A peaceful place to rest and feel at home in this sweet, cosy cottage with wood burner for cosy evenings and is close to the town of Richmond.

Nestled in the peaceful village of Brompton-on-Swale, to the east of market town Richmond, this contemporary, cosy cottage is the perfect romantic retreat for couples. With the Yorkshire Dales National Park to the west and the North York Moors National Park to the east, you can immerse yourselves in the natural beauty and tranquillity of the surrounding countryside, whilst enjoying quality time together away from your hectic everyday life. 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 and is teeming with stunning flora and fauna. There is also plenty of history and sites of interest to keep historians happy, so be sure to bring your camera. There is a shop and pub within a few hundred metres of the property, so you can pick up some supplies or treat yourselves to a pint of ale and a good meal at the end of a busy day.

This one-storey cottage has been beautifully decorated to create bright and airy accommodation for two people. White walls, neutral décor and the odd pop of colour create a contemporary-cottage feel that is welcoming and the warm wooden tones and original features add character.

You enter through a small porch and from here you step down into the lounge/diner. Original beams are painted white to add light, whilst the traditional fireplace and the wood burner are the focal point for the room. The two comfy sofas are the perfect place to relax of an evening, either to watch TV, read a book or play a board game. The small dining table provided ample space for a romantic dinner for two. Stepping up into the next room, you will find the well-equipped, beautifully designed kitchen complete with Belfast sink. It has everything you’ll need to cook up some treats for both of you to enjoy.

Moving through into the bedroom, you will find a super king-size bed (which can be made up as a twin on request), fitted wardrobes and a dressing table. The bedroom is bright and airy with a cool colour scheme creating a restful space. The en-suite bathroom is also elegant and modern with a large shower over the bath.

Outside, there is a delightful, sunny courtyard garden with a traditional Yorkshire stone wall adding character. There is dining furniture for al fresco dining, a morning coffee or an evening glass of wine. Whilst you’re allowed to unload from the private lane which leads to the cottage, parking is prohibited here, but there is roadside parking available on the main road.

  • 1 bedroom - super-king-size zip-and-link (which can be made up as a twin on request)

Richmond (3.5 miles) is a charming market town on the borders of Wensleydale and Swaledale.It boasts an 11th-century castle, fine Georgian architecture, an 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 tea rooms 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 a mile, 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 visit to the quite brilliant Forbidden Corner, an attraction full of statues and hidden surprises, 17 miles away near Middleham.

The historic village of Easby, home to Easby Abbey is just 2.5 miles away. Set on the banks of the River Swale, the Abbey is the perfect spot for a picnic in the summer months. There are lots of other breathtaking historical sites to explore in the Dales, including the stunning Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal, 26 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 (under an hour’s drive on a clear run) you have lots of choice 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.
