  • "Jaipur house is the perfect base for exploring Richmond."

    So comfortable and cosy (especially with the log burner on!) The cottage is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need during your stay. Would definitely recommend - thank you!

    Thank you for your feedback Megan, really lovely to hear that you enjoyed Jaipur House. Hope the weather was kind to you and you enjoyed the local shops and restaurants. Property Owner

  • "Excellent location for the town centre, restaurants, theatre, museum and as a base for walks from Richmond to the surrounding area."

    Beds are super comfy. We enjoyed the cinema room (a treat for us, but some instructions on how the remote controls worked would have been helpful!) We found parking in Wellington Place each time we parked up. I would have liked a bath mat to stand on in the bath when using the shower. A comfy holiday retreat with all that we needed for our first trip to Richmond. Thank you.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback, I m glad that you enjoyed our little cottage, the surrounding areas and the local town, we also love it when we visit. We do not provide bath mats due to hygiene reasons. Thank you for your feedback regard remote control instructions, we will take this into account. Hope to have you back! Thank you. Property Owner

  • "We chose this property amongst other things, for its closeness to town centre and availability of nearby car park."

    Please be aware there is no outside space. The living room has a two seater sofa and the “cinema” room a second two seater sofa which makes it unsuitable for a group of four to sit together. Whilst there are a total of four televisions in the property it should be noted that there is no terrestrial TV which we found disappointing. It is usual to find a file with instructions for appliances etc. and information about the area but there was nothing in this property. Some information was sent via What’s App. Whilst there are two double bedrooms, the second one was very tight for space around the bed itself. Bathroom is very well appointed with great shower. Kitchen was good - well equipped with everything you would need. We enjoyed our stay in Richmond but wouldn’t return to this property.

    Hi Joan, thank you for your feedback. I am sorry to hear that you would not be returning to Jaipur House, not every property is suited for everyone. All previous feedback about the internal layout has been positive, I am concerned that you did not look at the photographs fully before booking as these quite clearly demonstrate the seating arrangements and show what room the second bedroom has. As your booking was only for 2 adults, I’m not sure why you saw this as concern. We don't offer terrestrial TV as most people want the luxury of escaping day to day life and TV and are happy with the smart TV. It’s is quite clear from the pictures that there is no outside space. Thank you for your feedback regarding a file, we will consider this however, most guests are happy to receive information electronically. Thank you for your positive feedback regarding the kitchen and bathroom. Many thanks. Property Owner

  • "The property smells of damp, this is more than likely from the TV room (TV not connected to any input) as the back of the property is below ground level and the tanking has failed."

    There was also evidence of a leak from the bathroom on the ceiling of the hall & sitting room. The property was clean and well presented, location was great for easy access to the town centre. Car parking was 2 minutes away at the Nuns Close car park (£15 a week). One niggle the back bedroom had a double bed in it, the room was small that it was difficult to get down the sides of the bed. In fact the child got up to go to the toilet in the night and banged their head off the wall. The bathroom has a fixed shower screen, the remaining gap made it very difficult to help bath a child and if you got up from the toilet leaning forward, you hit your head off it.

    Hi Brian, thank you for your feedback. We did have a leak in the bathroom which has since been fixed, just waiting on contractors to do the remedial works. These old properties definitely come with their challenges, and underground rooms are one of them. I’ll contact the tanking company, thank you again for your feedback. Again, these properties come with their challenges and small spaces is definitely one of them. Apart from the above, I hope you had a lovely stay in Richmond and the weather was kind to you. Many thanks. Property Owner

  • "Loved our stay at the cottage, was very cosy and clean."

    Bedding and towels very good quality, Loved having the TV in the bedroom as dont normally get this in a cottage. Was great to have a nice lazy morning a few days. Kitchen had enough for us, don't cook full meals but had what we needed for breakfast, lunches or snacks. Fridge was a bit awkward to get into as is a small space. Our favourite was the cinema room, used this a few times during our stay, plus cottage very central and close to all amenities. Plus Paul the owner was very quick to respond to text msg regarding any issues, information and recommended various restaurants. Would definitely return for another stay.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback! I’m pleased you enjoyed your stay and had everything that you needed, the cinema room is our favourite too. Apologies re fridge, very tough in these small cottages. We look forward to welcoming you back again Property Owner

  • "Great wee cottage close to the centre of Richmond."

    We live in Richmond so know what a super town it is close to some stunning Dales countryside. We stayed in Jaipur House for 4 weeks as our house is under renovation. The cottage worked well for us as a couple. Given the size of rooms and the setup of the the main living room I can’t imagine it working well for more than 2 though. A couple of bug bears were we were surprised to find the gas and electricity on prepayment meters and that we needed to periodically check on these per the owner. As it turned out, it was fine as we didn’t run out but it was a worry to be told this. Also the fridge is too tall for the space it’s situated so the door only partially opens. Despite these issues, we would certainly recommend the cottage for a couple.

    Hi John, Thank you for your feedback and recommendations, I am glad you enjoyed your stay at Jaipur House and that the cottage worked for you. Sorry about the concerns regarding the prepayment meters, we always fully load them to avoid any shortfall or issues whilst guests are staying, I just thought it was best to make you aware during your stay. We are currently on the list to have these changed. Re: the fridge, unfortunately these small cottages dont allow much elbow room. Property Owner

  • "Very nice cottage and only a 5 minute walk into the centre of Richmond."

    The town is really nice and the people are very friendly. A walk down by the river is recommended with a lovely waterfall. I also recommend Aysgarth Falls- much nicer than Niagara Falls! All in all, a great break in a stunningly beautiful county, even though the weather was very mixed.

  • "The property was well presented, clean and comfortable."

    One kitchen chair was broken so wasn't easy to sit on. Would recommend removing the piano and introducing another sofa as it wasn't possible for four people to sit in the same room, so made for a slightly unsociable environment. Beds were very comfortable and shower worked very well.

  • "The cottage itself was very clean and the location was great."

    We had an issue on arrival where the key code had been changed without notice and we stood for quite a while before being able to get in. The rooms downstairs were a good size and it would be nice to go back in the colder months and take advantage of the log burner. The kitchen is well equipped. There was a side gate to an outdoor area but this was locked and we could not find a key for it. The bedrooms are on the small size with nowhere to hang clothes. The bathroom was nice and clean. Overall a lovely place to stay but we would have liked an outside space to sit. Would definitely stay again

    Thank you for your feedback, I am sorry you experienced an issue with the key code upon arrival and glad we were able to rectify this. We would love to welcome you again. Property Owner

    Rooms lovely and cosy, enough room to prepare meals easily and we loved the idea of the cinema room. Very clean too. Although there is no parking outside the property the car park opposite is very convenient to leave your car. We paid for a 7 day parking from council offices. It was great as we didn't need to use the car most days. The property is in a good location both for a wander into Richmond or for walking in the surrounding countryside. The owner was very helpful and easy to contact when we needed some information. We would visit again.

    This met our holiday requirement 100%. We opted to use Nuns Close car park (2 mins away) with a £15 ticket for one week and 24hr parking. Ticket is also valid for 21 Richmondshire DC & Yorkshire Dales NPA car parks in total and is ideal if you plan to explore Swaledale, Wensleydale and even further afield. Check out the Richmondshire District Council website for details. We bought ours from their office near The Station facility but on-line facility to buy may be available that could save time.

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.
