A stylish bolthole located in historic Richmond, perfect for couples, small families or friends seeking an abundance of fresh air and countryside adventures within the Yorkshire Dales and beyond.

Experience the appeal of famous Richmond for yourselves when you book this three-bedroom, holiday home set within the historic North Yorkshire town. Wander its streets right from your doorstep; see its many historic sights and enjoy your proximity to great restaurants and interesting independent shops and market stalls. Nestled on the fringes of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, the three-storey property sleeps five guests and also welcomes two contented canines with open paws.

Make the most of your central position by strolling straight out from home at every opportunity. Pick up one of the town trails, for example, or walk over to the National Trust’s nearby Round Howe Woods, where you can follow a 1.5-mile, circular route. Head further along the River Swale for a longer stretch through more picturesque scenery.

Step into this bright holiday property and feel immediately at home. The hub of the cottage is its open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, where you can all gather together to cook, relax and enjoy the opportunity of just being together away from the hustle and bustle of your daily lives.

Settle on the comfortable seating in here after your long days out to watch the Smart TV, make your plans for the following day or play a few holiday games. Decide whose turn it is to cook with the tasty ingredients you have shopped with, then wander over to the kitchen area to find everything you need to help you with this task. Lay the table, dine together and then make the most of the dishwasher.

Head on up to one of the comfortable bedrooms when tiredness gets the better of you. Find a super-king-size, which can be arranged as twins in advance, plus a single, on the first floor, together with the family bathroom. Follow more stairs up to the second floor to discover a generous king-size bedroom, with an en-suite shower room and WC. There is also a utility area up here.

Spill out into the courtyard garden on warm days to soak up the Yorkshire sunshine. Dine out here, watch the birds in the trees and perhaps treat yourself to a cold glass of something bubbly. You’ll also find parking for two cars at this holiday home.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • 2 bedrooms - 1 super-king-size zip-and-link (which can be made into a twin on request), 1 king-size and 1 single
  • 1 bathroom with shower over bath and WC, and 1 en-suite shower room with WC
  • Electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher
  • Utility cupboard with washer/dryer
  • Smart TV in the lounge
  • Welcome pack provided on arrival
  • Highchair and travel cot available on request
  • Patio with outdoor dining set
  • Allocated off-road parking spaces for 2 cars
  • Shops, pubs and restaurants all within a short 10-15min walk

Hop in the car and drive 15 miles to Barnard Castle, a historic, market town overlooked by the ruins of its 12th-and 13th-century castle. Ponder in the shops here and have a bite out in a cafe before heading home. The historic village of Easby, home to Easby Abbey is also worth a visit. Just 2 miles away, this is set on the banks of the River Swale and is the perfect spot for a picnic in the summer months.

Plan a trip to Aysgarth Falls, 15.5 miles away. This magical, triple flight of waterfalls nestles in leafy woodland and tranquil farmland and is formed by the River Ure as it cascades over almost 1 mile on its descent to mid-Wensleydale.

Richmond is a charming market town on the borders of Wensleydale and Swaledale. It boasts an 11th-century castle, fine Georgian architecture, a historic Georgian theatre and a large cobbled market square as some of its many attractions. Stroll into town for a cup of Yorkshire tea at one of the many tearooms there or pop over for dinner at one of the excellent restaurants.

The gorgeous River Swale runs through the town and, across the river – less than 1 mile away – are the River Swale Waterfalls. You can walk in either direction along the river and deep into the countryside without having to go anywhere near the car. We also recommend exploring the restored former Richmond Railway Station which has lots to entertain young and old including a small cinema, cafe/restaurant, gallery, microbrewery and artisan bakery.

Richmond is also known as “The Gateway to the Dales” so expect stunning Dales scenery within minutes of leaving the town. Peppering this glorious countryside are countless attractive little towns and villages and, if you enjoy a bit of surreal entertainment, how about a visit to the quite brilliant Forbidden Corner, an attraction full of statues and hidden surprises, 14 miles away near Middleham.

There are lots of other breathtaking historic sites to explore in the Dales, including the stunning Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Garden, 30 miles, a World Heritage Site. This is a superb area for walkers and cyclists with many routes from the doorstep or just a short distance away, including Alfred Wainwright’s famous Coast to Coast Walk which passes close by. And with York, Harrogate and the North York Moors all within easy striking distance, you have lots of choices for day trips!

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.
