Plot your next country escape to our latest restful self-catering holiday cottage. Nestled in the heart of Richmond, the cottage is tucked away to give four guests (plus a pooch) a great hideaway to explore both town and country.

Hang up your coats and take off your boots in the entrance hall then wander through to the living and dining area at the heart of the cottage. The sitting room has comfortable seating with plenty of room to sprawl out across the three-seater sofa and comfy armchair. Rich blue tones, one of a kind wallpaper, scattered velvet cushions, and fun local artwork add charm to the room.

Nestle around the flickering wood burning stove, the perfect spot to withdraw to at the end of a busy day. There is a large Smart TV for catching up on your favourite box sets or enjoying a family film night. On a warm summer day, fling open the French doors to the patio and garden and let in the fresh Yorkshire air.

This luxury self-catering cottage has a modern kitchen with the essentials needed to whip up a feast for your group. The kitchen adjoins the open living and dining space. Enjoy cooking local delicacies from your days out exploring the area, or order a delicious takeaway from Richmond. The spacious dining table seats six or settle in for more casual feasting by the fireside.

Providing sheer bliss at the end of the day, both bedrooms boast king-size beds which can be made into twins upon arrival. Wake up to dulcet birdsong whilst sipping coffee and planning the day ahead. The interiors will impress and transport you to a calmer, more tranquil space. The master bedroom includes a full wall of wardrobes for those who don't travel light, as well as a smart tv.

A shared bathroom offers a relaxing bath tub, a separate shower, and a heated towel rail to keep your towels fluffy after a long soak.

Enter The Old Potting Shed into the enclosed courtyard. Rattan-style outdoor furniture in front of the sitting room French doors is a great spot to enjoy a morning coffee or afternoon tea. After a day exploring the Yorkshire Dales, crack open the fizz and sink into the alfresco hot tub whilst star gazing under the dark Yorkshire skies. Families with children or groups with a pooch will enjoy the enclosed garden which is split over two levels.

There is wi-fi throughout and a Smart TV. The kitchen is well equipped for your stay, with a dishwasher, washer dryer, and some under-sink items to get you going. A locally sourced welcome hamper includes tea, coffee, milk and logs on arrival. The bedrooms include high-quality bed linen, towels, and a small selection of toiletries.

Parking for up to two cars is on the street opposite this detached cottage, accessed via steps down to the pavement. It is a great base for exploring all that is on offer without having to jump in the car.

This is a dog friendly cottage, so nobody needs to get left behind! Suitable for one pooch, there are hard floors through the sitting room and kitchen.
