The property

Richmond 8 miles.

A charming single-storey stone cottage resting on the grounds of the owner's home, The Netty is a delightful bolthole and base for two in the Richmondshire district of North Yorkshire.

The owner's home is an 18th century school house currently undergoing renovation with The Netty being the former outdoor privy, hence the name The Netty; a colloquial term for a WC!

Furnished to a wonderful standard and perfect for a romantic retreat, the property resides in East Layton and is within easy reach of the North Pennines and Yorkshire Dales.

Enter into the property and first discover the fantastic kitchen, compact but well-equipped with all you need for a self-catered stay, including an electric oven, 2-ring hob, and a fridge with ice box, all amidst bright décor, wooden worktops and stylish subway tiling.

Continue through the property, passing the sliding door granting access to the shower room, a wonderfully neat space to freshen up in with a walk-in shower and a heated towel rail.

Completing the layout is the open-plan living and sleeping area, with a double bed to settle into following a busy day.

To the end of the room is the snug sitting area, warming woodburning stove, wall-mounted TV and space-saving yet stylish dining table and chairs for two!

Enjoy relaxing in here with your partner, talking over your favourite moments of the holiday so far, or head outside onto the pretty patio in sunny weather for alfresco dining with an impeccable view of the rolling hills and countryside.

Just over a mile down the road is the wonderful farm shop, Mainsgill Farm Shop, where you can pick up a wealth of fresh, locally sourced produce for your romantic meals, whilst The Fox Hall Inn serves an excellent and comprehensive menu when you want a night off from cooking!

The nearby village of Eppleby can also accommodate any of your needs with its village store and local pub.

Enjoy a trip to the town of Barnard Castle where a handful of excellent attractions await, including the castle itself of the same name, positioned high on a rock overlooking the River Tees and and Tees Gorge.

Visit The Bowes Museum, a magnificent and grand building home to an eclectic collection of art, relics, antiques spread over three floors, perfect for a rainy day!

A unique holiday experience awaits you at Teesdale Alpacas, offering a chance to enjoy a scenic trek alongside one of these kind furry creatures!

The Wetheriggs Animal Rescue will be another firm favourite for animal lovers with a host of friendly animals to meet, or venture up to Raby Castle, a dramatic 14th century fortress with extensive grounds, perfect for heritage hunters!

Hop on the Pennine Way in the north of the Yorkshire Dales and continue up through to the North Pennines, with outstanding scenery to behold, it's a walk you won't forget.

A trip to the town of Richmond is perfect for riverside walks along the River Swale, stopping to admire the River Swale Waterfalls, along with visiting The Green Howards Museum and Richmondshire Museum, along with Richmond Castle.

Spend quality time with your other half in the delightful surroundings of North Yorkshire at The Netty.
