Town: Situated at the entrance to Swaledale, the ancient market town of Richmond boasts cobbled streets and narrow alleys -or 'wynds' - that have evolved over nine centuries. The town itself grew up around the local castle; a Norman fortress dating back to 1071 that is situated high above the river. Even the name 'Richmond' can be traced to the fortification, as 'Riche-mont' literally means 'strong hill'. Within the town narrow streets and alleys radiate from the cobbled Market Place which is still home a weekly market and monthly farmer's market whilst throughout the rest of the week visitors can enjoy numerous shops, pubs and restaurants.

The cottage was fantastic.It was clean, and the owners had even left tea,coffee and milk, which I thought was a lovely touch. The photos are exactly as the cottage, not misleading in any way. It was quiet, which is what we were after and close enough to Richmond centre to have a little walk up. There was even a washer and dryer. The owners were fantastic when I rang up for details, so an all round brilliant service.
Just as we hoped for!!

Foxglove cottage was well equipped for a family of four. Spotlessly clean and nobody else's "leftovers" in the kitchen cupboards. Warm and cosy, small but spacious, Owner often around and about to sort things out (pipes froze due to extreme temperatures at xmas) Tastefully decorated with xmas tree etc. Lovely lights in the gardens
