Whisk yourself and your favourite person off to our latest luxury retreat, The Old School Rooms. Located in the heart of Richmond, North Yorkshire, this luxury hideaway offers two stylish apartments, The Swaledale and The Wensleydale. Ideal for an anniversary, a mini break or a last minute romantic getaway in North Yorkshire. Escape as a couple or book both properties with friends or family.
Charming and welcoming in every way, both apartments are newly renovated, and designed with romance in mind. The striking minimalist design is paired with artwork from local artists, sumptuous sofas and the comfiest of beds. The Old School Rooms are a perfect countryside break, easily accessible to the town yet tucked-away enough to offer a quintessentially English idyllic getaway.
The Wensleydale is located on the ground floor, making it the more accessible of the two properties with a few steps between the bedroom and living area. The contemporary design is accented with rich ochre furnishings, whilst the kitchen and en-suite bathroom are white and bright. This is also a dog friendly apartment, with a small additional room for the pooch to sleep in.
The Swaledale on the first floor is a pet free holiday home. The open plan living space has lovely large windows letting in plenty of natural light, and is well suited to homeworking if you can’t break away from the daily grind. The bedroom is en-suite with plenty of storage space, and a concealed double bed makes it well suited to small or young families.
The Old School Rooms are located in the bustling market town of Richmond, North Yorkshire. Sitting on the hilltop above the River Swale, it offers the perfect way to explore without having to jump in the car. Narrow streets and alleyways join up to the cobbled marketplace lined with artisan eateries, boutique shops and tempting tearooms. Famous the 11th century medieval castle, walk along the castle walls and down to the River Swale. The majestic Richmond Falls are a true delight. Then, head to The Station for afternoon tea and a well-deserved slice of cake.
Don’t forget your walking boots as Richmond is the ideal location for keen walkers, cyclists and nature lovers. Explore plenty of walks from your doorstep, including the famous Little Drummer Boy route and part of the Coast-to-Coast route runs along the river.
Further afield, discover the many top attractions in the Yorkshire Dales. Nearby towns of Barnard Castle, Masham, Leyburn and Ripon offer a variety of shops, heritage sites, beautiful gardens and more to explore. The North York Moors National Park is only a 40-minute drive away, and if you enjoy fish and chips then why not take a trip to the Yorkshire Coast, only an hour’s drive away.
