The cosy living room is traditional in style with a wood burner for cooler evenings. On the first floor are three bedrooms. The master bedroom has a kingsize bed, the second bedroom is light and airy with a double bed. The third bedroom is perfect for children, with bunk bed. There are fabulous views of Richmond castle from the bedroom windows. The family bathroom features a traditional free standing, roll-top bathtub with an overhead shower. Quirkily, the garden is situated on the first floor where there is a relaxing sun room, with comfy sofa the perfect spot to enjoy a morning coffee or a glass of wine as the sun goes down. The sun room leads out onto the enclosed patio area with pretty garden space and a hot tub which is perfect for relaxing at the end of the day.
Perfectly situated just a short stroll from the cobbled market square, you could simply park up the car and enjoy all that Richmond has to offer on foot. There is an excellent choice of eating places, pubs and coffee shops. The famous Norman castle dominates the skyline, with circular walks around the riverbanks taking you past The Station, a bustling centre hosting art and craft exhibitions, a three-screen cinema, café, independent shops, a micro-brewery and an ice cream parlour. On the same site there is an indoor swimming pool and health club. Richmond, known as the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales, is well placed to visit Swaledale, Wensleydale and the North York Moors National Park. The Coast to Coast walk passes by The Station and through Swaledale, but there are also many other walks to be enjoyed. Nearby Reeth is a good starting point for walks and cycling. Visit the Wensleydale Creamery or Leyburn, a charming town with a Friday market in the main square, and nearby Middleham has a magnificent castle and is also well known for its horse racing stables. There are a number of waterfalls in the area, one just 5 minutes walk away from the cottage in Richmond, and further afield there is Hardraw Force near Hawes and pretty Aysgarth Falls. Shop, pub and restaurant 500 yards.

Six of us were celebrating a 50th birthday with a long weekend at Flints Cottage. The cottage and it’s facilities, as well as the location were superb, with everything that Richmond has to offer on the doorstep. There was plenty of space for 6 adults in the cottage, although a second shower would be handy (we did wonder if there was one behind a locked door in bedroom 1). We were only given 5 bath towels despite there being 6 of us on the booking, and the radiators could do with bleeding as there was no heat in bedroom 1. However these are minor things and I would recommend and stay at Flints Cottage again.
