Come and stay with friends and family in this stunning stone-built detached home, ideal for celebrations. Tucked away inside a walled garden in the Georgian town of Richmond.

This attractive stone house less than a mile from the centre of market town Richmond is perfect for large families or groups of friends looking for somewhere close to the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, guests can immerse themselves in the natural beauty and tranquillity of the area. It is ideal for keen walkers and cyclists alike with a range of routes and trails nearby to suit all abilities. Whether you want waterfalls, rivers, woodland or rolling green hills, this area has it all. Richmond itself is steeped in history for all those budding historians out there with plenty of historical buildings and sites of interest to discover in the town and local area. After a busy day exploring, you will have no difficulty in finding somewhere to enjoy a cup of Yorkshire tea or a pint of ale, as Richmond has plenty of tearooms, pubs and cafes to choose from.



Light, bright and contemporary, this beautiful detached house has been sympathetically restored to create a spacious home for the modern guest. A neutral palette throughout allows classic-style furniture to take centre stage, whilst patterned wallpapers and murals add a touch of sophistication and interest.



With its reverse-level layout, you enter on the ground floor, but head upstairs to the main living area on the first floor. Here, there is a cosy lounge with two sofas to curl up on of an evening in front of the Smart TV. There is also a games room on this level with a pool table, sofa and TV, offering a separate space for teenagers to escape to and chill out. The bright and airy kitchen/diner is also on this floor. It’s a wonderful room in which original features sit harmoniously alongside cool, contemporary design with all the mod-cons you’ll need to cook up a feast. A handy window seat is a great place to sit and chat to whoever’s cooking in the kitchen and the dining table sits eight guests comfortably.



Downstairs, there are two bedrooms: a king-size and a twin room. Both are beautifully decorated to create welcoming and restful spaces so that you can get a good night’s sleep. Completing this floor is the immaculate and stylish main bathroom with a separate bath and shower.



The final two bedrooms are on the second floor. Here you’ll find a double room and another king-size room, which again, are beautifully presented. There is also a separate WC on this floor.



Located within a stunning Georgian walled garden, the outdoor space for this property is varied and spacious. Accessed from the first floor, there are a number of spaces to choose from over a few levels, so you can choose whether you want to sit in the sun, the shade or somewhere where you can admire the views. Alternatively, you may well want to enjoy a spot of dining on the patio, weather permitting. There is off-road parking for up to four cars.

Soak in some local history at the Richmondshire Museum or head straight for Richmond Castle, a handsome structure overlooking the town that dates back to the 11th century following the Norman Conquest. It features a fascinating visitor experience that guides you through the castle’s rich history. Stroll along the River Swale and discover the River Swale Waterfalls. Keep following the river and in a mile, you’ll reach the fringes of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, where you can get wild in nature, hiking and cycling over these beautiful peaks and coming upon gems of English history along the way.

Caroline was Lovely and really helpful if we needed anything. Hide

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful house in the lovely town of Richmond, on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales. The property had everything we needed and more. The hot tub, bbq and pizza oven in the garden were great additions to our holiday and the pool table was a big hit with our boys. The host was lovely, with lots of nice touches to make uRead mores feel welcome. We would definitely recommend this property and area. Hide

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.
