Our Two Richmond Cottages

Staying in one of our cottages offers all the convenience of town with the beauty & freedom of our glorious countryside. Located on Cravengate, the Market Place is 5 - 10 minutes’ walk and the River Swale and Billy Banks Woods are even nearer.

We offer a warm welcome, attention to detail and high standards of care at Old Cello Workshop and Garden Cottage. Our aim is to give our visitors a pleasant place to stay where they can relax and make themselves at home, whilst enjoying all that Richmond, Swaledale and the surrounding area have to offer.

Both cottages are inspected annually by VisitEngland. Recently the inspector wrote: "Two unique cottages, buildings sympathetically converted to provide very good quality holiday accommodation. Good on-site parking at Garden Cottage, and sufficient off-road parking for Old Cello Workshop given the location.

Both cottages within a short walking distance of the cobbled market square, restaurants, Castle and the riverside. Gardens are a speciality field of the owners - superb access and grounds at Garden Cottage...Excellent hospitality and freshly arranged garden flowers for guests".

Together our cottages sleep 12 in 1 king, 3 double and 2 twin bedrooms. They are located within about 500 yards of each other, one at the bottom and one-half way up Cravengate.


Old Cello Workshop

This is a charming, unique cottage that sleeps 6. It is just a lovely place to stay - we know, we have lived there! We converted this pretty cottage from a stringed-instrument workshop. In a former life it was a barn and we believe it dates back at least 400-years.

King-size, double and twin bedrooms provide accommodation for 6 people. Children are welcome, as are well-mannered dogs...

Garden Cottage

Garden Cottage faces south with views across the garden to Billy Banks Woods. The view east is of Richmond's Norman castle - the rising sun pierces the great, arched window.

This pretty, Victorian gardener's cottage was built in the former kitchen garden of Elizabethan Yorke House. The cottage looks over a secure, south-facing private garden with spectacular views of Richmond castle & Billy Banks Woods...
