    “This is a lovely, well equipped and comfortable dog friendly cottage with a sunny enclosed courtyard located in a welcoming village on the doorstep of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.”

    Richmond town centre is just a 15 minute drive away and there are two great pubs within a five minute walk of the house. It’s an excellent base as the village is located just off the A1 and there are plenty of long walks, activities and places to visit and spectacular countryside and seaside to explore.

The property

Richmond 3.1 miles.

Situated in the quaint village of Gilling West with easy links to the town of Richmond and Scotch Corner, is Lavender Cottage, a charming Grade II listed mid-terrace cottage, providing inviting accommodation for a couple or small family looking to explore North Yorkshire and the nearby Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Parking is available on the roadside just in front of the property; once parked up, make your way inside and kick off your shoes and hang your coats in the boot room, before making your way into the main living space, beginning with a welcoming sitting room, the focal point of which is an exposed stone inglenook housing an open fire, which fills the space with warmth as you kick back on the plush sofas and enjoy a movie night or a great book.

The separate dining room is the ideal space to sit down for meals together, which can be prepared in the delightful renovated kitchen, boasting pale pink and white hues, a window overlooking the garden, and a range of appliances to help you cook up a storm, there's even a wine cooler where you can chill a bottle of fizz, ready to toast to your wonderful holiday.

Make your way upstairs to discover two lovingly decorated bedrooms; a spacious master double with a full length window that overlooks the village, as well as an en-suite bathroom, where you can end the day with a relaxing soak in the bath tub, while the twin bedroom would be ideal for children and is served by the shower room, meaning no queues for the bathroom in the mornings!

Make yourself a morning coffee and venture into the enclosed garden, where you can grab a seat and enjoy the peaceful morning sunshine.

Gilling West boasts two village pubs, one of which is opposite the cottage, ideal for when you fancy a night off from cooking or to simply enjoy a refreshing beverage at the end of a busy day of exploring.

Head to the market town of Richmond and explore its ancient cobbled streets and narrow alleys, stopping off for a coffee and admiring the views of Culloden Tower and the rolling countryside of the Yorkshire Dales.

Find a host of shops, supermarkets, pubs, bars and restaurants, as well as a lively market place, which plays host to a weekly market and monthly farmers’ market.

Richmond's commanding Norman castle, which stands in an elevated locating, overlooking the River Swale, is a must visit, while amazing afternoon walks can be enjoyed beneath the castle walls and beside the river.

The surrounding villages of Middleham, Leyburn and Downholme offer a picturesque backdrop for an afternoon of exploring, while Wensleydale rests within the Yorkshire Dales National Park and is the home of Wensleydale Creamery, boasting an array of local cheeses, and attractions such as Hardraw Force, a magnificent 100ft waterfall, and Forbidden Corner.

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.
