  • "The garden isn’t enclosed as specified, it is a court yard shared with other properties who often leave the gate open."

    Not safe when you have dogs. The owners also ask that you don’t let your dogs wee or poo outside the property which again is in practical as you can’t walk your dogs every time they need the toilet. An outside tap would be of benefit to wash muddy boots and dogs

  • "It was not possible to get a terrestrial signal on the tv and while this was not a problem for us, it may be for someone else."

    Castle View is an ideal holiday cottage for adults but would probably not be suitable for a family with young children. Richmond is a beautiful market town steeped in history and is the perfect base from which to explore the Yorkshire Dales and the surrounding area. There are many interesting places to visit, all within a reasonable driving distance. We visited the National Railway museum in York and spent a day on the North Yorkshire Moors railway. Our visit to Whitby was ok, the abbey was fascinating if you can handle the 199 steps to get there!

  • "Lovely little house situated right on the corner of the market square which was so handy for all that we needed."

    The market square was beautiful and full of niche shops. Spoilt for choice with all of the beautiful walks available locally, and being so close to the castle was a bonus. The house was a blend of old period features meeting new decorative pieces - unique and quirky. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this house. Thank you Hannah and Jason.

    It had everything we needed including a washing machine and tumble dryer. Very comfortable beds and lovely bath and shower with complimentary toiletries. We felt welcome with our dog as they even provided dog food bowls and dog treats. Great location for exploring Richmond and the dales. We would definitely recommend this cottage.

  • "Cottage had everything and we enjoyed our stay but not suitable for anyone with mobility issues, steep stairs into cottage without hand rail."

    No issue for us, but my father struggled.

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.
