  • “Absolutely loved this cottage!”
    We have just returned from a week at this beautiful cottage and had a fantastic time ...
    We have just returned from a week at this beautiful cottage and had a fantastic time. The cottage is very comfortable, very clean with beautiful decor and soft furnishings. The beds were very comfortable and all of the rooms were spacious. We all slept so well during our stay. Sarah provided us with a very welcome 'welcome' pack including a cake, butter, milk, eggs and smoked salmon. Perfect! The cottage had everything you could want, very well equipped kitchen, cosy blankets, and 2 wifi hubs to ensure we had wifi in every part of the cottage, due to the thick walls. The wifi was fast. We took our Nintendo wiiU as we weren't sure what the weather was going to be like and we managed to set our kids up (8 and 5 years old) with our Netflix account which they watched through the wiiU. The TVs had freeview so Netflix wasn't important but was a back up in case of bad weather! We were very lucky with the weather and this cottage is extremely well placed for exploring Richmond by foot. We only used the car twice. The river water falls are approximately 3 minutes walk away, the market place is approx 5 mins walk (up a steep hill), the castle is 5 mins walk and there is a fabulous pub called the holly hill inn which is less than 10 mins away. This serves the best Sunday roast we have had in a long time and we went back on our final night and enjoyed the food just as much. This pub is over the river bridge and up a steep hill headed out of Richmond. Our kids loved the river, they took nets and got into the water each time we visited (which was a lot, but luckily close enough to the cottage to walk back with wet clothes!) Don't let the parking issue put you off. Throughout the whole week we were there we saw plenty of parking space available around the green. Even though we didn't use the car much, it was nice to be reassured that we didn't need to worry about the parking. Sarah gave us a parking disc for the north yourkshire area which was also handy. We visited the forbidden corner and Thorpe Perrow whilst we were there and can highly recommend both, all within 30 mins drive. All in all a fantastic cottage (loved the separate snug area / 2nd reception room) in the best location within Richmond. We will definitely return!

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.
