The Garden Cottage

Richmond, Yorkshire

A large stone-flagged Georgian cottage on the hill with big sloping garden, near to town and countryside. Helpful owners are next door


3 bedrooms


Sleeps 6


Just off the street which leads to the river is this pretty house on the hill. Garden Cottage, listed and delightful, was teased back to life by kind, helpful owners Dennis and Marcia who live next door. One of its many charms is its garden, large, sloping and full of shrubs, apple trees, herbs, borders and magnificent monkey puzzle tree; a mellow old brick wall runs down one side. You are half way up steep Cravengate and the lofty setting is stunning; convenient too, a five-minute walk from town, woodland and river. There’s lots of space inside too, and plenty of original features. Paintwork is perfect, walls nicely patterned, curtains well-hung, and the traditional striped sofas are pristine. The main bedroom (with new en suite) is gorgeous with double bed and rafters; another has a suede headboard; windows have long views over the Norman castle and the atmospheric old town. For cosy nights in: books, games, DVDs, iPod dock and a piano. For nights out: two cinemas, the Georgian Theatre Royal and several enjoyable places to dine. A gem from which to explore the Dales.
