"Gorgeous cottage in a wonderful location." 4* Visit Britain rating. Alastair Sawday recommended. Pretty, Victorian gardener's cottage built in former kitchen garden of Elizabethan Yorke House. The cottage looks over a south-facing private garden with spectacular views of Richmond castle & Billy Banks Woods. 5 mins walk to Market Place, 5 mins to River Swale & woods. Ideal mix of town, with its shops, pubs, restaurants, theater, museums, cinema, castle, parks, abbey & swimming baths, and countryside with walks, cycling, riding & beautiful Swaledale winding its way west of the cottage. The front door opens into a stone flagged passage leading to the garden & kitchen, which is well-fitted. Lounge, kitchen, downstairs loo, two double bedrooms & one twin. Bathroom with bath & separate shower. En suite bathroom to master bedroom. Lovely, light cottage with most windows facing south. Wi-fi. TV/DVD. Radio/CD, Ipod dock. Families welcome. Dogs by arrangement. Private parking.
