A delightful cottage (c1850) in the historic, hill town of Richmond. This timeless cottage is beautifully furnished and well equipped to create an inviting and relaxing retreat. Situated on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and Coast to Coast path, with riverside walks on the doorstep, it is an ideal base to explore the landscapes and history of the northern dales and North Yorkshire. All the amenities of Richmond are just minutes from the front door.

Evergreen Cottage enjoys an elevated position. On the ground floor, the sitting room has a woodburning stove for winter evenings, comfortable sofas, a small number of books and traditional games, plus smart TV and radio.


The spacious kitchen/dining room is well equipped and the dining table seats four people. There are views from the windows towards the castle at the front and onto the garden at the rear.


On the first floor, the main bedroom has a super king bed, exposed beams and windows on two sides. The pretty second bedroom has a king size bed. Both rooms have radios and smart TV. A hairdryer, ample wardrobe space, iron and ironing board and clothes rack are available.


The small family shower room and WC is upstairs, at the end of the landing. It includes a dual headed shower with a good supply of hot water and complimentary toiletries.


All the rooms, except the shower room, have a view over to the castle and the main rooms also have a view of the garden.


To the rear of the cottage is a small cottage garden which includes a garden table and chairs, a BBQ for the summer and a happy community of garden birds. You may hear Tawny owls around the cottage in the evenings. At the front of the property there is also a bench from which you can enjoy a view of the castle.


Access for drop off and loading is available at the front of the cottage, with off street parking within easy walking distance.


Richmond is an historic market town. The town and imposing Norman castle are within easy walking distance and the front of the cottage looks directly across to the castle's south curtain wall. In addition to the castle, which has a great view from the top of the Keep or Great Tower, Richmond has a unique Georgian Theatre Royal, as well as twisting, cobbled lanes, small local museums and a fascinating mix of architecture. The central marketplace hosts a small Saturday market where you can find delicious, high quality local produce, including fresh fish from Whitby, fruits, vegetables and delicious cheese. There are numerous independent shops, including a bookshop, deli and pantry, local family butchers, a greengrocer and other shops selling local produce, plus tea rooms and cafes. The nearby converted railway station, opposite the local swimming pool, is home to a number of amenities, including a small, multi-screen cinema, café, micro-brewery, handmade chocolate shop, local ice-cream parlour, artisan bakery and delicatessen. The Station can be easily reached from the town or by footpath from the cottage. The Victorian indoor market hall, close to the castle and Town Hall, is home to the local Tourist Information desk.


The landscape of North Yorkshire is steeped in history, with historic houses and ruined abbeys, whilst its natural features change throughout the seasons; from rare wild flower meadows in the spring to glorious purple heather moors in August and snow capped hills in winter. The region is also noted for its fresh local produce, good food and local character.

To help you get the most out of your visit, the cottage contains information on various local activities and places of interest.

Each dale has its own special characteristics and Swaledale retains its wild, limestone landscape. It is famous for its ancient dry stone walls, wildflower meadows, stone field barns, scattered villages and hardy sheep. The dale hosts a variety of local, cultural and sporting activities, for example: the celebrated Swaledale Festival, which takes place during two weeks in May and June each year, the Muker Silver Band, the annual Reeth agricultural show, and Ard Rock, the UKs number one mountain bike event. There are walks suitable for many levels of fitness and the Dales National Park centre in Reeth provides helpful information. Other highlights include the waterfalls at Keld, picture perfect Ivelet bridge, Tan Hill Inn known as Britain's highest public house, and the village of Reeth with cafes, traditional inns, picnic opportunities and great views from the village green.

Linking Swaledale with neighbouring Wensleydale, the Buttertubs Pass, is an iconic route past 20 metre limestone potholes known as the Buttertubs. Highlights in Wensleydale, in addition to the famous cheese making in Hawes, include the market town of Leyburn, Bolton Castle, Middleham Castle, Hardraw Force waterfall, Aysgarth Falls, the Wensleydale Railway, Penn Hill, The Forbidden Corner, Jervaulx Abbey at East Witton and variety of pretty villages along the way.

In Teesdale, to the north, don’t miss the spectacular High Force, the Bowes Museum and cafe in Barnard Castle and Egglestone Abbey, near the riverside path, as well as attractive villages such as Romaldkirk.

Further afield, for a longer outing, there are many opportunities including to the east, Whitby, Robin Hood’s Bay and the North Yorkshire Moors and railway. To the north, Durham Cathedral, Beamish Open Air museum and Hadrian’s Wall (Vindolanda, Chesters Fort etc.). To the west, the Three Peaks, Settle and the Lake District. To the south lie York, with its impressive Minster, the Shambles and museums, as well as Rievaulx Abbey, Newby Hall, the spa town of Harrogate which is famous for Bettys Café Tea Rooms, stately Castle Howard, glorious Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal, Brimham Rocks, Harlow Carr Gardens (RHS), the Bronte Parsonage at Howarth, Salts Mill and Saltaire.

With a varied landscape of windswept dales, heather-clad moors and dramatic coast, interspersed with picturesque towns and villages, vibrant cities and a rich historical heritage, Yorkshire is rightly considered one of Britain's premier holiday destinations. Known as 'God's Own County', Yorkshire has nearly one-third of England's National Parkland, two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and three sections of coastline designated as Heritage Coast.

Offering infinite opportunities for lovers of the great outdoors, the wild expanse of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in North and West Yorkshire is a glorious mix of awe-inspiring scenery, imposing castles, characterful Dales' villages and drystone walls. While to the east, the North York Moors National Park offers atmospheric moorland, fragrant pine forests and charming towns tucked away within steep-sloped valleys. Extending all the way to the Yorkshire Coast, you can even experience a traditional day at the seaside at popular resorts including Whitby, Flamborough and Scarborough. It's a beautiful terrain to explore.

A visit to the historical city of York is a must. Renowned for its medieval architecture, the magnificent York Minster and a myriad of museums, independent shops and exceptional eateries, you will not be disappointed. Then there's the chalk landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds, known to have inspired David Hockney. And with a packed calendar of events and festivals each year, including the Malton Food Festival, the Tour de Yorkshire and the Great Yorkshire Show, there's always something exciting to enjoy.

Our holiday cottages in Yorkshire are handpicked to ensure a luxurious and uniquely memorable experience. From dog-friendly cottages in the country to large family houses by the sea and romantic retreats in the city, we have a holiday in Yorkshire to suit everyone.
