  • "Problem with time given to check in which meant we were hanging around Richmond for an hour before we could actually get into cottage."

    Because of this we had to then cancel all our plans which we had made for the evening . Not a good start to our holiday. Cottage was very clean but needed some refreshing in parts. Felt quite damp in places . We were a party of 3 adults and 2 children and fitted in fine but not a lot of room.We were aware there was no garden but the small courtyard was very unkempt and so we didn’t use that at all. We feel it should be emphasised that it is only suitable as an alternative entrance/exit.

  • "Brilliant position on lovely little street so close to town and castle and river."

    We took out £15 parking ticket for the week so didn’t need to keep moving car around, which worked well for us. Great to have cycle storage with wonderful, if hilly !! rides all around. House spacious and comfortable but problem with shower control which was a problem for us but was reported. All credit to the cleaners as house was spotless and Covid compliant. It felt that some aspects of the house needed a bit of a refresh and upgrade but beds large and comfortable and overall we had a lovely stay in this super town with easy access to Reeth, Leyburn and even the sea if need a change from the beautiful dales.

    Wow, what a fabulous cottage. We were pleasantly surprised with how amazing this stay has been, a real home away from home. Perfect location with the market square a short walk away or the beautiful river and castle. The cottage provides peace and tranquility and is the ultimate stay for relaxation. Although this was not a holiday for us, we will definitely be coming to stay again especially with such wonderful hosts

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Richmond, in this quaint wee cottage."

    It was so handy for walking to the town which is a lovely place. The parking can be a bit tricky at times but we managed to deal with it. Richmond is lovely and has all your shopping needs right at hand. For coffee we recommend Mocha on the Market Place. The pies from the Noted Pie Shop lived up to their reputation too! We had the most delicious Sunday roast beef lunch in The Fleece and highly recommend going there, even for a drink. We also ate in La Piazza Italian restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed it. If you enjoy walking please try some of the recommended walks as they are lovely. The gentleman in the Tourist Information office was extremely helpful giving us advise etc. Also pay a visit to The Station , it’s amazing! We had ice cream there, coffee, shopped in the gift shop and even saw a film in the cinema! All excellent! Also explore the towns and villages round about, they are all so lovely. The cottage itself was excellent. Everything you need and very quiet as it is down a gorgeous wee cobbled street with no traffic. In one minute you’re at the castle and the Market Place. All in all a very enjoyable holiday. Thank you

    The cottage was cosy, warm and clean. Everything had been thought about to make it a home from home. Lots of fluffy white towels, toilet paper, dishwasher tablets, tea, coffee, sugar and biscuits. A lovely touch was finding a pint of milk in the fridge. We loved how close it was to all amenities in Richmond, located on a quiet little street just tucked away from the busy market square.

    We really enjoyed our stay and find the cottage so cosy with everything we need for an enjoyable holiday. It's location is perfect and although it's just off the market place there is very little noise on a night. The cottage is clean and tidy with all the mod cons. Will definitely consider this cottage the next time we come to Richmond.

    The pictures are an accurate representation. The details we received both before the holiday started and the in house information pack on arrival were accurate and easy to follow. It has a lovely fully equipped kitchen, although we made use of the many restaurants and takeaways during our stay! Everything was clean and comfy and we would strongly recommend this centrally located holiday cottage.

  • "Had a lovely break and were so pleased to find this cottage was available last minute - when we arrived we all agreed it was actually better than we had expected it to be!"

    It’s a large space and was spotlessly clean. Everything inside is such good quality including the beds and towels etc - so comfortable we didn’t want to leave!! The location is perfect for the town and surrounding area, car parking is just near the castle up the road or in the market square a few minutes away. We went to the Mocha coffee shop in the square and thought the coffee and chocolates were amazing. We also loved the antique shop down the road from the Mocha coffee shop, there is also an award winning garden to visit just around the corner which is certainly worth the trip. It’s called Millgate House and is simply stunning. Would recommend Alessandro’s Sicillian for a meal out (amazing steak) and a trip to the nearby waterfalls at Aysgarth is worth the 20 min car journey. All in all, a very special place and the perfect holiday cottage to see it from.

    A beautiful cottage in a very peaceful yet central area of Richmond. We've not stayed in, or been to Richmond before - but we will certainly be returning, and hopefully staying in the same cottage. Wife, children and the dog all loved it. Only thing to highlight is that there isn't dedicated parking - it wasn't a problem, but thought it worth noting.

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.
