  • "Excellent directions to the property at the end of a long drive up the country!"

    Easy access to Richmond and Swaledale and A1(M). Peaceful location and good parking. Great local shopping and pubs/ restaurants all within a mile's walk. Relative lack of useful cooking facilities - and no bread board.

  • "Lavender Cottage was an extremely well equipped cottage with tasteful furniture and soft furnishings."

    Good beds, sofas good to loaf on for those wet days or evenings watching television. The lighting is soft, lovely for relaxing but impossible if you are a reader. A standing up lighter is all that is needed. We all enjoyed our stay and as oldies appreciated the fact we could park next to the cottage. By chance we met the owners who were very helpful with our problem turning on the television due to our poor technology skills. Christine

    Thank you for the lovely feedback, it was lovely to meet you all, we would love you to visit again and i will make-sure there is a brighter lamp for you read. Property Owner

  • "These 4 lovely cottages set behind West End Guest House in the Reeth Road are an ideal location for exploring Richmond and the Yorkshire Dales."

    Well equipped and comfortable, they also supported our desire to explore the area without a car. The location with bus stops outside made this possible for both Upper Swaledale, and also Wensleydale via the village of Leyburn. It was an unforgettable holday and the cottages had much to do with that.

    Thank you for the lovely feedback, please do book again. Property Owner

    It was well equipped and everything worked with plenty of information. It was obviously well used and needed some refurbishment especially the bathroom. Other than that we very much enjoyed our stay.

The property

A charming stone-built end-terrace cottage, in a quiet courtyard development on the outskirts of the vibrant market town of Richmond.

This cottage offers comfortable accommodation in a tranquil setting, yet just a scenic walk from the centre of the town with all its amenities.

The cottage has an open-plan living area with a sunny aspect, leading to a patio and a further private parking and outside eating area, ideal for alfresco dining.

On the doorstep, Richmond has wonderful Georgian architecture with cobbled streets and many attractive shops and country inns.

Market day will be interesting to many, and the Norman castle has a commanding view over the picturesque River Swale.

The river and open countryside is just 10 minutes' walk.

This pretty cottage provides the perfect base for discovering the beauty of the Dales and yet it is within easy reach of York, Harrogate and the North York Moors.

Note: This property can be booked with Ref. 1053052, 1053055 and 1050331, together sleeping up to 16 people.

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.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

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.
