The property has a beautiful location set within a large estate on the cusp of the Yorkshire Dales. With the coast to the east and the City of York to the south, it's an ideal base from which to strike out and discover these unique Yorkshire locations. Reeth (15 miles) and the stunning landscapes of Swaledale and Arkengarthdale (23 miles) are also within easy reach, and it’s well-placed for a day trip over the Lakes if you want to explore there too.
The property is set on the edge of a very pretty village. There's a great dining pub just a short walk away and if you're a bit of a foodie there are several more excellent dining pubs in the area as well as an award-winning deli, tea room and farm shop. It's also the perfect location if you enjoy walking. There are lots of beautiful walks from the doorstep and in fact the area is well known as a great starting point for walking - seasoned walkers come from miles around to set off from the village.
This stunning Yorkshire Cottage is just 3 miles away from Richmond, a historic market town with much to offer the discerning holidaymaker. Explore the cobbled market square or head up towards Richmond Castle for a slice of Yorkshire history. Just a short drive through Richmond takes you into the heart of the Yorkshire Dales proper. Head up towards Reeth and on towards Hawes in Wensleydale for a true taste of this magnificent countryside.
North of the cottage is the charming town of Barnard Castle (12 miles). Recently listed as one of the top 10 places to live in the UK, it's a pretty little place with a host of shops, cafes and pubs to explore. The excellent Bowes Museum is here and is well worth a visit. And as the name would suggest there's a historic castle to explore too.
Further south, you'll find the pretty market town of Northallerton (18 miles) where handsome Georgian houses line the long main street. The wonderful Betty's Tearooms is here as is a fantastic local deli, Lewis & Cooper's Food Emporium and of course the quintessentially Yorkshire department store of Barkers.
