Property code: G0180

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.

Venture out into the Yorkshire Dales National Park when you stay at this immaculate, bijou holiday home for two with your best furry friend. Find many footpaths to follow through picturesque countryside and make trips to dog-friendly sights and attractions in the area from your base in the town of Richmond. Head up to the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty for days out together in spectacular scenery. The historic, one-bedroom cottage on the edge of the vibrant town has been expertly and exquisitely renovated to offer all three of you very comfortable accommodation.

Step into the period, terraced house to find its inviting open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is perfect for a romantic break. Switch on the living flame fire and unwind in front of the TV or a DVD while your furry friend stretches out on the rug. Prepare tasty meals in your kitchen area and enjoy cosy dinners together at the table. Bid your perfect pet goodnight, then climb the open-tread oak and glass staircase up to your bedroom and its en-suite wet room. A second TV can be found up here too, and a handy washer/dryer is located in the kitchen.

Enjoy a 4-mile circular walk from the market square in Richmond. This route passes close to Richmond Castle before dropping down onto the River Swale and following a disused railway line back to town. Rest tired paws and have some refreshments in one of the town’s dog-friendly pubs. Make your way to the edge of the Yorkshire Dales 2.5 miles away, to follow footpaths through the beautiful landscape. Visit striking Middleham Castle, once home to Richard III: this is 12 miles from your base. Wander the grounds with your pup and marvel at the ruins.

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