Town: The ancient market town of Richmond is situated at the entrance to Swaledale, a prominent hilltop site to the north of the River Swale. With a maze of cobbled streets and narrow alleys – or 'wynds' – this town has over nine centuries of history. Growing up around the castle - a Norman fortress dating back to 1071 – Richmond literally means 'strong hill' and is derived from the Old English 'Riche-mont'. The River Swale runs through the town itself and provides not only lovely walks, but also safe paddling areas and the occasional small waterfall. Radiating from the market place, where a weekly market and monthly farmer's market are still observed, the lovely cobbled streets are lined with numerous shops, pubs and restaurants.
Additional amenities include: high chair, cooker.Read more

From the welcoming bottle of wine one the table when we arrived, we knew that we were going to enjoy this break, and were not disappointed! It was a beautiful bungalow, with lovely views out over rolling fields and hills, so tranquil. We have visited Richmond many times before, but never stopped in a holiday home there and were 'over the moon' with the cottage for location and a comprehensive list of fixtures/fitttings. The owners were ever so friendly(next door) but without that 'big brother is watching you' attitude! Truly a lovely holiday home which we will return to, if we may, Thank you on behalf of my wife and I.
Excellent value and service in a nice location

I required a small cottage for a weekend stay, and this was in a good location on the outskirts of Richmond and good value. Service was excellent with milk in the fridge and mince pies on the table when we arrived!
just like home

Good value for money. Bit lacking on culinary utensils. Bedrooms on small side. Pleasant walking and walking distance to Richmond etc.
