After a leisurely stroll along the River Swale, make your way back to this cosy bolt hole just off the market place; Surprisingly spacious with two double bedrooms, this could be your perfect escape for a long weekend, a week or couple of weeks, a perfect base from which to discover Richmond and the beautiful countryside in the surrounding Dales.

Enter the property to discover a cosy, well-equipped kitchen, with wooden flooring, shaker style kitchen units and a wonderful SMEG fridge/freezer, offering a good space to create delicious home-cooked meals, as well as a small dining area with a window seat.

You will find a larger dining table in the living/dining room, the perfect space to enjoy meals together as you make plans for the days ahead; This inviting space is bright and airy, boasting views of the castle and town, with a stunning original feature fireplace and a large corner sofa to relax on at the end of a long and busy day, enjoying a cosy night in.

When sleep is calling, take your pick of two generously sized bedrooms catering for all, a first floor bedroom with a zip/link bed (either twin beds or king size bed), and a second-floor master bedroom with king-size bed and a large smart TV.

The second floor also hosts the family bathroom suite, which offers a shower over a roll top bath - enjoy the luxury of a long soak or a quick shower to get out exploring.

You can begin your mornings outside at the small bistro table with a refreshing cup of coffee and views across to Culloden Tower and the rolling hills of the Dales, before pulling on your coats and shoes to go off exploring.

Walk the ancient cobbled streets in the bustling town centre to find a host of independent shops, supermarkets, pubs, bars and plenty of restaurants, as well as remarkable Georgian architecture and Richmond Market Place - a vital piece of the town's heritage dating back to the 12th century, where you can enjoy art, shopping and food.

For a cultural experience, head to the commanding castle, which stands in an elevated position overlooking the River Swale (and can be seen from the cottage as only a couple hundred yards away) which runs through the town, visit Richmondshire Museum, enjoy a film at the unique Station cinema and catch a performance at the Georgian Theatre Royal.

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.
