About the Owner
I work in the health service. I also live on the edge of Richmond, so that I or my partner will be on hand to welcome you and resolve any problems should they arise. I love my little cottage in the heart of town! Everything is so close and handy and there is lots of character. There is always so much going on in Richmond and it well located for the Dales and the Moors so that I am sure you will discover whatever you want from a holiday in this region.

We had a lovely week away from it all in this lovely cottage which is situated close to the Market Place and the Castle Walk. There are numerous cafes, bars and restaurants close by. The cottage has a small patio area which was perfect for relaxing in after a day out walking and we even got sun tanned too( in Yorkshire!!) Lovely place to chill out and relax but.lots to see too.

Great location in great village
This is a fabulous cottage situated in a great market town. There's plenty to do and see in the town and around the area. The cottage offers all you need. Very clean and comfortable, close to many places to eat, I counted at least 15 pubs. Free wifi. The owners Graham and Anne were very friendly and helpful. Would stay here again and recommend it to others.

Great Place to Stay
Accommodation was in an excellent location for the centre of Richmond , within walking distance to the main places of interest. We were made to feel very welcome and the place was well appointed and very clean. Our only wish is that we were not staying longer.
