    “Fantastic cottage in a superb location”
    We had a wonderful weeks' stay in this lovely cottage. It is in an ideal location - just off of the market square, so close to all the shops, pubs, restaurants etc., yet in a very quiet spot. The cottage itself is very spacious and very well equipped - the kitchen had every possible modern appliance, and the TVs with built in You Tube were very popular and helped us plan our walk from Muker to Keld! Not sure how long the cottage has been a holiday rental, but it felt like we were the first ...

Not sure how long the cottage has been a holiday rental, but it felt like we were the first people to stay here. We travelled to Richmond by train/bus, so can't comment on the parking issues which some visitors seem to have raised (the owner does make visitors aware of this). We were able to travel to all the places on our 'to-do' list by bus - including Muker (from where we did the circular walk to Keld and back to Muker), Middleham Castle, Jervaulx Abbey and Barnard Castle)

A delightful end-terrace stone-built cottage in the popular Yorkshire Dales market town of Richmond.

The cottage enjoys an enviable location, just off the main street, down an enchanting cobbled street, a stone’s throw from the historic castle ruins, making it a great place for a family holiday or get-together with a small group of friends.

Full of character throughout, the cottage has been tastefully renovated to provide modern comfort whilst retaining the charm of the traditional building.

You enter into the spacious sitting room with plenty of comfy sofas and a welcoming woodburner, making it a great place to relax after a full day out and about exploring the area.

There is a well-equipped kitchen with a large dining table; a great social space to enjoy some home-cooked meals.

There are two well-presented bedrooms upstairs which have all been furnished to a high standard with a family bathroom also.

To the outside is a large patio garden with a lovely seating area to enjoy some alfresco dining or a relax with something chilled.

A short walk takes guests into the lovely old town centre with a huge cobbled town square surrounded by shops, pubs, cafes, tearooms and restaurants.

There are weekly markets as well as a monthly farmers’ market held in the market square.

Richmond is also well known for its fascinating Norman castle, where walks along the castle walls and down to the River Swale can be enjoyed.

Nearby you will find popular towns and villages such as Reeth, Middleham and Hawes among the stunning local countryside, providing glorious places to head to for a refreshing drink and bite to eat after an enjoyable walk.

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.
