    “Beautiful Cottage in a lovely town”

    Beautifully furnished with everything you could want for a comfortable stay. The kitchen was large with all the amenities, and the cosy living room had a very easy to use log burner. The two bedrooms are large and the beds are extremely comfortable, and decorated in soft shades to help you to relax.

    Beautifully furnished with everything you could want for a comfortable stay. The kitchen was large with all the amenities, and the cosy living room had a very easy to use log burner. The two bedrooms are large and the beds are extremely comfortable, and decorated in soft shades to help you to relax. As for the bathroom, it is modern, ligh,t and has a separate bath and shower, and the underfloor heating makes it comfortable to walk on the stone tiles. Just short of a shaving mirror. There is also a downstairs loo. Outside, there is a quaint sitting area, “underneath the arch”, with outdoor table and chairs, lighting and a chimea. There was some noise which seemed to come from above the back bedroom, the cottage is attached to what appears to be a large building, and there was sometimes the sound of furniture or something being dragged across the floor, and someone singing! This happened through the day, and on a couple of occasions, very early in the morning, one time at around 5am. There is lots to do in the area, Richmond Castle for one, only open at the weekends at the moment, until February, the Green Howard Museum, lots of restaurants too. We ate at Rustique, wonderful, Alessandro’s also wonderful, but very quiet, I think due to it being around bonfire night, people were elsewhere, and at The Taj Mahal, which is not the prettiest of restaurants, but the food was wonderful. Overall, I would recommend No. 2 The Bar, and we hope to return ourselves.

The property

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.

With Swaledale and the Yorkshire Dales on the doorstep, this cottage makes for a superb holiday base in an enchanting location, all year round.

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.
