Upside Down Cottage is perfect for couples, and lies in the heart of Yorkshire. As the name suggests, the cottage has the bedroom and shower room downstairs, and the living room and kitchen upstairs. Semi-detached, it is heated by state-of-the-art infrared panels, and has a Smart TV in the living area, as well as a TV in the bedroom. Set in the Georgian market town of Richmond, it nestles just off the market square in a quiet location, perfect for exploring the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors. In the evening you can enjoy a meal at one of the many quality restaurants and bars in this wonderful town.
Richmond is possibly most famous for its magnificent castle that overlooks the town, its market and, of course, the River Swale flowing through, with riverside walks in both directions. This is a walker’s paradise, with walks right from the doorstep, heading out both east and west of the River Swale; it is also on the route of the famous Coast to Coast walk and the Pennine Way. The scenery on either side of the River Swale is a delightful backdrop for a walk to St Agatha’s Abbey and the church in the nearby hamlet of Easby, whilst the walk from the castle to the abbey is a must for nature lovers.
There is plenty to do in Richmond, including a leisure centre, a golf course, a theatre and a cinema, as well as plenty of niche shops, tea rooms and pubs. Other amenities include golf and fishing, details of which will be available in the welcome pack. Within the Yorkshire Dales National Park you will find many tourist attractions. At its northern tip, the unspoilt valley of Swaledale winds its way north west into the northern Pennines, and is famous for its wildflower meadows, heather-clad moors and waterfalls. The nearby town of Thirsk is just a short drive away with its links to James Herriot, and a walk or drive to the top of Sutton Bank will reward you with a fantastic view of neighbouring North York Moors National Park. There are many quaint Yorkshire villages, historic abbeys and a patchwork of fields and countryside to explore. One visit will never be enough. Beach 24 miles. Shop, pubs and restaurants 50 yards.
