Step through the front door of this luxury dog-friendly holiday home and you will find yourself in a boutique bolthole. This is a calming, tranquil escape that boasts a central town location. It is a short walk away from the hustle and bustle of Richmond, North Yorkshire, which is full of independent boutiques and a host of artisan eateries. This charming self-catering apartment is one of two at The Old School Rooms.

Contemporary meets classic inside, with whitewashed wall panelling throughout, striking local artwork, and modern lighting overhead. The neutral modern décor is accented with ochre furnishings. A cosy open plan sitting room is the perfect place to relax at the end of a busy day exploring the Yorkshire Dales with your canine companion. The comfy sofa with striking Lucy Pittaway cushions is made for snuggling up on with a good book. Later, turn on the smart TV for film night or indulge in your favourite box sets after a day’s adventure.

We recommend making the most of the delicious local produce North Yorkshire has to offer. Whether from the Saturday market or from the butcher, baker or greengrocer, settle in around the dining table which seats four. The open-plan kitchen is fully equipped with all the essentials needed in a luxury self-catering apartment. There is an electric oven with induction hob, fridge freezer, dishwasher, and the all-important coffee machine.

Outside is a shared small bistro table, tucked away in the open courtyard. It's great for weekenders to enjoy a glass of something before heading out for something to eat in Richmond.

The heavenly bedroom offers a sumptuous space to retreat after a day exploring. While away the morning in the king-sized bed swathed in super soft bedding, luxury linens and cosy cushions, completed by the large velvet headboard. There is a large mirror and plenty of storage space. Adjoining is a contemporary en-suite bathroom. Perfect for wake-me-up moments, step under the overhead rainfall shower while the heated towel rail keeps towels warm and fluffy.

In the sitting room is a sofa bed, suitable for a child at a small additional charge. For new families, this is also a great baby-friendly bolthole. A cot and highchair are available on request.

Parking for one car is off-street in the shared courtyard. The modern kitchen is well-equipped for your stay, with cutlery, crockery, cookware and a few under-sink items to get you going. There is an iron, and a washer dryer. Wi-fi runs throughout, making it very suitable for home working. Arrival is from 4pm, and check-out is 10am.

Enjoy a welcome pack, with items such as bread, butter, milk, a selection of speciality teas and coffee, and some capsules for the Lavazza capsule coffee machine. You will have high-quality bed linen, towels, soap and hand wash in the bedroom and bathroom.

This property is paw-fect for one pooch, with an additional room for them to sleep in. For those guests with reduced mobility, this accommodation has a ground floor bedroom and bathroom, with three steps down to the open plan living room.

A spacious and luxurious abode perfect for two, guests can also book The Swaledale upstairs at the Old School Rooms for more family or friends.

This ground floor apartment offers easy access for guests with reduced mobility. There is an internal small set of stairs between the bedroom and the living area.

In The Area

The Old School Rooms are located in the bustling market town of Richmond, North Yorkshire. Sitting on the hilltop above the River Swale, it is perfect for exploring what’s on offer 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.

Richmond is most famous for its 11th century medieval castle. Walks along the castle walls and down to the River Swale, with its majestic waterfalls, are a true delight. We recommend you pop into The Station for afternoon tea and a well-deserved slice of cake. The old railway building is now home to a cinema, real ale brewery, ice cream parlour and art gallery.
