Perfect for exploring the stunning Yorkshire countryside, this charming Grade II-listed cottage, set just on the outskirts of the historic town of Richmond, is a perfect romantic retreat for two.
Set on the borders of Wensleydale and Swaledale, Richmond is a historic and thriving town and features a large cobbled market square, a choice of tearooms, independent shops, pubs and restaurants and a fine 11th century castle. Easby Abbey is just a mile away. Beyond Richmond lie the glorious Yorkshire Dales (about 2.5 miles to the outskirts) with miles of beautiful walks to enjoy. Among many attractions in the Dales are The Forbidden Corner (14 miles), Castle Bolton (13.5 miles) and the ruins of Richard III's castle at Middleham (12 miles). Heading north you explore the North Pennines and Barnard Castle (15 miles).
This property is a Grade II listed bijou one-bedroom urban pad in the heart of historic Richmond. With all of the town's attractions within half a mile, it's the perfect holiday retreat for couples or those travelling solo.
This fabulous little cottage has been styled using top notch materials and making outstanding use of the space available. Set down a terraced street in Richmond you really have the best of both worlds: direct access to this lovely town and all its eateries and shops as well as the stunning landscapes of Swaledale and the beautiful valley of Wensleydale, just a short drive away.
The property has an open-plan layout with the kitchen, dining area and lounge all sharing the same bright and warm space. Underfoot you'll find solid oak flooring and in the lounge area a contemporary living flame fire keeps everything nice and cosy. For your entertainment there's also a large LCD TV with DVD Player, and MP3 player and Wi-Fi included, so you can sink down into your comfy leather sofa and catch up online.
The sleek modern kitchen comes complete glossy white units, a black granite worktop and a rainbow effect splashback guaranteed to brighten up even the greyest of days. There's a top of range set of SMEG kitchen fixtures including a gas hob & oven, a washer/dryer and a fridge freezer. You'll also find a state-of-the-art microwave oven should you need it and the cute dining table is accompanied by 4 brightly coloured chairs. The overall ambiance is one of contemporary luxury, with a fun twist.
Up the solid oak and glass staircase, you'll find the delightful en-suite bedroom. Again, there is plenty of light and colour up here continuing the cheerful theme. Discover a king-size solid oak bed to retreat to each night, and there's a TV/DVD player so you can enjoy a lazy breakfast in bed. The bespoke en-suite wet room has been cleverly incorporated into the room alongside a wardrobe, again making excellent use of the space. Step into the gleaming white wet room each morning and awaken the senses: the perfect start to a day's sightseeing or walking in the Dales.
Please note this is a townhouse property so some noise from cars and the town should be expected. The cobbled market square is under half a mile as are the gorgeous riverside walks out into the countryside. This charming cottage is the perfect choice for solo travellers or couples hoping to combine town living with escapes into the Dales.
