  • "This was our 2nd visit to Grace Cottage we love everything about it ,its in a fab location in the middle of Richmond close to shops pubs and plenty of walks ."

    The cottage itself is lovely and cosy with everything you need for a comfortable stay.It can be a little noisy at times if you have people staying upstairs as its its a old building with wood floors you can hear every creek and groan but it didn’t bother us too much .Also with a pub around the corner fri and sat nights are a bit noisy .Parking can be a problem but we were out most of the time so not an issue for us .We had a very enjoyable stay and will definitely be back in the future.One little pointer is that the mattress could do with being replaced it felt a little tired.

  • "The apartment was really close to the town centre and was absolutely perfect as a base to travel around the area."

    The apartment itself was really lovely, clean and the owners had left a useful information pack that we used regularly. unfortunately, the electric hob on the cooker was difficult to get working, you can hear the people staying above really clearly and the tv was not working.

    Thank you for your feedback, we appreciate all comments. We are so pleased that you enjoyed the apartment and that you found it clean and welcoming. We are sorry to read that you struggled with the hob, we are always on hand to answer any questions or queries that you may have in the cottage so we would have been happy to assist you with this. Regarding the TV, unfortunately the Bilsdale transmitter fire has left many homes without TV and radio signal. While this is getting fixed, we encourage our guests to bring a tablet/ laptop to watch TV on, or watch on catch-up. Thank you again for taking the time to leave these comments. Property Owner

    But we were out all day so not too much of a problem.

  • "As a retired couple, we spent a very enjoyable June week in this apartment."

    It was perfectly located, literally just around the corner from Richmond's bustling Market Square. The flat was very comfortable, and well furnished and equipped. We did have occasion to seek help from the owner on a small point, and she was very pleasant and obliging. A lovely little holiday retreat in a beautiful corner of the world.

  • "We felt that the mattress and pillows were not very comfortable."

    The settee was very uncomfortable to sit on The front door key was sometimes very difficult to open in the morning I know it was quite small just for two but due to the uncomfortable bed and settee we would not recommend the cottage

    Thank you for your feedback. As you can see we normally have fantastic feedback when it comes to the property. The mattress is new and the sofa is also fairly new. We have acted on the key issue and this is being resolved. Thank you. Property Owner

  • "No freezer or icebox which was a nuisance as we had taken frozen items and no ice for drinks."

    After a couple of days there wasn't any hot water (except in the shower). Rang the owner and she came and showed us how to boost it until it could be sorted. The kitchen is well equipped but short of a baking sheet and dishes to go in the oven (e.g. Pyrex). There is an excellent shower and the main room is very comfortable. It is situated round the corner from market place so very convenient for shops, pubs etc. Can be difficult to park.

  • "The location of Grace Cottage is brilliant - just off the market square."

    The cottage itself was immaculately clean, well equipped and, although small, absolutely perfect for two people. We were lucky to have incredible weather for our stay and it was a little disappointing to have nowhere to sit outside to soak up the sun, but it was just a short walk to the castle walls with benches to sit on and not much further to beautiful parks. In bad weather, or the winter months, a DVD player might be a welcome addition but that's just a suggestion. The process for accessing the key was extremely straightforward. Information about parking was helpful but it would have been good to know in advance that we needed £15 in £1 coins in order to buy a weekly pass - no card or phone payments are available. In summary, Grace Cottage is a little gem, well cared for and ideal for a short break for two. Highly recommended.

    A quaint, quirjky little place ideal for a couple. We had a fantastic stay and loved everything about it. It’s perfectky styled and immaculately cream. Bed is soooo comfy too. Slightly noisy upstairs neighbours on Saturday morning but this did not distract from our lovely weekend. Check out the Gin Bar and Emporium, both well worth a visit.

    May not be suitable for a long summer break,as there is nowhere to sit outside. BUT other than this the cottage is comfortable and well equipped.

  • "The cottage is quite lovely inside, it is tastefully decorated with very comfortable bed and furnishings, it has plenty of lamps etc and a lovely electric log fire which adds atmosphere."

    Kitchen has everything you would need for the stay. Although literally one minute from the market square we did not hear any noise at night. So much to see and do just in the town itself, all on your doorstep. The cinema at the station was lovely, as was the walk along the river and back through the fields to visit Easby Abbey. The dales are so beautiful and two minutes drive. The owner has thoughtfully left plenty of local info in the cottage plus books and games. We stayed a week but could have easily stayed longer. Very romantic stay for couples. Parking a slight problem, I was lucky and often was able to park right outside the cottage, but at busy times that may be more tricky so I would say take fifteen pounds of pound coins and get parking for the whole week includes all night. The parking machines do not take bank cards or pay by phone.

  • "Stylish and comfortable, this cottage or apartment if one prefers, was perfect in every way for the week."

    All amenities and appliances ready to hand and comfortable, cosy and easy to keep tidy. A solo traveller, I found its accessibility by public transport superb, would need a car only to travel further afield as there is much to see and do, literally on the doorstep. Eateries and good pubs abound and local produce for home cooking, delicious and so easy to get. Sights, sounds and friendly folk made it a joy of a holiday.

    We arrive by train & bus, so don't have the problems with finding a parking spot which seems to cause a bit of hassle to others. Bus stops are just around the corner. We used The Little White Bus service to take us to other parts of Swaledale, and enjoyed great walking, up and down the dale, between villages.

    There could of been a welcome pack or teas/coffee and a pint of milk or something like that, also the shower needs to be a power shower, it took me a long time to shower, I don't really like wasting too much water. Other than that is was a really nice property and although the layout was quirky its was fun easy to use.

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.
