only thing with this cottage I found the settee and chair not as comfy as the seating in Honeysuckle which is one of the other four. That said still an amazing cottage. Thanks to the owner and her wonderful lady who keeps the cottages sparkling clean.

    Thank you for the lovely feedback, we hope to see you again soon. Property Owner

    Comfortable, clean and warm. The kitchen has all the essentials you need for self catering. Laundry room located close by. No timer on the cooker so a clock would be useful but otherwise we've had a fab stay and have recommended to family &friends already. Thanks!

    Beautiful place and very dog friendly. The only slight problem we had was the sofa and chair in living room. I have Parkinsons and a bad back. I really struggled to get up and down on them. Otherwise thoroughly enjoyable few days.

  • "On arrival the cottage smelled of dampness and wasnt very pleasant."

    The decor looked very tired and requires freshening up. The TV was very small and difficult to watch. The sofa was very low, past it's best and needs to be replaced. The carpet in the sitting area requires to be cleaned. Loved the area but would seek alternative accomodation next time.

    Thank you for your feedback. I am the new owner of the cottage and agree it needed doing up. The cottage has since had a full redecoration, new carpets and new furniture. I’m sure all future guests will be happy with the results. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was old and in need of some updating,dark we had to have the lights on all of the time, very small the outside area was just a walk through for the other cottages and it was not a walk away from Richmond Town you needed to drive a short way very miss leading not the holiday we wanted very disappointed."


    I'm sorry the visit failed to meet your expectations, we strive to make every visit enjoyable for every guest, we will take on board everything you have said, however I think it's fair to point out, as you said in our conversation you would normally book 5* luxury accommodation, our lovely cottages are 3* and fully equipped with every possible thing you could need, we go the extra mile to ensure the cottages are cleaned from top to bottom after every single guest, please see previous feedback from other satisfied guests. Only 1 other cottage can walk past I'm sorry this was too much for you. The town centre is 0.6 of a mile we believe this is a short walk, as you explained due to your health issues you struggled with the walk. My team worked hard to accommodate all your requests.

    Everything was very good just one small niggle the lack of privacy when you wanted to sit out with your morning cuppa maybe trellising to divide the small patios so you get a little privacy

    Thank you for your lovely feedback. The patio area is open plan, I will consider your suggestion of trellising in the future. Property Owner

  • "In general the facilities were perfectly adequate, my granddaughter and I had a lovely stay, as did my dog, Fen."

    It would be useful to have one cupboard in the kitchen left empty for guests to put their own food and I have suggested that a rubber mat is available for the bath. Being able to put all rubbish in one bin was a bonus! Guests need to be aware that the outside space is small - if you have a dog with you you'll need to take a short walk morning and evening! This cottage is very well situated to explore the Dales. Certainly we would recommend a visit to Easby Abbey and Round Howe - a lovely National Trust area just a short ride from the cottage.

Discover Richmond's cobbled streets and architecture, featuring an array of superb inns and restaurants and several intriguing museums.

Explore the fascinating Norman castle, peruse the colourful stalls at the weekly market, or take a leisurely stroll along the picturesque River Swale.

A superb base for exploring Swaledale, the Yorkshire Dales National Park, York Minster and the North York Moors, making this the ideal location for touring the North of England.

Richmond Cottages

Discover this set of four stone-built terraced cottages nestled within a quiet courtyard development, situated on the outskirts of the market town of Richmond. The cottages together sleep up to 16 guests making it a wonderful find for large groups of friends, families, walkers, cyclists and those alike to explore this exciting part of the country, acting as the gateway to the dramatic landscape of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. All four cottages share an identical layout, comprising spacious open-plan living rooms, sleek family bathrooms, elegantly-presented double bedrooms and twin bedrooms, as well as a patio area and parking spots to the exterior. If you and your loved ones can tear yourself away from this truly charming spot, look forward to a gentle stroll into the centre of Richmond, which is regarded as the jewel in the heart of North Yorkshire and a place of breathtaking beauty, inspiring painters and poets from past and present; this is easy to see why as you meander down the cobbled streets lined with plenty of places to eat and drink or walk along the endearing River Swale. Whilst here, be sure to delve into the town’s past by taking a walk around the remains of Richmond Castle, which still dominates the town today or discover the beautiful Georgian architecture before visiting the plethora of museums and monuments in town. Continuing to impress, the town’s old railway station has been transformed into a delightful community enterprise and today plays host to a number of opportunities; catch an old classic at the cinema, sample Archer’s Jersey Ice Cream, pick up a sweet treat from Angel’s Share Bakery or indulge with a beverage from the Richmond Brewing Company. Alternatively, use your time at the Richmond Cottages to explore the unique labyrinth of tunnels and follies within the Forbidden Corner, a four acre garden located in the Tupgill Park Estate or travel slightly further afield to find Easby Abbey, one of the best-preserved monasteries in the UK. Those feeling more adventurous, begin your escapade to the Yorkshire Dales by stopping off at Wensleydale Creamery to sample some of the finest cheeses before heading north to Hardraw Force, a 100-foot, single-drop waterfall, said to be the highest in England. Moreover, the National Park boasts a magnitude of routes amidst stunning landscapes, which can be enjoyed on two-wheels or on foot. With so much to see and do, bring your loved ones to share an action-packed break to this part of Yorkshire.

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.
