    “Warm and spotless - near to the centre”

    Spent February half term here and boy it was cold. The log burner is very effective - probably one of the best I have used, and fantastic on a chilly night.

    Spent February half term here and boy it was cold. The log burner is very effective - probably one of the best I have used, and fantastic on a chilly night. The cottage is down a quiet cul-de-sac only minutes from the town centre. It was comfortable and clean. The enclosed courtyard looked welcoming (though not for us in February!) A great base from which to explore this beautiful part of Yorkshire.

The property

A beautiful stone built, two storey cottage in a quiet backwater just a short walk from the centre of the popular market town of Richmond.

Individually styled, this upside down cottage is a real delight and provides a first class holiday home, ideal for a romantic break or a week away with the family.

On entering the cottage from the roadside level guests will be met by a spacious open plan living area, consisting of a delightful sitting area with cosy woodburning stove, a bespoke modern kitchen and centre island providing a great place to sit and enjoy a lovely home cooked meal.

Charming throughout, the room enjoys a beautiful vaulted ceiling with the original A-frame beams, a stylish and modern oak floor and picture windows looking out across the old town.

A staircase leads from the living area to two bedrooms and a modern bathroom and access to the lower ground floor walled garden, a great place to relax, have a favourite tipple and enjoy an evening barbecue in complete privacy.

A short walk takes guests into the lovely old town centre with a huge cobbled town square surrounded by shops, pubs, cafes, tearooms and restaurants.

Richmond is also famous for its fascinating Norman castle, where walks along the castle walls and down to the River Swale are a real delight.

With many exciting opportunities in the surrounding area, Swaledale and the Yorkshire Dales on the doorstep, this is an ideal location for that much promised and talked about break.

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.
