Property code: 77254

The perfect retreat for couples wanting to enjoy some quiet time together, set in a great location for walker’s, cyclists, historians and those who truly appreciate the beauty of the countryside.

Enjoy some quality time together with a trip to the Yorkshire Dales, where hikers and historians alike will fall in love with the glorious surroundings. Perfectly appointed for two couples holidaying together, this property happily sleeps four guests across two bedrooms. Naturally, it wouldn’t be a true walking holiday without the accompaniment of man’s best friend, so be sure to bring two canine companions along with you.

 

Head upstairs via external stone steps to find this charming property, kept homely, comfortable and cosy throughout. After a long day of exploring the Dales by foot (or by paw), settle into the snug lounge and switch on the TV, enjoying quality time together before heading to bed. The wood burner-effect gas fire creates a welcoming glow in the centre of the room and is no doubt where you’ll find your hounds happily snoozing away. Yorkshire sunlight floods the kitchen thanks to Velux windows and a skylight, whilst French doors allow easy access to an al fresco dining area. Let Fido and Rover have free reign of the outdoor space as you prepare dinner or enjoy a BBQ on the patio.

 

Be sure to spend time exploring historic Richmond, a traditional market town with charming medieval castle (0.5 miles) and the bustling River Swale (0.5 miles). Follow the river and sniff out some adventure in the nearby Yorkshire Dales, a sprawling Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with an abundance of sheep to chase and sticks to fetch. Jump in the car to enjoy long drives along the beautiful country roads, stopping off in Hubberholme (25 miles) and Kettlewell (29.5 miles) to view some of the area’s prettiest villages. Alternatively, head a little further north to discover the North Pennines AONB (23 miles), another option for an abundance of routes for walkies.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Lovely cottage within easy reach of many interesting countryside walks with the convenience of being on the edge of a town. The cottage was very clean, warm and cosy. It has a well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds and a decent shower. The outdoor area was pleasant and would be great in the warmer weather. Unloading on a busy road was a bit trickyRead more but not a big deal. We enjoyed our stay very much. Hide

Comfortable cosy cottage in a fantastic location - close to town yet quiet, and easy to drive into the countryside for walks. Very comfortable for 2 adults and would also be fine for a younger family but possibly a bit cosy for 4 adults. Cottage was well equipped and was great to be able to stay with our dog.

Galloway cottage was perfect for our week in Richmond. The location was great but the hill walk on return from the centre is very steep so this needs taking into account.

Cottage was in perfect location for walks and visiting town centre. Richmond is a beautiful place with a good mixture of high street shops and boutiques. Only downside was no parking, however we were aware of this when booking. Cars can be parked over the road. Great park and skate park nearby for the children and lots of country walks with the dogRead mores. Best cottage we have used, all smaller bits included such as condiments and cleaning supplies. Would not hesitate to book again Hide

A comfortable and well located property. Owners very thoughtful in providing many home comforts and equipment. We liked the pleasant and well maintained outside area. Good base for exploring surrounding countryside. Should mention hilly location that may not have suited less fit guests.
