Richmond Cottages

Discover this set of four stone-built terraced cottages nestled within a quiet courtyard development, situated on the outskirts of the market town of Richmond. The cottages together sleep up to 16 guests making it a wonderful find for large groups of friends, families, walkers, cyclists and those alike to explore this exciting part of the country, acting as the gateway to the dramatic landscape of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. All four cottages share an identical layout, comprising spacious open-plan living rooms, sleek family bathrooms, elegantly-presented double bedrooms and twin bedrooms, as well as a patio area and parking spots to the exterior. If you and your loved ones can tear yourself away from this truly charming spot, look forward to a gentle stroll into the centre of Richmond, which is regarded as the jewel in the heart of North Yorkshire and a place of breathtaking beauty, inspiring painters and poets from past and present; this is easy to see why as you meander down the cobbled streets lined with plenty of places to eat and drink or walk along the endearing River Swale. Whilst here, be sure to delve into the town’s past by taking a walk around the remains of Richmond Castle, which still dominates the town today or discover the beautiful Georgian architecture before visiting the plethora of museums and monuments in town. Continuing to impress, the town’s old railway station has been transformed into a delightful community enterprise and today plays host to a number of opportunities; catch an old classic at the cinema, sample Archer’s Jersey Ice Cream, pick up a sweet treat from Angel’s Share Bakery or indulge with a beverage from the Richmond Brewing Company. Alternatively, use your time at the Richmond Cottages to explore the unique labyrinth of tunnels and follies within the Forbidden Corner, a four acre garden located in the Tupgill Park Estate or travel slightly further afield to find Easby Abbey, one of the best-preserved monasteries in the UK. Those feeling more adventurous, begin your escapade to the Yorkshire Dales by stopping off at Wensleydale Creamery to sample some of the finest cheeses before heading north to Hardraw Force, a 100-foot, single-drop waterfall, said to be the highest in England. Moreover, the National Park boasts a magnitude of routes amidst stunning landscapes, which can be enjoyed on two-wheels or on foot. With so much to see and do, bring your loved ones to share an action-packed break to this part of Yorkshire.

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.
