The property

Situated within a Grade II listed, which was formerly the old, Sunday School is this first-floor apartment, The Old Mission Hall.

This characterful abode offers plenty of space for groups of family and friends to come together to enjoy the historic town of Richmond and the countryside setting of Swaledale.

Make your way up to the first-floor of this charming property and be welcomed into the open-plan living room, which creates a wonderful social hub to gather together to create memories together, whether it be cooking, dining, watching TV or playing board games.

The characterful exposed beams frame the elegant furnishings and contemporary design, where you can look forward to cosying up on the plush furnishings and enjoying a family film night upon the Smart TV.

The kitchen enjoys a sleek design, enticing the budding chef of the group to make the most of the induction hob, electric oven, microwave and dishwasher.

Once dinner is served, settle down at the dining table to toast to a wonderful holiday and plan the next day’s adventure.

The first floor is completed by two bedrooms, comprising of a king-size bedroom and a bunk bedroom, whilst the mezzanine-style second-floor boasts a king-size bedroom with a sofa bed for any additional guests.

With its central location, you will be spoilt for choice by the pubs and eateries that are awaiting to be enjoyed, as well as a maze of shops for exploring one afternoon.

The George and Dragon pub in Hudswell is an award-winning pub, becoming the CAMRA pub of the year for 2017 is highly recommended and just a short drive away.

To immerse yourself in the local history, be sure to visit the fascinating Norman castle, which can be seen on the hill from the cottage and offers a picturesque walk along the castle walls and down to the River Swale, or travel to the outskirts of town to find the ruins of Easby Abbey, one of the best-preserved monasteries in the UK.

For a unique cinema experience, be sure to catch a film at The Old Station, where you can enjoy a glass of something fizzed whilst enjoying an old classic.

Also at The Old Station you can look forward to sampling Archer’s Jersey Ice Cream, a treat from Angel’s Share Bakery or indulge with a beverage from the Richmond Brewing Company, before admiring the local artwork within the gallery.

Attractions within the surrounding area, certain to suit a group of all ages and tastes includes the Forbidden Corner, which is a unique folly garden located in the Tupgill Park Estate, where you can look forward to exploring the labyrinth of tunnels, chambers, follies and surprises within the superb four acres garden.

The Old Mission Hall is a delightful getaway to enjoy all year around.

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.
