Out and about you can literally start right from the door. Tucked away in a courtyard, the cottage neighbours Richmond’s famous Norman castle and its grounds. The cottage is within a stones’ throw of the centre of this popular Georgian market town with its eclectic range of shops, restaurants and cafés. Richmond is steeped in history and is an architectural gem with its Georgian theatre, medieval abbey at Easby and picturesque market square where you can sit and watch the world go by. Explore the cobbled streets, enjoy some great shopping, take a picnic or enjoy a circular walk around the banks of the River Swale. The walk takes you past The Station, which has been restored to include a 3-screen cinema, a micro-brewery and bar, an ice-cream parlour, a delicatessen, an artisan bakery and a café with a gallery of local art. Next to The Station there is also Richmond’s indoor swimming pool. There is something here for everyone.
Richmond sits at the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales National Park, making this the perfect base for outdoor enthusiasts to explore the sights of Swaledale and the Yorkshire Dales. There are plenty of riverside and woodland walks nearby which continue into the wonderful countryside beyond. One of the most popular walks is Wainwright’s Coast to Coast, which passes through Richmond taking you through some breathtaking countryside with amazing views. To enjoy the wider area visit one of the many pretty Yorkshire towns or villages, such as Thirsk, Ripon, Harrogate, Leyburn, Hawes or Reeth, all of which are close by. There is also the opportunity to watch the horse racing at Catterick and York racecourses. The cathedral city of Durham is just over half an hour away and is certainly worth a day trip to explore, as is historic Barnard Castle and Bowes Museum. Shop, pub and restaurant 50 yards.
