Bury St Edmunds Family
- Beautifully presented house that definitely had the 'wow factor'. Just needed the garden to be made completely dog proof for it to be perfect.

Meet Henry, a stunning large luxury cottage on the outskirts of historic Richmond in the Yorkshire Dales. This beautiful converted farmhouse sleeps up to 8 adults comfortably and is the perfect choice for a get-together with family or friends. Gorgeous interiors, an idyllic location and a wood-fired hot-tub to sink into each evening – what’s not to love about this handsome chap!
With the delightful market town of Richmond on the horizon, Henry’s location is the first reason to fall in love this large holiday cottage. Step into the hallway of this stylish farmhouse and discover many more…
The hallway in Henry leads through to a generous open plan kitchen and dining area featuring a large kitchen island and fabulous double height dining space. All of this space and light gives this part of the house a luxurious and glamorous feel, particularly looking up to the galleried landing above. Other little luxuries include underfloor heating, soft touch kitchen units and granite work surfaces. If you’re looking for a special place to cook and dine together with family and friends, this is it.
The kitchen / dining area leads through to the cosy sitting room, which again has an air of elegance and luxury. You’ll find a designer wood burning stove to curl up in front of as well as sumptuous furnishings and fixtures with a country-chic style. There’s also an LCD TV and music centre in here to keep you all entertained each evening.
All of the bedrooms in Henry have King-size beds which can be converted into single beds if required. The ground floor is home to a large master bedroom. With plenty of space and an en suite wet room, this is a good option for those with reduced mobility. There are a further 3 bedrooms upstairs; another master bedroom with an en suite bath and two double rooms sharing a family bathroom. Both of the bathrooms upstairs feature a bath with overhead showers.
Henry is set within the Yorkshire Dales National Park and is surrounded by open fields and woodland. There are beautiful gardens to enjoy with plenty of space for little ones to run around. There is also a wood-fired hot-tub out here, a great way to while away an evening under the stars!
Please note there is a small supplement if you wish to use the hot-tub.
Henry is set in open countryside just outside the charming market town of Richmond. Richmond boasts an 11th Century castle, fine Georgian architecture and a large cobbled market square as some of its many attractions. The town is a pleasant walk if you fancy striking out on foot for a cup of Yorkshire tea at one of the many tea rooms there.
Bordering Swaledale and Wensleydale, Richmond is also known as ‘The Gateway to the Dales’ so you can expect stunning Dales scenery just a short drive away. Peppering this glorious countryside are countless attractive little towns and villages. And if you have little ones to entertain, how about quite brilliant Forbidden Corner near Middleham or the lovely Hazel Brow Farm in Low Row…
The historic village of Easby, home to Easby Abbey, is just a few miles from the cottage. Set on the river Swale, the Abbey is the perfect spot for a picnic in the summer months. There are lots of other breath-taking historical sites to explore in the Dales, including the stunning Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal, a world heritage site.
This is a superb area for walkers and cyclists with many routes from the site or just a short distance away. The famous coast to coast walking route passes within a few hundred metres of the site. For more info take a look at www.walkingenglishman.com/dales or www.daleswalks.co.uk/walks
