This three-storey townhouse situated in the old Georgian town of Richmond promises an enticing getaway. Perfect for friends and families wanting a sociable setting with plenty on the doorstep.

Arrange to stay in this striking, contemporary holiday home with your friends and family and make the most of having everything the attractive Yorkshire town of Richmond benefits from close by. This four-bedroom property, which sleeps up to eight guests, is within the town, enabling you to just stroll out to explore its historic streets, and to potter in its independent shops and dine out in its eateries. Settle into the comfort of the stylish house during your break here. Unwind out in the sheltered courtyard garden on warm summer days and plan trips out into the Yorkshire Dales National Park or the North York Moors, with their picturesque landscapes and myriad of places to walk and cycle.

 

Wander into the bright, airy house at ground-floor level via the hall, where you can leave your outerwear. There is also a games room, with Smart TV, and a utility room down here, plus a super-king-size bedroom, with en-suite shower room and zip-and-link beds that can be separated into twins ahead of your arrival. Venture up the gorgeous oak and glass staircase to the first floor to discover another super-king-size zip-and-link room that can also be arranged as twins and has a door on to the outside space. There are also two king-size bedrooms up here, one with a Smart TV and the other with an en-suite shower room private terrace. The main living area at the house is situated on the second floor, where the kitchen, lounge and dining space all flow together beautifully. Spend time in here together taking in the views out across the town or watching the Smart TV. Pull a stool up to the breakfast bar in the central island and enjoy a fresh cup of coffee from the machine before setting forth to prepare dinner for your group. Dine inside or out, depending on the weather. On summer evenings, the courtyard garden is also a pleasant place to sit out and chat for a while after your meal. This modern home comes with off road parking for two cars.

Richmond is a charming market town on the borders of Wensleydale and Swaledale. It boasts an 11th-century castle, fine Georgian architecture, a historic Georgian theatre and a large cobbled market square as some of its many attractions. Stroll into town for a cup of Yorkshire tea at one of the many tearooms there or pop over for dinner at one of the excellent restaurants.

The gorgeous River Swale runs through the town and, across the river – less than 1 mile away – are the River Swale Waterfalls. You can walk in either direction along the river and deep into the countryside without having to go anywhere near the car. We also recommend exploring the restored former Richmond Railway Station which has lots to entertain young and old including a small cinema, cafe/restaurant, gallery, microbrewery and artisan bakery.

Richmond is also known as “The Gateway to the Dales” so expect stunning Dales scenery within minutes of leaving the town. Peppering this glorious countryside are countless attractive little towns and villages and, if you enjoy a bit of surreal entertainment, how about a visit to the quite brilliant Forbidden Corner, an attraction full of statues and hidden surprises, 14 miles away near Middleham.

Walk 2 miles from Richmond to the historic village of Easby, where you can also take in some impressive ruins. Head out of town to explore the magnificent Yorkshire Dales National Park. See Aysgarth Falls, 15.5 miles away, an enchanting, triple flight of waterfalls, which runs for almost 1 mile and is set in beautiful woodland.

There are lots of other breathtaking historic sites to explore in the Dales, including the stunning Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Garden, 30 miles, a World Heritage Site. This is a superb area for walkers and cyclists with many routes from the doorstep or just a short distance away, including Alfred Wainwright’s famous Coast to Coast Walk which passes close by. And with York, Harrogate and the North York Moors all within easy striking distance, you have lots of choices for day trips!

The house was fantastic - clean, modern, bright, and functional. It was a short walk to Richmond castle and was only a few blocks to restaurants, yet it was surprisingly quiet in the house. The furnishings were upscale and comfortable, and the appliances new. I confirmed in advance that the house had a washer and separate tumble dryer, as we were iRead moren the UK for 2 weeks and needed access to laundry - and both worked well (as did the drying rack and iron).

Absolutely superb house, beautifully designed and decorated in a wonderful central location but extremely quiet. Our family stayed for a night over the weekend and although ages ranged from three to seventy three it was ideal for everyone. They didnt want to leave and neither did we; very, very highly recommended - well done Alex!
