  • "We had a lovely weekend break here."

    The cottage had everything we needed. Hot tub was superb. Enclosed area was good for the dogs. Lots of walks to go on in the area. Visited Richmond castle, the river and the ice-cream parlour. They were all great to visit. Weather was forecasted to be very wet, on the whole, it was good to us. Hosts were welcoming, and although there was building works going on next door it didn't impact on our weekend break. Thank you for the wine and chocolates.

  • "The cottage was lovely and was just as outlined on the listing."

    Great location in the village and a perfect spot to go off exploring both by foot or in the car. It was our first holiday with our dog and the fact that she had the secure outside space to go into as well was great. The hot tub was a perfect addition - thoroughly recommend it! What a perfect way to relax at the end of a day of walking!

  • "First impression building work & builder overlooked back yard."

    Went for peace & quiet & private holiday kind of restricted times to use hot tub & think advert should state this. On this point was a couple of days not there & if your out until evening won't be a problem. Property is clean and comfortable but did get a shock sitting on right side of settee sank right down in it. Bbq outside seen better days. Decent base for setting out from - good walks for Dogs - warm property & just about right space for 2 people.

    Not only have we enjoyed the local walks along the river with our dogs but visited some lovely local market towns with very friendly folk. The cottage was wonderful and homely and the dogs loved the outside space with the bonus of a hot tub for us

  • "We have just stayed in Dove Core for a week, the cottage is spacious comfortable and clean."

    The hot tub and the tv outside is luxurious and something we made use of after a long day exploring. The cottage is in a friendly village with a shop and pub within in walking distance. The cottage is well positioned to explore the Yorkshire Sales staring with the town of Richmond. The village has wonderful walks beside the river which our dog loved, the garden is enclosed and safe for the dog which was reassuring. The owners are friendly and helpful when needed . Overall a very love!y cottage we would recommend. One note currently there is building work next door, the builder is very aware turning off his music off, it wasn't a problem for us but some people might not appreciate it.

    Great base to explore the Dales. Easy access to the A1 for exploring further afield. Beamish Museum was well worth the drive north. Dave was friendly, gave us a tour of the property on arrival and quickly dealt with an issue with the shower. Enjoyed the hot tub every day. Well equipped kitchen and bed was comfy.

    It is well equipped, comfortable and warm. The hot tub and outside shower/loo area was great. We loved the enclosed patio area which was ideal for our dog. The local pub was just meters down the road and very friendly. Plus there is a small shop opposite which we bought ice from. Great location for visiting Richmond, Easby Abbey and surrounding areas. We had a good morning out at foxglove Covert Nature reserve in Catterick Garrison.

  • "We had a pleasant stay at the Dove Cote, I feel that this property has heaps of potential but unfortunately some aspects were not quite up to scratch."

    The location of the property is excellent and we really enjoyed exploring Richmond and further into the Dales over our 3 night stay, the Farmers arms is also a must if staying here, they are super friendly and serve great food. I was surprised when we first arrived at the lack of visitors handbook or welcome pack, I’ve never stayed at a property before that doesn’t have one and feel it’s very beneficial. It would have been nice to have a written Introduction / welcome from the hosts with some basic instructions and a guide to the property (for example, there was a sign asking us to switch the hot tub off the evening before our departure but no instructions on how to do it and we couldn’t figure it out!). We had an issue with the boiler on our first night which left us without heating however when we contacted Dave the owner the next day he came over straight away and even got a plumber out to check things over for us. My main disappointment with the property was the level of cleanliness, the blinds in the kitchen were stained with some kind of sauce, some of the utensils and cutlery had dried up food on them meaning we needed to wash everything prior to use and some of the pots / pans are extremely old and could do with updating. With regards to upstairs, the bedding and bedsheets are really well used and worn out and need updating, the bed itself did have lots of hairs in when we arrived which is never very welcoming and the mattress feels ready for an update. Inside the chest of draws there was empty clothes packets that had obviously been left by prior guests but is slightly worrying that something so obvious hadn’t been picked up / noticed during change over. The toilet upstairs is very difficult to flush meaning we opted to use the downstairs toilet instead which is in a sort of linking tunnel between the holiday cottage and the owners property. The radiator in the bathroom appears to be controlled from the owners side of the building and it was turned off for our visit which made it absolutely freezing! The hot tub was lovely and relaxing and the addition of an outside tv is a lovely touch however towards the end of our visit (night 3) the water in the hot tub was starting to get murky and there was the beginnings of a strange smell emerging, I don’t think the water had been topped up with chlorine or had the chemical levels checked during our visit (perhaps investing in a slow release chlorine device would be a good idea). Overall we really did enjoy our stay and it was brilliant to explore Yorkshire, however at the price being paid I was a little let down with some of the elements. With some small alterations this place could be a little gem!

    The cottage itself was lovely with a shower and toilet near the hot tub so no walking through the house wet. When the hot tub did heat up it was lovely. Dogs weren’t allowed upstairs and with the whole cottage being opened plan and bedroom at the top of the stairs made it hard to stop my fir babies coming upstairs, a safety gate at the bottom of the stairs would have been ideal. The cottage was clean and well looked after and had everything you needed and the yard was safe for your dogs.

One of the main problems for me was lack of a lawned area for the dogs. I had to take them away from the cottage for toileting and as the weather was exceptionally hot it was tiresome. My dogs wouldn’t use the patio as they’ve been trained not to. After saying that I knew there was no garden but didn’t expect 28 degree weather!! I would recommend the cottage but dog owners need to be mindful of it’s suitability for their dogs.

Toilet in bedroom had thick dust on the seat when lifted it had yellow dried in wee stains plus thick soap stains around the sink taps. Wardrobe had thick layer of dust on top. We know you will get dust but that wasnt just a days worth. Also full description it lists a Washer/ Dryer its only a washing machine. You dont expect to go on holiday to start cleaning when you arrive. Hopefully owners will take this on board as cottage is lovely and handy for visiting Richmond, Northallerton, Masham

    Thanks for your feedback. As a proactive owner I take all feedback onboard and check any issues. The rug has been checked and steam cleaned, thank you for letting us know. Any dust has now also been removed and yellow stains have been checked, I believe they were from cleaning fluid and this will be checked/rinsed thoroughly in future. Utensils are usually put through a dishwasher cycle on guest changeovers, this will be monitored going forward. The advert will also be updated to advertise washing machine only.

About the location


  • Richmond 3 miles
  • Leyburn 12 miles
  • Reeth 14 miles
  • Barnard Castle 18 miles

The village of Brompton-on-Swale is situated to the east of Richmond on the northern banks of the River Swale. Named in the Domesday Book the village name is believed to have been derived from “broom” (the Shrub) and “tun” an old English word meaning farmstead or village. Today the village is home to a traditional pub and village shop. There are pleasant walks to be enjoyed around the village and along the riverside. The nearby ancient market town of Richmond is three miles away with its cobbled streets and narrow alleys or 'wynds' which enshrine over nine centuries of busy history and unique character. The town grew up around its castle, a Norman fortress dating back to 1071. Today Richmond offers 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. Brompton-on-Swale is located between the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Yorkshire Moors National Park providing an ideal location for exploring this scenic area.
