Thank you for letting us stay in your beautifully restored cottage. You have thought of everything. There was nothing we couldn't find in either a drawer, cubby hole or in the summerhouse that we needed to make a perfect stay. The summerhouse is without doubt the star of the show. We either sat on the deck or inside on chillier nights until we were forced to retire to the big, comfy bed, exhausted from our day's excursions and exertions. We have walked miles. This was our first walking holiday and I am sure we will have more experienced the fabulous scenery.

Previous Customer,

Thank you for a wonderful stay. The cottage is just what we were looking for - quiet, quaint and luxury finish. We never got tired of sitting on the bench and summer house looking at the beautiful views of Swaledale. We have loved exploring the area.

Previous Customer,

Thanks for a lovely stay. The weather was a little varied for August but we still enjoyed several lovely walks. The cottage is warm and comfortable to come home to and the views from the summerhouse are very special.

Previous Customer,

Thank you for a lovely holiday. The cottage has been perfect. Has everything you could ask for. Really enjoyed all the walks. The views are the best.

Previous Customer,

Just a lovely cottage in an amazing location. We particularly loved the fire! Walking around here was amazing, regardless of the rain. Will definitely come back.

Rhys from L,

we have really enjoyed our stay at your lovely cottage. So very clean, comfortable and cosy. Nothing you haven't thought of. Very comfortable bed, decent shower, everything perfect. Loved the summerhouse - had our meals out there ona couple of events - great weather for September.

Tracy and B,

This cottage is pretty perfect! Top marks to the housekeeper, it is spotless. We have stayed in many cottages over the years and this is the best. Loved the summer house a strike of genius to have that! Three great evenings at the Punch Bowl. Lots and lots of walking. We'll definitely be back. Having seen the cottage back in 2015 when it was for sale we are so impressed with what the owner has achieved.

Karen & J,

We have really enjoyed our stay at your lovely cottage. So very clean (10/10 for the cleaner), comfortable and cosy. Nothing you haven't thought of. Very comfortable bed, decent shower (makes a change). Everything was perfect! Loved the summer house- we had our meals out there on a couple of evenings as the weather was great for September. We loved Reeth and Richmond was great too. Two great meals at The Punchbowl. We hope to return. Thank you!

Tracy & B,

The property was what we expected we loved the cottage and enjoyed our stay.

Julia A,

Thank you very much for an excellent stay, the cottage has been absolutely ideal for us. It is so well equipped with everything thought of, a real home away from home. The views are simply stunning and we have loved having the log fire going every evening - very cosy. It is a beautiful renovation and the decor is very classy and in keeping with a country cottage. We found a great walk from the cottage to Muker and back that was beautiful, took us 5 hours for a 20km walk with stops for lunch and a pint. Thanks we will be back.

Sarah & D,

Thank you for sharing with us your lovely cosy cottage. It has been beautifully and imaginatively renovated. You have thought of everything one might possibly need. We've spent the last 6 days working on our renovation project across the road so it has been great to come back to relax , cook dinner in your tardis like kitchen and enjoy the log fire. The weather has been a bit grim but the Swaledale views are always special - many thanks.

Anne & P,


Area Information

Richmond is a leafy, vibrant market town boasting an impressive castle, a vast cobbled market place and an elegant Georgian district. It was formed by the Normans in 1071 and the town grew up around the castle which still dominates the skyline. It is said that the walls of the former imprisonment of King William are 11 feet thick and the exhibition centre within the grounds offers an impressive background into the history of this famous landmark.

The cobbled market square is an exciting and vibrant place with plenty of quirky shops, art galleries and a good choice of pubs, restaurants and bars. There is a wonderful georgian theatre hosting shows to suit all tastes in the town. Every Saturday there is a traditional outdoor market, joined by a popular farmers market once a month. The town is also the gateway to wonderful and unspoilt countryside, making it an ideal base for cycling, walking and other outdoor pursuits. The historic towns of York and Harrogate are also within easy reach.
